Risk Management

I’m sure this confession will come as a complete shock to most of you, but I have a little obsessive-compulsive issue. Let me assure you, though, I use it only for good, never for evil.

That’s why I never gamble online or at casinos. Left unchecked, gambling could easily be my downfall. Being occasionally dragged to a casino’s lunch buffet is an excellent deterrent. It reminds me that casinos are dingy, sad places.

So when I went to Harrah’s to see Los Lobos last night, I barely glanced at the gambling pit. And since I doubt that my regular entourage will follow me into the heat tonight, I’m inviting you, dear stranger, to join me in Olathe this evening. Malford Milligan, an excellent vocalist from Austin, is playing a free concert in Olathe. Temperature aside, it's a bit of a gamble, because Milligan's weak online presence offers few clues as to what to expect from this performance.

It's a risk I'm willing to take.

    Just wanted to let you know you've got an interesting blog here. Reading your blog has sparked many a fond memories of my former hometown. Interestingly enough, I was doing a google search for The Hurricane and discovered this little gem. Keep up the great writing! I've got a feeling we just might know each other or have at least bumped into each other sometime in a foggy past.
