I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

Boston Bombing

What We Know Two homemade bombs made from standard pressure cookers filled with BB's and nails were detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15, 2013, at roughly 2:49 pm local time, thirteen seconds apart on Boylston Street.
The improved explosive devices (IED's) used in the attack killed three and injured somewhere between 170 and 210 others. The number of injured has climbed, as not all injuries were external, or may not have been as severe as several other (some resulted in limb-loss and/or required amputation).
Initially, it was reported that law enforcement had brought in one (or two) non-white males to question about the bombing. Others reported a high number of people at the scene were also questioned.
The New York Post published a cover with a picture and story about two young men who they deemed as foreign and suspects. The NY Post has defended this by saying the picture of these two men were handed over to feds to pursue with questionin…

Thoughts

Just a short poem that came to me, in the form of a conversation. Legitimately, these words were just a response, not even poetical. Great ideas...




I have thoughts,
they come...
and go. The
really good ones
you latch on to,
the rest you
release like a fish
in the sea.

Don't Relocate The Sacramento Kings, Expand.

With the proposed relocation of the Kings to Seattle still up in the air, let's open a discussion on another solution: Expansion.




I understand that this entire situation has been driven by the fact that the King's performance, both economically and as an NBA team, has been poor as of late. But moving the franchise will not change how terribly the Kings will fair in league play, nor is there any evidence that such a move would help the franchise perform better economically. The Kings fan base would be just as weak, if not weaker, in Seattle. While Seattle is stronger financially, the city is dominated by the other major leagues. The struggling Kings would have to fight for attention the way the Hornets(soon to be Pelicans) do in the Saints' dominated city of New Orleans. In Sacramento, the NBA has a monopoly on pro sports. With this as the case, the NBA is better suited to remain in Sacramento.


But, all that said, I do believe that both cities should have teams, not one at…
