Wednesday Scrapple

The air smells a little sweeter today, the colors look much brighter.

It's Super Bowl week.  As always, no plans to watch the game.  The hype was fun for a couple of days.  I've now grown weary.

Baseball Hall of Fame class of 2019:  Mariano Rivera?  Yes!  Everyone else?  No!  It's the Hall of Fame, not the Hall of Numbers or the Hall of Very Good.

It seems like several others have joined me in saying January seems endless.

CNN's Jim Acosta is writing a book about covering the Trump administration.  I will always remember the words of the great David Brinkley:  "Our job is not to love or hate.  It's to tell you what happened."  Why is that such a difficult concept to grasp?

We just lived through one of the worst weather weeks in a while, and there is more to come.  We'll see what the groundhog has to say Saturday.

Steely Dan was so underrated.

77 year old Socialist Bernie Sanders is running for the Democratic presidential nominations.  Anything is possible.

There are security cameras everywhere these days.  Why do people continue to be so stupid?

The state of Washington is dealing with a measles outbreak.  What year is this?

It seems there's been a spurt of restaurant closings and openings lately.  Market over saturation.  It's the circle of life.
