Why I park as far as possible from the store in my supermarket lot


In no particular order:

1) More exercise 

2) Easier to find my car

3) Less chance of getting dinged by the door of an adjacent car

4) Much easier to find a spot where I can head in such that I can head out without backing up

5) Nobody bothers me if I sit in my car and do this and that — phone, email, notes to self, etc. — before and after shopping

6) Easier exit

I'm sure there are more good reasons.

Perhaps readers will post them as comments.

The Dash Gets Its Moment


From the Wall Street Journal:


"Conceptual photographer David Matterhorn's 2011 show,


installed in a rare-book shop,


focused on the 'dash' symbol used between birth and death years on tombstones."


"He spent four years zooming in on the dashes of ordinary people as well as celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Oscar Wilde."


From the top down:


Bruce Lee, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, Jam Master Jay, Malcolm X, Jackson Pollock, Marilyn Monroe, Harry Houdini.
