An Open Letter on the NCAA Tournament

By Jason Kettinger | Mar 18, 2011 at 3:41 PM

Dear Selection Committee, you need to know that Michigan State, Clemson, Virginia Commonwealth, and Georgia don’t belong in the field. Right off the top. Also include Penn State and Illinois. Harvard, Colorado, and Virginia Tech do belong, but aren’t there. Include Missouri State, and St. Mary’s.

Last week I saw a station wagon pulling a little travel trailer and I shuddered. Here’s why. The word “vacation” had always meant a trip to see relatives in Indiana or Nebraska or Pennsylvania.

The mud across the road told me how lucky I’d been. It was last Tuesday and I needed to get to Columbus. It had rained a lot the day before, but somehow I had forgotten: it floods here when it rains a lot. Fortunately, the water had receded before I headed out. 267×400

By Dennis Powell | Feb 20, 2011 at 9:58 PM

The last week included major strategy announcements from two troubled cellular phone makers: Silicon Valley’s Hewlett-Packard and Finland’s Nokia.
