My Morning in ExileIn case you don't read the comments that often, there's a fantastic Star Wars conversation happening in "And That Happened." I'm preoccupied with the OSHA violations on the Death Star, Lar worries about whether C-3PO was unfair to R2 when he left him after the escape pod crash-landed, and everyone wants to know whether or not the Jawas were required to give Uncle Owen a replacement mech-droid after R5-D4's motivator went kaplooie. We're dealing with a sh*t here.
And yes, I'm well aware of the wrongful death suit that was brought on behalf of the civilian contractors on the unfinished Death Star. I cannot say anything about it substantively at this time, as it has always been my policy not to comment on pending litigation. Suffice it to say, however, that I have pledged to return just compensation on behalf of the families of the victims, and will not rest until the so-called "New Republic" ceases the rather Imperial stance of hiding behind sovereign immunity and makes these families whole.

I’m almost disappointed that Tim Hudson is up to AAA already, wanted to watch him next week with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans and find out how he struck so many Yankees out, once upon a time.

Not only because Dusty was being dumb, but also because his views were seconded by none other than Tony Bernazard, who apparently worked for the players’ union at the time! That’s funny on so many levels. Does anyone know if Tony

As for Epstein, he’s been good at trades and player development, but quite mixed at free agent acquisition. Ironically, he’s done just fine with low cost free agents - Lorretta and some guy named Ortiz come to mind. But when Theo thinks a guy from another team’s worth $9 mil annually or more, look out. If he had a smaller budget, it’d be a problem. But it’s Boston, so it all works out.

So according to Dusty Baker my daughter should have very few excuses for not excelling at any sport or activity as she is covered by my white skin to deal with the colder climates and my wife’s brown skin, from her African American mother and Puerto Rican father, will help here be successful in the heat and sun. Sweet.
Apparently all you folks who marry people from the same race are setting your kids up for potential failure.

S’like newsvine gets the goods these days and ShysterBall gets the links to the good. Need to update my RSS feed.
