  1. Hmmmm....I think the author is projecting his desires a bit there. 1) I read an article yesterday that said trump was specifically going to knuckle-down on debate prep for the second one and focus on more traditional preparation. 2) a town hall format absolutely favors trump more than Clinton...it is more "seat of the pants" discussion...he won't be stuck behind a dais and can better interact with the audience. IMO, Clinton struggles more in that type of environment.

  3. Absolutely.....heard the following on the radio today - Ricketts Family bought the Cubs for ~$890M in 2009. Cubs are now estimated by Forbes to be worth $2.7B....and in all likelihood, if they were put on the market today, they would sell for more than $3B. So yeah, dropping $50m to keep the guy who engineered the turnaround seems like a smart investment!
  4. Glad to hear she went in early..... Life is certainly eerie that way sometimes....
  5. Game on tomorrow.....can the US win back the Cup on home soil or will the EU dominance continue? Bring your best smack talk or stay home!
  6. Really good article from ESPN: The Magazone re: the relationship between Jon Lester and Anthony Rizzo. Also shines well on Theo.... http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/17659023/cancer-survivors-contenders-anthony-rizzo-jon-lester-bond-goes-deeper-cubs
  7. Huh...you are right. I coulda sworn there was another major release the same day and thought it was GnR. Guess my Sometheimers Disease is kicking in today....
  8. i Seem to recall the GnR albums and LT / HT albums all being released ont he same day....at least here in the US.
  9. Yeah, I am in the same boat, I am really starting to re-think my plan to vote for Johnson. His "Aleppo" fiasco was bad enough, but yesterday he could not even name one world leader. Sure, he has no chance of winning, and my vote for him would largely have been in support of third-parties more than Johnson himself, but yeeesh.....
  10. Yup....don;t read too much into that statement. It is the usual self-deprecating comment that Bruce always uses in regards to his work...."I think it is pretty good" has been said before about a lot of his work. As to the potnetial release date, there are a whole host of reasons why it may not get released this year....but probably the biggest is Sony balancing out it's release schedule for the remainder of the year. We don't really know what other releases are planned / scheduled from other artists and labels will look to avoid piling too much into the market at the same time.
  11. Here is a great example of what happens when police "shoot first, ask questions later". I couldn't even watch the video after reading the description of what happened. Horrific.
  12. Very interesting angle...and one that Manfred seems to have been hinting at in his decision to uphold Rose's ban form baseball. And here is something I did not know.... I always assumed that, like Rose, he was never even considered for the HoF due to his ban. And Shoeless Joe should be in in LONG before Rose ever gets considered.
  13. I don't think anyone is disagreeing with that.....I agree 100%. That does not mean, however, that the only option is to use lethal force. (and just to be clear, I'm not necessarily saying that what happened in Charlotte was a "bad shooting." I just think it is indicative of the poor training and options that re given to our police forces).
  14. Why are those the only two options? They weren't.....but that is simply how we have trained our officers. Again, contain the situation and then develop an action plan. Sure, this was slightly more heightened because Scott had a weapon, but that doesn't mean you need to "shoot first, ask questions later." Non-lethal options would have included plastic bullets, bean bags, tasers, etc. Why couldn;t the police have contained Scott (which he apparently was), taken cover to protect themselves and then developed an action plan?
  15. All the more reason why we should be insisting on better training, dontcha think? "Hmmm....these guys are pretty sloppy. We really need to make sure we train them properly."
