Mika Immonen: “Mercy is a Disease”

What a beautiful concept!  ("Mercy is a Disease").

This morning I read about Mika's quote in the blog Pool Cue News and Review.
And then I Googled the phrase and found that there was only one link to that exact phrase being used in that context, and it was in the London Evening Standard (today!) with a good story about Mika and how he doesn't get into much idle chit-chat.  

I really appreciate a person who can get a major thought out in as few words as possible, something I always try to do, but seldom achieve.  Click the two links above and read more on this winning mind-set.

Easy Street Billiards For Sale

Check out the website for Easy Street Billiards at

Nice place, eh?  Man, I wish I lived in Monterey, CA so I could hang out there all day long.  Wouldn't it be great to own the place and make a few bucks, hopefully, and shoot pool on nice tables with mellow customers?

If you see yourself owning this place, call Michael Stansbury, owner, at 831-521-4442, and tell him Ricky Bryant told FastMikie about it.

Only $125,000 from what I understand, including tables, furniture, the works, free and clear.
