Chicago Cubs~ True Cubs fans knew it was coming. Besides, if the Cubs ever went all the way and won it, Chicago would go postal and the President would have to send troops in to re-establish order. None of the major companies headquartered there would get any work done for months and the global economy would tank. So it's probably all for the best. The sacrifice of the victimized fans is duly noted -- and on behalf of a grateful nation...

There is, however, something magical about the number 100.

Fuller Seminary is now offering a DMiss in ethnomusicology. If they had a cohort for uke players I might consider signing up.

~ The latest: parents paying big bucks sending their children to specialty preschools for diversity training -- including language acquisition. Of course, if you choose the right area you can just send your kids outside to play with the neighbors.

~ Now that Don Johnson is living on the West Coast he's starting to notice how Chicago-centric the Covenant feels.

~ It's looking more and more like the brave new world is here. "Craig Venter, the controversial DNA researcher involved in the race to decipher the human genetic code, has built a synthetic chromosome out of laboratory chemicals and is poised to announce the creation of the first new artificial life form on Earth."

~ The purpose of the vermiform appendix has been discovered. Now they're going to start working on the mystery of the wisdom teeth.

~ The snow has begun (but not here on Guam).

~ Is it possible to be a follower of Christ and remain a Hindu?

~ Amiga lives! And they're fixin' to release a new version of the OS.

Yeah, it's tough to admit it after years in the midwest. I attribute the attitude to the "just-don'g-get-it" factor, even though many Californians and west-caosters come to Chicago, they quickly conform. Oh well!
