    Lowering the bar for the Hall of Fame

    As it’s been pointed out to you before don’t you acknowledge that Murray played in an era in which HR and offense was down? You judge a player against his peers.

    They can’t resign. We need them.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Why can't they just let the man do his job?

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    He's laying the groundwork so he can blame the Fed when it does crash. He always needs a bad guy to point to.

    Better Call Saul - Season 4

    I also want to say that Vince Gilligan is smarter than any of us and we won't figure out what he does. It's fun to speculate but he will make it good.

    Better Call Saul - Season 4

    I could see that kind of thing if we were earlier in the run but the fact we're this many seasons into tells me that won't happen. This show moves very slow. I like that. Also I see Kim as very integral and as we know at some point she's not around. That's like a big sword hanging over the series for me. Does she leave? Does she die? Get addicted and overdose? Get killed? She keeps Jimmy grounded and gives him a humane side. I see the Gus stuff as just window dressing. The real story was Jimmy and his brother and Jimmy and Kim. Mike is bonus material.

    Also odd that this comes out when it seemed like we're getting solid news on the real scandals. If you are Trump would you rather the news be about Russia and the NRA and all that.... or more sex with models?

    An east division team in town means crappy weather... sure seems that way doesn't it?

    Better Call Saul - Season 4

    I feel like I gotta catch up again to remember everything regarding Gus. Is that the first time we saw the big shot lady that Walt poisoned at the end of BB? Just hope they don't move too fast with this. If I had to pick a proper ending it would be to get him to the BB timeline or when he actually becomes Saul Goodman. I don't want a parallel storyline. In other words don't get to a point where we see him doing stuff during the BB days that don't actually involve Walt.

    Theory is that Trumpworld leaked this to the NY TImes in order to get ahead of it. The point of this isn't the affair. Not even his denial at the time. His base doesn't care if he lies. It's the payment. That breaks the rules. That's conspiracy.

    I don't know..... I use % as the wildcard.

    Chelios leaving Detroit

    there was that photo with him and I think Zumaya at a sorority party.... I also once saw him and Bobby Higginson get into a limo from Hockeytown

    It wasn't a complicated query..... I could have figured out in less time via google, which I've done. It's when you go from querying one value to multiple and having to switch from Like to In and what to do with the wildcards.....

    The Pet Peeve Thread

    I'm currently on a call with my IT group and our vendor's IT group diagnosing a problem. I"m just listening. They're arguing over how to write an SQL query. One guy is writing it and the vendors keep correcting his syntax, asking him to use theirs in the chat window. A 20 second process is taking 5 minutes because of pride.
