The Pete Carroll book tour starts July 13th in Manhattan (of all places). Not sure how many New Yorkers care about a former USC coach now readying himself for a mediocre NFL career.

The U.S. Chamber: A Record of Obstruction on Climate Action by ...
In 1883, New York faced an environmental crisis. Water levels were falling in the state’s rivers and canals, impeding travel and shipping.

I love the pacific northwest and would liek to move out there, preferrably around Seattle.
