Tom Cruise has been fired at Paramount.

About goddamn time. No one disputes your right to have views, but there is no reason for you to go around disparaging others. I’m glad someone in this world, other than Chick Fil A, is able to say, “No, it’s not about the money. I don’t care how much money I could make by not doing this, I’m just going to do it because it’s the right thing to do.”

There have been 40000 desertions from the Army since 9/11. Forty freaking thousand. That tells you something, doesn’t it?

Impeachment. Now.
Awful, awful, awful news. Pena, Ramirez hurt, and Ortiz and Lester hospitalized with potentially fatal illnesses. We can’t even rent a break now.

Ortiz and Lester, but especially Ortiz, have given me more joy than I can possibly express. The fact that their very lives could be threatened brings me up short. I hope fervently that both men make full recoveries, and, secondarily, return to the field.

Schilling got 3000 K, too-I had no idea he was at all close to that. His Hall candidacy may be less questionable than I thought.

I can’t believe I was able to snag Delmon Young for my fantasy team-I was sure he wouldn’t be available. I may go fishing for Scott Baker, too, since Brad Radke just went down too. Now Thome is hurt again, so I have to deal with that, too. I probably won’t win, but maybe I can cause some headaches for the leaders.
