I got a basketball jones oh baby...ooo, oooo...
Dear Coach: Please, please don't let our team wear those hideous shorts with that zubaz look thing. It is awful. It would make the whole team look like a Big Bang reject.
I noticed a piece of news from the current legislative session. Wichita Senator Mike McConnell is introducing a bill that would require the Jayhawks to play the Shockers in basketball and other sports. The reasoning being it is a win/win for Kansas and promotes our proud tradition and fills the building. Frankly, I have not noticed any problems with filling our Field House for games. But think about this, our state has huge budget problems, a whack tax code that our Governor wants to make even worse, battles over school funding and judiciary appointment processes...and all this guy wants to talk about is sticking the legislative nose someplace it has no business being? Leave the schedule to the schools.
With all of our State House issues do you think it is a good idea to waste valuable time with such a piece of legislative nonsense? And is this who Wichita sent to the State Senate instead of Jean Schodorf? Oh lord help us, I think we can all see whats the matter with Kansas on days like this.
It might be easier to find Bigfoot than you think. I just saw where the Animal Planet show "Finding Bigfoot" is planning an event in the Wichita area and their first townhall meeting is full up. I imagine there will be plenty of good stories. Funny thing about all this, I also find that apparently there are more Bigfoot sightings in Kansas then there are cases of voter fraud. Do you think Bobo the Bigfoot Hunter is going to upstage Kris Kobach? Who do you think would win if they had a celebrity death match? I suppose this diversion is just entertainment for the masses, I mean voter fraud allegations and bigfoot sightings, they are on an even par. With all the strife and problems we face daily how could life go on without these mindless diversions to get our eye off the eight ball? And just how in the world..how in the world do they get people to believe in such hoaxes and scams...I mean seriously, voter fraud? Bigfoot? This is Kansas for crying out loud. We are supposed to be a mindful and level headed bunch of people. Tell us your Bigfoot story...or your voter fraud story...or your Kris Kobach story. We're always up for a good yarn.
Now that the election is over, can Mr. Brownback get on with the business of helping the Insurance Commissioner create a viable and working health exchange? He used the excuse of burying his head in the sand until the election. Well Mr. DoNothing Governor, that is past and the time is running out. The time of complaining and ignoring the Affordable Care Act is over and the time to make it work is here. Gear up and get with the program Sammy boy or please, go get another job. Or as your boss I will take exception and work with the rest of the co-bosses and fire you.
Why is it, when I click between articles, that sometimes the most discussed list will come up with a bunch of "chat with so and so"? I would think the Sven references would have all been packed up and put away deep in the archives of never never land. Come guys, a whole list of those chat with deals?
Why? What's the deal here?
Have you ever felt like someone is looking at you? That strange feeling of someone staring right through you with those empty, hollow eyes.
I am saddened by the loss of Andy Griffith. Of the nine million times I have watched the wisdom of Andy. Everything from Romeo and Juliet with the Wakefields and Carters to out thinkin the Darlins, which weren't tough at all. The conversation with Floyd out in front of the barber shop about the weather. "No Floyd. Calvin Coolidge didn't say that". Gomer doing favors for the man that saved his life. Talking dogs. Escape convicts. I'm sure many of us can relate. Farewell Andy. And Gomer, get that gun outta your mouth.
Now I will tell you...sometimes we got to do we we got to do. I gots a cousin in Oklahoma that will stick his arm up some hole....I do better with the other.
OK, I need some help to understand something I heard on the radio. I listened to a piece about the Mormon Church doing some kind of symbolic baptism of Jewish people that died during World War II at the hands of the Nazis. Apparently from what I gathered the Jewish community doesn't think much of this practice and I can understand that part. What I don't get is why do the Mormons bother with this practice? What do they hope to get out of it? Why does one group, wholly uninvited, conduct some symbolic ritual in the name of dead people from another group? Anybody?
What about scary stuff? Can anybody tell me if there really is a portal to hell in the Stull cemetery? Where is Stull? What happens in the alleged Stull cemetery at midnight? I had a dream last night about Stull and I don't even know what it is. Maybe the chip in my head is running low. So, what's the deal man?
