Re: Teachers: Make It Thank You, Not "Why

Incentives are the issue. Pay administrators no more than teachers and determine a low fixed ratio of administrators/staff to teachers. Or, heck, let the teachers administer themselves for the most part.

Re: Asset Forfetiure Laws: End Them

We have Ronald Reagan to thank for asset forfeiture laws during his war on drugs, which was more like a war on civil liberties and the middle class.

Re: Living below your means

Traveling is like reading; time is spent for a rich experience. Sometimes the experience pays dividends for a lifetime. Travel and reading are two of the best uses of one's time.

Re: Basement/crawlspace moisture

Wow, what a good story, Chili. I'll relay this info to my friend.

I would think just venting the area and maybe putting plastic or tyvek on the bottom of the floor joists, under the insulation, would work. But, then, I have no experience [more]

Re: Basement/crawlspace moisture

Thanks. Should they tape the edges of the plastic sheeting? Would ventilation be necessary? Would it be better to attach the plastic sheeting to the floor joists?

Basement/crawlspace moisture

Hey, all,
A friend described a moisture problem with the bare ground under his house; smelling musty, maybe coming into the house through the floor boards. The house rests on a cinder block foundation, with maybe 5-7 feet down to the bare dirt. [more]

Re: OT: Gravity waves detected

That's something really big going bump in the night. It's exciting and humbling, puzzling and promising.
