Odds and Ends

Several subjects have garnered my attention lately. On their own, they didn’t warrant a full-fledged blog post. Nevertheless, I just couldn’t let them pass without further comment. So here goes nothing ... or a little bit of something.

News Item: A Navy commander lost his command for previously broadcasting raunchy videos featuring homophobic and sexist comments and inappropriate images. The videos were intended to be a lighthearted way to boost the ship’s morale.

Comment: When did Michael Scott join the military?

News Item: Connecticut football Head Coach Randy Edsall recently accepted the same position at the University of Maryland.

Comment: Wonder if Edsall interviewed in a hoodie? Seriously, this guy has got to step up his wardrobe, as do a host of other college coaches. I hate to say it, but I’m looking at you too Charlie Strong. Take a page from the great Howard Schellenberger, who always wears a suit and a tie on the sidelines, even in a rain or snowstorm.

News Item: After missing two straight weeks for the holidays, the local recyclers left early this week, saying their trucks were too full.

Comment: Time for another Dale Moss story.

News Item: The ferry from Jeffersonville to Louisville for University of Louisville basketball games has been cancelled due to a lack of interest.

Comment: Please come back. I’ll never leave you again. I promise.

News Item: In just one week on Facebook, my 13-year-old son accumulated far more followers than I could ever think of getting.

Comment: At least he’s not on Twitter.
