Nothing scarier than firing up Google Reader and having '100+' show up as the number of unread items, especially when there's plenty to write about that I'm not getting 'fed' ...

The Blue Jackets won. They didn't just win, they shut out their opponent. They didn't just shut out an opponent, they did it on the road. They didn't just shut out a team on the road, they shut out the Avs in Denver. The CBJ has had one prior victory (in Overtime) against the Avalanche in the 22 game history of the matchup. I haven't been excited about the team since opening week, but I'm trying to work my schedule so that I can be at Nationwide on the 10th.

As long as I'm on sports, I think it is reprehensible what the poll voters did to Michigan's football team, and I think it was entirely appropriate for Tressel to abstain. I like ethics. Crazy old me.

I'm still surprised when anyone listens to my opinion, but I've gotten two comments recently that confirm that somebody does... The first was about my transportation opinions, from someone at the local news site Columbus Underground. I think they found me via my post on Woodland Meadows, which also attracted the notice of Jorge Newbery, the owner of that complex. He is telling his side of the story on his blog.

Stories that have my attention:

Mental Health Parity
Highway Caps
Transition Team

And obviously the recount in Ohio's 20th House District, which I'll provide updates on as I get/find them.
