Re: How do you handle these?

Well, as it turns out, I was grumpy from having been awakened from a nap, and having to climb a flight of stairs to get to the door.

Re: How much will $100 buy in your state? ....

I wonder how much more advertising time gets sold in a game.

Not a lot. We used to run 1:40 between innings - a :60, a :30, and a :10, with about 5 seconds to spare on either side. (The 7th inning stretch was longer, by :30.) I don't [more]

Re: Iron Dome

I'll be interested to see some after-the-fact reporting on this; I recall the breathless hype of the Patriot missile system during the Iraq war, which turned out to be mostly baloney with a side of cheese thrown in.
