It's travel day. As our skeleton crew (hey, it is the Halloween season, after all) keep the homestead running, I'll be heading off to Chicago. There won't be anything posted here for a bit, but early this evening we'll be back up to speed. And given that "early this evening" in Chicago is "this afternoon" in Los Angeles, things shouldn't be too bad. In the meantime, feel free to amuse yourself.
In the meantime, here's a bit of classic Bob Newhart. Since it's the baseball playoffs right now, I thought it would be appropriate to have his sketch, "Nobody Will Ever Play Baseball," as a marketing executive takes a phone call from Abner Doubleday trying to sell his new game he invented, called baseball. This comes from his first album, that made him a phenomenon, The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart. He left his job in an accounting firm in Chicago and did pretty well for himself.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
