Junk Drawer, Day Before

That's poetic, in case you didn't notice.

The Ducks are back in the Top 25.  The Beavers aren't.

The Phillies look like Phulphilling their dreams.  Jamie Moyer isn't really old.

Way to go, Lute.  You really helped your team out by waiting until now.  What a hero.  He's the guy who whined about Jerryd going one and done.  I remember.  Glad you're out of there, Jerryd.

The British pound is taking a pasting, again.

Who is Peter Wallison, and what is he predicting these days?  I want to buy into whatever he predicts.  A classic example of government doing something with good intentions and some good results, but also some undesired consequences.  Hindsight is easier than foresight.  That's one guy who got it right on the foresight side of things. 

The next bubble?  Perhaps Eastern Europe.  The continental banks have massive exposure to Eastern Europe, and Hungary and others are going into the tank.  Hungary raised interest rates into the teeth of a weak economy to try and protect their currency.  If Eastern Europe folds, look for even more bailouts of European banks. 

Tomorrow, we get to forget all about all that stuff for a couple hours.  Tomorrow, the world will get its first taste of what this team is really about.  A great place to start.  If we lose, everyone expected it.  If we win, it sends tremors throughout the league.  Go Blazers.

Message for Sophia.  (I posted the following over the weekend, but you weren't around.  Nice to know that someone around here has a weekend life, not like those of us enslaved to the Bedge 24/7).

I’ve needed to do this for a couple days.

A few weeks back, I made a comment (talking about Vietnam) on a junk drawer that you said was insulting. I didn’t think it was at the time.

I went back and looked at it a couple days ago, because it still bothered me, and it was insulting. It made it sound as if all your ideas were dumb. I don’t agree with a lot of your ideas, but that doesn’t make them dumb.

Anyway, it was a very bad comment, and I apologize (a little late, sorry about that, too). I didn’t say that at all the way I meant to, and the way it reads (when I looked at it later) is insulting and rotten and everything I despise about internet communication.

So I’m sorry and I hope you’ll forgive me, and we can put aside any baggage and enjoy the season.
