Day By Day...Lord, I could go on all day about this sort of thing. The notion that one has to take a specific position in order to be certified by an organization is ridiculous. And the Weather Channel is a local business, by the way.

On the Four-Block front, Tom gives us his predictions for the Super Bowl based on who wins this weekend. What is this, Super Bowl XLIII? Shows how much I pay attention. The last one I cared about was XX, when the Bears were in it, and then only because of the "Super Bowl Shuffle". Looks like they might be in it again; who knows? Tom also shares his favorite condiments (I don't like any of this stuff) and shares his take on the four food groups.

And this, I thought, was really interesting, from the Grouchy Old Cripple: A map that shows each state's GDP in terms of what country in the world it's equivalent to. There's also a link to a map that shows how the next four largest economies compare to that of the United States. Shows how strong the US economy is, despite the best efforts of some in Congress...
