And why we should probably all be pitching a bitch, even though we know it really won't matter all that much in the long run.

I know people who have been fired because their company cell phone gave their location away (they were not where they were supposed to have been). We all know Big Brother's watching. In a way it makes us feel safer, but we also know it's jeopardizing our freedom. And after Boston, we know it's not really making us any safer, because the government is such a bunch of incompetent bozos. Those who will sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither. That's exactly what we're getting here.

You should have gone up to the Signature Room in the Hancock Center. It's one floor beneath the observation deck. Yo can get a drink and sit for less than a ticket to stand on the observation deck (with no beverage). Great view of the City and the Lake.

Hattie's right. The fashion models are much prettier than the cheesy men's magazine floozies. Classy magazines, but he's probably not going to really be reading it. Vanity Fair, however, is a different matter. It actually has good literary content and high fashion. Tell him to move to VF......

I'm not sure Military planes have traditional black boxes and even if they do (and they probably have really black, black, boxes), they're not likely to share the info withthe public; that's just not the military way...

If the fix was in all the playoff series would have gone the distance too. They didn't. But what a great story. 10 1/2 back in August. Just got the Wildcard by a hair. Then dismantled the Phillies, The Brewers, and the Rangers in succession. But Thursday night it could have gone either way and I was afraid they were done. What a comeback team. Woo Hoo St. Louis!

It was about time for Bec's. The Cardinals game was a nail biter from when I first tuned in in the 5th inning. Molina's throw to get the base runner stealing second was epic... Springfield has taken the Most Dangerous title away from St. Louis.....Still doesn't feel that dangerous in either place.... The weather is pure heaven. Enjoy it! It won't last long....
