Way too many Web sites for contest-crazy fans

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you are bad in any way if you aren't a college basketball fan. But being from this area, you'd better know a little something about it because if not, your co-workers are sure to avoid you like a 72-year-old cheese log during the next few days.

Just ask iGod about life's mysteries ... I did

 

Tonight, I had a little chat with God. Well, I should say it was iGod. Here's the transcript:

Just get the computer to feed your cat
