Year 8

I know some children that are younger than The Year of Magical Painting.  Cute ones, too.

That said, we are back in the saddle after our brief 4 July sabbatical, churning out world-class pablum in a manner that's the envy of the industry.  Next up, the Americas Cup.  About which there is a fair bit to say, not the least being that Luna Rossa reached speeds of nearly 50 miles per hour yesterday in a practice race.

This would be a good time to remind you people that these ships don't have engines.

Somebody once said that having a downhill bike accident in the Tour was like stripping to your skivvies and jumping out the window of a car traveling 50 mph.  Witness Jens Voight falling over in 2010 ...

... at about 50 mph.
