- If you were inside yesterday, the weather outside was like a magnet.
- I've begun reading Tears In The Darkness: The Story of the Bataan Death March and Its Aftermath. There's so much I didn't know about it. Heck, I knew nothing about it.
- Experienced the contrast (while listening to the book while jogging) of seeing a little girl pick a flower in the park while hearing about a 22 year old ranch hand sign up for the Army in 1940.
- And I watched the first episode of The Pacific mini-series on HBO. I can't tell you how underwhelmed I was by that.
- The mini-series, produced by Tom Hanks, is receiving criticism because it asserts that a lot of Japanese hatred during World War II was racially motivated. Criticism? Even I remember those Bugs Bunny cartoons.
- Next week is the 10 year anniversary of the Fort Worth tornado. Time does fly.
- Yeah, the health care congressional maneuvering is ridiculous.
- Texas lost in the first round last night in overtime and I slept right through it. Never has a team fallen so far so fast.
- In the Update, there's a story about Decatur's EDC giving away $200,000 to a private business. For the life of me, I don't understand EDCs.
- "Free throw" is actually a weird word for an uncontested basketball shot from a fixed distance. Edit: "Free" I understand. It's the "throw" that's a little unusual.
- Newark is considering a daytime curfew for minors in order to "discourage burglaries and truancy." That should solve the problem. "Jim Bob, we can't break into that house because if we get caught outside we'll be subject to a $500 fine!"
- WBAP's Hal Jay admitted this morning that this is his first year to fill out an NCAA bracket. How is that possible. I know girls that can't spell "NCAA" that always enter the office pool.
- Don't listen to local talk radio unless you want to hear about Ron Washington and drug use. Complete overkill.
- More text messages of Tiger Woods were released yesterday. Wow. The man sure did like getting his freak on.
