Faulty Alarm, Fitting Nickname, Fight Club Wisdom

Did you see where the Secret Service took 13 months to fix the house alarm at former President George H.W. Bush’s Houston residence? Probably didn’t matter anyway since Bush is a Texan — or an adopted son of the Lone Star State — meaning he has a Texas alarm. Those come equipped with triggers.

And, speaking of Georges…

Sometimes I just can’t resist. So I had to ask Rays reliever Kevin Jepsen if he’d ever acquired the nickname “George.” Surprisingly, he had not. I also discovered he does not have a wife named Jane nor a dog named Astro.

Finally…

A pearl of Tyler Durden wisdom rediscovered from the movie Fight Club: “Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.”

Crazy movie, but hits the mark, doesn’t it?
