Unpopular Thoughts

Yes, that's Trebek.  He's doing his Mick Jagger impersonation.  See what I mean?

I prefer German to Italian opera.

An observation for small businesses: When your sign says that you open at 8:30am, that means you're open and ready for business at 8:30am.  That's not the time you arrive for work.  At 8:30am, the door should be open, the lights on, and the cash register ready with change.

Traffic circles cause bad drivers to self-identify.

Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A." is not a great 4th of July song; it's about an American bitter in the aftermath of the Vietnam War.  Seriously, look at the lyrics sometime.  It's actually grim and horrible.  Celebrate "America the Beautiful" instead.  The third verse addresses our imperfections in a way that is hopeful and true.

I still find Alex Trebek obtuse.
