It’s 49 thru 63 that interest me.

Rule 1: Like most things, those who want it the most are usually those who deserve it the least.

If there is only one law of power, why is this thing 452 pages long?

No one wants to do the annual NCAA shame? If you’re perfect on the Yahoo bracket then it’s a Billion bucks.

@ManchuCandidate: Does that include being perfectly wrong — betting wrong in every game?

The weak are meat and the strong do eat

Okay, so the easiest thing to do is just renew last year’s Yahoo pool, but they decided to be dicks this year and make everyone opt in to receiving text messages from Yahoo in order to participate. You can opt out (reply to the texts with STOP), but that just seems like a hassle. Thoughts?

@mellbell: Thoughts?

Yahoo’s even more desperate than Google+, and their new logo still sucks.

@CaptHowdy: Dude!

@mellbell: OK by me. Thanks for being the commissioner again. Mr Cyn was just asking if we were going to do a pool.

@ManchuCandidate: The game is Madness, Mr. Bond. March Madness.

@mellbell: It’s a mitzvah, what you’re doing.

I can see I’m gonna have to school you guys again this year. You’d think you’d learn.

@CaptHowdy: Well, well, well, look what the cat drug in…

Dear God, not more Sport. Have we learned nothing?

@Benedick: Yes. We have learned nothing, and we’re proud of it. This is the time of year we forgive the NCAA for its many sins and watch the basketball tournament that pays for everything the NCAA screws up in college sports.

I thought about you last Sunday watching the segment on Elaine Stritch on CBS Sunday Morning. Hope you and the dogs got to see it.

@Benedick: only that the well of ignorance is bottomless – and that chaps are always assless.

@Dave H: My hubby was directing her in a play, so who better to give her away at her London wedding? AMIRITE? As he walked her down the aisle she said, ‘Isn’t this fucking ridiculous?’ To which he said, somewhat harshly, to silence her blasphemy as they approached the altar, ‘Elaine!’ She replied, ‘What. You think God never heard the word fuck before?’ I once threw up her. She said, ‘Oh God. Who better to throw up on?’ She is that classy. Her remembrances leave a lot to be desired: as the actress said to the bishop. But a woman of great heart and great talent.

@flypaper: Catt does chaps. Assless or not. It’s his thing. Like Chopin with etudes. It’s all about the fingering.

@Tommmcatt Au Gros Sel: hi tom

Fred Phelps is dying. I love waking up to good news.

@CaptHowdy: Tempered by the fact that, at 84, he’s had ample time to enjoy his venality.
