Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Our descent away from representational government may have started with the appointment by a President of a Czar for this and a Czar of that. Who elected a Climate Czar for example? No more Czars... Not sure if there's any truth to the rumor that FaceBook, Amazon and Apple next have their sights set on the Farmers Only dating app because of the role farmers played in the Whiskey Rebellion insurrection... Boston College fired men's basketball coach Jim Christian on Monday. Even though he was the coach for seven years if you gave me a hundred chances I could not have told you who the BC coach was on Sunday. The job seems to be cursed since the Eagles fired Al Skinner all those years ago... Good baseball debate: who was the better player - Dustin Pedroia or Chase Utley? Offensively Utley has the edge but Pedroia has 4 Gold Gloves to his name... One fallacy of Social Media is that your voice is actually being heard. People like Joe Rogan, Matthew Ridley, Bill Simmons, and many, many others NEVER look at the comments or mentions. And regular users like you and me are more and more likely to mute others we find disagreeable. There's a very good chance your response is never even seen...
