Reason #34958 why I love my job

The big boss just invited anyone in the company who's interested to spend next tuesday at a rally in Harrisburg of the Pennsylvania Coalition to End Handgun Violence. Free day off, free bus ride, free lunch.

Gun violence probably isn't in my top 5 list of statewide issues I care about, but it's certainly on the list somewhere, and climbing. Plus, hey, day off. I think I'm gonna sign up.

Oh, and you're invited, by the way. Check out the above links or drop me a comment if you're interested.

Something's going around...

Are you sick right now?

Yes. Dammit. I hate this cold/flu/whatever.

I had an impressive streak going, from around Summer 2000 through some point in late fall 2001, when I only ever caught any bugs when the Eagles were playing the Redskins. It was freaky. Before then, the Skins were the NFC East team I hated the least, but that changed things around.
