You know, it’s bad enough that there are people out there who insist on trying to tear me down for whatever reason. But that some people think they have a right to use my own resources, the things which I own, as a platform with which to disparage me, or try to cause me suffering, is just insane.

Oh, this is a good time of year to be a hockey fan. Only three games today, but they’re spaced so far apart that I get to see all of them, heh heh heh. And who knows, maybe by the time the Wings and Kings get started at 23h30 the Tigers and Cleveland rain delay will be over. Sheesh. I told Jeff that sometime this year I want us to go up and see the Tigers and Cleveland face each other (he being a hapless…
