I Broke My Own Rule.....


March 30,’14:  I broke my own rule last night.  I “got emotional” at the end of Wisconsin v Arizona despite having no dog in that fight whatsoever.  This pathological over-saturation with “instant replay” reviews may be a worse plague on sports than “board monkeys”.  OK, nothing is THAT bad.

The Wiscy / Zona game was as fine a competitive basketball game as I can recall.  That at several points there were eight white kids on the court out of ten was irrelevant but OMG.... we haven’t seen THAT since the game BEFORE Rupp’s Runts played Texas Western in 1966. 

..... Really, it looked like a noon pick-up game at Raleigh’s Downtown Y.  I kept looking for Smedes York, Danny Lotz and Lou Pucillo. .....

AP: BAZILLIONS Flock To Raleigh Right-Wing Rally!


March 30,’14:  BAZILLIONS of God-luvin' Conservative pilgrims FLOCKED to Raleigh this past weekend.   Their numbers so numerous they blotted out the sun and backed-up traffic all the way to Mebane. ..... OK, not quite THAT many but they didn't have Jim Goodmon's "logistics expert" Peter Anlyan on staff. There WERE a bunch of'em.  ..... But "80-100,000" is hyberbolic BS used to fool Rev BullyBillyBarber's Low Information Hoot 'n Haters.

The Civitas Institute held its annual Conservative Leadership Conference this weekend.   The Raleigh Crabtree Marriott was overflowing with polite, smiling mainstream Americans.  None were "armed".... and none were demanding abortions.

Obvious differences between Civitas' conference and a BullyBilly Hoot &Hate are: (1) gender preferences were generally limited to two for this one.... and (2) what few signs were displayed were spelled correctly and devoid of obscenities.  There were no trashed-out mini-vans with Asheville plates.   OK ... there were A LOT of differences....

Hey Rosa! Where's My HazMat Suit?


March 28,'14:  I told you earlier this week how tired I am of shoveling the sludge from The Great Unpleasantness, but I do what I gotta do.   So I get back from my wonderful weekend sojourn into “yesteryear” when the worst story on sports was “Does Gaylord Perry throw a spitball?” and here comes more yuck spewing out of Chapel Hill.

There are little kids in kindergarten who have never known a world when The Old Well was not ringed with yellow Crime Scene tape. 

Holy Rosa Parks, Mr Friday! ......

AP: McClatchy's Latest WHO ?? MayorCannonWHO ??


March 28,’14:  In the context of “this week” and “in North Carolina”; where were you when you heard: The FBI Have Arrested Charlotte’s Mayor Cannon!.   The story “broke” around 2:30 PM on Wednesday.

Within 90 minutes, those whizbang newshounds at McClatchy’s Charlotte Observer had a lengthy on-line article quoting dozens of semi-prominent Charlotteans / Mecklenburgerites documenting dozens of instances of “Heck, we all knew Patrick was crooked as a dog’s hind leg.”  YIKES! 

They KNEW, and McClatchy editors knew !  Another RielleWho !!.....

AP: Not ANOTHER One.... Yep.


March 26,’14:  I was at a local Panera’s with Eric My Website Guy when my email went to WILDFIRE mode.   Ten emails within five minutes containing the three words “Charlotte Mayor Arrested”.  I reckon you’ve heard, huh?

Eric and I concluded our business.  It had been another fifteen minutes and I had another dozen emails about “it”.   I got up-to-speed thinking: Not ANOTHER One! ..... and quickly decided what I would do about “it” – Not Much.   And here’s why.....

The Twelve Labours of..... an Internet Legend


March 26,’14:  There aren’t Twelve.  Only Two so far.  Neither of the two labors involve multi-headed demon-dogs or really messy stables or a Hesperian Apple, but they are laborious in terms of time-consuming.

Oh, I found the original first draft of Carolina Married A Stripper! .....

Reduced to Johnny Dawkins or Archie Miller.... OUCH!


March 23,’14:  The first weekend of March Madness is over and fabled Tobacco Road is reduced to pulling for legacies Johnny Dawkins or Archie Miller.  OUCH!

Sure, Swofford can pull for Virginia (and I REALLY like Tony Bennett too!) but otherwise The ACC is shutting down its vaunted basketball operation and heading over to the ball diamonds.    Franklin Street goobers are “bragging” at least WE lost to a Power Conference school SO you know..... we’ve all been whupped like rented mules. ......

AP: UNC Prez Tom Ross Is A Nincompoop


March 23,’14:  I was skeptical when Tom Ross was named President of the vaunted UNC System.  His CV had the standard hard-core left-wing credits to impress the hard-core left-wing academaniacs but was woefully lacking in “big boy” management acumen.  My fears have proven valid.   I am prepared to formally declare Tom Ross is A Nincompoop.

Using a phrase from BobLee..... Tom Ross is proving to be “the Dickie Baddour of UNC System Presidents”.   Being the Dick Baddour of anything is to be avoided. ....
