Two things that were high on my list of things to acquire during a nice respite from the demands of work.
In other news, Ghost Hunters at the Central Terminal managed to recreate the excitement of Geraldo Rivera at Al Capone’s vault.
The Comedy Central sponsored Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear was an amiable mess, but Jon Stewart’s speech at the end made it worth it. I’m no acolyte, but it was a nice dose of common sense, an antidote from times when the sides have no plan other than to take down each other. Take a look
As I sit here in my costume of good looking, middle aged guy who enjoys a good beer, the Bills lost again, but not after a round of time out shenanigans that stole a 53 yard field goal away from Ryan Lindell.
