We used to have a pharmacist who when working during the Super Bowl, would post a sign on the cash register saying:

I am recording the Super Bowl. Please do not tell me the score or the outcome.

Carol Ann, your pharmacist was wise. The sign was an excellent idea.

As is my proposed law, which essentially is that people recording a game wear their own highly visible sign that proclaims:

"Please don't tell me the score or the outcome."

Women's suffrage and civil rights legislation took a long time to pass. I may have to wait a while before society realizes how important it is to pass "Brian's Law."

But someday those of us who record and watch later will be able to walk proudly in public on game day, no longer forced to slink about in fear and shadows.

Our day will come. It will come.

Dear Brian,

"...I tried to take charge...."
"Ah, back in control."
"...I was using a lot of psychic energy...."
"...you can never relax. ..."

What of Wu? As you depict it, it seems that you will have no Laack of problems in your life.
