You’ve all heard this news already. There’s not much I can add to what so many others have already said, lifelong Beatles fan that I am. All I can really say is, Rest In Peace, George. You did make a difference in the world.Today I will listen to my favorite “lost” Harrison single, “What is…
There’s just something neat about this, even if I can’t read it very well: news headlines in Latin. “Papa Legatos Religionum Convocat” (that one just seems right in Latin), “Osama Bin Laden Fugitivus.” It’s kind of neat that some people still use Latin on a regular basis.

Early Sunday morning we drove out past North Bend to get a good look at the Leonid meteor shower. It was stunning — just an amazing sight. We didn’t get any photos, but some people did. Wow.

“In the face of illness, baseball chooses to blow noses by putting gun barrels up nostrils.” That’s a rather strong way to put it, but Art Thiel is right when he says Minnesota and Montreal did not fail baseball. Baseball failed them. And the rest of us. The greatest game there is, and yet the…
Ogden Nash will be featured on a US postage stamp! I think that’s kind of neat.
The Minnesota Twins had a good season this year, but it could be their last. What a travesty. Wouldn’t Tampa Bay be a far better candidate for contraction?
