2008-02-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you want to hear the funniest random fact of PECOTA's comparables? 2 of Carlos Pena's comparables are disturbingly ironic. 1 guy(Mike Epstein) was nicknamed "SuperJew"(per his wiki) and the other had a last name of Gentile(Jim Gentile).
(jlarsen from DRays Bay)
BP readers are an interesting lot.

Or should that be interesting Lot? (David Laurila)
