Baseball season's here, so it's going to be a bit of a challenge to write as much as I used to.  I did catch this Worcester reference in Sunday's Globe.

I'm not a big fan of casinos or gambling, which functions as a regressive tax as much as it lures in high rollers. I find Troy Siebel's argument regarding entertainers and ticket prices very compelling. I imagine any casino will also draw customers away from bars and restaurants in whatever town our Legislature 'deems' casino worthy.

(This post brought to you by my phone, because Charter's internet service died mid-post. It's the second time in the past two weeks!)

This is yet another example of why Yvonne Abraham does a better job of discussing Central Mass issues than most local columnists. Seriously.

This week we had another Tiger column from Clive.

Oh, don't think I haven't noticed. If there's one thing this city needs, it's a metro columnist writing about some golfer and his genitals.

I avoid the Tiger story even more than I avoid golf. It's gossip, and none of my business. The only good thing to come out of the whole Tiger story? We were at the Boynton yesterday, and the Masters was playing in the background. They kept on cutting to shots of Phil Mickelson's wife, and my father wanted to know if she was one of Tiger's girlfriends.
