Lions Draft

I had said earlier that I would post my mock draft. I got about half way through it when I realized that I wouldn't have time to finish it, so I dumped it. No biggie.

So let's talk about the Lions 3 picks yesterday. I think they did well in terms of grabbing top talent. All three picks were for guys that just flat out know how to play. What a failed to see was the grab for an offensive line giant. Also ESPN coverage only lasts till 5:00 so we lost the last hour and half of the first round. Of course 5 hours of coverage should be able to handle the first round. Very sad. Next year, you only get 10 minutes and if you want more you need to fill our a 7735 Form B for an extra 5 minutes.

So why haven't I been doing much updating. Well there was my second trip to florida and which was preceded by some massive gastro-intestinal problems that put me out of commission for a week, including a nice visit to the local hospital. Otherwise I really have no excuse for a lost month.

Heinlein's Mars may come to pass

Now I am not by any means a Heinlein expert. But I remember reading a book where he talks that the inhabitants of Mars had died out (?) before we had arrived on the planet. It looks like there is some biological activity on Mars and that alot of the methane must have been produced by decomposing material. In general just interesting.
