    Making That Sticker Not-So-Permanent

    So, I am one of the lucky few who got my City of Dallas driver ID and car registration sticker a couple of months back...in the mail, and at no apparent charge. I didn't have to go through a vehicle inspection (though apparently I will once it's up for renewal), and Uber never got around to...

    Good Stuff Happens

    I wasn't really that into driving tonight, but it had been a very slow day in my usual North Dallas haunts, and I went back online after dinner. Inevitably, I ended up in uptown. Though I usually avoid picking up passengers there on weekend nights, I stayed online, and quickly got a ping. I...
