Happy Valentine's Day!!!

First, what brain surgeon in the Cubs organization decided to have pitchers and catchers report on Friday the 13th? Yeah, that's not a bad omen for a team that hasn't won the world series in 100 years and has been swept out of the playoffs the last two years. Good thinking folks.

This week they've delivered both the Yellow Book Lakeview and the Yellow Book Chicago. Truly, in this day and age, is there really a need for either of these? What a tremendous waste of paper. I'm not sure I even remember the last time I looked at one as opposed to using the internet. Do they even have a selling point for being listed in the Yellow Pages anymore? Maybe being in the printed publication is free if you are part of their internet service or something.

This story has it all. Unbelievable and tragic too. I heard about it on the radio while driving home from softball.

I will say that the yellow pages are great as extra booster seats when you have child guests. Other than that- believe it or not there is a portion of the population out there that is still not on the internet. Probably the same people that don't realize about the switch to HD TV.

Uh Joe - read Stef's comment - though I know your answer is to jihad everyone who isn't on the same technological page as you.

Other than using the book as a booster seat, it sounds like Stef is on the jihad page with me! Maybe not. I say get with the program and use the internet. Dumb-asses. They don't need to be wasting the paper.
