March Madness

March 28th, 2005 | No Comments | Posted in General

Apparently (unbeknownest to me) there are some young lads venturing to our fine town to participate in a couple friendly games of basketball. Just in case there was anybody in downtown St. Louis that was un-aware of this fact, some wiley marketing/advertising folks decided to make it a bit easier for us to realize what’s going down in STL this coming weekend.

I snapped a few pics on the (4 block) walk from my parking lot to work. Enjoy!

BTW: I didn’t really get to watch much of the tournament in the beginning 3 rounds. I did have a chance to see most of the Elite Eight games this past Easter Weekend. Talk about 4 games of awesome basketball.

Now if I could only get my Hi-Def Antenna to get my local CBS affiliate on a consistent basis. (Raises fist to sky) Damn you technology!

This AP story points out that the President signed a Texas law in 1999 that just about goes directly against what he signed this past week.

It’s terribly sad that this already difficult issue has exploded into such a politcal event. It’s hard for me to find any sense in this other than it’s being turned into a completely political issue, with little regard for the persons involved.

Why do I have to go to a tech-dork website to get the first decent coverage (IMHO) of the Terri Schiavo case?

I think this article on ArsTechnica is particularly well written.

UPDATE:

Here’s a couple articles that will (have been?) published in the New England Journal of Medicine on the case.

Lorem Ipsum

If you’ve ever spent anytime looking at mockups of designs for print or web…you’ve probably seen some text that starts with Lorem Ipsum…

Here’s a site that explains the genesis of the text and why it’s used.

And in other odd news…

The president decided to nominate Paul Wolfowitz as the head of the World Bank…does this make any sense?

This sounds like it’s technically legal…but not particularly ethical.

I’ve always thought it was cool in movies or videogames when you have some military-type or secret agent barking out coordinates to “objectives” something along the line of: “Alpha Team, proceed to location Alpha-Bravo-Niner!”.

Well, now you can integrate the same thing into your everyday life. Something like: “Honey, will you take the trash to the Tango sector?”

Hmm…kinda loses some of the pazzazz, but interesting non-the-less.
