Mike Gundy’s Rant Was Despicable (And We Need To Admit It)

Well, it’s been 15 years to the day Oklahoma State Mike Gundy showed his ass in public. That’s a saying from where I grew up in which someone acts so badly in public over something so trivial. OSU had just won a game against Texas Tech and rather than deliver a press conference which isContinue reading “Mike Gundy’s Rant Was Despicable (And We Need To Admit It)”

‘Hell Of A Cruise’ Takes Us On A Yoyage Of Covid’s Early Days

Peacock’s Hell of a Cruise is an eye-opener as well as a reminder of what Covid-19 was like during the winter of 2020 when no one was aware of what would happen next. At just 78 minutes with credits, it keeps the main focus in their early days in which it just seemed another virusContinue reading “‘Hell Of A Cruise’ Takes Us On A Yoyage Of Covid’s Early Days”

Christians Have Only Themselves To Blame For Lack Of Members

This past week, a study from the Pew Research Center was released in which it was concluded that the numbers of those who consider themselves Christian has been shrinking for years and if the trend continues, Christians will be the minority between 2050 and 2070. However, I feel that trend will be a lot sooner.Continue reading “Christians Have Only Themselves To Blame For Lack Of Members”

School Dress Codes Could Be Forms Of Sexual Harassment

At the last media company I worked for, one of the supervisors was terminated surprisingly to them and the rest of the company. But speculation grew it was because this supervisor made the other people in the office, particularly the women, feel uncomfortable when it came to their business casual attire. I heard from oneContinue reading “School Dress Codes Could Be Forms Of Sexual Harassment”

For many years, Britney Spears talked a lot about her religion and faith. Raised in Louisiana, she was a product a Southern Baptist upbrining inthe Bible Belt environment. And she had her peak during the Y2K hysteria, the end of the Millenium and beginning of a new one as well as the Holy War thatContinue reading “Deliver Britney From Real Evil”

Fandom Breeds Prejudices

The irony of people upset over casting of characters in movies and TVs by women and/or BIPIOC is that many of the works are supposed to be about the minorities prevailing over oppressive forces.

Queen Elizabeth’s Death Poses Serious Questions Of Legacy

For a while it seemed Queen Elizabeth II was going to live forever. She had been on the throne for 70 years. It must’ve been a hard role for a young woman in her mid-20s to move into even if she was raised in the Royal Family. While I offer my sympathies and condolensces toContinue reading “Queen Elizabeth’s Death Poses Serious Questions Of Legacy”

We Need To Talk About Herschel Walker

I’m going to be blunt. Herschel Walker might just be the absolute worst candidate the Republican Party has ever supported for elected office. He’s worse than Trump, who I think never really wanted the position, but just was going to use it to further his business deals. He’s worse than Sarah Palin, who thankfully lostContinue reading “We Need To Talk About Herschel Walker”

To Loan Is Human; To Forgive Is Divine

Let me begin this post with telling you a story. It must’ve been about 26 years ago around October 1996 when I was a senior at Calhoun High School in my home town of Calhoun, Ga. I had finally rounded my selections to three or four colleges I was considering. I knew I needed copiesContinue reading “To Loan Is Human; To Forgive Is Divine”

Corporal Punishment Is A Solution In Search Of A Problem

Corporal punishment is child abuse. I’m just going to get that out of the way. I don’t care if it’s one swat on a child’s bottom with a paddle or whipping them with a belt. The student has to be publicly shamed at a school for an infraction that the teacher and/or administrator sees necessitatesContinue reading “Corporal Punishment Is A Solution In Search Of A Problem”
