In fact, the joint was packed and he gave up a table just as I arrived – Thanks Penn Jillette! He is apparently reading tonight at GCC – and/but here’s the wacky part – I just so happen to be hopping on a plane tomorrow heading out to a certain “sporting” event taking place in a theater that bears his name! (posts to come!) Wacky.

New around here?

Because I’m promoting a bit right now on Facebook (because the November Nine is Monday and Tuesday!!! so if there’s any time to start reading this, it’s NOW – you never know who might turn up in Vegas), I wanted to show any newcomers around. To wit:

Here are the first three posts of the blog, and another post called “This is a stupid game.”
