Well, now we’re sick of the picture at the top of the blog. YF could have done a little better from that lot that we tipped him off to (yep, it was us that found the trove), we think, but instead he went with the shot that featured
his sweetheart someone who didn’t win the MVP. Shocker. So now we’ve taken the liberty of putting up a picture of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. In January. Yep, that’s right: it’s 70 degrees and the cherry blossoms are out. No joke. This was on the news this morning. (the picture is an archive shot of other trees, but does represent what the news was showing to some extent).
I’d normally take the opportunity to rant about how we ought to raise mileage requirements for cars, or increase research dollars for wind power, when stuff like this happens. But today I am inclined to ask Bud Selig and friends to just get everyone to Florida, RIGHT NOW. I see no reason why, in this age of 70-degree-January 6ths, we can’t just start baseball season early. We all need it. Bad.
