Oh, the irony...

Ironic Times

Proposed “Hyperloop” Will Whisk Passengers From NY to LA in 45 Minutes

House Passes Farm Bill Without Funds for Food Stamps
Why should the government give hungry Americans food when it can give the money directly to farmers and cut out the middleman.
That's a perfect example of Repug "thinking".

After numerous complaints from Denny's, IHOP
Heh. It's a hundred miles from DV to either of those. At least.

Actually, the closet Denny's to Death Valley is in the Stagecoach Motel and Casino in Beatty, Nevada. Beatty is approximately 20 miles from the border with Death Valley National Park's "Nevada Triangle".

Yes, been there, done that. (The Denny's, that is). Other than the brew pub and the sandwiches and mini-pizzas at the gas station, it's the only place to eat in Beatty.

closet->closest. Bloody Blogger editor gets worse every day, it doesn't display correctly in Chrome (Google's very own browser!).

I stayed overnight in Beatty once. Better than Vegas because it's not Vegas. You're right about the Denny's but I always think of DV in relation to the California side. I think that stretch of 95 in NV is mostly famous for Area 51 and the brothels that are the pinpoints of light that can be seen from space. :-)

I use Chrome these days because my tech says it's the most secure. I don't particularly like it, like Firefox better.
