News roundup:
This article is a little shocking. Essentially, 1.3% of the males in the U.S. have been to prison. Think about it – you indirectly encounter hundreds of people each day of your life – for every 75 people you cross paths with, 1 has spent time in jail. Weird.
There is SO MUCH wrong with [...]

One thing I’ve neglected to mention so far this year is which video baseball game I decided to go with for my PC. In case you’re new to the blog, each season I buy a baseball game and play out a season. A whole season. A couple of seasons ago, I went ballistic and played [...]

OK, so let’s try to understand corporate America. AT&T was in the wireless business at one point. I can personally attest to the utter atrociousness of their service.

Hi. I’m in San Francisco now after spending the weekend in Newport. While in Newport, I found, perhaps, the best restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. The decor put it over the top. Anyway, more later…..busy times. Maybe I’ll employ my friend Dave to post a couple of times as I’ll be hoppin’ around the state. [...]
