Good work, fellas, take a break

Another tree fell down on our street, and from the time I woke up at 6:30 AM until the time I left for the office at 8:15 AM, an entire crew (probably 6-8 guys) of city workers stood around staring at it like it was a particularly difficult math problem. Occasionally one of them would look up from the tree to the stump, as if to confirm that it had actually fallen down, and not burrowed up from the center of the earth.

Now I'm off to interview J.D. Cronise.

Maybe they fixated on the stump with an eye toward possible reattachment?

Maybe. Maybe they were just waiting for donuts to arrive.

I didn't know who this was, so I looked it up online. His Wikipedia article contains the most redundant sentence ever to appear in an article on metal:

His songs often focus on elements of Norse Mythology.

Really? Do they feature guitars, perhaps?

Psssh. Someone's got a pretty limited view of metal.

You didn't watch the entire time, didya? Maybe one of them actually DID something while you weren't looking?!

It is entirely possible that they did something, but it did not involve moving the tree.

Like good Americans, they were letting free-market capitalism take charge. If that tree truly needed to be cleared, market forces would intervene to do so efficiently and in a timely manner. Why do you continue to be an America-hating communist, Leonard?
