The Team Behind the Glory

by Glenn J. Thomas I was going to write a second part to my ‘the data of death’ blog but that will have to wait for another time. Instead I want to focus on two specific events that have happened in the last couple days. Over the past several nights I’ve been staying up waaaaay […]

The Data of Death

by Glenn J. Thomas On Sunday, July 7th, two men that I knew died. The first was Ernest Borgnine.  Growing up I knew Ernest as the star of the sitcom McHale’s Navy or as I sometimes referred to it in my youth: “Gomer Pyle with boats”. In my college years, he was etched into my […]
