Written by  {ga=EdStaton}

staton1Hornets superstar Chris Paul is concerned about the future of a team he decided to remain with. Prospective owner Gary Chouest reportedly has decided not to buy the team from George Shinn. It looks like Shinn will have to hold on to the franchise. 

 

"It's all bad," said Paul after his Hornets were thrashed like an overmatched high school team, 135-81, by the Orlando Magic. "It's definitely a concern, a concern on how we react," said Paul, who gave no indication Sunday even in a laughable loss, that he was anything but committed to the Hornets.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech.
