“Long range” meaning, apparently, next week

September 4th, 2003 § Two comments

Emeryville is hiring a city planner, and the beginning of the job listing tells you everything you need to know about Emeryville’s planning process: “The City of Emeryville is seeking to fill a journey level position to perform professional planning and building work in support of the Planning/Building Department. The successful candidate will function independently performing routine to difficult assignments in current and long range planning. The principle [sic] duties of the current opening involve the processing of development applications.”

    pinchy dot org: the drinking game
    Christie’s suggestion that Jeff post drink recipes as a sort of penance for making us read passages on urban planning got me thinking, and when he went two weeks without posting anything at all, I knew something had to be done. So, following in the grand tradition of the SF Bay-Guardian’s Jon Carroll drinking game and the annual State of the Union drinking game, here’s what I’ve come up with so far (with the help of Brian, my devoted partner in crime, of course). I hope other devoted readers of pinchy.org will add their own suggestions. (I wanted to include ’Posts current music anyone’s ever heard of,‚ but then I realized I might be one with weird tastes, so someone else will have to decide if that’s appropriate.)
