I'm a bit peeved that our culture has accepted the euphemism intelligence in place of the word spying. It's not that I think intelligence is an oxymoron. I just would prefer less doublespeak.



For the first time ever really, the Mariners begin a rebuilding phase. They should have done this last year. Use some of the high priced veterans they had to trade for prospects. I'd rather watch up andcoming young players fight for roster positions and lose games than older veterans decline from their glory seasons while losing.

I've got tickets for the games on Monday and Thursday.
