Internet Explorer 7

Has anyone downloaded and installed Internet Explorer 7 yet? I downloaded mine last evening when I became aware that it was officially available. I spent the rest of the time configuring it and putting it through its paces.

So far I like it. I like the ability to subscribe to RSS feeds directly (similar to Firefox) and the new ClearType technology. Page text is much easier to read for my 50+ year-old eyes!

Coach who had autistic kid beaned imprisoned

As a parent of a child with Asperger's Syndrome, I'm very happy to see the judicial system punish these idiots.

I would love to throw a fastball at this guy's ear using the official Little League mound-to-home plate distance of 46 feet!

Cory Lidle

On my way home from work this afternoon, I heard the sad news that Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle was killed in the Manhattan plane crash. Since I've been home, all I've heard is how sad the situation is and how terrible it is for the family. This is all true, but I can't help but think that the outpouring from the media would be lessened if Lidle play for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays or any other team not located in New York. Apparently Major League Baseball was considering canceling this evening's playoff games.

Interesting how a player's "worth" and fame is related to where he plays.
