Streetcar to Disaster

Last night we joined our friends Darrell and Mary Anne at the Mercado San Augustin, a hipsterish collective of shops and eating places in a Mexican-style enclosed patio a few blocks from downtown Tucson.

Bring Me a Pepsi, This Is Getting Good (Updated)

This article started making the rounds yesterday. One paragraph catches my eye:
