I knew there was a Men's Wearhouse off of Pipeline Road near Northeast Mall but I couldn't find it last Sunday. So, for the first time ever, I used Google via text messaging by typing "Men's Wearhouse 76137" and sending it to "46645" (GOOGL). (It was the only zip code I could quickly come up with) Within seconds, the address and phone number of the store came back.

If you're bored, watch Tyra Banks act like she is nuts on America's Next Top Model. (Youtube clip.) Her acting is worse than her talk show.

The following was pulled from the Comments (under the Elmo toy) and reposted her for your assessment: The WCM reports that the Wise County Regional Hospital claims a $300 million annual economic impact on Wise County. Are they crazy? Based on a population of about 50,000 people, that's $6,000 better off every man, woman, child, illegal, and inmate should be each year. Or about $20,000 to $25,000 for every single family, based on average family size. In other words, the hospital is claiming it accounts for more than half of all income in the county. That's strange, thought hospitals were things that local people paid into, and not things that cut checks for $20,000 each year to every family in the county. Economic impact studies are notorious for overmultiplying, overestimating, and counting every dollar even if the dollars come from the local area.

South Dakota is passing (or has passed) a bill outlawing abortion (which would become valid if Roe v. Wade was overturned.) Supporting senator Bill Napoli, a good strong clean conservative, explains (1) when an exception should be made (hint: if the girl is religious and a virgin it helps - and "brutally" raped helps even more) and (2) how out of wedlock births should be handled.

I watched the end of the OU game last weekend and, boy, did the Sooners ever get screwed on the onside's kick. It was obvious the ball didn't go ten yards before Oregon touched it, but I had no idea that OU had actually recovered the ball. If you're interested in this sort of thing, you have to see this youtube clip where the play has been broken down more than the Zapruder film. (And, by the way, the officiating crew has been suspended for this week's game).

As I jogged outside tonight, it occurred to me that it was almost three years to the day that I complete tore my Achilles tendon. (I was playing basketball with my fifth ex-wife who had made the outrageous claim that she still was her high school's all time leading basketball scorer - a claim that made more sense once I realized she was about 20 years old). Anyway, two days later I went under the knife for the first time in my life. Three
Two months later I was back on the treadmill. And now I don't have any remnants of the injury. Shout out to Dr. John Riberio of Decatur for some fine work.

I'm a self confessed nerd. I know databases. I design databases. I know what a relational table is and can write SQL queries. (Ok, I've proved my point.) So I wasn't scared to buy the above product for $40 which, in theory, would allow me to transfer my Access database tables at work to my handheld device and work with the data on the go. (Always nice to know who is in the hoosegow at the drop of a hat.) Over the last 24 hours I've spent the majority of time jacking with it, and only in the last hour got the dang to work. I can't imagine the number of people that threw up their hands trying to work with the thing.
