Flop: Flag while you can

'Flappy Bird' to be removed from app stores, developer tweets »Call it the death of flappy bird.. For weeks now, Facebook and Twitter posts have been inundated with text about Flappy Bird. People lamenting their latest death, those excelling and celebrating their success at the 1980s style phone game.. But now millions who have been struggling will be finding no more help from the flappy bird maker.. In some bit of irony, as I type this post, my son is actually using his mother’s iPad to play Flappy Bird.
He is not doing very good ..

Bankers bailing out: Anyone getting creeped out yet?

There have been lots of banker suicides lately..
And news today now of another one: Richard Talley, founder of American Title Services in Centennial, commits suicide by shooting himself with a nail gun..

Odd tales lately of bankers jumping off of London bridges ..
I believe that Talley makes number five in the suicide count in just the last few days..

But it's still very cold.. And perhaps that is why the timing of a New York TIMES article describing the 'end of snow' is coming at such a strange time.. The New York TIMES, though, also gave WOODY ALLEN a lot of space today to defend himself against some crude sexual allegations leveled at him from his step daughter..
