Linky Links

Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.

- The rise and fall of Gerd Bonk, the world champion of doping. It is uncanny how Russia under Putin seems to be replicating the doping deeds of East Germany.

- Sad but true - slavery in the modern world is alive and thriving. Roughly 46 million people worldwide are being forced to live as slaves.

- Mystery object beyond Neptune in strange orbit cannot be explained. There is so much we don't know about the outer solar system.

- Nice scouting report on Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi. With Benintendi, Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. - the Red Sox have the best young outfield and maybe the best outfield period in baseball.

- You will see lots of these types of political ads over the next few years. And those who support Trump will get what they deserve.


  1. Somehow Cruz will be just about only one to leave this debacle with honor.

  2. Mitt Romney was perhaps the first to call out Trump as a fraud. And Romney never wavered from his stance.
