This has been a heavy week for this blog, with more than the norm for comments, and I’m grateful to the many of you who contribute to this blog by encouraging remarks and by your comments. I’m proud of this blog and of those who carry forward our conversations. Now, the good news: school ends next week and I’ll have more time for reading blogs and commenting elsewhere.

10. I’d like this as a cover on a book, but I haven’t written anything where it would fit. McCoy’s Photos.
It is May and the Cubs have already begun their June swoon. Looks like another long one, folks. What makes it tough is the insufferable White Sox fans (and Kerry Doyal bustin’ my chops.)
