Crony capitalism is a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials. It's quite simple really.

Ken, before you start cutting those emblems off, see if they are reflective.

If that matters to you.

I'm thinking the "Technics" are printed. Maybe a rattle can of satin black paint?

Not even Close.

This is merely the REGULATIONS (that were yet to be written when it was "Deemed to Pass" Congress, BTW) telling you what you must fill-out in order to be Judged to Live or Die. Paper only breeds more of itself, and goddam but is it a prolific humping barstid.....

The few logos there are don't appear to be removable short of wrecking the jacket. But its turned out to be very good in warm weather. It was in the high 80s today and it was quite comfy. Even stopped I could feel the breeze. I give it "2-Fans Up."

Hollywood? The armpit of South Florida...I avoid it like the plague. Except the Hard Rock on occasion.

Let me know if you want to see the new bike. I'm leaving work early to register the kid for High School (they grow up so quick...sob!). Should be free after 6.
