Curse of the Dolans?

Interesting stream of thought over at the semi-satirical (yet sadly true) God Hates Cleveland Sports

There seems to be something about the Dolan Family and owning sports teams…that well…doesn’t go well together.

Cablevision wasn’t/isn’t the greatest either.

But it’s an interesting paralell nonetheless.

Added degree of difficulty, speaking of Cleveland-rooted owners of sports teams–how about we throw Bruce Ratner into the discussion as well.

Call to boycott?

Aparently there’s a call by some to boycott companies that advertise in the NY Times.

Personally–I’m not big on these types of boycott things, as they usually fail to get the point across.

But for fun–I’m going to take a look at some of the suggested “tergets” for such a boycott.

Let’s see…

Tiffany, Cartier, Chanel. Gucci. Torneau, Saks Fifth

I dunno if I could survive without these places

Coming soon to ESPN Ocho?

They’re televising the National Spelling Bee these days…so one can only wonder how far off this could be:

Real-Time (Live) Computer Programming Competition

“On Wednesday the 24th of May at Loop Bar in Melbourne (Australia) fourteen teams of programmers gathered for the first ESCI LiveCoda real-time programming competition. Possibly the first performance based real-time programming competition. Before a packed night club with live music

A suggestion to the Court

To the Justices of the Supreme Court:

Today’s news reports that you’re going to be taking up a case vis-a-vis “global warming”.

It is my sincere hope that your honors not debate the science of the subject; but rather focus your arguments and analysis to the legal and Constitutional issues present in the case. As Justices your expertise is the Law, not science; and you should not be the ones making decisions which are better left to the scientific community at large.

Living in NYC: Good and Bad

Today’s observation:

Bad thing about living in NYC: Having to schlepp your grocieries home from the store*. Double bad when it’s raining cats and dogs.

Good thing: large amounts of scaffolding being up to help protect you from the rain
