It's not just me.

Gone East comments regular Beth H, from Southern New Hampshire, reported via email:

...we now have about 2 inches of wretched, freaking snow again.

Hey, It's still winter. Gimme a break, you expected Southern California here in the Northeast Bloc?

And yet it was unseasonably 80F in San Francisco yesterday.

Ahh. Another old Calif (and Boston) friend checking in to torment me.

Welcome Alex. You and Sherm are gonna get along famously. Don't you think so Rick?

If all it took was a desire to torment Hodgson in order for me to get along famously with someone, then I must be best buds with a lot of people.

Jack you have some mean friends out there in California.

Everyone gets along with Sherm. He's just a big teddy bear!

It's not the size of the bear in the fight. It's the size of the fight in the bear.

Go Bears!

Speaking of the Bears.

I hear that Stanford Basketball isn't doing too well this year. What is their W-L record Sherm?

Hey, cool, it's Alex!

Regarding those bears... Sherm: do you ever see William Hung on campus? "She Bang! She Bang!"

I know, I know, that was a pathetic segue, but whatever; it's just too hot out here to think. I'm kidding, I'm just kidding!

Speaking of California: What's up with wanting to count 14 year olds as a quarter of a person? I mean, statistically if 18 is the age of consent, 14 should be at least 3/4ths of a vote not 1/4 vote?

Ah, so much to respond to.

Standford BBall---it's a cognitive therapy deal -- do you see the glass as half full or half empty. You see a 204-1 record. I see them being allowed to win every game of the season so that the final crash when they lost that last game and lost their #1 ranking -- that the pain would be so much more intense and hurtful. I think this just continues to prove that God is a Golden Bear and doesn't wear red.

Teenagers and prportions? Ah, who knows? I've always said "Old enough to set the table, old enough to eat." I don't know what it means, but it sounds offensive, and I can get into being offesnsive, in case you haven't noticed.

William Hung? Yeah, seen him, laughed at him, bought the tshirt. His 15 minutes are sooooo up, and of course, he will keep hanging around until he loses all charm he once had.
