This, That, Whathaveyou...

While I wait for the Twins and Red Sox to get underway in Fort Myers, a few bits of housekeeping.

What am I reading these days, you ask? (As if anyone is actually reading this. Heh.)

Charles Pierce has a great new blog up at the Boston Globe site. Not reading it regularly will almost certainly plunge you into the Great Lake of Fail.

For all thinks policy-related, Matt Yglesias generally has the take I like the most. (Incidentally, "take" as synonym for opinion or analysis really took me a while to get over. Mostly because at my last gig, "take" was shorthand for any file in our hopelessly obsolete newsroom system. Yes, I coded page layouts in BASIC. The newspaper business has a sense of humor, some days.)

Finally, life really wouldn't have been complete without a blog devoted to Nick Punto. This is destined to be must-read stuff, people.

And you might think the visage of the slap-hitting Pirahna a'unicornback would be the best picture of the week. But you would be wrong.

Spring Is Rounding Third, And Headed For Home

For a mere $20, I renewed my subscription to MLB Gameday Audio. And I am now listening to the Minnesota Twins play the Boston Red Sox in a meaningless baseball game.

Oh, how it warms my heart.
