Amazon chooses NYC, Northern Virginia for new headquarters

quote [ Amazon is expected to evenly divide its pledged 50,000 new jobs between the new offices, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news. ]

Why not - because you sure as hell wouldn't want West Virginia, or Mississippi, or any of the myriad of rust-belt states that has the space and need for the jobs to have them. Of course, why would Appalachia want to train or prep for jobs like these anyway, when they were all waiting on that giant comeback of coal mining they were promised?

Because life isn’t supposed to be fair. ]

No scam too outrageous

Music Maker Relief Foundation - Preserving the Soul of America's Music

quote [ “I used to tap dance,” he says. “I did the same beat with my feet as my hands, but now my hips are too sticky. Algia Mae and I used to go around. We can’t dance anymore because she’s had a stroke and I’ve had a couple of strokes. Her son does it now.” ]

Website is a little convoluted but features very good material and a newsletter – did you know one of the Como Mamas was victim of a drive-by-shooting?

I recommend reading about / buying the ”Biscuits For Your Outside Man” sampler.

Also, thumb source

BHP iron ore train services recommence in WA as a second train derails

quote [ A second iron ore train has derailed in WA's outback within a week.

Mineral Resources Limited and Arc Infrastructure have confirmed that about 30 empty iron ore wagons derailed south of Norseman on Sunday morning, following the deliberate derailment of a runaway BHP train in the state's north earlier in the week. ]

Maybe they need to add more humans back on the trains to weigh them down and keep them on track.
