  So maybe I am a Pack Rat.
I am currently receiving the New York Times through the mail. I get all seven days, and I read through each day with an eagle eye for articles that I can use.

I have a few main subjects that I am currently gathering and then there are the miscellaneous ones. I would love to be able to scan these articles into a database, to have at my finger tips, but alas I have to be content with manila envelopes labeled with the particular subject of articles.

My problem is that I cut out a particular article and file it away, for what purpose? Sometimes a particular story will come back into the news at a later point and it will be of interest to see how the initial assumptions did not pan out in the long run.

Other stories deserve a passing note and then I need to move on. I am good at the gathering of the articles, but they have quickly become a large round-to-it pile that is going to get me in trouble with the staff for having too much newsprint in my possession.

For the rest of my Sunday afternoon, I will attempt to get the notes written to you faithful blog readers, and then toss the articles out and move on. Sometimes it is just so hard to let go.

I did write about two articles today and tossed out an additional two without comment. One of the articles dealt with professional athletes selling their uniform numbers to new players joining the team. It seems that some of the players end up being traded after purchasing a number, and then decide not to finish paying for the number that they no longer need.

The other article was titled "A Critic Takes on the Logic of Female Orgasm."
