Burdened by an Abby Normal Brain

Sept 15,’14:  Last week we used “Airplane”.  Today we go to yet another cinema cult classic – "Young Frankenstein" – for Marty Feldman’s pilfering of Abby Normal’s brain.  

After more than a few years of NOT being surprised by (or agreeing with) my fellow humans’ reactions to much of anything, I have decided it is My Problem.  My brain is Abby Normal.  Maybe some of you share my burden.  Maybe your brain is Abby Normal too.   It is not a matter of smarter or dumber, but rather “a keener perception of the obvious”.

We begin “at The Wally” or more aptly NOT “at The Wally”.

AP: Videos! So America needs Videos in order to....

Sept 12,’14:   The American IQ is sinking faster and farther than an anvil tossed into The Mariana’s Trench.  We as a collective nation apparently need “a video” to grasp the concept of a man beating up a woman.  

There are few acts of humankind more brutally savage and uncomplicated than a man using his fists to beat up a woman.  “Why” might justify a library of psychological treatises.  The act itself is as mechanically uncomplex as it can be.  It predates the wheel and fire.

It is 2014.  High profile powerful executives can say “Oh, NOW I ‘get’ the concept of what he (Ray Rice) did”.    America needed a “video” to grasp that concept.   OK America.... grasp THIS ONE.

"Roger Roger"

Sept 10,’14:  One of a plethora of classic lines from “Airplane”.... I miss Leslie Nielsen.

There are certain jobs that come with a “hate – hate” relationship between the job-holder and the general public:  School Superintendent, City Manager, Major College AD, Manager of the Yankees (Not named Joe Torre) and Commissioner of any pro sports league.   That last one is the only one that comes with a mega-million $$$$ salary.

“We” look at those office-holders and marvel at their ability to consistently (from our perspective) “screw-up one-car funerals”.... while projecting personas of incredible smugness.   “Smug” is never a good persona to project.   Roger Goodell is the poster boy for “Smug”.

Does Your School Have a Ray Donovan... yet?

Sept 8,’14:  Ray Donovan (Showtime) is “a fixer”...... “a cleaner”.   One of your key employees or clients finds him/herself in a helluva mess, you call Ray.  Ray “fixes the problem”.   You don’t wanna know how he does it, just that “it’s fixed”.   Before Ray there was “Nico” on Necessary Roughness.

If your school is recruiting The Top 100 you are stockpiling loose hand grenades.  KABOOMS are not “maybes”.  KABOOMS are “whens”.   “When” then you better have “a Ray Donovan” on retainer and on speed dial.

NOT “at my school”.  YES, “at your school”.

AP: "Those Failing McClatchy Newspapers"

Sept 7,’14:  OK you self-righteous, self-absorbed pointy-headed jackasses, two can play this stoopid little game. 

The “suits” at “the failing McClatchy newspaper in Charlotte” have decreed that they will no longer mention a certain Washington NFL team by its team name.  That “R-word”. ..... That is “news” on a level of the latest “bucket challenge” is news.    Yawn... snort.... burp.

AP: It's Not Arnie's Wake Forest any more ....

Sept 5,’14:  Is your pristine image of Wake Forest College that tree-lined campus in Northern Wake County where Arnold Palmer played golf in the 50s.... Peahead Walker coached football.... that relocated to Winston-Salem in 1956 with Bones McKinney et al.  Oh, and all those trite stereotypes about strict Southern Baptist “thou shalt nots”?

That definitely is NOT the Wake Forest of 2014 by any stretch of a imagination.  Unless its Stephen King’s imagination.   Commissar Nathan Hatch is rapidly turning that once proud institution into the ultimate devil’s den of very very left-wing radicalism.  And it may already be too late to save it.

.... and her name is Cotten

Sept 3,’14:  Blondie will always be a Midwestern girl at her core.  Going on 30 years she still studies Southern Culture like scientists watching lab rats.  “Why are pretty Southern girls named after commodities?” is a typical question I get asked.  

I have a she-cuzzin in New Bern named “Sugar” and a high school classmate named “Cotten” prompting her question.   “Cotten” is a family name hence the “e” rather than “o”.    I’m not sure if names fit people or people fit names.  “Cotten Skinner" sounds like a statuesque blond with a super-charged personality.... or a heroine in a Pat Conroy novel.  Doesn’t it?

Opening day of high school my junior year there was a Big Rumor afoot.  A new girl had moved in “from Greenville”..... and her name is Cotten.

The Franklin Street Fact Factory

Sept 1,’14:   Saturday was a VERY good day for yours truly.  The Fighting Fedorians (maybe we need to change that name, huh?) are now five Ws from bowl eligibility.   I had a heck of a fun time Under The Bubble – aka “in Chapel Hill”.

Being at an internationally renown citadel of learning..... I “learned” that everybody – but ME - knows exactly what happened in that Aloft hotel room several weeks ago.  I heard NINE different versions of “exactly what happened”.   Like I said..... it was a fun time with a very high Hoot Factor..
