Much like any other day I spent most of my time working and wishing I was riding roller coasters. Oh well, at least Al Lutz had a new column today....

Here's to another year of steel and wood mayhem!

First prize is a ride on Dark Knight at SFGadv. Second prize is two rides on it!

But you have to come to Jersey to claim....

^^That's because there ain't none, Christy. That's why the "secondary" prize is MORE rides.

I don't like that ride...
