I've had a chance now to put down eight hours of sleep between the death of 13-year-old motorcycle racer Peter Lenz and what I think about it. And what I think hasn't changed.

Remember two months ago, when Stephen Strasburg struck out 14 in his major-league debut and everyone was oohing and ahhing about his flawless mechanics and easy motion?
There has always been a sense of both occasion and impending doom at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as one might expect at a facility that has seen 67 people die in its 101 years of existence.
Today's absolutely true news item:

... and it also comes from the SEC, where if you say, "People here are crazy about football," you're apparently not speaking rhetorically.
Congratulations, Dan Storrs. You are Da Man.
