Sarah Palin and the Palm Readers

Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska and vice-presidential candidate, has caught some criticism at a recent convention for apparently writing notes on her left hand.

College Basketball Splinters | February 10, 2010

Troubled times in Austin – Tommy Mason-Griffin led the way with 24, Cade Davis added as the un-ranked Sooners added to Longhorns’ misery. Texas went on to get crushed by Kansas Monday night. Rick Barnes crew is almost in free fall mode. They have lost five of seven and look terrible doing it (Not that there is any good way to lose five of seven).
