Now on sale at Costco.com for only $3,399.99: dinner with Yogi Berra and others. The web site says shipping and handling is included, and the dinner is in Arizona, so I assume you have to put yourself in a box and present yourself at a UPS facility.

A mere week after I actually offered a toast* at a dinner party to Bud Selig, in appreciation of that nasty, nasty man’s surprise brokering of an amicable new baseball labor deal, I find that I again have to credit him: surprisingly enough, he made a truthful statement!

Should I worry that my world is turning upside down?
*Stacey refused to join the toast.
