I was prepared to write a scathing post about my local card shop today. I was going to write about how I was getting some cards for a certain winner of my End of the Year contest (I know, it's practically mid-March and I should have done this sooner) and the owner of my LCS is off his rocker. I was going to write about how he wants 50 cents each (EACH!!!) for 1984 Donruss commons. I was going to write about how I found an auction on EBay for a 3200 count box of 1984 Donruss commons for $17.94 shipped. That would be $1,600 at his shop.
I was going to write all that, and more, but then I got to work and saw the news of the huge earthquake in Japan. The news footage of the tsunami sweeping across the landscape is jarring. The tsunami warnings for all the Pacific Islands and the west coast of the U.S. are unsettling. I still have a number of Navy buddies in Hawaii and California.
I'm praying for all those affected already and those who may be affected in the coming hours. It makes a gripe session about one guy being out of touch with reality seem inconsequential.
I'll save that for another day.
