Tis better to have loved and lost ...
The all-time awesomest radio station of all-time, Columbus 106.7 FM -- playing nothing but TV theme songs -- is gone. The format change has happened. Now it's just that usual boring music stuff.

Shakespeare was right
We had a minor little fender-bender last Saturday, coming back from my Dad's in North Carolina. We and the car made it all the way back to Ohio, body shop is working on it, i ahve a rental car. Nobody was hurt. No big deal.

And today I had nine (9!) solicitations from personal injury lawyers arrive in the mail. I imagine bunches more are coming later this week.

"first, we kill all the lawyers."
