[Expos to remain in Montreal]

Just as the World Series is about to begin, MLB officials quashed any hopes for baseball in D.C. next year, saying that the Expos (currently owned by the rest of the franchises) will remain in Montreal until firm stadium financing conditions are met in some other city. The Expos may even play some of their games in Portland, Oregon or San Juan, Puerto Rico next year, since those are two of the cities in contention for the Expos franchise. But, oh, no, not Washington! What a hideous, nightmarish way to mark the end of the 2002 season... Thanks a lot, Peter Angelos!

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
