A Rant or Two


  • For days after a blown call at a football game all the news was about a flag being picked up. It was pervasive. It was on television news and on my Internet news browsers and radio. In one commute I heard about it from 3 different radio stations. Now (01/28/2015) the controversy is the underinflated footballs. Good grief. So, America after solving all her problems has decided she can worry about footballs with a little too little air in them?!
  • Underinflated wasn't a word? Well, it is now.
  • A headline earlier regarding Bowe Bergdahl said to the effect, From Prisoner to Deserter? This was in regards to the possibility he will face desertion charges after he abandoned his post leading to his capture by the Taliban. Anyway, the assumption wrapped in the question is wrong as he went from deserter to prisoner.
  • This commercial that was yanked after some sort of outrage or somethin' is proof we have lost not only our minds but also our sense of humor. Also, it proves we're happy to let the ninnies run the world.
  • Morons- people who text while driving. There is no safe way to do it.
  • OK, I'm better. Thanks for being here for me.

I read a while back that texting while driving is more dangerous than drinking and driving.

That sounds wrong, but apparently it has something to do with the parts of the brain you use when texting.

I don't do either. Mostly, while driving, I just think about tv ads I'd like to see banned.

What about texting while DUI? That's got to be on a Darwin Top 10 list somewhere.
