In a game that's not as close as that score would indicate.

Hi folks, While I've taken a look here maybe once a month, I haven't posted because I really didn't have anything to say. Thinking of closing down this blog around the beginning of March as it is time to renew. Still going to try and do the weekly open thread and maybe the occasional post (working title for the next one is 'get your mashup culture off my yard!'). If there are any good reasons to keep this open, I'd love to hear them, toss them in the comments below.

Bridges?

Jan 09, 2014 by Ugh | 3 Comments
We don't need no stinking bridges! Gov. Christie certainly seems to have screwed the pooch. There's keeping people in line, party discipline, and political payback, and then there's just being a reckless asshole because you're a dick, like being one, and don't care who gets hurt in the process. Garlic in the soul.

Things are getting dusty around here...

Except for that 60 comment thread below. Red Sox won the World Series! Yay! What else is going on? This seems rather unsporting of wireless carriers. I'm sure there is a reason why this actually is "good for consumers" but I can't come up with one. Sort of like it would be "bad for consumers" if you were allowed to keep your phone number upon switching wireless carriers. Has the whole NSA thing blown over yet? Anyone in jail? No? Gotta be something interesting around here somewhere.

Maybe Obama should shutter the FAA and get this thing over with in about an hour.

Repeal the 2nd Amendment?

A post for the mothership? Or have we tread that ground enough recently? Probably wouldn't be that much fun to discuss. Maybe a thread on why "guns are different"?

End of Summer sounds

I think that I hear crickets or maybe tree frogagep webs outsweide as a constant backgound noise.

Is that wocka,wocka noise coming from the trees katydids(at night) or cicadas? It doesn't sound like that awful racket that cicadas sometimes make.I didn't get to go up north to see the reduntsin, mi web page maples that I suspect are out in the Upper Peninsula.I'll have to settle for looking at the little mountain,michigan  <a href=http://www.summitpost.org/little-mountain/ mountain,michigan web page. /a

Football!

Aug 29, 2013 by Ugh | 6 Comments
Tomorrow marks the opening of the college football season and thus the end of the long, awful purgatory where baseball is the only team sport of any mention happening in the U.S. This occurs every year from the end of the NBA/NHL playoffs (whichever happens to last longer) until now - two months of baseball baseball baseball. Drives me nuts. And only 8 days until the NFL starts. Hooray!
