    Craigslist Scamming

    I would avoid Craigslist all together unless you can physically make the money for tickets exchange. Any time Western Union (or any wire service) is requested it is a scam. The Minneapolis Craigslist appears to be mostly scammers. I copied/pasted one of the scams that is still up.

    Scheels Purchases Naming Rights of UP

    You mean the Gate City Bank Theatre. The hip thing to do is to keep the building name but sell the naming rights for what's inside i.e. Mall of America Field at the Metrodome.

    SIOUX vs U OF. MANITOBA

    St. Cloud beat Manitoba 7-4, but was outshot by the Bisons. It was 4-4 in the 3rd.

    Josh Duhamel's new movie

    He grew up in Minot. His mom was a teacher at Minot high. He owns (or co-owns) 10 North Main in downtown Minot.

    former players

    Chris Porter had an assist for the Blues against the Wild last night. Oshie was not in the lineup. VandeVelde added an assist - his line scored all three goals.

    EPA Drafting New Dust Regulations for Farms

    In its response (pdf) to a host of legal challenges brought against the Bush administration's 2006 standards for airborne soot and dust, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia refused to exempt the regulation of farm dust. The EPA has been regulating "dust" for a number of years, so the media story is a bit sensational (like they all seem to be). However, the EPA did recently toughen its standards significantly. The NY Times article is equally misleading. The EPA was regulating soot and dust long before 2006. 2006 was simply the most recent change to the government guidelines. My favorite dystopian writing is Harrison Bergeron - a Vonnegut short. I will wait for the US to get a Handicapper General before I ask for the check. Sadly this country appears to be going down this path.

    EPA Drafting New Dust Regulations for Farms

    There has already been some action in Congress. Letter to EPA They already regulate breathing (carbon dioxide). Why not regulate dust? George Orwell is looking more like a prophet than a sci-fi writer.

    Janet Napolitano to give Commencement Address

    While I disagree with most of her politics, it is good for UND to have a high profile speaker. Napolitano is on the short list for Justice Stevens US Supreme Court seat, which while scary is not any scarier than having a 90+ year old Stevens on the bench. While in GF she can get a good look at all of the crime coming from the Canadian border In April 2009 Napolitano, trying to defend her plans to thicken US-Canadian border security, claimed incorrectly that September 11 attack perpetrators entered the United States from Canada. Her comments provoked an angry response from the Canadian ambassador, media, and public. In response to criticism, she later said, "Nonetheless, to the extent that terrorists have come into our country or suspected or known terrorists have entered our country across a border, it's been across the Canadian border. There are real issues there".

    NCAA Bracket Challenge

    Michigan tore up the CCHA tourney and Ft. Wayne is a lot closer to Ann Arbor than Bemidji. I would like to see them win, but do not find it likely. My picks: Wisconsin to beat Vermont Northern Michigan to beat St. Cloud -= this is the most surprising, how can anyone pick St. Cloud? Wisconsin to win West in the easiest bracket IMO. Denver to beat RIT. Cornell to beat UNH. Denver to win East. - Another relatively easy bracket for Denver. Even with their bad play they should easily beat RIT and Cornell. The Sioux kept Cornell to around 15 shots both times they played. A hot goalie is Cornell's only chance. BC to beat Nanooks. UND to beat Yale. UND to win Northeast. - A homer pick, but UND is obviously playing well. My head says to pick BC, but I am going with the heart. Miami to beat UAH. Michigan to beat Bemidji. Michigan to win Midwest. - Tradition, experience and a hot team win. In the Frozen 4: UND to beat Michigan Wisconsin to beat Denver. UND to win #8 and we here whining about three WCHA teams in the frozen four for the next 12 months from the rest of the country.

    TV Coverage of NCAA Regionals

    I pressed "3". The lady I spoke to also sounded a little dumb and high, but everyone with a southern accent sounds a little dumb and high to me* That was a joke for all the southern Sioux fans

    TV Coverage of NCAA Regionals

    I called ESPN and was told there is no way the game will be on live except through ESPN360. I doubt the lady I spoke to had much of a clue. She said I was the first call she had heard of about NCAA hockey.

    TV Coverage of NCAA Regionals

    That refreshes things. They ended up breaking to the Sioux game for this in the midwest. During period brakes they would go back to the longest lacrosse game in NCAA history. This is not an exaggeration it was literally the longest in history.

    I believe last year it was on ESPN 2 just in this part of the country. Not sure if my memory is right?
