Dear Lightning “fans”

I am thoroughly convinced that Florida deserves no major sports team. I mean, hell, if the point is just to make money and no have any real fans, then Las Vegas needs a few teams. At least there won’t be any pretense that anyone pays attention out of love for any game there.

Great news

Good things do happen:

A woman who was escorted off an Amtrak train by police last weekend after she allegedly refused to stop talking loudly on her cell-phone has the Internet cheering her fate.

Civilians and quiet-car champions are supporting her ejection for violating policy at high volume during the 16-hour journey. It doesn’t help her cause that she became belligerent when confronted about it by one of her fellow passengers.

KOMO News reports that Lakeysha Beard says she felt “disrespected” by the incident, though passengers said it was Beard who was being rude by refusing to stop yapping while sitting in one of the train’s designated quiet cars. She had not stopped talking since the train pulled out of Oakland, California, 16 hours before it reached Salem, Oregon, when a passenger confronted her about the talking. That’s when Beard got “aggressive,” KATU reports, and conductors stopped the train so that police could remove her and charge her with disorderly conduct.

This is great, but Lakeysha? Come on. I almost feel racist just posting this.

Don’t act like you weren’t thinking the same thing.

Thought of the day

My next big trip?

It is decided.
