To the Point

An empty shell as president, a torturer running the secret government, Education run by a privileged amateur, and the EPA pivoted to environmental destruction for pay, I’d say America is actually sporting a government that is representative of the American government.--Upthepeople/CommonDreams

A Glimmer of Hope

Oregon is getting a lot of backhanded respect from writers around the country who believe the Ducks are seeded too low (12 Midwest)  in the tournament, which begins this morning.

A 9-16 seed has never won the dang thing.  Here's a novel approach to explaining why it won't happen this year either.

Oregon has a tough opening matchup against Oklahoma State (1:40 TNT) and its star freshman point guard, Marcus Smart.

But since the Ducks are known to be seeded too low they are exempt from this logic, right?

Wrong.  The numbers guy in the basketball sky puts it this way:  Oregon has an .03 percent chance of winning it all.

Whatever that means.
