Carnegie Mellon is the only university in the U.S. that offers a Bachelors degree in bagpiping.
June 23: Today Tommy and Rachie Pie are heading out on a road trip to Pittsburgh and lands beyond. For those of you who don't know much about Pittsburgh, here's some resource information. 1) Once Tommy was in a restaurant and his friend ordered chopped steak "Pittsburgh medium," and Tommy didn't know what that was. 2) One summer when he was a kid, Tommy's father (Rachie's grandfather) worked in a steel mill in Pittsburgh.
Recently T. and R.P. were driving someplace and Tommy's car needed gas so they pulled into what happened to be a brand-new (ALERT! ALERT! Irrelevant fact!) gas station. After filling the tank Tommy told Rachie that that was the most he had ever paid for gas in his entire life.
As we've mentioned previously the price of gas is a HUGE problem. Fortunately, we're doing something about it.
The New York Times Recognizes The Groove
In his June 27 New York Times Op-Ed column, columnist David Brooks writes:
"Over the past five years, a group of young and unpredictable rightward-leaning writers has emerged on the scene... these writers did not rise through the official channels of the conservative or libertarian establishments. By and large, they didn't do the internships or take part in the young leader programs that were designed to replenish 'the movement.' Instead, they found their voices while blogging..."
Thank you, David Brooks! And similarly we at The Groove commend the fine journalistic work that you and your colleagues do at the New York Times.
July 3: Today Andy's car passed the vehicle emissions test. Praise be to God!
