A long, sordid tale with a happy ending

Seriously, fuck UPS.   I got a turntable when I was in DC.  It’s the NuMark TT USB, so that I can rip my vinyl to iTunes.  Since I had to fly home, I shipped to myself.  I put my office number at work on it AND MY PHONE NUMBER. For some reason UPS brought […]

I’m not convinced. I mean, not really.

it’s like they have a federal committee standing by to make the least convincing explanation possible. The Federal Aviation Administration acknowledged that a United supervisor had called the control tower at O’Hare, asking if anyone had spotted a spinning disc-shaped object. But the controllers didn’t see anything, and a preliminary check of radar found nothing […]
