oakland clinches

The A’s clinched the division last night after a few days of sitting at a magic number of 2, so my tickets will now be useful.

The four AL teams that are in the playoffs are the Yankees (booh!), Tigers, Twins and A’s. As I believe is the case, the A’s will have to play a Central team because they can’t play each other, so that gives us either the Tigers or the Twins. The Yankees and Tigers are tied for the best record, but we know that the Tigers can’t play the Twins, so unless something dramatically changes, I think it’s going to be Yankees-Twins, Tigers-A’s for the ALDS’s. Oakland is 4-5 for the year versus the Tigers and 4-6 against the Twins for the year, so it might actually be slightly better to get the Tigers.

Parents of Covington Elementary School students had reason to rejoice Tuesday when their prayers were answered in the form of the Los Altos City Council’s rejection of plans for a cell phone tower [inside a to-be-constructed 10ft cross] atop a church near the school.

“Their prayers were answered”? Really?

These people who are objecting to a 10ft cross and mobile phone transmitter for aesthetics and health reasons were praying that the Los Altos city council not allow it? I find that unlikely.

Lesson of the day: language is made up of words; words have meaning.
