Scattershooting 10-13-13

Scattershooting while wondering whatever happened to the great

Sunday's Summary

My incomplete recap of the week

  • Being offended provides no objective indication of "right" & "wrong". It's nothing more than a barometer of your own emotional control.
Yesterday (10/6) while at Southlake Oktoberfest I walked over to the Barnes & Noble store. Quite a few people in the store. There were two guys at the Customer Service counter that didn't leave that counter or serve any customers the whole time I was in the store. I stupidly walked over to them when I was ready to check out. No, they don't do that particular customer service. I had to stand in line at the checkout counter. Seems like an opportunity for B&N to improve. Aren't they in financial trouble?

Having six umpires for postseason baseball games is a waste. The umps aren't used to that setup. In some ballparks, like Fenway, there is barely enough room down the lines for the extra bodies. Maybe we should have 15 or 20 officials for the Super Bowl.

  • Brutal but true - 

Odds of Jaguars upsetting Broncos this Sun. are greater than Keith Olbermann sending Bill O'Reilly Christmas card or Ted Cruz shutting up.
