Oh yeah, one more thing: UNC still sucks, but they are the ACC champs. My only consolation is that the East bracket looks murderous, so the odds are stacked against them reaching San Antonio. If they make it this year, they will have earned it.

Me? Im busily emptying out my bookshelves, except for those items simply not available in electronic format. Im an early adapter, but I expect that within ten years the only people still reading everything on dead tree will be the hopelessly stubborn old fogies who babble on about things like the feel or the smell of a real book.
Guilty as charged. When I learned to read, a vast new world opened up for me to explore. I go anywhere, any when and be almost anyone, all while sitting comfortably in my favorite chair: I was there at the Alamo; I saw stars being born; and I took part in intergalatic civil wars, fighting methane breathing aliens. Holding the book was part of the experience for me.
And that hasn't changed. I love sitting with a book not, unlike Giles on Buffy, for the smell or touch alone, but rather because the tactile sensation is part of the reading experience for me. Have I ever read e-books? Sure, and I'll probably grab my own e-reader some day. But I think that that day might be delayed a bit. I have too many books that I love lying around. Too, too many books. So many books that I might have to add on to my house. Sigh. But I'll keep on aquiring more because it's just what I do.
Of what do I speak? This post. Bask in the sublime idiocy and arrogance wrapped in its cocoon of blissful ignorance.
It would be wrong of me not to note that Tim F. has the post listed under several categories, one of which is General Stupidity. While I find that category accurate, I suspect that I do so for entirely different reasons than Tim.

In completely unrelated news, Duke and Carolina square off next weekend for what will likely be the #1 seed in the ACC tournament. VCU won its regular season title again and now heads to the CAA tourney needing, most likely, the tournament title to receive an NCAA bid. Right now, people are projecting VCU as an 8 or 9 seed, which puts them on track to face off against a #1 in the second round. Again. Guess who might be waiting for a rematch? Yeah, there's a better than average chance that Duke might receive a #1 this year. I'll bet that the team is itching for another shot at VCU. Then again, this VCU team might be better than last year's, so it would be a very interesting game.
In case you haven't figured it out, I love college basketball. March Madness is my favorite sports event of the year. I can hardly wait.
