The Man Who Would Be King

One of my favorite movies of all-time and an apt descriptor for King James, aka Lebron James, professional basketball star. Lebron is approaching the all-time NBA scoring record held by the much-revered Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Lebron is supposed to be here. He was anointed at age 16 and has pretty much lived up to theContinue reading “The Man Who Would Be King”

When is Enough Enough?

When free agency hit sports, I started to lose interest. It used to be your city had a professional sports team and the whole city rooted for them because it was their” team, “their” players. Players would play their entire career for the same team and this gave fans a vested interest in cheering theContinue reading “When is Enough Enough?”

I Thought I Heard it All

Keystone. Car 54 Where are you? Uvalde. The police shot and killed a double amputee. Not the athletic, mobile type running on two prosthetic limbs. No. Stumps. He was trying to run away on his stumps. They caught him by walking. He did, however, have a butcher knife he was wielding, so, according to theContinue reading “I Thought I Heard it All”

Calling it Quits

Retiring, hanging ‘em up, call it whatever you want, but it happens (or will  happen Tom Brady) to all of us. I joke about it, but to be playing at his level at his age defies logic. Of course, he does have access to the best. Of everything. Food, medical assistance, you name it. I’llContinue reading “Calling it Quits”

Second Chances

Not everybody deserves them. Murderers should die the same way they killed. Thieves should have to pay back ten times what they stole at whatever rate they pay working prisoners per license plate, or whatever. If it starts to take ten years prison time to start paying back small fines, criminals may think twice. NoContinue reading “Second Chances”

Did I Hear That Right?

The Memphis Police Department, embroiled in the murder of one of its citizens they took an oath to serve and protect, has decided they will simply stop racial profiling. Simple. Who knew it would be that easy? Saying they will stop racial profiling is the same as making a recipe for a cake that requiresContinue reading “Did I Hear That Right?”

Tyre Nichols

By now, the whole world has seen the disgusting video of the beating, er murder, of another innocent black man at the hands of a lynch mob disguised as police officers in the city of Memphis, TN. Man’s inhumanity to man. Not black v. white; no, black on black. Go figure. Like black men don’tContinue reading “Tyre Nichols”

I Can’t Resist

A twenty-seven year old woodworking teacher in Missouri was arrested for having sex with a sixteen year old student. Her picture is not horrible, and I am sure with a ton of makeup, a push-up bra, and the right conditions, she could be every horny sixteen year-old’s dream girl. To all his buddies he isContinue reading “I Can’t Resist”

Top Secret

Now Mike Pence, the ex-Vice President, has boxes of top secret documents that he had no idea were in his possession. I know I am a little slow on the uptake, but who the hell is in charge of handing out documents crucial to the well-being of all Americans? If they are giving them toContinue reading “Top Secret”

Better Late?

If you call me up and don’t start speaking within the first five seconds, my ass is gonna hang up on your ass and I will block your number for all-time. Pet peeve? Probably more like a foible. Although I am actually avoiding the Old Man Syndrome where everything irritates you, and that is probablyContinue reading “Better Late?”
