  • On the off-chance someone reading this could be persuaded and massive, unpleasant disruption to his/her life consequently avoided:  “storming” any U.S. government facility is a really, really bad idea.
  • The actuarial tables have finally caught my musical childhood in earnest, and sadly, the assault is only beginning. Ric Ocasek is dead at 75. Thank you for a lot of great music, man. RIP.
  • I’ve made plans to go to Dave and Buster’s for the first time the second week of January. Everyone will be broke from Christmas, and hanging onto New Year’s resolutions. With a little luck, it will be bitterly cold. All of these things thin crowds.
  • Alabama’s defensive front was roundly unimpressive against South Carolina. I have a feeling we’re going to need a lot of points this year.
  • The net is up in arms about someone looking into remaking The Princess Bride. I think this is an enjoyable movie, but I have never considered it an iconic cornerstone of comedic cinema (as so many obviously do). A new one wouldn’t move my needle.
  • The final race of the 2019 IndyCar Series is Sunday, at Laguna Seca in Monterey. Josef Newgarden has a 41-point lead in the championship standings, but there are double points on Sunday, so Alexander Rossi, Simon Pagenaud, and Scott Dixon are all still in the hunt. It’s been a fantastic season!
  • There was a welcome whisper of fall early this morning. We still have 90s forecast in a few days, but it looks as if they will be short-lived.
