478.4 skinny screed (both) Ive been noticing a trend in Eugene, but I wonder if its happening everywhere as the economy gets more competitive, lifestyles become more accelerated, and respite is just plain harder to find.

My friend Patrick has come up with a fantastic idea to keep the American economy humming: incompetence insurance.

KUGN – Sanipac
