--Read "Gilead." All of you. Seriously.
--I'm in a weird transition period, on a few fronts. If you could, pray that God will keep me balanced and aware of what's going on, so I can catch everything thrown at me.
--A great quote from my new read, "Cubs Nation," from legendary Chicago sportswriter Mike Royko:
"I always believed that being a Cub fan built strong character. It taught a person that if you try hard enough and long enough, you'll still lose. And that's the story of life."
It may not be the story of life, but it's clearly the story of this season. We're back below .500. Sad.
