Saturday Evening News Roundup

I cannot believe the Peyton Place that’s going on in Orlando. Stan Van Gundy and Dwight Howard are feuding like an old married couple.

Did you see Phil Mickelson today at the Masters? Simply an amazing performance.

Weak jobs report is somewhat disappointing, but the economy still added jobs. 120,000 new jobs are nothing to sneeze at. Basically, as I see it, this job report underscores what we already know, that the economy is not up to full strength. The economy is still fragile.

In Wisconsin, Kelly Nickolaus has stepped down, or step aside, as she seems to have a disturbing habit of screwing up elections.

Can someone explain to me how Warren Sapp can be broke? He is currently filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

It is amazing that there weren’t more injuries and several deaths when a Navy jet crashed into an apartment building.

American Legislative Exchange Council has been exposed. Please read about the extensive legislative garbage, anti-American, pro-corporation garbage – that is The American Legislative Exchange Council.

I’m having extremely difficult time keeping up with all the twists and turns in the Rupert Murdoch scandal. It appears that Sky News has been caught hacking into e-mail accounts. Despicable.

I continue to be amazed at how conservatives respond to our president, Barack Obama. Barack Obama has done something that presidents throughout history have done, which is to call out the Supreme Court. That it’s an effort to influence the court, there is no doubt. Yet, for some reason, the fifth circuit court is under some sort of delusion that our president would defy the Supreme Court.

Torii Hunter, major league baseball player, had a little confrontation with the police the other night when his home security system went off. The good news is that everything ended well. Nobody has hard feelings. Nobody’s upset.

I have no idea what this Tyler Perry thing is all about. He was being chased by somebody and then was stopped by the cops. Now, he says that the cops didn’t treat him right. Okay. If he says it I’ll buy it for now. It sounds like something from the TV show Police Squad.

Staying on the race theme, it appears that John Derbyshire has been fired from the National Review for writing a wandering article that had something to do with race. Every now and then, when you think that you are going to write something clever on race, you should skip it. Mr. Derbyshire should have seen what happened to MJB and learned for her mistake.

I didn’t like Thomas Kinkade’s stuff. I thought that it was shallow and overly sentimental (no, that’s not the right word), hokey and over-the-top. Yet, I know there was a large group of Americans who absolutely loved his paintings. He died of “natural causes” at the age of 54. Just between you and me, you don’t die of natural causes at age 54. What the hell are natural causes? A heart attack? A stroke? Well, if they are the cause, then say that. Don’t say “natural causes,” because that simply doesn’t mean anything.
