Happy Labor Day!

September 5, 2011 Comments off

I did not work today at all.  :)   I hope you enjoyed it as well.

More here about U.S. labor day – I find it remarkable they mention Haymarket. I worked very near that corner for years…

Rep. Cantor poses for the Trillion Dollar Coin

Inquiring minds want to know.  Commenter Kris Smith provides the obvious-after-its-said answer:

Eric Cantor

 

[Update: Tom Hickey points out that Grover Norquist (in the comments and over at Marginal Revolution) has a strong claim to this honor.]

Stonehenge on the Summer Solstice

Happy Summer Solstice! It’s the longest day of the year!

I am looking forward to the second half of 2011.  I am optimistic about the U.S. economy and world economy!

Dennis Rodman was mind-bogglingly awesome, and I’m back

The Worm is a total outlier.

I just got back from a long work related trip.  Prior to that I had been working very hard.  But I my work ethic pales in comparison to Rodman.

Here is a case for Rodman as the greatest player in NBA history.  It’s worth reading it all. It has a dozen different charts, measuring different aspects of his game, that place him way outside superman territory.    Even against other all time greats, he’s a freak of nature that seems to defy statistical laws.
