The day of vernal equinox is coming, yet it still feels darn cold. And, my own cold lingers. Blech.
The NCAA brackets are what they are. I picked too many Big East teams, and lo and behold, a bunch of Big East teams fell on Day 1 (I should’ve known better than to have picked Seton Hall and Syracuse, but was surprised about Marquette, but probably should’ve seen that Alabama was probably prime to be a good upset there). I also made the mistake of picking Indiana as one of my Final Four (more because I was hoping it’d be my upset pick to go all the way). The rest of my Final Four – Duke, UConn, and Villanova – are still in – so here’s hoping that my brackets won’t get entirely ripped up yet.
An article on the Baby Universe – curious stuff scientists are finding out about what happened just after Big Bang.

Can’t say that I disagree with him.
And, is there such a thing as a lawyer’s witness coaching going too far as to become witness tampering? Apparently, yes, says Slate Explainer.
