Your regular reminder that porn companies and their online brethren all support and encourage child exploitation and violence against women. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/04/opinion/sunday/pornhub-rape-trafficking.html#click=https://t.co/iZtjXlb8vu That is a harrowing, dark read.

Every now and then you have to listen to some Bluegrass.

Bluegrass always puts me in a great mood. I had never heard any of his music...that's definitely going to change.

I believe the observatory at Keystone State Park is one of the least light polluted places in PA. Otherwise, what kangaroo said is pretty much correct. It's just a campground. That's interesting. I didn't know about this. Mingo state park is supposed to be good for stargazing as well. Both if these...

We usually sponsor an Angel Tree kid or family - not sure if this is up in PA or elsewhere, but it's kids with parents in prison. We always get our kids involved with choosing items off the list, just to show how lucky we are compared to some of our neighbors. Not sure how this will work this year,...

No flash, not particularly interesting, put you to sleep Presidencies. That's kind of premature. Were you following the news during Carter's presidency? Personally, more so than policy. And I wasn't alive for Carter's term. You had the Iran hostages and oil crisis, but I literally can't think of an...

Also, the failed Iran hostage rescue mission lead to the establishment of SEAL Team Six, and the ultimate reformation of the US special operations community in the structure we know today. So that's neat. Rogue Warrior! He just turned 80 a couple of weeks ago. I think I told you I met him back in 2...

I definitely fear for teams like the Altoona Curve. That franchise has been a boon for the city, and Blair County Ballpark, imo, is one of the finest experiences in the sport.

The minors in baseball reminds me a lot of the local short tracks in racing.

On a related note... We are sponsoring a few families from the area for Christmas this year. My wife and I were going through the bios we were sent. For example, "10 y.o. boy, loves wrestling action figures, asked for a WWE ring", etc. While I'm happy that we can help, reading these just absolutely ...

Agreed. The feature on Xfinity where you can spend 20 bucks to "buy" a digital movie is appallingly stupid to me. Do people actually do that?

It's hard to pick too many holes in the Steelers' résumé, but if there's one thing that stands out, it's the inefficiency of the Pittsburgh rushing attack. The Steelers rank 27th in the league in rush offense DVOA despite facing the easiest schedule of opposing defenses in football. James Conner & ...

Death talks are on a major uptick with my just-turned 6 year old. This week, she told my wife she didn't want to my wife to die before her. But, she observed, we probably don't want her to die before us either. So, maybe there's a way we can all die together, she said. She's about the age when I fi...
