Silken Saturday

 :) Head lines?   EEG [note two words---it’s an oldie but goodie]

 ??? Sneaky pitch   SPITTER [Aren’t all pitches really sneaky?  That’s why there are signs so only the battery knows which pitch is coming.  {But a balk is a no-no because such a pitching move “deceives the batter” as if each pitch does not do the same.  Can’t figure it out.}  A spitter has become illegal not because it’s deceptive or sneaky but because it’s uncontrollable --- and fast --- so dangerous.]

Who knew?
… a reporter in the comic strip “Bloom County” or that there is such a comic strip

… the name for a bendable straw---which turns out to be a good one
