Do I need to point out that its cold

I don't have much time today to write, since I have my big dentist appointment at 10. Yep as you guess I did go skiing, bringing my total for the year to 27 days. One week until the big Utah ski trip, I can't wait.

Back to Friday, somebody decided to end there life by jumping in front of an Orange Line train. Why does this concern me you may ask? Well it meant I had to try and figure out what was going on and then determine the best way to get to Malden Center. The MBTA website wasn't too helpful, there wasn't one mention of the accident or the fact that they were busing between Back Bay and North Station. I wonder if there is a statistic on train jumpers, if my memory serves me correctly, we average at least two a year in Boston. If these people are going to commit suicide why don't they do it in a more sensational way. Jump off a building or do something to get some news coverage, while you are doing it, but please don't mess up everybody else's commute. Okay now I know this is terrible for me to say, I would certainly encourage people to avoid suicide at all costs, there has to be a better solution. So don't do it!!!

There was one odd note to the subway jumper. The news stations all had helicopters flying over Haymarket. Can somebody tell me why a helicopter would be useful in covering footage of an accident underground?

Maddox has a good strategy for all of the junk mail you probably recieve everyday. Check it out at Junk the Junk.

Alright that is all for now, look for a brief entry after I get back from the dentist.
