This flu-like thing of mine is getting real old real fast. My left shoulder is really screwed up...raising my left arm causes throbbing pain. I'm still in a temperature range of about 98 degrees to 99.3 or so...normal to just a little above normal.

Another sad thing today...I knew that Ray Charles was on his way out, but it's sad he's gone for real. Anyone who saw Clint Eastwood's segment of Scorcese Presents: The Blues saw Brother Ray looking Eternity in the face.

I hope he gets a nice big sendoff. By rights, what should happen next is that "America The Beautiful" replace "The Star-Spangled Banner" as the US National Anthem, and Brother Ray's recording of it become the official recording. Of course, that will never happen.

Oh yeah, the Lakers played like crap tonight. If Detroit continues to play as hungry as they have been playing and the Lakers continue to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and be as much the chokemeisters as other LA teams seem to be, it will be Panic in LA and Party in Detroit. Of course, both LA and Detroit fans will probably celebrate the same way they have always celebrated...with a big fat riot. Note that when the Sparks win WNBA's championship, as they have done for every one that's been played save one, there are no riots.:P
