New definition: boozered - the act of snookering a business partner, using feigned loyalty and duplicity, into releasing one from a contract in order to obtain a richer one elsewhere. Ex. I let him out of our deal in order to reward him but then he boozered me!

Hey Carlos Boozer, remember, Cleveland fans never forget. Just ask Art Modell.

Burning down the house...

Across the highway from my office they are building a Wal-Mart. It will be built on a bluff that overlooks the Cuyahoga River Valley. Down in the valley you can see the Ohio Canal. It's a state waterway and has a bike trail that runs into a national park. The bluff is one of the last scenic areas to be developed in Cuyahoga County. How Wal-Mart, Dick's, OfficeMax and others got hold of it is a shame.

There used to be a single-family house sitting on the site. It was built about ten years ago. I think the developer originally wanted to build homes. They stripped the house clean and then did a controlled burn on it today. In the next picture you can see the firemen lined up for a picture while the house burns down in the background.
