    "It delivers." I see what you did there…

    Thanks to Google image search, I've discovered what's in today's picture. Is there a significance to posting it, or did it just strike your fancy?

    Personally, I'd drop ESPN. But my son is so sports-crazy, that I don't think I could get away with that. I can't blame him – like you, I watched a ton of ESPN in my 20s. I can only imagine how much I would have watched at his age.

    On a somewhat related note, the rise of people cutting cable is creating a looming problem for Disney as a company. Since it owns ESPN, it's trying desperately to figure out what to do in order to retain viewers, as ESPN is a huge profit source for the company. Cable networks make up about 45% of Disney's total revenue, and ESPN represents 75% of that segment. It will be interesting to see what they do.

    – I've got a couple of cue cats somewhere deep in my closet along with all the other obsolete tech stuff that I refuse to throw away.

    – Why does KERA use median for income and average for credit card balance and credit score? And is the national average the average or the average of the medians?

    Ah, cuecat. Those were the days. I kept a few for years thinking that there would be some use/hack for a barcode reader, then technology overtook us and everyone carries a nice wireless barcode reader in their pockets.

    The only person that made out in that deal was Philyaw, now calling himself J Hutton Pulitzer, who still seems absolutely crazy.
