Well, then, congrats on being the tallest midget, Bisco.
You mean Lon Gisland?
When I was in grad school, I interned at the place where I work now. I'm in a different division than I was when I was an intern, but it's the same department. My internship supervisor, who called to encourage me to apply for the job, is probably a couple/few years from retirement, and I'm well qualified to grow into that position.

The AJC was speculating this morning that it's season ending, but, yeah, looks like it was confirmed to be his ACL. When we were watching the game, I told my wife it looked like one, but I was hoping I'd en up being just a stupid fan talking. Guess I got this one right. Yay. Pretty much since they announced that the suspension would be four games, I've been saying that as a fan I wanted to see him come back, but as a realist I thought there was an incredibly strong...
