Always ethereal, always eclectic, I write as the mood strikes, when there intrigue reveals itself. Usually that means something controversial or adventure of some sort.

I've tried really hard to be unprovocative, but have as yet been unsuccessful.

Catastrophic Collapse

This past Thursday evening a 210' crane inexplicably collapsed in the middle of the night in Bellevue, across the lake from Seattle. In the process it killed one person and seriously injured three, destroying 25 condos enough to condemn them and damaging a number of other buildings, to the tune of tens of millions of dollars. The crane was being operated at the time- but the operator survived. The man killed was in his apartment at 730 when the crane crashed into it.
I called in this morning to report availability to my four temp agencies, which so far has been an exercise in futility. I just learned that one of those agencies, Apple One, was under the crane, and that office is now being housed in Seattle. No one was injured from Apple One. But I was in that office just a couple weeks prior for application and testing.
