The Washington Crackers?


Is this offensive?

The time has come to axe the sports team monikers that Native Americans find so offensive.  It’s long overdue.  Slavery, a horrific tradition, lasted hundreds of years too many.  Men-only voting spanned the decades.  To this country’s shame, marriage is scarcely defined as a union between a man and woman.  So, sadly, most traditions, right or hell-fire wrong, as is tradition, come to an end.

It seems the time is tick-tock-tomahawking on The Washington Redskins.  The Cleveland, Indians.  Sorry, Chief Wahoo.  And other sports franchises as well.

A Tale of Two Hypocrites


Men say they want a virgin. They don't. They say they want a woman. They don't.

For better of for worse is such a short time.  Especially if you’re Nick Lachey or Joe Simpson.

When pop stars Jessica Simpson and 98 Degrees boy band member Nick Lachey wed in October of 2002, it seemed a match made in pop star heaven.  Nick was from the Midwest.  Jessica, a beautiful Texan, with boobs as big as the state she grew up in, was that rare combination that has attained near unicorn status: Christian and virgin.

Horror of Horrors

Tracy Morgan and Psy at the BMAs

KLOWN Tracy Morgan certainly brought the KORNY (as expected.)

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards was a musical of horrors.

Between the lip syncing and the horrendous so called “natural” singing, mostly it was just a horror of horrors.

The comic, although likable and not comedic, at times seemed lost.

He may even be borderline illiterate or half-blind and in need of thicker contacts.

Who is Celine Gomez?

And isn’t that big scary white girl’s name pronounced Keh-sha?  Not Kee-sha?

They’re Alive!

This evening, Clevelanders were stunned to learn that two teenagers and a twenty-year-old woman who went missing over ten years ago were found alive.  In their own neighborhood.  Right in their own backyard.

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight were rescued today when Charles Ramsey heard Amanda screaming for help to open the door she was kicking to free herself and the others.
