Electricity is a beautiful thing

I am fine and have nothing to complain about.

I do strongly urge all persons who make a habit of protesting electric plants to try going without it for a few days. It can be done by the average bear, but it's pretty annoying. It's a little rough on people with respirators and the like.

Traffic was the most fun. No traffic lights, no street lights, just a bunch of stressed out people whose nerves were jangling with cabin fever. But no gasoline either, hell with it, I just stayed home.

George Steinbrenner and the New York Yankees are cordially invited to go to and stay put. The Tampa Bay Devil Rays postponed the double header with the Yankees, because dammit we're having a hurricane down here and we are going to stay with our families and we can't get a plane anyway. And Steinbrenner tries to say the Devil Rays are forfeiting the game? No, sir. In the words of some radio sportscaster: "And Steinbrenner has a home in south Tampa. Maybe he did leave his family there to face it out alone. If he did, he's not a man."

Any team that beats the Yankees is okay by me. Thank you, Cleveland Indians.

You didn't see that kind of pettiness over the Cubs/Marlins game. Thank you, Chicago Cubs.
