Random thoughts and idle musings

- I sure like gaining the hour of sleep in the fall versus losing it in the spring.
- The Kindle is one of those technological inventions that truly changes your personal habits. Much like the i-Pod, the ability to download books, newspapers and magazines is changing the way I purchase and consume reading material.
- Do we really have to endure another two years of Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser? His latest suggestion that the city of Kansas City renege on the lease agreements for Kauffman Stadium and Arrowhead Stadium is truly asinine.
- Have you caught the latest concern that President Obama's hair is graying more quickly? Uh, people, the man is the President of the United States and the leader of the free world. I think there's a bit of stress that comes with the gig.
- Dean & Deluca has decided to stay put at their present location at 119th and Roe in Leawood. The upscale eatery and store was planning to move to a new building in the new shopping center on the southeast corner of 119th and Roe. Probably a wise move...
- In other restaurant news, Chipotle is moving into Hawthorne Plaza, also at 119th and Roe. The shopping area has needed a lunchtime restaurant and traffic driver since the loss of Einstein Bros. Bagels.
- It's March which means that anticipation of the Royals' season opener is in full tilt. This year's anticipation has a different feel, though, given the unveiling of the "new" Kauffman Stadium.
- Tune in to this space a week from now for a full report on Selection Sunday--the time when we find out which teams are in, and where they are seeded, for the NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament.
