With the modern day of Smartphones, children today will look back on perfectly filtered images of their childhood. Those unflattering pictures will have been weeded out, deleted, and never to be seen again; well, unless you’re prestigious enough to get your…

After agreeing, I received an email letting me know quite kindly, complimentarily and apologetically that they no longer had time on the agenda for my five minutes. Was that really the case?

  • Four veteran umpires to work first World Series following replay success (Big League Stew)

    17 Oct 2014 | 7:10 pm
    Major League Baseball's expanded replay system is still a work-in-progress in some aspects, but by and large should be considered a success in its first season. Many of the kinks that remain, including how it impacts the pace of the game, will be addressed during the offseason. But major changes shouldn't be required after the system served its purpose As it turns out, expanded replay has also given league officials another tool with which to evaluate its current roster of umpires. According to the Associated Press , there were 1,275 reviews overall during the regular season, and 47 percent…

  • And Now...A Message From The Pentagon

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:16 am
    A few days ago the Post-Gazette editorial board published this:Conservative members of Congress may not be ready to acknowledge the reality of climate change, but the Pentagon sees it for what it is — a threat to national security. On Monday, the Pentagon issued a report assessing the immediate dangers of climate change. And here's the report itself.And this is from Secretary Hagel's forward:The responsibility of the Department of Defense is the security of our country. That requires thinking ahead and planning for a wide range of contingencies.Among the future trends that will impact our…
  • Corbett Replaces Photoshopped Web Site Image with New Reality-based Image

    19 Oct 2014 | 7:50 am
    As you've surely all heard by now, PA Governor Tom Corbett was caught with a Photoshopped stock image of a smiling black woman standing next to him as the footer on his campaign web site: After the ensuing brouhaha, the image was replaced with one that better reflects the reality of the support for his campaign:Well it has in my head anyway.Here's the real replacement in case you're interested:
  • More On Corbett's Desperation And Deceit

    18 Oct 2014 | 5:42 am
    Yesterday, I posted this.This morning I discovered that factcheck.org had already taken a look at the TV ad.  And what did they find?  Take a look:We’ve noticed that the most deceitful attack ads often come from candidates who are most desperate. For example, consider the claim by Pennsylvania’s unpopular Republican Gov. Tom Corbett that his opponent “is promising to raise middle-class taxes,” when in fact Democratic nominee Tom Wolf promises to cut them. [Emphasis added.]Yea. It doesn't get much better for the Corbett Tom.Wolf has proposed increasing the state’s income…

    17 Oct 2014 | 3:04 am
    How else can you explain such a fleeting connection with the truth?I've seen this ad on my TV a few times (as I am sure you all have):But did you know that it's all based on a smeary lie? Look at the image.  It reads, "Wolf calls for income tax increase" and references that to PoliticsPA.But when you actually go to PoliticsPA looking for a mention of Wolf increasing the income tax, you'll find this piece.  In it, it reads:The Democratic nominee’s proposed budget would also adjust the state’s 43 year old income tax. If elected, he plans to shift more of the financial burden onto…

    I've often said that Mila is the one who is going to destroy me, and it's absolutely true. The child is ... opinionated. She's also extremely determined and feisty. I'm sure all of that is eventually going to serve her well, but for now it means I get yelled at a lot. If she's awake and no one has acknowledged her awesomeness, she yells. If she's hungry and there is not food being shoved in her face, she yells. If she sees a toy she wants and she can't reach it, she yells. If she flips herself onto her stomach and then immediately regrets that choice, she yells. Mila yells a lot. (In…

    Waaaaaaay back when I first made this space public, I sort of had a thing for reborn dolls. If you've never had the joy of experiencing my obsession, you should check out this post. And this one. Oh, and this one. I maaaaybe sort of still have that obsession in my back pocket, but good news! It's in my back pocket! That's a safe place for it as far as the internet is concerned. Mostly I moved it there because something new and shiny came along and distracted me. That happens a lot. Shiny! But then every once in a while, a shiny creepy doll will get my attention and make me want to move that…

    I have no idea why it didn't occur to me sooner, but after one trip to Loving Hut, I knew I had a mission. Fried Tofu. I know. Fried Tofu sounds like the most lunatic vegetarian sort of thing possible, but it really is good. Because FRIED. FRIED is the key to destroying the overly healthy thing as well as all of the lunatic. Think of it as a Fried Twinkie, but without all the confusion associated with trying to figure out who in the world first thought to fry a Twinkie.

  • Brash And Bold : Rob Rossi Makes Some Good Points, Steelers Need to Keep Going Big.

    WVUTimmy
    21 Oct 2014 | 11:08 am
    Go big or stay home. That is the way the Steelers have to think, how they can make something of this season and a necessary mantra for their challenging course. There can be no Steelers football in January if the rest of October and all of November and December aren't about going big. The offense has not always looked like the Steelers' attack of the past three seasons. There was actually a time when Ben Roethlisberger was allowed to throw the ball, and by that I mean he spiraled it downfield. The Steelers were basically a top-five team in terms of average yards per pass attempt over the…

    Happy they won, looked great at times but I'm not ready to crown them kings yet. Thought Adams stepped up well. Thought outside the one play DD did a good job and Pouncey. AB and Bell, they are men among men. I think Motes should get more snaps than Harrison. The beard is back ! Cortez shouldn't be allowed on the field. William Gay is a great resource and if Taylor comes back, Gay needs to remain as corner playing opposite of Ike. LMAO when Troy leaped over the line. Offense was not putting up td's second half once again. Punter did great, coverage team was great, Dri Archer is a waste of our…
  • 2014 NFL Pick-em's Contest: Week 08

    Congrats to Bradyshawda for taking the Week 06 win. He now leads the contest. This year, more than likely the top seed will receive a bye straight to the second round. We will then have 9 other posters make the playoffs. The first round will consist of a elimination round where there will be 3 matches of 3 players. The survivors from that round will then go into the second round. From the divisional round to the Superbowl, each week the lowest scoring player is eliminated until one stands at the end. A little different than pervious years, but makes earning the top seed very important. Week…

    It's a new Steelers season and with that comes the inaugural - Fire _____________ Offensive Coordinator. Going back to Ken Whisenhunt on the internet, fans have wanted the Steelers Offensive Coordinator fired. It must be what the cool kids do.. like wetting their pants in public. What is it about the Steelers Offense though? Why is it, that the Pittsburgh Steelers Offense, is always under-performing despite the Offensive Coordinator? The Steelers never consistently score enough Points despite being able to rack up yardage between the 20's. Look at the chart below : Year Yards Rank Yards…
