He's Back! He's Back! He's Back! He's Back!

Greg Maddux named special assistant to Chicago Cubs GM Jim Hendry

My beloved future Hall of Famer is returning to the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field! Welcome home, Professor. You are my all-time favorite Cub and summer hasn't been the same without you.

Damn, I miss baseball.


I had a doctor's appointment this evening and on the way home, I thought someone was following me too closely. In this weather, I can't tell you gender -- just that this person was wearing a jacket. I stopped and looked in a store window and the person passed me, but then, as I turned down the rather isolated side street leading to my home, the person somehow ended up behind me again.

I truly didn't know what to do. Fortunately a train pulled in and commuter after commuter got off and started walking up the street toward me. I got to the corner, looked around, and my new best friend was somehow gone.

Makes me kinda shiver. On the one hand, I'd rather be safe than sorry. On the other hand, who wants to be paranoid?


I find myself sinking in a sea of projects. I'm not complaining -- not after last week's not-so-positive meeting. It's good to be busy! I'm just explaining why I might not be posting so much today.
