What's on the nightstand

"Beggars In Spain"

Just when I thought the Eagles season couldn't get any uglier, it did. With about a minute and a half on the clock and the Eagles leading by four points, the Chicago Bears went 97 yards and scored a touchdown. With nine seconds remaining. Needless to say, the Eagles did not have any miracles up their sleeves and are now 2-4 on the season. They play Minnesota, Dallas and Washington next.


Even Uglier. Philadelphia is home to the least attractive people in the United States according to a survey of visitors and residents.

The city of more than 1.5 million people was also found to be among the least stylish, least active, least friendly and least worldly, according to the "America's Favorite Cities" survey by Travel & Leisure magazine and CNN Headline News.

For unattractiveness, Philadelphia just beat out Washington DC and Dallas/Fort Worth for the bottom spot. Miami and San Diego are home to the most attractive people, the poll found.

[So we have that going for us, which is nice.]
