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.
Thursday, May 06, 2004 Four minute mile: Today is the 50th anniversary of Roger Bannister's feat as the first to run a mile in less than four minutes.
For the record: My best mile time was 7 minutes 48 seconds -- good enough for a D- in high school.
