Sunday Round Up...

Because I'm a dork (and I wanted a free t-shirt), I decided to ride my bike yesterday morning to the mall for the opening of the new Apple Store.

To my surprise, however, my dorkiness was surpassed many, many, many times over. (I mean that affectionately.)

When I got there around 10 am, the line for the store -- which would let only 140 people in at one time -- stretched outside the mall, across a footbridge and far into the parking garage. After going inside for a few minutes to see first-hand what the fuss was about (a store full of attractive computers and a free t-shirt, apparently), I went back outside, noticing the line hadn't budged, and decided ride around the lakes.

More coverage of the craziness here, here, here, here, here and video (including a couple getting engaged) here.

Now, for something less divisive than computer brands: Comp Lite. It looks like we will finally get an answer to the question that's been presumptively answered, by some at least, for months. Although I'm certainly happy that citizens will have clear resolution to this -- especially after the judgement against the referendum -- I still wonder why opponents didn't first challenge the legislation's legality in court. Did they think there was a better chance of voters overturning it than a judge? Was it a matter of finances? I'm not trying to be combative, just curious.

Either directly or indirectly, taxes and their impact on elections are the focus of a couple stories in the Sun.

And that's all...

There's a lot more apples on display at Produce Galore in Wilde Lake, most produced locally, too, not on the other side of the world.
