The four horsemen are approaching 

Couple of things that have me concerned that the end is near.

1. The White Sox just won the World Series. Now, this alone isn't that troubling, but there could be a pattern forming here. Last season, Boston won for the first time in 86 years. This year, the White Sox win for the first time in 88 years. Next year, the Cubs are champs for the first time in 98 years?

Nah... Props to the White Sox. They lost one game in the entire post-season. That's impressive. This was probably the most exciting sweep ever. Every game came down to the final moments. The difference is that Chicago was able to execute in crunch situations and Houston choked miserably, stranding base-runner after base-runner after base-runner. Morgan Ensberg is one Astro in particular who had a horrible Series. Brad Lidge got tagged up, too. One Astro who can't have a finger pointed at him, though, is Brandon Bakke. That guy pitched a hell of a game last night before being pinch-hit for.

2. This Harriet Miers nonsense is over. Her nomination for Supreme Court: Withdrawn. Fantastic. Now, I know my satisfaction with this is unfortunately in line with the Christian right (very unfortunately), but the fact remains that since Miers' nomination, there have been widespread complaints about her lack of legal credentials, doubts about her ability and assertions of cronyism because of her longtime association with Bush. Why is this a sign of the Apocolypse? Well, for starters, it makes sense. How often in the last five years has this government done anything pragmatic? Exactly. Miers has never been a judge and never should even have been mentioned in the first place. Darth Croynism has been vanquished.

Okay, now I just need this day to be over so that I can get out of dodge.
