While the Red Bulls have again qualified for the playoffs in M.L.S. after last week’s victory and Houston’s loss Sunday, it is sobering to realize that Sunday afternoon’s game against visiting Columbus at Red Bull Arena could be Henry’s final home game. That, of course, depends on where the Red Bulls finish in the Eastern Conference (they close with a match at Sporting Kansas City). The Red Bulls could finish as high as second place, or in fifth place, which would mean a one-game playoff away against the fourth-place club.

Actually NEVER BEEN to Nitehawk. But Ving Rhames (the short film) is excellent (as is jerky).

I love the mouse over text on XKCD, it often makes me go, “oh, wow.”

According to George Packer’s thorough and sobering New Yorker profile of Amazon, the company now makes $5.25 billion on book sales, only about 7 percent of the company’s $75 billion in total yearly revenue. This is chump change to Amazon, yet this amount still accounts for half the book sales in this country.
