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.

Yet another bit of evidence why college Football is repellent.   Their zealous fans.    I'm not saying that college football fans in general are repellent, but some of their zealous ones definitely are.  
The New York Times has been on a bit of a roll with its coverage on the preferential treatment afforded to members of Florida State University's much-heralded football team. Earlier this year, Walt Bogdanich wrote a lengthy piece on the school's flawed investigation of Jameis Winston, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback who was accused of sexual assault. Last month, Bogdanich teamed up with Mike McIntire to report on how Tallahassee police ha...

Has anyone else noticed that their Moto 360 has been slow this evening.  Mine is running about --- strange it was running about 6 minutes slow until just this moment.  It caught up suddenly.

Unfortunately the police seem less interested in protecting the public. FlorIda State seems to be under a lot of scrutiny right now, however I doubt that it is unique.

Deadspin: This Is How Tallahassee Police Protect Florida State Football Players. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwoPuTxR8
On October 5th at 2:30 a.m., a car driven by Florida State cornerback P.J. Williams turned across oncoming traffic and was struck. Williams and his two passengers—which included Ronald Darnby, FSU's other starting cornerback—fled the scene on foot. They later returned but Williams, who was driving with a suspended license, wasn't tested for alcohol. The police reports don't note whether Tallahassee police asked Williams whether he'd be drinking o...

The NCAA is in need of a player strike

I've always thought the NFL was a brutal business, but he NCAA makes the professional game look like paradise.
When I played basketball for UCLA, I learned the hard way how the NCAA's refusal to pay college athletes impacted our daily lives. Despite the hours I put in every day, practicing, learning plays, and traveling around the country to play games, and despite the millions of dollars our team ...

The student athletes at Northwestern University are attempting to unionize. It's something that's been a long time coming. It would be great if they suceeded.

The economics of NFL Megadeals. Why a $100 million contract isn't really a $100 contract.

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:
Nexus 7, Verizon Motorola Xoom LTE,  Verizon Galaxy Nexus and HP TouchPad
