Re: iCloud Sprang a Leak

I think the take away is: the cloud is a very unstable place and should not be trusted
with sensitive information.

Re: All-Star voting

I think they should take the vote away from the manager when he wants to place one of his own players in place of another.

Casey McGehee is more deserving than Carpenter does at 3b.
