New York Times Goes Double-Barreled on the Pro Pot Op-Eds

Just saying. "The N.F.L.’s Absurd Marijuana Policy" & "Obsolete Zero Tolerance on Pot." Funny how quick marginal positions can become mainstream when regular folks feel comfortable that they're not going to get marginalized for expressing them.

Very Excited About New Aphex Twin

Aphex Twin - minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]




This new track doesn't sound like anything we haven't heard from Aphex Twin before. I don't care.

My Fantasy Football Team Is Better Than Your Fantasy Football Team, Bro

I drafted in the 11th position of a 14 team league. The roster settings run as follows: QB, WR, WR, RB, TE, W/R/T, W/R/T, K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN. Only one RB required to start, so I went with a heavy WR strategy, drafting 4 WRs in the first 5 picks. A few injury risks here, but if Gronk pans out he could be a steal at the 46th pick. Despite not picking an RB until the 7th round, I feel OK about my options there. Again, I only need to start 1 RB; I'll just play match-ups, hope my rookies develop, and let the rest of my roster bail me out.
