Got an image you'd like to see in here first thing in the morning? Send it to Subject: Morning crap.

Yay! Another Kenny Powers sighting, this one courtesy reader Mike. Just to remind you: Kenny Powers is a fictional pitcher in a mildly popular cable TV program of which only six episodes have aired but which evidently moved some folks to such an extent that they purchased custom merchandise in his honor. This is a strange, modern phenomenon. I suppose the historical equivalent would've been if, back in the 1970s, people so adored Lou Grant that they went around wearing bear pelts.

Good morning. Why can't we smile just like we used to?
