ST. PETERSBURG — For a week, the Internet has been seething in debate over whether Pinellas County's regulations on barbecue smoke are completely logical or a gross government overreach. …

The latest controversy over Hillary Clinton's emails — the allegation that classified information was improperly transmitted on her private email server — is, or should be, a non-scandal.
In an essay in his 1976 collection, Mortal Lessons, the physician Richard Selzer describes a strange suburban scene. People go outside in the morning in his neighborhood, after the garbage trucks have passed, and find "a foreignness upon the pavement," a softness underfoot.
My first Tardis trip into the world of comic conventions was Orlando's MegaCon a few years back. It was a deep-end "nerd-u-cation."
Convention season is upon us, and venues all across the country are opening their doors to droves of spandex-clad, mask-wearing, LARPing comic and pop culture enthusiasts. This weekend, it's Tampa Bay's turn. I took a drive down to Miami for Florida Supercon to do some research on the popular convention costumes this …

So just how did Rays CF Kevin Kiermaier hurt his left eye?
By stretching his legs before Monday's game.
Kiermaier said he was using an elastic stretching band about 30 minutes before game time and went to switch feel when the mishap occurred.
"I had a little too much slack on it when I was switching legs and the band kind of just squared me up right in the eye,'' Kiermaier said. "I don't know how.''
Kiermaier said he expects to be back in the lineup Tuesday, though the Rays want to see how he is first before committing.
Kiermaier said he at first thought he was fine, but realized in tryinh to track Yoenis Cespedes first-inning fly ball he was having trouble with blurred vision, and made it worse by continuing to rub it.
Though he had an RBI bloop double in the fourth he continued to have problems and said by his sixth inning at-bat, when he struck out, "I couldn't see at all.''
The Rays took him out at that point.
"It's the most uncomfortable I've felt in the batters box all year,'' Kiermaier said. "I even told (Tigers C Alex) Avila, "I can't see right now.'' (I'm sure he was) like "Okay, cool, this kid can't see right now." I know I probably shouldn't have said that, but I said, you know what, this is a hang-with-'em type of at-bat.''...
