    I missed Barenaked Ladies' last sweep through Albany because it was on a Tuesday night. Dammit.

    Bag the hr derby, but what about an empathtic boss willing to cover the pc meeting. I mean, its the mid summer classic!

    For some stupid reason our Plan Commission always schedules meetings on the night of the NCAA Basketball Finals. The first tuesday in April is usually an election date, so instead of moving the meetings from Tuesday to Wednesday, they move it to Monday.

    I have also had to turn down baseball and basketball tickets and have missed a few good concerts. I think all Cities should have day meetings. It might reduce the number of yahoos that show up.
