Tomorrow, Star Wars Episode III : Revenge of the Sith goes on sale. Hopefully Santa Claus will make a note of that in the event I was “nice” this year.
As if you need to get in the mood, I recommend going to The Darth Side: Memoirs of a Monster and reading it from the start. It is simply brilliant and really gets you in the mood for watching Episode III.
One sad note though, William Hootkins, who played Porkins, has died, cause of death — TIE fighter.
Oh, to be in State College for Halloween. It is probably the best night of the year up there.
It is Myron Cope Day in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It is also Myron Cope Night at the Stillers vs. Ravens game at Heinz Field. Celebrate with a Myron Cope collector can of Rolling Rock. Better yet, get the can but only as a souvenir. Bleech!
More from Beaver County Times: Cope, Terrible Towel to be honored tonight

Potential Owner Vows to Never Move Nationals
– AP/WTOPJeff Smulyan
explains that his local investors (to the tune of $100 million) could veto any move out of D.C. Charles “Hungry” Mann
, one of several former Redskins in the Smulyan bid added:
Why are people getting on that tangent? I don’t understand that. People threaten to move if you don’t build them a new stadium. Well, guess what? The stadium’s being built. So let’s just stop with that. That’s a smoke screen by somebody that doesn’t make any sense.
Mann makes a good point, but how many people are worried about Smulyan moving the team? My worries are more along the line of “if Jeff Smulyan wants to do for Washington what he did for Seattle” or some other political cliche.
