I buy my fishing license and state park pass every year, whether I intend to use them or not. I am happy to help fund these resources.
On 140 years of blue jeans
I guess I'm average as far as jeans are concerned. I own 7 pair. 4 are strictly for work, covered in paint stains (probably also worth more on e-bay). the other 3 are in various degrees of worn-ness. I despise the holey ones, though I do own a pair. My daughter bought them for me. Those fashionable little tatters have now grown into a huge hole at the knee that continues to grow every time i bend at the knees. I'm thinking they will soon be "work shorts".

On Dalai Lama to speak to Wisconsin Assembly
"So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the 18th and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice."
On WAR: What is it good for?
Baseball is a business tim. Perhaps the owners need a stat for themselves. We could call it the BS. or BUTTS in SEATS. You take the number of jerseys a player sells, add the number of ticket holders who call that player their favorite, multiply by how many bats a player goes through (american league pitchers would default to the group average), multiply that by the fraction (number of child support payments over number of arrests), and divide by the players salary. I'll let you do the math!
On Would you ever bike to work?
A little far for me. But the wife and I did recently purchase a tandem. We have logged about 10 hours the past week and a half, and look forward to many more.
On Hospitals see surge of superbug-fighting products
Superbugs, created by our obsession with being anti-bacterial. i'll eat it off the floor. I don't always wash my hands. I don't get the flu shot. and haven't missed a day of work for sickness in years.
