Got the word today that a gentleman named E. Gary Gygax passed away.
Most of you have likely never heard of him. He created a little game called Dungeons & Dragons, which has arguably changed gaming forever. I know it changed MY life. I was in high school at the time, and I met a gentleman in my karate class who invited me to CSUF to play with his gaming group. I met a bunch of folks that were my friends for several years. We played lots of role-playing and board games over those years, and I was allowed to be as creative and nuts as I wanted to be. I really came out of my shell back then, and it was all due to fictional characters on pieces of paper that I had created. For that, I'll always be grateful - to that group and to Gygax.
I'm sure that, now, he knows if God plays dice with the universe.
Is this the last day for Hillary? We'll know soon. The primary contests four states happen today; the big two are Texas and Ohio. If she wins either one, then she'll take it as a sign that she's destined to be
If she loses both, she still may not give up. She's worked for this her entire adult life - she's not going to go away easily.
Okay, this is taking the concept of being a good neighbor too far:
Investigators said Meloney Jackson borrowed a gun from a neighbor, entered the house in the 7000 block of John Rowe Street and shot Kevin Jackson.
Quote from FARK: "Hi, I'm your neighbor. Could I borrow a cup of sugar, two eggs, and a gun to kill my husband?"
Also from FARK: a seventeen-year-old failed while carjacking, so he took public transportation home...with the shotgun still in his lap. He was photographed with the shotgun on his lap, and subsequently arrested.
Obviously a future Darwin Award winner.
Okay, I have things to do. At least at work, I won't be bombarded with election news.
Be seeing you.
