The Day The Wheels Came Off the Sooner Schooner

Posted by Mark on October 8, 2005

Ouch. No easy way around this one:

DALLAS (AP) — Vince Young and the Texas Longhorns are headed home from the State Fair with the prize that’s eluded them for five years: A victory over Oklahoma.

Showing the poise and leadership he’s developed since a miserable performance against the Sooners last year, Young threw for three touchdowns in guiding No. 2 Texas to a 45-12 victory Saturday.

Ah well, there’s always the White Sox. Sigh.

The Coming Pandemic

Posted by Mark on October 8, 2005

Last month I posted on the coming flu pandemic, and the eery links to the Spanish flu of 1918. It’s good to see the Bush Administration is taking this seriously. In spite of our technology, we are no better prepared for the Bird flu mutation now than we were at the turn of the last century. In fact, thanks to our technology the spread could be faster, and more deadly. Considering the Spanish influenza killed 100 million worldwide, that’s frightening indeed.
