    Alllllllll Aboard the Crazy Train

    Hope this is the right spot... This could go in several spots

    The last three days here my little bass ackward county in SW Wa, There has been three huge events.
    One: a very nice restaurant that was recently featured on the DDD just got her liquor license revoked and her booze confiscated due to not following the rules. I feel bad for her employees, but rules are rules. Alot of false outrage on the local FB pages. She set herself up to fail.

    Two: Same day There is an old huge building that is considered a "landmark". It's been a dump and an eyesore for over 30 years. It was built on a flood plain. It has changed hands many times with bunch of deferred maintenance to the point it's now a huge public safety issue. The city has told the owners that the top floor is unstable and needs to be vacated. It's been used for public storage rental units. The rest of the place has all kind of businesses on the main ground floor. It needs to be repaired and up to code. None of this is a surprise that this was going to happen. Again, a lot of irrational conspiracy theories and false outrage (Fact: It's an old building that is falling apart and is on a flood plain... no conspiracy there, just cause and effect)

    Three: This morning, someone planted a bomb at a bank where the drive through ATM is and blew it up. So, FBI, ATF, and all manner of law enforcement is on the scene.

    This is all in a two mile radius.

    Wow! Will have to look at the paper today and see if there's a story. We only get online on Mondays.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Well, it's a full moon, so there is that.

    There is. I used to work in an emergency room. We saw the weirdest stuff during full moons....
