A lot of people cling to these myths. The Civil War was about slavery. All you need to look it are the ordinances of secession. 
One hundred fifty years after the Civil War began, we’re still fighting over its meaning.

Thank you for the invite.  I've been a Seattle baseball fan since forever.  From the old Seattle Rainiers in the old PCL, then the Angels, Pilots (one year) and now the Mariners.

I first heard him on a duet album with Oscar Peterson in the late 70s. I think he was about 18 then. He's from Oakland and I've seen him perform at Yoshi's.

Joe Pass as technically proficient and melodic as ever. Great piece.

On February 15, 1965, Nat ‘King’ Cole died at the age of just 45, and one of the greatest singers of the 20th century was silenced.

This is pretty extraordinary. If the Cardinals actually did this someone could be facing some serious jail time.
The Cardinals have been alleged to be hacking into the Astros internal database and the FBI seems to believe it's to target former Cardinals employee and current Astros GM Jeff Luhnow.

The first time heard Monk 40 years ago I found his style odd, now I'm amused and delighted. In my defense i was a teenager 40 years ago.

+Veronica Holmes​ I was 16 years old 40 years ago. ☺ Jazz is indeed personal. I started liking Monk when I was 17. It took me about a year. In contrast I liked Dizzy and Bird immediately.

This thing started showing up in the Bart parking lot. For some reason it's not comforting.

Regarding it possibly falling over, note that they promote the fact that it sports a device for reading wind velocity. I'd love to know the rating. (Also find myself wondering what a bike lock snapped into the right place on the mechanism might do to prevent its scheduled descent at end of shift.)

Story
Introduction
Bats Right, Throws Left.  

I tend to post about antitrust, science fiction, technology, android and android phones, science and politics.    

I am an antitrust attorney on the government side.

I am a devoted and long term Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Mariners fan. Yes I'm a Masochist.  The NBA is dead to me (after the departure of the Sonics).

My interest include Jazz (from swing to post bebop and cool school).  Coltrane, Rollins, Gillespie, Bird, McCoy Tyner and Wayne Shorter are among my favorites.  However, I've learned to appreciate music of all types as I get older. 
 
Politically, definitely left of what is now considered to be the center of this country.  In earlier times I would have been called a slightly left of center democrat.

I have a long time love affair with gadgets and technology.  I find platform wars interesting, starting with the battle between OS/2 and Windows, to the current hot platform war between IOS and Android.  I'm definitely in the Android camp.  

Key Devices:
