Re: Other Sports

Sad playoff hockey year in the NY metro area. While not an extreme fan of any of the teams, it was always great to be inundated with multiple playoff series on the local sports channels, plus the west coast games if you felt like staying up late.

Re: Politics

I worry that the focus now is on drawing a line in the sand in front of the doors to our schools. Sure, coming up with ways to improve school security is important. But, 1) if you draw the line, there will still be those crazy/stupid enough to try and cross that line, and there will be casualties; 2...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Changing perception can be an adequate (although incomplete) deterrent. If laws are changed, say, to restrict secondary sales of arms, it may keep some from bothering to obtain a weapon they thought makes them look cool. TSA checks at the airport are a joke. But does it deter anyone? Probably some o...

No gaming the system, Grower: you can't start making proxy predictions when there's already a line out on your number of predictions. Vegas will come find you.

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

We have a couple Mazdas and I find the Bluetooth (no navigation installed) a bit klunky. I think there is a broad spectrum across auto companies when it comes to making a good Bluetooth interface in the vehicle. For example mine's OK for making calls but I had to make a phonebook in the car, it won'...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

I've often said my dream second job would be to get deputized to issue violations to Emmert-heads that park the fire lane at the donut shop, handicap spaces, dual spaces, double park, etc. Throw in the non-hands-free cellphone idiots and I could really make the town a few bucks.
