Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/17/2005: One step closer....

The countdown clocks at the left are resolutely counting down to the various Important Dates leading up to the Holiest Holy Day of St. Louis's Civic Religion: the Cardinals' Home Opener. In addition to the near approach of the first Important Day (pitchers and catchers report to Jupiter), I noticed yesterday another Harbinger of the Approaching Baseball Season.

As you may or may not have heard, XM Satellite Radio last year came to an agreement with Bud "Your Milwaukee Used Car Dealer" Selig and the other Baseball Sachems, and is now the Official Satellite Radio Provider of Major League Baseball. You also may remember (from my mentioning it several times on this very page) that I am, myself, a subscriber to XM. While scrolling around the various channel selections yesterday, I noticed that XM finally got around to rearranging its channel alignment, moving a number of college sports channels a bit farther down the spectrum and reserving 16 channel slots for MLB. Basically, that amounts to one 24/7 talk station ("MLB Home Plate"), 14 MLB play-by-play channels, and one "MLB En Espanol" station.

It's getting closer.....
