Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

I can see the trend for some companies trying to inject new life into old franchises by simply adding the word Plus or symbol + to the name. So look forward to the re-branding of a bunch of companies like Sears Plus or Barnes and Noble+ in the near future... This is true... A decade ago this month the Los Angeles Dodgers filed for bankruptcy. Now the Dodgers are worth an estimated $3.57 billion (back in 2011 they were worth "just" $800 million)... Cthulhu doesn't play dice with the universe (is that how the quote goes?)... Did a dingo eat your baby?... Journalists are so ego-centric that they called the White House Correspondents Dinner the "nerd prom" but Comic Con was the true nerd prom all along. And nerds will be happy to know that after a year away - the prom is back on this summer...
