More of the World Is Unfair

Quelle surprise!

Actually, what amazes me about this clip is that "dowdy Christine" did so poorly. But then again, I've always preferred women with brains first.

We'll Miss You, Robbie

Robbie Greenberger passed away August 14.

He was one of two children, and the only son, of our friends Bob and Debbie Greenberger.

Here are the eulogies from the service, one by Deb, one by her brother, Robbie's Uncle Jim.

In lieu of flowers contributions in Robbie’s memory may be made to The Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer, Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital, 20 York Street, New Haven, CT 06511-3202 ( For information or to offer an online condolence please visit

I cannot imagine the pain. I've lost my parents, as has my spouse, but nobody can prepare for this.

I hope you will donate to the Tommy Fund, and I hope you will consider marrow donation or at least a monetary donation.

Feed the World

Will Harbaugh Channels Bob Geldof

Does anyone know what a Boomtown Rat is anymore? Probably not.

It's what Bob Geldof used to be before he created Live-Aid and asked Michael Jackson to do the last useful thing the King of Pop ever did.

Will Harbaugh, whom I know because of Interlac, sent this link. Since I had just opened one from him about self-CPR that had proven to be a debunked Internet urban legend, I was skeptical, but bore Will out, and gosh darn if taking this uber-vocabulary test doesn't generate funds to feed the hungry.

So have fun. Feel smug as you do the right thing. As for me, though senescent, I am insuperable, so shut your gosport.
