Pony?

You've got me on the pony promo: please elaborate Johnman.
We're getting the brooms ready in KC for Sunday's baseball game, after the Chiefs beat the 49r's.

congrats

My Brewers really screwed the pooch this year. After spending most of the season in first place, they lose 22 of their last 31 and end up in third place. Funny the first 1/3 of the Royals lineup last night were former Brewers, as is the manager Ned Yost. Yost was fired after almost botching the Crew out of the '08 playoff picture. Go figure.

A long, strange and trippy 12 inning game gives Kansas City life in October!
Sorry Marye about ending the A's season....

'It's time to make emotional abuse a crime.
Psychological violence is hard to define and hard to police. That's exactly why those experiencing it need the law to be changed.'

Insightful piece by Lauren Laverne - http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/sep/07/time-to-make-emotional-abuse-a-crime?CMP=twt_gu

An average of seven women are killed by their current or ex-partners every month in England and Wales. The numbers in the United States are considerably higher.

Lauren Laverne: 'What I remember most about emotional abuse is that it's like being put in a box. Maybe you think it's a treasure box at first: you're in there because you're special. Soon the box starts to shrink.'

I don't know if any of you folks have been following this

as, on one level, it's a regional grocery store issue in New England. However, the Save Market Basket saga is, in my opinion, the most important business story in recent memory, representing as it does the success of stakeholders refusing to let a business be destroyed by greedheads. God bless those folks.

Where to begin?

Israel/Gaza, the Iraq debacle, Syria, Libya, unresolved Afghan election, the August recess with really not much hope of anything productive from congress, Snowden asylum, Ukraine crisis, the CIA spying on the senate, California drought, November midterm elections, suing the president?

It's no surprise things are a little dry around here, especially since Anna's gone...oh well. Ignorance is bliss!
