  • I just finished the first season of Orange Is the New Black. I said I wasn’t going to watch anything that wasn’t all the way over, but the model for this show—dumping entire seasons out there at once with no ads—works for me too. The show is largely what I expected, but there’s also a sweetness about it that has caught me off guard.
  • Tony Kanaan was really strong at Pocono and fell victim to a fuel strategy that didn’t work. He finished 11th and should have won. I’m pulling hard for him at Iowa this weekend. He always runs well there, and it’s a ridiculously entertaining track. It’s kind of the Bristol of IndyCar. A lap at race speed takes about 17 seconds.
  • I am a Southern boy to the core. But I don’t really like “Free Bird.” I never have. Sorry if I’ve disappointed you.
  • Brought back some food for a coworker earlier this week and was concerned about accidentally leaving it in the car. My solution was to turn my parking lights on, and when I opened the door the lights-on warning would remind me. It worked beautifully. I did forget about it, and the lights-on warning did remind me.
  • My favorite sub place is Firehouse, and part of what I like about it is the Captain Sorensen hot sauce. It’s not hot at all, but it’s indispensably delicious on my Hook & Ladder.
  • Locals, you want a killer look at what’s going on with the Madison Pike construction? Wow, it’s going to be very different. Check it out.
  • Got a blog, a business, or both? What are you doing tonight? Come see us.

  1. Season 2 of Orange is the New Black impressed me. I was worried it would be another season of the same so I wasn’t really sure where they could take it. They mixed up the style of story presentation along with some new characters (as you’d expect) and did a good job of keeping it entertaining.

    • I’ve enjoyed the show very much. There is a tenderness about it that has disarmed me, and in this kind of entertainment, I’ve come to value the unexpected highly.
