GO READ THE BLOG POSTING BELOW THIS ONE And you'll be up to speed on what's happening with the C-J's token conservative columnist. People have been forwarding me emails they've gotten in response to complaints made to Pam Platt. They make it hard to feel badly when the C-J is reduced to a thrice weekly tabloid.
MAKER'S MARK IS SORRY And they aren't going to be watering down the booze. Whoever thought this was a good idea should probably be demoted, at a minimum. I'm guessing it wasn't the Samuels who made this call. But never fear, the New Coke moment is over before it gets started...but if you drink Maker's I'd stock up now. They are seriously are gonna run out.
STRONG LANGUAGE HURT SOME FEELINGS The JCPS Board didn't much appreciate Education Commissioner Terry Holliday calling out JCPS for it's epic failures. They sent a message back. Unfortunately, the test scores definitely show Commissioner Holliday has the upper hand. And by chastising the Commish for not be more collaborative, they seem to forget they've rejected several options out of hand that could have made a difference.
Toni Konz has a follow up on how the "unified" statement from the School Board came to be. Read the post David Jones, jr. made on his facebook page. I'm beginning to warm up to him.
I CAN'T IMAGINE WHY THERE SEEMS TO BE MEDIA BIAS Our own Senator Rand Paul had a wonderful media bias story over the weekend. In their desperation to continue making Rand Paul seem like a kook, the AP pushed a story out that was exactly the opposite of the truth. But hey, they ARE trying to retract it. I wonder how many times it gets reprinted before it is fully retracted.
THE KING OF LIBERALS IS A RACIST. AND A JERK. I love stories involving Alec Baldwin. Partly because he's such a pompous ass it's fun to read about him making a fool of himself. But partly because the complete lack of condemnation from those on the Left reminds me of the hypocrisy tea they must drink every day. I wonder if he will be roundly censured like Mel Gibson was when he made outrageous anti-Semitic comments. But then again, ONLY calling a retired NYPD cop who now works as a photog an ex drug dealer probably is a compliment in the world of hard core Lefties.
THIS BLOG IS CRASS AND FULL OF BAD LANGUAGE But makes some excellent points about liberlism vs. gun control. You've been warned about the bad language. If it offends you, don't click here.
