Good to Know

So judges are apparently more prone to hand out more severe sentences and punishments if their preferred sports team suffers an upset loss.

If the relationship holds up, it would be interesting to see what kinds of sentences followed Cubs losses in Chicago. On the one hand, their numbers are voluminous. On the other hand, these are the Cubs. Losing is, much of the time, what they do and so it is difficult to think of it as an upset.

What about the shenanigans of a certain Wesleyan derived denomination? I know a couple of folks on either side of the divide within who could use a little atoning.

Maybe work on the "put the big rocks in the box first" principle ;-)

On the other hand, one of those candidates is a member of that denomination, so there could be some overlap...
