Big weekend on the family front: Jill and I went to Pittsburgh for the second weekend in a row to see Emma perform in her first show at Point Park. She was wonderful, as was the number.
And on the way home, we got some even bigger news: Nicholas and his life partner, Conner, are engaged! In many respects, you could tell this was a matter of when, not if, from the beginning. We love them both so much and could not be happier.

Crush of cans — Sweeny, Texas, September 2017
Another memorable Washington Nationals season is over, with controversy and some of the lousiest officiating I’ve seen in some time. No question, the team’s utter failure to pitch through adversity played a role, as did 14 stranded runners, in the heartbreaking 9-8 loss. But the home plate umpire must have left his contacts in the case back at the hotel.
Generally I don’t complain about this sort of thing, but it speaks volumes when the best part of the late innings was the umpire getting hit in the face by a passed ball.
I don’t live tweet or post very often, but the bottom of the fifth inning was such a colossal muck-up (four runs, errors, passed ball, ack) that I did send these three missives to the web:
• I haven’t seen an implosion like that since the last time Trump was on Twitter.
• The curse: It’s not like they traded Babe Ruth, ‘fer chrissakes.
• When the scoreboard screams LOUDER and all you hear are crickets.

Today’s politically correct word: Duck. For those times when you are asked your opinion on something and can’t decide between the S and the F on the keyboard.
• What do you think? Well, duck.
• How’s life? Just ducky.
• How’s your team playing? They’re ducking.
See, it works!

Charlottesville, Harvey, Irma, Maria, North Korea, NFL, Las Vegas: How many more things have to happen before we can unite as a country?
And yet, we seem further from intelligent discourse than ever. All you have to do is look at the most recent incident in this two month news cycle nightmare.
Talking about possible, reasonable gun control measures should not be verboten in the wake of what happened in Las Vegas. It's an intelligent, next step outcome that recognizes the tragedy of a madman's actions and access to an arsenal.
Or, to put it in more heartbreaking terms, all you have to do is read this post I copied from a young friend:
"I've lived through through three different events all with the same headline, 'Deadliest Shooting in American History.' I'm 16 years old."
What a beautiful tribute to Tom Petty...
