Open Thread – 2/8/2010

Yesterday I caught up on comments early and planned to visit blogs before the Super Bowl, until blindsided by the news of the death of a very close friend.  I hope to do better today.

The Saints beat the Colts 31-17.  The game was much closer that the score makes it appear.  It was an excellent game which I enjoyed as much as possible under the circumstances.  The New Orleans fans may stop celebrating in time for Mardi Gras, but I doubt it.  I’m pleased with the outcome.  That city had needed a break ever since Bush and the GOP, through their gross negligence, stood by while the city drowned.

Today’s Jig Zone puzzle took me 4:05.  To do it, Click Here.  How did you do?

Here’s your cartoon:

So sorry to hear of the death of your friend. If you need to talk to someone, pm me and I'd be glad to talk with you about. I haven't (luckily) lost a close friend in a while, but I remember that pain.

Thanks Lisa. I'm handling it. Honoring him was the best way I could deal with the grief, and I do believe that I shall see him again.
