Today's score: SEALs 3, Pirates 0

Bob Greene's take on it is included in the above link.

From a Conference Sunday photoshoot

Following the concluding session of the LDS General Conference yesterday afternoon, I drove over to the Mesa Arts Center for a scheduled photoshoot with my friend Marietta Tartaglia. Given the significance of the day, this image, one of the last taken during the shoot, seemed especially fitting. It reminded me immediately of the way angels are portrayed in the art of the Latter-day Saints, and I hope Marietta, a thoroughly decent and deeply religious young woman, enjoys this one as much as I do.
