Of Taxes Taxis and Taxonomies

A commenter to my previous post "Doug Law" asked if I paid taxes. Of course! I also have proof of insurance and registration, and valid license. But since I usually always ride bicycle, the license plate renewal 'scaped my notice. It's taken care of now. ... It would be cheaper to just sell the car, and take a taxi around town.

Not with Moonlight cabbie Rob Taylor though. It's reported in the Daily Egyptian, that he's quitting the business at the end of the semester, since fares have already been down, even before new taxi service came to town. I wonder who owns it. Someone with a business degree.

Taxonomies. Using TweetDeck for Twitter allows users to group the folks they're "following" into user-created categories. My categories are Folks and Friends ... News .... Geeky ... Marketing ... Entertainment.

If you aren't on Twitter yet, you should be! If you follow my updates, you'll be the first to know about tomorrow's meeting w/ Mayor Cole about this year's Bike 2 Work Day, or my YouTube video about it. ... Or the name of the owner of Ace Taxi. And more good info.

Doug Law

Recently, I got stopped while driving to Schnucks, because my license plate registration was expired. On top of that, my proof of insurance was not to be found (since it was laying on the desk in my room, a block away). And, uh, my seat belt wasn't fastened. ...

Only heard (of) Will Elliott Whitmore on BLIP 36hrs b4 this p... on TwitPicMaybe because I'd just uploaded a video to YouTube of Will Whitmore singing "Johnny Law" ("the littlest man you ever saw") I expected "the book" to be thrown at me. Not the one I'm currently reading, but a hefty ticket.

Turned out, Officer Doug was a stand-up guy, and let me off with a warning, plus a ticket to provide proof of insurance at the County Courthouse in a few weeks.

What's so funny?

Choose one: ... Clerks at Old National Bank (Schnuck's branch) are laughing at:

a) my favorite Charity,
b) the balance of my bank account, or
c) Zathos45 little tweets. ;-)
