Another work week coming to a close, another work week supposedly under control that went all kaplooey around midday Wednesday and hasn’t stopped yet…but still ya gotta blog.

Tracey’s off to a business conference in St. Louis, Missouri today. She’ll only be gone for a 1.5 days but I sure wish I was going with her, if only to find a place to sit by my beloved Mississippi to watch her roll along past towards dreamy places and contemplate life.

Tracey was mentioning last night that she didn’t like the idea of flying on Friday the 13th, and I told her to stop being nutty. My guess the fact that news about that commuter plane crash outside of Buffalo, New York being splashed across CNN across airport TVs won’t help her (and others) discomfort about flying any less. May God have mercy on the souls of those who died in the crash, and consolation for their families and loved ones.

What’s this I hear about New Hampshire and Pease G.C. being a finalist in the venues being considered for this July’s 19th annual Goodboys Invitational?

My how the years fly! God willing, next year at this time we’ll be talking about Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where, God willing, the Goodboys will be planning a triumphal visit to celebrate two decades of Goodboys gatherings. That’s a long, long time and a long, long way from Bethel, Maine where the first Goodboys weekend took place back in 1991.

That was quite a wind storm the Northeast had yesterday.

Utilities such as Jersey Central Power & Light in New Jersey reported downed power lines from wind-snapped trees. About 250,000 customers remained without power Thursday in Pennsylvania, and 140,000 more in Ohio. There were also about 109,000 outages in West Virginia, more than 35,000 in New Jersey and 14,900 in Michigan.

What a crazy winter it has been in the northeast this year! Wonder if the winds had anything at all to do with the plane crash. I’ve never felt comfortable in commuter planes.

The Boston Globe’s Nick Carfardo has a nice column today about the contrasts between two American League East competitors who have gathered in Florida for spring training. Look, they Yankees may indeed have assembled a fine team and will have a great year, but the amount of pressure they’ll be under to win it all between their fans, the NY media, and team ownership, will be beyond intense.

…And the A-Fraud steroids controversy isn’t getting things off on the right foot.

Phoenix, Arizona the second-worst kidnapping city in the world? I have friends with contacts in the border enforcement community who say Mexico is far closer to disintegration and civil war than people think due to the drug wars, and they can’t believe the media seems so uninterested or unwilling to cover it.

…But how can they bother with such trifling matters when they have their collectives lips permanently stitched to President Obama’s ass?

But more on that tomorrow…

  1. Always wanted to play Pease. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.
