Nonsense takes center stage as city honors art movement

Does this embracing nonsense, chance, and randomness apply to paying our taxes and utility bills?

I think that I will be observing this Dadaism next year each month by rolling dice every time my utility bill is due. I will then write a check for the amount that comes up on the dice and walk to my front door and release the check into the wind. If it is meant to be paid, the check will find its way to the correct office.

It is so clear to me now that this randomness, chance, and nonesense business is how the city chooses which five pot holes they fill each Spring, or which streets get plowed after a snow, or even, where a roundabout is to be installed at an intersection.

What is your opinion of the city's snow removal efforts?

I still haven't seen a plow / salt truck come down my street. Maybe, they all got stuck in the roundabouts.

What is the worst apartment rental experience you've ever had?

I rented a room while in college from a landlord that knew people.

There was a gas leak in the line that went to a kitchen stove. The girl down the hall called the Gas Company and they came right over, shut off the gas, and red tagged it.

The very next morning, the landlord came over, yanked the red tag off and said nothing.

Never fixed it. Nothing.

We called the Gas Company again. They never showed up again, never said a word about ever being there, etc.

I learned then that the landlords in this town have all of the power.

Just thinking out loud.....

Seems to me that the following book should be banned for sex, drugs, nudity, total disregard for self or humanity, etc.

The American Library Association can be thanked for keeping an eye on our First Amendment rights.


If I have to keep an open mind about Intelligent Deisgn, I think it only fair that the Board keep an open mind about these books.
