    There's apparently no truth to the silly rumor that the AMC is going to have it dropped on the top of Lafayette and charge $147.50 admission.

    Looks like it's going to be a flat $150.

    Which reminds me that there is an always-flowing stream after you've pretty much bottomed out coming down from Garfield and have been walking flat for awhile.

    Found Monday July 15, 2019. At least that's what I think it is. I thought it might be some important piece of medical gear so I wrapped it up and carried it home. But a search shows it's probably...
