Yes. In a medium sized pot, put about 1/3 cup sugar and then the burner on medium. When the edges start to brown SLOWLY add 1/3 cup of water. It might be best to have a lid handy as the mixture will start to splatter. You'll have a big hunk of seized sugar in the middle. Keep the heat up and stir lightly until that thing is all melted away and bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Let it cool a bit and transfer to the container of your choice.
Edit for exposition: It's just like regular simple syrup, but add the sugar first. You can use more than 1/3 cup of each, but it's a decent size batch for a first effort.
It adds a delightful oaky caramelized sweetness that adds a lot of depth. It's kind of like a golden brown marshmallow, but without all the melty bits.

The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office has presented 30 police-action fatality cases to grand juries since 2008, none of which have resulted in indictments. Those cases are not limited to shootings and include officers from a variety of agencies, not just IMPD, office spokeswoman Peg McLeish said.

"Springfield panhandling ordinance ruled unconstitutional": Illinois Times has this report on an opinion on panel rehearing that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued Friday.
Josh Blackman discusses Friday's ruling in a blog post titled "7th Circuit Invalidates Anti-Panhandling Ordinances After Reed v. Town of Gilbert."

i've been meaning to take a look at indy's ordinances on this topic.
also discussed at the ilb


I saw a sign downtown that seemed to prohibit any panhandling, and I thought it was out of line.
i'm not a big fan of panhandling in general, but there are limits to what the government can do to discourage it.

http://www.indystar.com/story/news/local/johnson-county/2014/10/30/aclu-greenwood-panhandling-rule-violates-constitution/18175951/ I've met Philadelphia Phil, cited in the article. and of course ken Faulk.

gencon went ok this year, not the best, not the worst. photo is a hobo friend of mine i knew from wil wheaton's soapbox some 10 years ago. did see summer glau, and got a food truck samosa. i just confused myself for a minute about which were samosas and which were mimosas. when i was a kid the neighbors across the street had a mimosa tree.
