Dear Brad: Am I an Obamacare Douche?
Since the election, I have been deluged by a flood of letters and emails from business owners. (NOTE: The preceding is a lie. But go with it.) Many of these business owners are concerned, because now that Obama has been reelected, Obamacare looks like it will become the law of the land, and that means work and/or expenditures by said business owners to comply with the law. Many of these people are...

Yeah Cubs! We may be the worst team in the league, but at least we can sweep the SECOND-WORST team in the league. (Oh, that SAA12 game is going to be painful to watch.)

I wish I were as good at designing games as you were at complaining about them.– Zac Hill, apparent Blue Player public enemy #1, to Zvi Mowshowitz’s catty remark about Cavern of Souls. (Which, by the way, is fine, the sky is not falling. Even if it were, give it a set, Blue in standard is like a bad penny.)
