Calling your attention to a couple of nice posts

TJ Sullivan was standing in line at a warehouse store when he called out a couple of his fellow shoppers for strategically staking out spots in two lines, waiting to see which moved faster. OK, so they took umbrage at TJ's umbrage, but things really got complicated when another shopper chirped in with a racial comment. TJ plays out the episode at Native Intelligence in a post he calls This American Line.

In A center to one family's universe, Bob Timmermann tells us about his grandmother, a subject he's blogged about elsewhere: "The story of her life always draws me back in. It is very much a story of America as well as a story of Los Angeles, her adopted home."
