The Kansas City Royals are World Champions. 

From my Dad's eulogy which I read at his funeral on September 9th:

 "He loved baseball and nothing would give him greater pleasure than if the Kansas City Royals would win the World Series this year."

Salman Rushdie is one of my favorite authors. He is active on twitter and frequently interacts with his fans. Twice now he has responded to one of my tweets. This response was to a joke I made about Tolstoy's masterpiece Anna Karenina.

One Month

Today marks a month since my Dad passed away. A month. Pretty shocking how fast time goes. I still can't believe he's gone. The days have gotten better, but the nights still sting.

Dad, me and Uncle Joe, back in the day.
