I am a big fan of the Amazon Kindle. Until now there wasn’t another reader that looked remotely interesting. The iPad does plenty of cool stuff but isn’t a very good reader.

Pacific Northwest teams establish a new low in futility! The two major college teams (Huskies and Cougars) were shut -out on Saturday. Huskies lost to Stanford 41-0 while the Cougars lost to Arizona State 42-0. Sub-total: 83-0. Add in the Seahawks loss to Oakland (33-3) and you’re up to 113-3. Finally, the Sounders lost to the LA Galaxy in soccer 1-0 for a final weekend sports roundup of 114-3. Four teams, two days, three points! At least we have the Mariners to look forward to!
