The Lebacle: A Sport Icon’s Departure from Cleveland – Good or Bad?


Now, I’m sure you have read or heard of a zillion takes on “The Decision” (Apologizes for the late post). The story is fascinating. Ohio-born product. Freakish athlete. Plays for his hometown team. Scoring champion. All Star. Super star. Mega star. 2 Time MVP. Yadda Yadda Yadda. The national media has been fixated on this guy for years.

Time zooms by like sun in your eyes

Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun, so once when I was six, I did. At first the brightness was overwhelming, but I had seen that before.

Accessing Archives Ain’t Annoying

If you were doing a project on the history of medicine, try to Google the phrase “history of medicine.” You will find about 340,000,000 pages relating to that search.

Tattoos are a Shanda?

If I got a Star of David etched into my arm, I know my mom would kvetch because she believes that I wouldn’t be allowed to be buried in a Jewish cemetery. Even though she is incorrect since no textual evidence exists to back her claim, a Jewish prohibition on tattoos exists for maintaining a sense of holiness.
