I had an interview today that went very well and I'd be surprised if I don't get an offer within the next few weeks. There are three facilities I would jump between (one in BR north of LSU, one at Geismar, not sure where the third is) and the manager said he recommends new hires live in Gonzales bec...

I'm a field manager for one of the major railroads. I loved my job in my former location but I took a lateral to another spot where the work load is killing me. In fact, the manager I replaced (an Army combat veteran) was hospitalized for exhaustion before he quit.
I have just applied for two pos...

I'm critical of the police when criticism is due but to act like police are the major threat to the African American community is asini...

My work is moving me to a very small town and I'm looking for an apartment. I'm just doing online research right now and my options are very limited. The complex that looks the nicest (from Google Earth) is a tax credit apartment complex.
Does anyone have experience with a complex like this? My ...

I was on a flight where we landed at DFW and as we were taxiing, some hipster ran to the front of the plane and tried to open the door yelling that we had to get off the plane now and it was an emergency. It then started yelling "I'm in love!" and it got taken down by a male flight attendant. I wa...

Your body better be ready. I enjoy following this sort of thing. I take care of my business so I think I'm fine but I'll probably back up my files and change a password or two out of an abundance of caution.
