...I bought my husband a t-shirt with this comment. There's actually a bizarre story behind that purchase.

Two summers ago, my husband and I made a trip back to the family lake house in Indiana where we normally experience a peaceful, relaxing, and overall pretty unremarkable time. Not so with this particular trip.

Big Brown's loss overshadowed the winner...who was that anyway?...Oh yeah, Da' Tara. You wouldn't have known that by all the syndicated press photos...they were all of the horse who came in dead last!

Things are out of control! Now they are going to charge us for checked baggage....do you know what this means? I and millions of others are just going to try to cram more in our carry-ons and stuff them in spaces that are already insufficient! You just wait! They're going to start weighing people in addition to their baggage and charging us for anything over XX? Airlines are desperately trying to balance costs with revenue and they will stop at nothing!

Yep...engineers have been monitoring the tourist attraction and have assured all who care, that the tower's tilt is about where it was in 1700. The tower has a tilt of about 4 meters off the vertical.

...to go 180 miles per hour at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway! A Muncie, Indiana great-great-grandmother wore her checkered-flag blouse to the event and excitedly crawled into the Dallara/650 horsepower two-seater with driver Andy Luyendyk, Jr (2006 Indy 500 veteran and son to the two-time winner). The precious grandma was cashing in on a gift certificate her children had presented to her for an "Indy Racing Experience". Apparently she has been attending the Indy 500 races since 1965 and loves the excitement, speed, and especially the noise.
