That's a big old tree in our yard. Literally in our yard. So sad.
UPDATE: Ah, make that a mulberry tree, which would explain the berries.
Love, of course.
Not just for the new Chevy Aveo he could win, but for Rocky.
The heavy rains took down the tree that stood sentry by the White House since the days of Andrew Johnson.
We take no joy in Rush Limbaugh's detainment at Palm Beach International Airport yesterday, or the discovery that he was packing a vial of Viagra, because our mother taught us to never make light of another's infirmities.
But can we at least share some of the better headlines we've read about it this morning in the blogosphere?
Keeping It Up (Billmon)
Remember the embarrassment of riches that Archmere Academy found itself with, having accepting a million dollars to slap the soiled Capano name over the Delaware private school's student life center?
The school's board of directors met last night and decided to find "the appropriate means of recognizing, in some other way," Louis Capano Jr.'s gift in honor of his parents.
Ok, they battled back from 6 - 0 and touched Papelbon before rolling over in extra innings. But by dropping three to the Red Sox, the Phils have lost their fifth series in a row. They're a fin below .500. Their ace has control problems. Their bullpen leaks. Their manager seems to spend the whole game with his head in his hand. Blame's traveling around the horn. How about we start with Philadelphians?
That's the view of The Phanatic, a season-old blog by a Philly sportswriter named John McMullen. Blame the whole city.
McMullen, a staffer for Football.com, starts off his post by ripping former Phillie pitcher Todd Jones for ripping Philadelphia fans in the current Sporting News.
Team spokesman Blade Woggs explains the new look to Phreaking Philly.
