New England mortality rate to soar

It seems a lot of older people in Boston and the rest of the Red Sox Nation have been hanging around waiting for a World Series win.

"We know people who are 90 years old who have just said: 'Just one championship before I die,'" Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said.

It reminds me of a sci-fi story, might have even been Stephen King, where this kid has to rush home every night to read his grandfather a book. What he reads is the end of one book and then the beginning of another one. That way the grandfather stays alive another day to find out how the latest story ends and it turns out that the grandfather is something like 150 years old.

He was a great cat and the only one of their pets that really accepted their new baby daughter.
