Did you attend your high school prom?

Well, buddy... I must say, you're either joking, lying, or confusing prom with homecoming. I do appreciate the humor, though. However, there's absolutely no way you were harvesting any outdoor dope in May or early June, whether it was ditchweed or not. The EARLIEST you could possibly harvest that garbage would maybe be early July, but I still doubt that. At this time of the year, you'd be lucky to find any plants that were more than a foot or two tall, and they would have absolutely no plant material worth smoking, just a few leaves.. (not that they have any real redeemable plant material when they top out at 8-12 feet tall, either.) Hell, I really don't even think they would have begun to acquire any of the thousands of seeds that they're notorious for.

Now... If you meant homecoming dance, then that crap would be ripe for the pickin's, if for nothing else than to make some rope with.

Sadly, my friends and I tried a similar thing way back in high school, but we did so in late September or early October when some of the plants were upward of about 13 feet tall, and consisted of little more than thousands upon thousands of seeds and leaves.

Anyhow, thanks for sharing this story and provoking me to reminisce on the good old days of high school when worries were few. And enjoy the oyster mushrooms.

Royals 2011 Preview Part II - The Lineup

Beltran, Dye, and Damon are the obvious three. John Buck put up solid numbers last year, and I know I'm going to miss David DeJesus. I think DeJesus is one of the most underrated players in the MLB. He wasn't the quickest, but he always got a great jump on the ball right off the bat, and had great instincts. I'll never forget the running/flying/diving/rolling catch he made at Yankee Stadium a few years ago. He ended up injuring his shoulder on the play and missed the rest of the season, but the Yankee fans even gave him a standing ovation as he walked off the field, as they recognized what a great play he'd made. Ironically, he injured himself while attempting another great catch at New Yankee Stadium last season.

Do you consider yourself a religious person?

I believe in George Carlin. I believe he lives up in the sky and is staring down at me.. watching everything I do, every minute of every day.

Suspect in December car chase faces 10 charges, fails to show up for court appearance

Man... The only thing I have to say is this: that haircut is bada$$. This week I couldn't decide between getting a fade or a mullet, but from this day forward I will get the "Infamous Infante." That thing is wicked. It's like a bowlcut/.... something. I'm jealous.

Highway patrol program targeted drunk drivers on Lawrence streets

I saw at least four 75-85 year old's driving yesterday. That scared me to death. They are a much larger risk than someone who had a few brew's after work and might blow a .09. In my freshman year at college, I was on my way to finals at around 11:30am, and a man, approximately 79 years of age, blatantly t-boned me as he pulled out of Sonic on east 23rd street, with absolutely no traffic that might have rushed or blinded his apparent desire to drive into the side of my beloved '90 Cadillac. Fortunately, I wasn't injured, my professor was understanding and forgiving, and I got 2500 bucks out of the old bastard for being a damn idiot. So until they start making law's restricting blind 70+ year olds from driving, I don't want to hear a damn thing about drunk driving.

Nearly full moon, extra hour of partying, Halloween combine for possibly busy night for Lawrence police

The "nearly full mooon" addition to this article is pure idiocy. If their aim was to be cheesy, they achieved it. Unless they watch Silver Bullet and are huge Gary Busey fans, any mention of a "nearly full moon" belongs no where near this article... unless their only aim was to be as cheesy as possible, or, perhaps, to target a grown up with a 5-year old's sense of reality. People getting super-drunk, wearing skanky costumes, driving after a few too many shots of Johnnie Walker--yes, that is probably relevant--this full moon bs is just cheesy fluff that you would only find in the award winning Journal-World. Just dumb... dumb.

Overland Park man arrested in shooting incident near KU campus

"Meanwhile, Jorge Pizarro, a Lawrence resident, said he was a mere 75 feet away with friends at The Wheel, 507 W. 14th St. He said he heard at least three shots, which he described as sounding like firecrackers or a BB gun."

I'm sorry, but anyone who has ever fired a BB gun, or been around one that has been fired, knows that one makes virtually no sound at all. I can understand the shots sounding like firecrackers, but a BB gun? That is absurd. Jorge must watch too many movies and doesn't know what a real gun sounds like when fired (or didn't know, until early this morning).

It Isn't Christmas Until I Hear This Song....

I have many favorites including many of the classics such as Little Drummer Boy, The Christmas Song, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and many others. However, there are three that have always stood out to me and it is no coincidence that they are performed by three musical legends. One is "The Christmas Spirit" by Ray Charles. Anyone who is familiar with the movie Christmas Vacation will recognize this as the song playing when Clark is locked in his attic watching family videos from Christmas' past. The second is the one Ronda mentions, "And So This is Christmas", by John Lennon. For a Christmas song it does seem rather bleek, but it is a phenominal song, nonetheless. And the third that I cannot go without hearing during the Christmas season is "Wonderful Christmastime", by Paul McCartney.Also, contrary to the opinions of a few of you, I really enjoy Bing Crosby and David Bowie's collaboration in "Little Drummer Boy". I will agree that it does not really sound fluid, but I do not think fluidity was their intention. It almost reminds me of the "Dueling Banjos" of Christmas songs. Now I am no music major nor do I know much about music theory, but something about it just seems harmonic. Now I know that sounds contradictory--my saying it is not fluid, yet seems harmonic at the same time--but that is the only way I can describe it.
