Sorry for the CHATTER blackout. We've been in Kentucky, sussing out some potentials for the future.
Anyway, the death of Anna Nicole Smith on Thursday sparked quite the race for the point. Ladies and gents, the photo finish:
•The winner is Strannix, who flagged us at 2:53 p.m.
•Behind by a scant minute was John Stone, in with the obit at 2:54 p.m.
•Then came MIT, e-mailing at 3:10 p.m. Though, to his credit, MIT also rang us while we were in Louisville, creating a stir in our meeting. Whee!
•ErikJoplin chimed in at 3:19 p.m.
•Brother Richard e-mailed at 4:18 p.m.
Congrats, Strannix. One big point. Or two, in this case.
