Fall classic

My house is finally fully wired to the world. On the television is the World Series game. On my lap is a computer hooked up to wireless internet.

I am ambivalent about the World Series. I have spent the past several years despising the White Sox, but they have gotten rid of all of their unbearably cocky players--players who claimed they were better than the Twins despite their poor record--and have gotten a manager who is a character, Ozzie Guillen.

The news

Although I don't subscribe to any newspapers and magazines, with the internet one doesn't need hard copies of the news to in order to keep up on with the world. Instead, I find myself reading commentary from newspapers around the world each morning.
