Know When to Fold 'em
Those who have been by recently saw I had referenced Poker Nation as a book I'm currently reading. One of the heroes talked about in the book was Stu Unger, who is the subject of a new movie, Stuey, made by a Nashville filmmaker, A.W. Vidmer. It's a fine movie, starring Michael Imperioli of The Sopranos.

I love gambling movies and books for some reason. Maybe it's because I secretly long to be able to make that huge money, because I believe I could stop when I was ahead, because I like the idea of risk rather than the reality of risk. I don't know. Whatever it is, I know I'd be a big loser. So, I guess I'm making the smart move by not playing at all.

Oh, I have a guppy update: we have baby fish! Looks like about a dozen or so. I knew I should have set up a camera to film the births. Oh well. Everyone seems happy for now.

My write-ups on Neal Pollack should appear in The Tennessean this week. I'll link to it when it goes online. It's kind of disappointing because I don't have much space. I'm going to have to find a magazine to take my longer info. Or just post it here.
