I started a blog called Three Weeks in Another Town. It was about spending three weeks where I normally live but this time sans wife who was half way around the world, which made everything different.

I'd get a salary, not an hourly wage, and Uncle Sam wouldn't use of penny of it to bail out loser corporations.

There was a downside. I'd be issued body armor and taught to be proficient with a Glock 9 mm.
