Inspiration. When you think life is basically stinky, and people are basically stupid, and basically nobody seems to be giving you a break, watch this video. Basically incredible.

Hubris. Two-word definition: Bill Belichick.

Yawn. Ellen DeGeneres is engaged. Again.

Nuts. Indians lose to the Reds. Sheesh. (Enjoy it while it lasts, D – the Tribe shall rise again, um, someday.)

Quote of the Day. “Student misbehavior isn’t a school problem, it’s a community problem. Kids don’t come to school and suddenly act differently.” –Mansfield City Schools Superintendent Lloyd Martin. (Rock on. Good luck convincing some parents of that fact.)

Horrifying. Makes one wonder what lesson God is trying to teach us.

Tragic. What would possess a 49-year-old woman to pose as a 16-year-old boy on MySpace, and ultimately cause a 13-year-old girl to commit suicide?

Your opinions on any of the above? Priceless. Feel free to post. Discussion is good.

Fink out.

I’m really hesitant to say anything, but since I don’t believe in curses or jinxes, I’ll simply report (not brag) that the Chicago Cubs are 7-1 on their current homestand, and that they are in first place in their division. Yesterday they topped the 1 million mark in attendance for THIS season–the earliest ever in their history to do that. But, history has taught me to be cautious. Time will tell. I think an Indian vs. Cubs World Series would be fantastic, so “Go, Tribe, Go.”
