New sponsor

Many thanks to Bill "the Thrill" Blake for stepping up to the plate and sponsoring the U.S. Cellular Field and (soon to be updated) Comiskey Park pages. Bill previously contributed several photos which are shown on the former page. All the good cheer in Chicago from the White Sox World Series triumph is having a pleasant contagious effect!

Epstein to leave

It turns out Daniel Drezner was right after all: Theo Epstein did not come to terms with the Red Sox and will no longer serve as General Manager. Apparently the Boston Globe released a premature story saying that the deal was finalized. Epstein will stay in Boston for a brief transition period. As for playing in Boston for the 2006 season, Johnny Damon, David Wells, and Manny Ramirez are very much in doubt. See Red Sox Nation is stunned.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
