The UCONN women's basketball Huskies lost to Mississippi State in overtime, by two points, at the buzzer, in the semi-final game of this year's "March Madness" NCAA tournament. The Mississippi State team convincingly outplayed the UCONN women and richly deserved to advance. They'll play South Carolina for the championship on Sunday.
Also it snowed again last night, so blah.

Selling water: Coke, Pepsi look to make water rain money
"NEW YORK (AP) — Bottled water is starting to seem more like soda, and sometimes taste like it, too.
"'Someone could argue with a straight face that maybe those belong with (sodas),' executive editor Duane Stanford noted. But, he said, people drink Sparkling Ice with the 'mindset' that it is water."

Town of Reduction, population 60, up for sale in Pennsylvania
"Got $1.5 million to spare? If so, tiny Reduction, a one-time company town built to house workers at a long-vanished garbage-processing plant in western Pennsylvania, could be yours for the asking.…
"The plant, built by American Reduction Co on a wide bend of the Youghiogheny River, shut down in 1936 after processing waste from the city of Pittsburgh since the early 20th century.
Workers would render animal carcasses, and separate metal from household waste for resale.…
"'This was the original recycling plant,' said David Stawovy, 67, who owns Reduction with his three siblings."
Maybe you could start a recycling museum.
And yeah, you probably could have won. So could have anybody else. Almost.
…planet hacking sounds kind of cool. Except well, Trump. Know what I mean? What if his idea of geoengineering is papering the whole thing over with gold leaf? I’m not dissing gold leaf lovers here but it’s just not exactly my style. So I’m hoping we at least hold a vote.
Also, spraying a lot of chemicals into the air to see what happens is a little too speculative for my taste. Or smell. Of course it’s not the smell we’re worried about here, it’s the sun. Possibly we ought to geoengineer the sun, put in a dimmer switch.
Now, I’m a Middle American myself, at heart, and I’m lodging a complaint.
Consider: Here’s some Hollywood guy bitching about how Middle America and Rotten Tomatoes ruined a recent movie he directed:
“'People don’t realize what goes into making a movie like that,' Ratner continued before pointing out that Middle Americans are too stupid to make decisions about which films they like on their own and base their opinions solely on the Rotten Tomatoes score."
The “movie like that” he’s talking about got a 27% score on Rotten Tomatoes and still made $900 million on a $250 million investment. And, oh yeah, it’s named "Batman v Superman.” I’m asking, why would Batman want to fight Superman? Is he nuts? Deciding not to watch that movie sounds pretty smart to me.
Just remember, if you took the middle out of America all you’d have left is a couple of edges, sort of like what you cut off the bread when you’re making fancy sandwiches. And throw away.
