My Thursday Morning Surfing

Here are some things that I found interesting this morning:

Samoa will have no Friday this week.  So, in a small sense, tomorrow will never come in Samoa, but that is true for today only.

Claiming “economic hardship,” Rick and Anita Perry sought, and got, their daughter a driver’s license at age 15. Who could live on $115K with kids in hogh school?

The lucky Americans who have jobs are working more hours for less money, which is keeping American productivity up but worker morale low, and over the last few months we’ve gotten a clearer picture of what that means for workers.

Here’s to you, Mario ans Sonic….

iPhone users download 5 million free apps a day – does this mean they have less time to text?

And finally –

a new calendar that will help you keep the Sabbath (part of their justification), and means your birthday will always be on a Tuesday (or Thursday, or… well, you get the idea)

  1. “Claiming “economic hardship,” Rick and Anita Perry sought, and got, their daughter a driver’s license at age 15. Who could live on $115K with kids in hogh school?”

    It depends on what kind of car they’ve bought for her. And how much her insurance is. If they buy her a fancy enough car it could be a severe set back.

    But then, the economic hardship might be something other than money (and more reflecting the seeming original intent of the law), i.e., that the economic activities of the parents are such that it is of great help to have the child legal to drive.

  2. Yea, I don’t think the intent of the law in Texas is to say the parents have an economic hardship. It is about their total life situation and ability to drive their daughter. I figure Gov. Goodhair has a good bit of activity that keeps him from being able to drive his daughter to school. No idea what Anita does, but if her job keeps her from being able to do so as well, then there is a ‘hardship.’ there.
