What did I miss?

Back from vacation but not quite ready to return to the full-on routine. Need zonk time in front of the tube before getting back into worker bee mode or even attempting an ambitious blog post*, so just want to stake a few flags that I may (or may not) circle back to discuss at greater length. Turns out the world didn't stop doing things while I was out in the woods.

Photo taken by Armstrong, but you can see him if you look closely.

RIP Neil Armstrong, David Atkins and George Lazenby had thoughts I found myself nodding along with.

Suddenly, there's seems to be a lot of buzzing in atheist circles about an apparent re-branding of secular humanism as Atheism+. Which, OK fine, I guess? But why exactly?

Another nutter found a place to start shooting at people for no good reason. I thought I heard something happened in Chicago, too, but it was clarified for me that it wasn't one mass murderer there. Just the usual assortment of fatal, closer to one-at-a-time shootings which we should just ignore because, hey, par for the course.

Driving home today, was behind a truck with a bumper sticker that read, "I'd rather be Judged by 12 than carried by 6," next to a another sticker for a gun store. The capital "Judged" made no sense to me (either), but Judges is a book in the Bible, so maybe mental defectives always have to capitalize any form of the word "judge"?  Anyways, dude, you were judged today, and the verdict was You Are A Dangerous Idiot.

And, finally, the Red Sox blockbustered Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, and Carl Crawford to Los Angeles, making this season's implosion official. Here's hoping Ben Cherington can assemble a team to compete sooner than later. Meanwhile, Second half investment in the MLB package through my cable company feels a bit like an albatross now.

* I hear you, smart-ass, quipping, "Why start now?"
