Wow. This is almost too good to be true. Glad to know in a city with it's own share of problems, there's an oasis of common sense. Bravo. Maybe this will start a trend nationwide.
The University of Chicago, one of America’s most prestigious and selective universities, is warning incoming students starting this fall not to expect safe spaces and a trigger-free existence during their four-year journey through academia.

Well, at least sonny didn't stab anyone. With a knife, anyway.

This is Comedy Central's president's comment on why this show was canceled:

"Unfortunately, it hasn't connected with our audience in ways that we need it to," Alterman tells The Hollywood Reporter, "both in the linear channel and in terms of multi-platform outlets and with shareable content and on social platforms as well."

Translation: The ratings sucked. They just sucked.
The late-night talk show will end its run Thursday, with Chris Hardwick's '@Midnight' serving as its temporary replacement.

I don't know about everyone else in here, but one of my beer rules has always been don't fruit the beer (thank you, Triple H). I don't want the taste of pineapple or blueberry getting in the way of my barley or hops.

Fruit's for snacking. Beer's for drinking.

I believe there has to be balance. Sometimes I prefer the purity standard in beer. Other times I like a refreshing ale . And on occasion other variance of ingredients.

Megyn Kelly dressed like this for the convention broadcast last night.

And the problem is...? Hell, had I known this, I wouldn't have bothered with the Yankee game.
The 45-year-old Fox News star has been busy covering the GOP Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, but it was last night's form-fitting dress that caused a stir with her audience.

You can say what you want about Fox News, but their women are pretty much all pretty nice.

I just heard a story on the local news about an area judge who's being investigated for allegedly making "racist" and "sexist" comments. Since it appears that everyone is being probed for something "racist" and "sexist", I need to ask: so what did he do, show up for work?

In the old days, these people would have been sideshow freaks at the local traveling carnival.
Now we have the Internet. Biggest carnival ever.

Gee, I wonder if this has even a little to do with Target's new "we-don't-care-which-bathroom-you-use" policy?
Target cut its fiscal-year profit outlook on Wednesday after quarterly sales fell more than expected due to lower demand for electronics and disappointing results in its grocery business. Shares of…

FYI, Walmart has an AMAZING app that lets you choose all the groceries you need (My wife just adds things to her app throughout the week as she thinks of it) then, pay for your groceries via the app, then drive to Walmart and someone BRINGS the stuff to your car! Our walmart even brings candy for our kids and are super nice! You NEVER have to get out of your car, or wait in line! Make switching from Target to Walmart VERY attractive.

I know it’s a heinous crime, but it was not my normal demeanor...

Right. Normally, you're just getting your entire freaking face tattooed.

Let this be a warning, ladies. Reject marriage proposals from full-face tattooed men. That's just a bad sign, OK?

Yeah, this is going stop gun violence.

Actually, it will just prove that Apple is run by a bunch of stupid turds. So that's a good thing, I guess.

We just returned from a wonderful week in the North Georgia mountains. We stayed in a wonderful cabin in Mineral Springs, spent time in Blur Ridge, Helen and other places. And a visit to the region isn't complete without a stop at the Cabbage Patch Kids Babyland Hospital. Amelia adopted a new baby named Amanda. Fun weeks should never end.

Your circles and my circles: If you circle me, I may circle you back. Or not. I choose my associates here with care. If you are a "real life" friend or family member, you're in (well, in most cases). But if I don't add you back (at least not immediately...I do have a life), don't be insulted. To quote Costanza, it's not you. It's me.

However...if you circle me, and I don't know you, and you allow me to see nothing in your profile, or if your stream is not in English, is an endless collection of stock travel photos, ads for your "business" or advice on physical fitness, SEO, sexual proclivities or cute photos/quotes/sayings/videos lifted from that other popular social site, please don't waste my time and yours.

I made an appointment for a Sunday morning with Mike. I wanted four Firestone Destination LE tires installed on my 2013 F-150. I had this tire on a previous vehicle and loved them. When I called on Friday, Mike said they would order the tires for Sunday. He also quoted me a price on an oil change (the truck takes 8 quarts and I use full synthetic oil), cheaper than paying for doing it myself and lower than all the oil change places. After the work, I also discovered that I got the tires for $9 cheaper EACH than the quoted price. How often does that ever happen? After the installation, I drove for a couple of days and noticed a little vibrating or bounce at highway speeds, most likely one of the new tires out of balance. I drove over on Friday morning just as they were opening and Scott got me in quickly with no appointment. Sure enough, the driver's front was a little off. The ride to work that day was nearly perfect, all the vibration gone. This is a busy place and making an appointment is strongly recommended. But once you get in, they give you great service. The prices are competitive with the local competition and they don't push to sell you anything you don't want. Highly recommended.

Called them this morning due to a leaking water heater. They had done a smaller job for us in March and did great work. I bought the heater at a local Lowe's, which wanted over $500 for a same-day install. Bryan from Herzer's arrived this afternoon and got the job done in under two hours for $240, including carting the old heater away. Great job, fast, high quality work. Melanie in their office is also great, very responsive with a quote and an estimate of the time for the work. I highly recommend Herzer's and would call them again for any plumbing work.

I contacted Duval Ford to inquire about a 2013 F-150 included in their on-line inventory listings. I arranged to visit the dealer last Friday evening for a test drive and met Malcolm Daigle. Turns out the fleet sales department had sold that specific truck earlier in the day. He offered to find one just like it at another dealer and have it delivered. But also showed me the identical vehicle with a V8 engine (vice the V6 I had originally budgeted for). I took it for a test drive. The mileage ratings were just a little less then the V6, and the truck was otherwise equipped exactly as I wanted, including the color. He worked out a price and it was incredible. I drove it home that night having spend $4000 less than I budgeted. They offered me financing, but never pressured me when I told them I had pre-arranged it. He also didn't "bait-and-switch" me with the bigger engine...Malcolm repeatedly insisted he could get precisely what I wanted. But the price was great, so this was a no-brainer. Malcolm prepared all the paperwork, had the truck detailed and even swapped my tag from my trade-in vehicle. Before I left, he sat in the truck with me and detailed all the features, even helping me get my smartphone connected to the Sync system for hands-free calls. The next day, he called me to make sure everything was good. The process was painless: no haggling, no pressure, a great offer, excellent personal service and a considerate follow-up. You can shop there without worry, and I urge you to work with Malcolm.

I visited Basics today, and it was my first outing to a range in many, many years. I was going to be shooting my Ruger GP-100 .357 Mag revolver for the first time since my wife's father gave it to me. After a brief check-in procedure and obtaining some targets, I went into the range area to get started. The place was very quiet for a late Saturday morning, so I practically had the range to myself. I met Norm, one of Basic's instructors, and we chatted as I prepped to begin my session. Norm was very helpful, and offered any advice if I needed it. I stayed just about an hour, going through about 70 rounds with the Ruger. Norm looked at my first two targets and critiqued my shooting, informing me that I was doing very well (which was a big relief for me). At one point, he came into the range area and invited me to try a Ruger SP-101 (a smaller, lighter revolver in the same caliber as my GP-100). The SP-101 had a laser sight, which made it fun to shoot. In addition to the great staff, Basics has a nice selection of guns, ammo and accessories. The range is well air conditioned (they do a great job of pulling smoke from the air as you shoot), extremely well lit and very clean. There's plenty of parking, too. In all, they made me feel welcome and comfortable, and that made for a great experience. Highly recommended.

Can't rate the place because it's closed. The site is right next to the build where my office is located. Just want to prevent people from actually coming here to eat.
