What an awesome game. BYU was absolutely dominant on both sides of the ball, a performance like I don't think we've seen in a long time from the Cougs.

This season, despite the earlier troubles, is one for the record books, seeing how John Beck, Curtis Brown, and other seniors finished their time at the Y.

Michael Barone has an interesting post about the death of Pinochet. Although he was a not a good man, having stolen millions from his people and been quite repressive in his policies, the outcome of his tenure may have been more positive than the Allende alternative.

Pinochet se va, nadie llora.

My title is "Pinochet leaves, no one cries." Augusto Pinochet is dead. One of the most notorious Latin American dictators, Pinochet deserves the criticism he has received. He will be villified in death, and the repression of his regime is a travesty.

As the dictators of old die off, I hope that Latin America forges ahead in another direction.

Son of SPOTD

Normally I post pictures of Joseph on my website, but since my sister-in-law Lillie is so good at putting up pictures of her daughter on her blog, I decided to include these here.

The marvelous photo at right demonstrates Joseph's fine table manners, as he devoured his fudgsicle with aplomb. It was a mess for the ages, but he had fun making it.

Joseph loves getting involved in the kitchen. He is preparing his famous rosemary & onion potatoes, and doing his best to keep his mommy from messing up the recipe.

Lacy's belly also makes an appearance, as she is more than halfway down the road to welcoming SPOTD-kid #2, this time of the female variety.

Finally, this picture is of Joseph and his little friend Sahara Eichelberger. They had a lot of fun watching the Gators win the SEC Championship, or rather, having a screaming contest while their parents watched the SEC Championship. I'm glad that he's not afraid to go after an older woman (she's 2).

Tony vs. Paul

This is a fantastic video made using stop motion. It must have taken these guys forever to make it, but it is awesome.

Just watch the clip.

You can't miss with a little Bel Biv Devoe. This song was huge when I was 10 years old. It seemed edgy then. Its quaint now.
