Creating a Valley medical school is -- pick your favorite words from the list -- a noble cause, needed, a commitment, bringing people together.

Okay folks, if you were a business person, and had $13,000 in your deposit bag from the week's sales, and needed to make a "pit-stop"-do you think you would leave the dough in the bathroom?...well, apparently there was a guy inroute to the bank that did just that...and, he didn't even think about it until approximately thirty minutes later, according to authorities!

Not every cafe will be featuring the product (called Starbucks Via) that will come in slender packets (oh, that will make it attractive!) and due out in March. Well, if you want more convenience, there it is, just pour the stuff in hot or cold water as you prefer, and it's ready to drink. When I think instant, I think, well, yuck!

One federal data guesstimate placed the hospital costs for each of the Suleman octuplets at $164,000. Or about $1.3 million for all eight high-risk kids. The actual numbers are usually confidential -- but this isn't about all the controversies attendant to their births and their futures.

This is by way of contrasting the octuplets with a dinosaur -- me.

While preparing this year's taxes, I stumbled across the bill for my birth -- hand-written (no computers back them) in a fountain pen. Best I know, it was an uncomplicated birth.
