    About 20 years ago in Stowe Vermont where there are numerous regulations about most things (down to tiny details) a guy was denied a development permit for a chunk of land on the popular Mountain Road, the opposition being led by nearby property owners. So he did his revenge homework, found that farms have very loose regulations, so he put in a pig lot, many stinky swine producing waves of pig manure odor. 400 pigs in all, the land was sweetened with chicken dung as well.

    p.s. make that about 40 years ago...time, it flies!

    BAK - Biking Across Kansas

    The Register's Great Bike Ride Across Iowa has too many people for me - it appeared to be a rolling party. BAK was a little more family friendly. We even had a couple of cops from Long Island come and then return with their families for a few years.

    The time I spent there was mainly around the Iowa side of the Quad Cities.

    I am lecturing in Waterloo, Iowa in a few weeks. This will be my first official lecture in my new capacity and it is nice to kick it off in such a world-renowned City.

    I hope so. I am headed to Nashville Sunday and I am going to eat with friends at a cool East Nashville Indian restaurant.

    Can't spork, but can give you a shout-out. I have been trying to figure out just how to make this joke. Now I can steal this!
