Brrr. 39 degrees here this morning. Had to do a light scrape of the windshield. Maybe it’s time to start the winter beard.

The Pirates are in the playoffs!

Of course, MLB now has a one game wild card playoff, so they are only guaranteed one playoff game right now.

The Clairton Bears lost a football game Friday night. Which is remarkable because they last lost on the first week of the season in 2009.

Their 66 game winning streak is a state record and was the nation’s longest active streak. That’s 4 state titles and 5 WPIAL titles in a row.

I haven’t poked my nose out yet, but my local weather report says that it is 50 degrees ouside with a “real feel” of 46. It also says that it is dense fog, but it looks sunny to me. Debating about mowing the grass. Could be the last time for the season.

Since Everest is the highest mountain, it’s topological that Hillary was named after its first climber 10 months before he climbed it!

It’s disgusting that the public, is so used to rank dishonesty, that a story like that didn’t disqualify one for office.

Especially in the age of Google.

In today’s press corpse, if you support abortion, you can do no wrong.

The Pirates are in the playoffs!

That brings the nagging question to mind ... If a Sister Sledge wed MC, what would her name be??

Not trying to be toploftical but I want to wish a happy Sukkot to our Jewish classmates this week.

I don't care who you are, that is funny. Did you see the brawl this weekend?
That escalated quickly.

Can anybody explain to me the strategy involved in demanding that the Senate not vote on the defunding bill that we all insisted that the House pass?

What is the plan there other than to make the GOP look even more foolish?

There is an inconceivable strategery involved. I will try and find the article.

It’s ironic that the most toploftical bloggers on the Lib sites are probably still residing in their parents’ basements…
