On his fifth try — and in a decision long overdo — former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night, marking relief and validation at the same time. Relief that this nonsense hanging around one number (3.9 yards per carry) should hold him back any longer. It was seemingly the lone blemish in a career where no number, no quantification, could accurately depict how he would grind out those tough yards late in games in a career that spanned from 1993-2005. You see, no matter what that final yards per carry…

    The biggest complaint (and biggest question) revolving around the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was the size of each device. Not only were people uncertain about the awkwardness of typing or holding a larger phone to their ear, but some (mostly women) were concerned about how to carry the phone. Men had it a little bit easier with larger pockets on their clothing, but most women felt forced into tossing their phone in their purse, which is always a bit of a problem because we all know that the thing we want in a purse has always fallen to the bottom.

    A federal judge has struck down class allegations in a lawsuit against Cheswick Generating Station.

They also argued that the plant's emissions were negligent, even though they are within regulatory limits. They were seeking class-action status for the lawsuit, but U.S.…

    From The Hill:Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called protesters "low-life scum," after they interrupted a hearing by calling for former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to be arrested for war crimes. Protesters from the group Code Pink chanted, "Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes!" and raised signs in the air as Kissinger entered the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing room. McCain, the chairman of the committee, at first asked, "Could someone find out where the Capitol Police is?"Alas, the good Senator was not taking Code Pink's advice and calling for the Capitol Police to arrest…

  • Senator Pat Toomey - A Science Denier, Still

    Let's start at PennLive:One of the thorniest issues pestering Republicans these days - climate change - was front and center in the U.S. Senate this week, but if you try to make sense of what happened, you might get a headache. On the surface, it might seem as if Republicans, after long being reticent about the issue, finally came out on the side of most Americans and voted to affirm that climate change is real and not a hoax. But beyond the surface little has changed. Sen. Pat Toomey is a good example. Long non-committed on his views about the scientific basis for climate change, the Lehigh…
  • Yea...But It's Still Getting Warmer AND We're To Blame

    From the Tribune-Review today:The West Virginia Board of Education has redefined the word “chicken.” It voted 6-2 last week to reverse a decision that would have included views contrary to the current climate change theology in the Mountain State's science curriculum. The board president is the wife of U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin. What a travesty that West Virginia students are being denied this necessary exercise in critical thinking. This is political indoctrination at its worst. Of course the braintrust isn't telling you the entire story.From the National Journal:Last month, the state Board…

    I think it's normal to have a food you don't eat because you've puked it before, right? If it's not normal, don't tell me. I will just live in my magical fairy land where it is normal.

When I fell ill later that night and they came back up, I demanded a divorce from sweet potatoes for ever and ever, amen. One thing had nothing to do with the other, by the way. I'm pretty sure I caught the flu. It's just that the sweet potatoes are what I…

    As a matter of fact, yes, I am still talking about Alexis' birthday party from last weekend. It was the loooooooongest party ever, so it only makes sense that it would get a bunch of the longest blog posts ever.

    And suddenly, she's nine.We are officially halfway done raising this amazing little person.We're halfway there, but really most of our work is already done. We have given her most of the parts that she needs to build the bridge to the person she will be as an adult. It's up to her now. She gets to decide how she will use those parts, which ones define her, which ones she's going to discard, all of it.I hope she decides to continue to be one of the most empathetic people I know. We have taught her to try to see other people's perspectives and to respect their views and feelings. Right now, she…
