Friday procrastination: link love – Bill Murray, bombs, and basketball

Hello and happy Friday to you all.  We have survived scandal in Illinois, rain and cold in NYC, and the holiday shopping season (almost).  Pat yourself on the back.  Now sit back, relax and check out these links.  See you all on Monday!

    The Bill Murray story is definitely an urban legend. The version I first heard took place in the men’s room.
