  • Ichiro is slowing down. The Korean remembers his American friends who scoffed at his belief that Ichiro would be an all-star and a hall of famer. They are not scoffing anymore. [New York Times]

  • Erik Spoelstra is half Filipino and visits the Philippines every year. Basketball is huge in the Philippines, apparently. [ESPN: Grantland]
  • City of Houston cautions against Fan Death: "Electric fans should only be used in conjunction with an air conditioner. A fan can't change the temperature of a room; it can only accelerate air movement, and will accelerate the body's overheating." [City of Houston Health and Human Services]
  • At least one U Penn graduate is an idiot. [Dealbreaker]
  • Legal fees are high in Korea, and lawyers are crooks. What else is new? [Korean Law Blog]
