Friday Five

March 2, 2007 at 1:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I have pizza on my mind this morning—why? I have no idea—so today’s Friday Five is five pizza joints I’ve never eaten at, but I want to try:

  1. Cici’s Pizza. The best compliment I’ve heard is that it’s cheap. I wish “it’s good” came up a little more often, but it sounds like I should at least give it a shot.
  2. Piezano’s. I just never think of this place, all tucked away in an unremarkable location on South Street.
  3. Ramo’s Pizza (with Busters BBQ). Where else can you get pizza and brisket under the same roof? I have had Busters, but I’ve missed out on Ramo’s so far.
  4. Nero’s Pizza. I don’t hear much about this place, but I know it has been around for years. Their Philly Steak pizza sounds interesting.
  5. The Isles Pub & Pizza. I’ve heard plenty of positive feedback on The Isles, but I just don’t get to Havelock very often. Maybe I’ll pick up a pie on my way home from Abbott Sports Complex sometime this spring.

Nantkes in the News

First she was (allegedly) a drunk driver, and now she’s a procrastinator. This just hasn’t been a good month for Sen. Danielle Nantkes.

A New Option From Lincoln’s Airport

March 2, 2007 at 1:20pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Don’t let it be said that Lincoln’s airport doesn’t offer enough destination options. Now you can fly to Scottsbluff for the low price of $550 round trip. Don’t delay, the planes only carry six passengers. Book your flight today!

Sarcasm aside, it is always nice to see more transportation options. I just don’t see this one as being especially viable. I would be pleased to be proven wrong.

School’s Out

March 1, 2007 at 1:20pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Kids all across the city bounced out of bed with enthusiasm this morning as they found out that school is canceled today. I haven’t been out of the house yet, but from what I can tell it was a good decision. There was a time I would have been surprised that UNL closed, but over the past couple years—since the October 1997 snow storm, really—it hasn’t taken nearly as much to cancel classes as it used to.

I can’t decide if I’m surprised that state basketball is sticking to its schedule. I suppose all the teams that have to drive any great distance are probably already in town. I wonder what happens if a team isn’t able to travel—or flat out refuses to travel?

[Edited to add: Now I see that most roads in and out of Lincoln have been closed. I’m really surprised the NSAA hasn’t revised its position.]

I’m going to be working on the computer all day today. What are you up to today?
