news and notes

Two things I find interesting and both of which I heard whilst listening to NPR in the past two days:

1. Pizza Patrón (alias: Best Pizza in all the Land), a local pizza chain is accepting pesos until the end of February on a trial basis. When I was living in Rodeo Town (think popular barbecue sauce), we used to go there all the time, and my mom was friends with one of the owners. She drove a Miata.
Pizza Patrón!

2. For the first time in a decade, a bill is being proposed to raise minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.25 an hour. Geez-o-Peets! But is it enough? There's been talk of indexing minimum wage to move with inflation. Will they do it?
Minimal Wage.....oops?

That reminds me of when I worked at blockbuster a mere 7.5 years ago, and I thought that starting out at $5.85 was a step in the right direction. What speaks of my "power" in the company more than costing $0.70 more an hour than the average Video Joe? Not much........not much.
