Two Weeks Out!

The election is in two weeks!  Yipes!

In the spirit of things, here are a few articles that have nothing to do with the campaign.  At all (okay, a little).

Acclaimed Colombian Institution Has 4,800 Books and 10 Legs <–This guy is my hero.

Every time I write one of these articles, I wonder, who the heck are those 1% who think the economy is “excellent?”  This article told me.

So, none of my teams made the post season…At least the Times has baseball articles to keep me interested, like this one about the crazy ground rules at the Tampa Bay Rays’ roofed stadium and this guy who writes a sports trivia e-mail every week, with questions like:

“Can you name two players who played in the Final Four in basketball and in the World Series?” (Read the article for the answer…)

One guy, who invented an algorithm for predicting future performance by baseball players and teams has now moved on to analyzing polls.  Woohoo!  Baseball and politics!  Here’s his website, ps.

And just to end it all politically, Bob Herbert’s column today.

    The link to the stadium rules is the same as the link to the optimists. Please fix it because that sounds like something I need to know!
