So I read this yesterday. Joel makes some great points. Some are spot on. Some are way off. But I will have to admit, one of the best blog posts from a SD blogger I have read in a long time about the 2018 race.
I heard that UBER driver service soon will be in Sioux Falls, I say GREAT!
UBER has had criticism because it can’t be regulated like regular cab companies. Once again I say GREAT!
Regulations equal higher rates, especially in the taxi industry.
UBER drivers are regulated though by UBER, they do vehicle inspections and background checks on their drivers. The way they get around taxi regulations is that you don’t pay or tip the driver, you pay UBER through a phone app.
I used UBER about 4 times this past weekend in Minneapolis. Not only was there a fast response time, the vehicles were clean (and so were the drivers) and in most cases the cab ride was about 25% of the cost of a regular cab.
I think I am going to start a FB group that is upset about students being upset and another about being upset about students who should be upset but are not, which leads into my third page about trying to get the ones that are not upset, to be upset about something, but they are probably busy chasing tail, smoking grass and not playing their saxophone while cheerleading at a football game that turned into soccer practice that reviewed their physics AP courses. I just hope none of them starve over summer, and if they do get hungry remember to dig through the dumpsters at Wild Water West, because there will be lots of leftover chicken fingers and onion rings from the spoiled kids who get to tan for 3 extra weeks.
I was fortunate to meet Thelma in 1993, a passionate woman, a beautiful soul. She thought me a lot about women’s rights. At the ripe age of 21, I was brought into the world of NARAL and NOW. I will always remember her enormous sense of humor, and kind heart. South Dakota will miss this wonderful fighter and humanitarian.
Visitation will begin at 12 pm with the family present from 5 to 7 pm on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, at Miller Funeral Home, 13th & Main. A funeral service will be held at 10:00 am on Thursday, February 26, 2015, at Grace Lutheran Church with burial at Hills of Rest Memorial Park.
It’s that time of the year, hosting fees are due, and if you would like to contribute, feel free to give to my PayPal account (you can also click on it in the Right sidebar). No donation is to small (or large).
As you know I volunteer my time to this site and sell very little advertising, I guess that is the downfall of being an independent in South Dakota. Maybe I need to start posting more press releases by Noem and Thune 🙂
