I accidentally posted a blog without any content.  If you just so happened to surf this page during that 15 second span, I apologize. 

Here’s today’s toon on the Ripken thing.  It’s local and I bet you don’t know what it’s about, do ya?  Here’s a quick cartoonist summary.  Cal Ripken wants his foundation to build a multi-diamond baseball complex in this area.  Fredericksburg has been working on this since last Fall and now Spotsylvania is trying to outbid them for it.  Trouble makers. 

Now if only today’s idea could work out as quickly and easily as yesterday’s.
