  1. I’m packed. I don’t even want to wonder what I forgot.

    PrairiePond, unless you have some excellent reasons (me just returning is NOT an excellent reason!) plan to stay here Saturday night, the 12th! Does Summer eat cats? ;-(

      Have a safe trip but most important – have a good time! A wedding is a special celebration and I hope you get alot of good pictures.

      Have a good trip. 6c70 wishes she could join you (for the trip, Boston, etc.).

    “When interrogating a possible suspect, glibness as a reaction to a outrageous act is a signal of feelings of guilt and or association”.

    Having read the responses in reaction to the theory that Roeder did not act alone in the killing of Dr. Tiller. On TBTSNBN, I was reminded of the above.

    Ahh between the honey do list, the list I want to do and needing to find the metal work that holds up the front porch so to replace the rotting wood piliars. Plus needing to get painting done so it is dry enough to withstand the rain that is to come in tonight.

    I have to get off and do things.

    Somethings just suck, you know, and there is no other way to put it.

    Detroit Tiger’s pitcher Armando Galarraga had two outs in the ninth tonight, throwing a perfect game when the 27th batter for Cleveland hit a ground ball to the infield and the first base umpire blew the call ending Galarraga bid for only the 21st perfect game in baseball history and his bid for a no hitter.

    Replays show that the hitter was out at first.

    There is no provision in baseball rules for overturning the ruling on the field.

    Sometimes, things just suck.

      Now the umpire in question, Jim Joyce, says that he definitely blew the call.


      Small consolation for Armando Galarraga, since there is no provision in baseball rules for overturning the call, as bad as it was.

      The runner was out by a step and a half.

      History has been denied.

    The umpire even when to the Tiger’s locker room to apologize to Armando Galarraga for making a horrible call.

    Credit him for that, it takes a real human to admit an error, but the fact remains that Galarraga has been denied his place in history.

    And that sucks.
