It will be a good match-up we hope...Cardinal's wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (6-foot-3-inch) and Pittsburgh's safety Troy Polamalu (5-foot-10-inch-I love his hair by the by) will undoubtedly collide on may occassions, and the event will be viewed by millions...

An 87-year-old relative enjoyed the holidays, rejuvenated after a heart procedure. A 90-year-old relative made plane reservations to San Diego, had gastric surgery, didn't make it.

Medical judgment, personal choice, health care economics, faith, hope, ethics, co-morbidities, quality of life. Lots of issues on the table as lots of us hurtle -- if we're lucky/blessed -- toward older age.

When is too old for surgery? My family, my older in-laws, considered that in recent months. So did Sacramento Bee reporter Sam McManis in a recent story.

Never seen the TV series, "Lost." But understand it's had a complicated plot line over four seasons in which time travel has now been written in tales of the desert-island survivors of a jetliner crash.

Must make for one heckuva flow chart to keep track of story lines. Same is true in the bizarro world of California politics and budget whacking/worrying. Yes, we certainly seem to be headed -- backward.

Turn off the heat and air conditioning. Limit bathroom breaks. Feed 'em bread and water. No budget deal, no salary. California legislators are like demented doctors whose idea of "pain management" is allowing the patient to pass out from pain.

Those are a few comments rattling around the blogosphere with respect to the $40 billion-plus California deficit. If you're a glutton for punishment, go to the LA Times and SacBee online newsrooms.
