Oh New Zealand... *facepalm*

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-46234545
High School students in New Zealand who didn't know what the word "trivial" meant in an exam question have demanded not to be marked down as a result.
...
The students were asked to write an essay based on the Julius Caesar quote: "In war, events of importance are the result of trivial causes."

Just because I don't like this thread on page 2:

Is Rex Parker the crossword blogger related to Hammer?

...A doc about Lena HORNE? I don't associate "Stormy Weather" with her, so no luck there...

Getting it back on page 1.

Really AZ? You trade Goldschmidt to the Cardinals of all teams? You couldn't have sent that blankin' pita to the AL? At least he's out of the NL West to cut down on the 19 games of opposition a season. Still, anything that makes STL better is a whole lotta bad news.

Certain other boardies with specific avatars will have a different opinion of course.

I'm pretty excited about the deal. Luke Weaver (RHP) seemed to regress a bit in 2018. Carson Kelly (C) looked really promising in the minors but, at the MLB level, he had major problems hitting and it seemed to affect his defense. He might do better with some honest-to-goodness playing time, and Weaver is talented enough to get things figured out, but the Cardinals have the depth to replace both of them. I don't know anything about Andy Young, and the Cardinals will get a draft pick back if they can't extend Goldschmidt.

I'm not sure the Cardinals have had a legitimate "oh, crap" hitter since Pujols (you know what I mean: "Oh, crap--look who's coming up this inning!").

I'm just happy my team is keeping Eovaldi and Sale.
