A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Wednesday, July 24, 2002 Know who you're sitting next to: A friend of mine told me last night about an encounter his wife had a couple of weeks ago while flying back to San Diego from Chicago.
Wife (reading sports page of newspaper): I can't believe the Padres are 19 games out of first place!
Man seated next to her: Easy. Just settle down.
Wife: I'm a fan. But I can't believe that they're this bad.
