BoyGeeding had his first blastball practice yesterday, which is a simplified version of t-ball. Or if you think the world is evolving towards idiocracy, the future of baseball. Actually, I read somewhere a scene that didn’t make it into the movie Idiocracy was of one of baseball being so simplified it only had one base.
There’s absolutely no way I could ever coach a team of kids that young. I can deal with my kids, but I can’t deal with other people’s kids.
On an internal government website, I had to select a security question and provide an answer. One question was, “Where were you when you first heard about 9/11?”
That same government website asked for my Selective Service registration number. Uh, I have no idea, but I did tweet my grandfather’s the other day which he signed in 1917, the year the department was created.

Last month I mentioned I bought some of Cumulus Media stock (owner of The TICKET) since it was hovering around a quarter, just for the heck of it. Yesterday it closed at $0.568. But there is no retirement for me as I didn’t buy many shares.
Map – Where ‘Anglos’ are the Minority – The most-recent population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau show that non-Hispanic whites (or “Anglos,” as my Texas friends call them) are the minority in more than 364 counties. There are 151 that don’t have a single racial or ethnic group in the majority, making them the country’s most-diverse places.
Frank Sinatra Jr died yesterday, which made me think of his father who was buried with a roll of dimes in his pocket – The kidnappers demanded that all communication be conducted by payphone. During these conversations, Frank Sr. became concerned he would not have enough change. This prompted Frank Sr. to carry a roll of dimes (10 cent coins) with him at all times for the rest of his life; he was even buried with 10 dimes in his pocket.
