Not to be outdone by Vice President Cheney’s “contract rider” specifying how his travel lodgings are to be prepared, medieval poet Geoffrey Chaucer offers us kynge richardes rydere! And, being a king, Richard apparently is not shy about making his wants and needs known: “ITEM. yn the hal shall be sette the biggeste damne throne that yow kan fynde.”

I’ve no formal training in psychology, but I understand that this can be considered a symptom of psychosis.
Also: What else are the nonexistent people telling him? Inquiring, and worried, minds want to know.
(I went to bed midway through the first half with a raging migraine, and it probably was best for all concerned that I did.)
Meanwhile, over at the Stinging Nettle, DrFrankLives has a nice appreciation of both my Davidson Wildcats’ effort against Ohio State and the larger significance of schools like Davidson’s getting into the NCAAs.

If you’re the parent of a son, you need to read this. And when Hooper gets old enough to understand these points, I’m fortunate that I won’t have to reach outside our family to find an illustrative example for him.

(OK, technically Davidson did go in 2002, but work with me here.)
UPDATE: Over at The Stinging Nettle, DrFrankLives reminds us of some important history: “Last time we played them [Ohio State, Davidson's first-round opponent this week], they used an ineligible player (for whom they have just now been sanctioned). We lost by 5 points. Guess who scored five points.
“So, by all rights, WE should have represented the Albuquerque Regional in the 2002 Final Four.”

And so she did. She describes it as a girl trying to pull a sheath dress off over her head and getting it stuck just over her nose and under her eyes.
