That's a basketball he's holding!

There's a new minor league basketball player from China who's 7'9" tall--the tallest in the history of professional basketball. I can't get over the size of his hands.

New Blogger

I have converted this blog to the new Blogger system. So far, so good. The only problem I've seen so far is that the top of "caprice's glob" is cut off. (EDIT: I figured out a way to get around that problem.)

The only big new feature, as far as I can see, is that I can now classify my posts. This one is going under "my glob."

A year ago I pronounced the headline "Oklahoman Crowned Miss America in Vegas" my Yawn of the Day. Today's yawn news story: Oklahoman Wins Miss America Crown.
