I have a tip for TV news stations: Don’t try to explain something by getting your information from the Internets. The Internets are 90% satire, 5% snarky and 5% porn. You just end up looking old, out of touch and an advertiser-fellating fear monger.

I buy them and I buy them. Even though I have plenty at home, unused, I still buy more.
My wife leaves me little notes (usually somewhere in the middle). Small things that make my day when I find them. Sometimes it takes me a while to find them, but when I do it never fails to touch me.
