Excellent column Bill! I really enjoyed working with you (but not your position!). My solution to ease the pain: read or watch stories on baseball. Netflix has "Fastball" and "Knuckleball". I'm reading "Crazy 08" on the 1908 baseball season (last time the Cubs won). And of course there is always the excellent series by Ken Burns on baseball. The Tribe will have almost the entire team back next year and I am looking forward to that!
