    RIP Stan Lee

    As the Marvel fanatic I am, I was saddened to log into social media this AM and find that Stan has left us.

    He had a few rough years here near the end, but that never diminished his...

    A used Ninja 1000 ABS has finally come up for sale in Albuquerque. Like an idiot, I foolishly went and sat on it this past Saturday. And dammit: I fit.

    I'm sorry that I canceled at the last moment. Apparently, I'm not allowed to leave my office during the first three weeks of September. Or somebody needs to develop workable human cloning, stat.
