Miserable Red Sox Fan 

I love the optimism of a new blog, The Miserable Red Sox Fan Speaks! I just wish I could share it...

But, as every year, hope springs eternal as training camp opens. Pitchers and catchers reported today, and what a crop of pitchers it is!

The Sox are back in business, and they're undefeated. The sky is the limit and all dreams are possible. Enjoy it for however long it lasts, Sox fans...

And if you happen to be a satanist Yankees fan, I'll be instituting a small fee for each visit to Move Along. I figure you can buy anything you want, so you can easily afford it.

UPDATE: Turns out the blog is run by Kelly Jefferson, who has run the Miserable Red Sox Fan Forum for quite a while. I used to visit it frequently before it got quiet, and I even had a comment (a good one, I thought) about a Fenway memory of mine, but alas, it is no more. My comment, that is, not the site. The site is alive and well.

I forgive you for erasing my memory, Kelly.

There is nothing from me in this week's Carnival of the Vanities, which, truth be told, probably makes it even better than last week's! It's worth your time to check it out and maybe find some new blogs and new viewpoints.

Amuse yourself there while I try to reassemble the twisted wreckage of my wireless router. And if the Carnival fails to satiate your ravenous craving for blogs, there is list of my favorites over to the right. I'm sure they would appreciate a new reader or two.

Hardware problems remain, and until they're fixed, this space will be mostly quiet. It's a bit frustrating, especially since one of my readers is to blame. (Well, not really... it just so happened that he was the last person to touch a particular piece of equipment when it still worked.) Heh.

Even if this gets fixed, I'll be busy for most of the weekend, so don't expect much until... oh, Monday I'd say. Unless something really big happens, like a revolution in Iran, or if any progress is made on the topless coffee shop in Madison, Maine.

Hmm. I sometimes stop for coffee in Madison when I'm on my way to the mountains to ski...

Finally, before I go back to berating and abusing my wireless router, a warning: Watch what you eat. Oh, and if you run a food service business, consider a more lenient break policy...

Down time 

Because I'm having hardware issues, and because I will be out of town for a couple of days, there probably won't be anything new here until the latter part of the week...

Say what? 

Today's Bangor Daily News has a headline that only the American news media could write:

"U.S. successes in Iraq complicate guerrilla war."

No joke. Can you imagine reading, "Chemotherapy success hinders cancer treatment?" No, because that would be absurd to anyone who reads it. But somehow the headline above made sense to the BDN's editors.

A spate of arrests -- including the capture of Saddam Hussein -- have broken rebel command networks and forced fighters underground, a top U.S. military official told The Associated Press.
The BDN headline isn't online, unfortunately, but the AP story can be found here. The headline is not as amusing, though.
