Once upon a time, long long ago, there were no participation medals. No honorable mentions. No made up ties. No winning because you just had fun. There were winners and losers. There was always a first place. And no sense of entitlement. Hard to believe, isn’t it? It might sound crazy, but this ...

If I could add up all the minutes I've spent waiting for the shuttle and use them over, I could probably take an extended vacation. I'd go someplace sunny and warm with clear blue tides and drinks served out of pineapples with colorful bendy straws. A place where the shuttle always arrives on time. If...
