Being Creative with Craigslist Ads


Callers have gotten into the spirit of the ad.  The first lady who called said she had a "galactic" interest in the items. 

My PhD son-in-law devised the ad after the two of us hauled it from upstairs down to our garage.  My original intention was to put it in the basement then call 1-800-GOTJUNK later when we had other stuff to get rid of.  He suggested Craigslist.  Giving it away would guarantee it would get a new home fast, and he had fun composing the ad.

The ad went up around 11:30 a.m. on a Saturday.  By 1:30 the desk was loaded into an F150 and on its way to its new home 20 miles away.

Climate Change Sanity

Some sober thoughts on this political thing called climate change:

Even if humans are bringing about their own demise with uncontrolled pollution, getting governments involved will make it worse.  

The answer is the restoration and enforcement of property rights.
