Katherine and ‘Wayne

Filed in Everwhatever

Watch CBS Videos Online The snippets of Katie Couric’s interview with Li’l Wayne are quite interesting. I’m not sure what’s up with his teefis, but the fact that he calls her “Miss Katie” is almost endearing. One day, I’ll hafta figure out where Wayne fits in the modern-day pantheon. I wouldn’t classify him as being [...]

Terrible, Not Turrble

ESPN reflects on the Terrible Towel. Among the things that has the Stillers trying so hard to take me from the Iggles is the Terrible Towel. There is simply nothing like it in sports. It’s all in the article, but I’m tellin you what I know first-hand. Steelers fans? Terrible Towels. You go to the [...]

Muddy In The Middle

(This is not a post about the politics of education, although politics plays a part. It’s not about how people’s poor habits hamper their educational aspirations, but that’s a part of it, too.

Sasha and Malia dolls, though? For real? As [...]

Random Randomness

So I went to the inauguration on Tuesday. It was cold. Not Chicago cold, but cold enough. Especially considering I was out there all day. It was a day made for long johns. Even though 27 ain’t 12, if you stay out in it long enough, you can get chilled to the bone in that [...]

Selling In?

I went for Obama. Let’s get that out of the way first. Secondly, let’s establish that I am going downtown for the festivities. No question about it. But in the midst of all that, let me just say that I’m thoroughly dismayed by what’s going on. I mean, I understand why he wants an open [...]
