The [Friday] Papers

Congestion City: Population One.

I felt something coming on for about a week. Well, it's here!

Not the biggest deal in the world, but one of those "colds" or whatever that just makes one miserable, and life pretty annoying. I often wonder how I would hold up with a real sickness.

That reminds me of a song.

(Of course, depression is real. See how that works? Even those of us preaching about it sometimes discount it.)

Anyway, Beachwood photographer-in-residence Helene Smith asked me on the phone last night if I was delirious and I think I just mumbled something like "The czar is dead!"

Also, way to wimp out, Scotland.

The College Football Report
Funny story. Our man on campus, Mike Luce, notified me overnight that his laptop containing the CFR crapped out on him. Attempts to revive it have so far failed.

This sad turn of events is compounded by the fact that Luce is on a business trip Out East and as I type this quite likely giving a PowerPoint presentation he had on a flash drive to high-level executives of a recognizable brand which I will not name due to, um, proprietary reasons.

Win that account for daddy!

Actually, thinking about that song, I've been tested plenty. I guess I just haven't had cancer yet. But I'm sure it's coming!
