Ancestry: An Essay on Remembering

I remember my grandparents well. It seems like only yesterday I was sitting on their porch, watching the reflection of the setting sun in the nearby lake, crimson, sometimes like fire.

Bad Business Ideas: Visit Florida

Visit Florida. An organization under fire. Some in Tallahassee want to do away with it. Others, like Governor Rick Scott want to keep it.

Bad Business Ideas: Uber

Uber needs one thing. No, not new leadership. No, not an overhaul of its toxic corporate culture. Certainly not an end to software that helps drivers avoid government investigators. They need a secret menu! It’ll distract from all the issues (including lawsuits from Alphabet) and shows that they care. Simply type in the following codes,…
