I gotta admit, I wouldn't buy them for my 8-year-old nephew.

Jimmy John's: Even worse than we've been hearing.

Uproariously funny screed about the popular sandwich place. Those "restrictive covenants" we've been hearing about in their employment agreements are only the beginning. Time to boycott.

And a huge brickbat to "Law & Order SVU."

Fin just shot a guy in the shoulder and told him it was a flesh wound. Really? There is no such thing as a flesh wound right by the collarbone or anywhere else. This is where people get this ridiculous idea.

Considering going to Mass tomorrow,

Instead of the Methodist church I have been attending for over a year now. I was never really one for the "smells and bells", as they say; but I do miss the Mass and the Eucharist (I will probably elect not receive, though, since I have not been to Confession yet). The solemnity of the Mass is what is really missing in a Methodist service, IMO. What do you think? What are the reasons you go to Mass?

I am in awe of the Kurds of Kobani.

It's an eloquent one.

"Walking Dead" fans: We set a record!

http://www.wthr.com/story/26781192/2014/10/14/the-walking-dead-brings-biggest-audience-ever-for-non-sports-cable-program

Fifth-season opener draws the biggest audience ever for a non-sports cable program.

OK, I am watching this movie and . . .

There is an actor in it who, according to wikipedia, has a Turkish father and a Greek mother. So how is it he has blue eyes?

Germany's youth unemployment rate is half that of the US. Guess why?

One word: Apprenticeships.

Chris Hayes just had a segment about last night in St. Louis.

One guest was wearing a black t-shirt reading "Unarmed Civilian". We all need one of those.
