How do you think the city of Lawrence handled the snowstorm?

My mother is 86 years-old. She paid some kid to shovel her driveway and her walk Then, the city blocks her in again with their man-made mountain of ice in front of her drive. She calls me and asks if it is OK to drive over it. I was screaming at her, "NO, IT'S NOT OK" cause she can't afford hearing aids that she needs...and I probably go a bad connection here in Hawaii, where I like to spend the off-season. She also can't afford a new muffler if she rips that off on the ice mountain. What's up with this unnecessary craziness? My mom is on a pretty tight budget and can't afford these extra bills. It's a sad day when she has to choose between food on the table and paying to clean up the city's mess.

Do you think cyberbullying is an issue?

Not for me obviously. Of course, when you're at the top, nobody can mess with you.
Are we talking about what the US & Israel do to Iran?

If you had to dress up as someone famous, who would it be and why?

I know a bunch of you are going to say, "Kenny Powers." I'm flattered, But, I can see why; I brought baseball back to what it is today. Everybody wants to be me. Let me tell you what, if you want to be me, do some push-ups...about a million of them.

What keeps you feeling young?

Every day, I get up and look in the mirror and I am so impressed with what I see. Not as impressed as everybody else when they look at my magnificence, but pretty darn impressed..
Just knowing that I am the high bar that everyone, older, everybody aspires to be. Being Kenny Powers, that is what keeps me feeling young.

What do you think schools can do to help prevent bullying?

You know, there's only so much room at the top; there can only be so many superstars. I try to look out for the regular people, the people that have no chance of being where I am, even if they use steroids, they will never be me, Kenny Powers...superstar.

Ah yes, I remember when I was five months old and mom let me carve the pumpkin. I'd waited my whole life...
