Drew Brees usually is the center of attention. He is synonymous with the New Orleans Saints during the season. Now, the future of the New Orleans Saints and some of its star players are focused upon what he and the management might do.
If the Saints have to put the franchise tag on Brees, it has been reported that guard Carl Nicks likely will depart along with wide receiver Marques Colston, cornerback Tracy Porter and wide receiver Robert Meachem--sort of a new spinoff called "Gone with the Brees". Without doubt, the fate of the New Orleans Saints lies with the man who has taken them to the NFL land of milk and honey.
Barack Obama is not a Democrat. Nor are most of the Senators and Congress persons who call themselves such. I know what a Democrat is, and these men – and they are largely men - collect almost $200,000 yearly, not representing any of the 99%.
Who won the Arizona CNN debate last night?

The approval rate for members of Congress seems to be in free call. Few constituents approve of the dysfunction taking place in the nation’s capital. Just 10 years ago, Congress had an approval rating of 65%. But no more. The most recent Harris and CBS polls show approval rates dropping to an all-time low of 9%. Like the guy sings in the Limbo Rock song, “How low can you go?” Let me tell you just how bad it is. More Americans approve of polygamy than they do of Congress in Washington.
“Will she or won’t she?” That is the question most often asked before each performance of Richard Strauss’ one-act opera, SALOME.
Will the title character take it ALL off at the conclusion of the opera’s signature “Dance of the Seven Veils”? Three sopranos in recent times already HAVE: Americans Catherine Malfitano and Maria Ewing and Finland’s Karita Mattila, and their decision to do so probably made them more famous than their actual singing.
Before Darren Sproles, the Saints had Reggie Bush, whose career had been disappointing given the massive hype with which he entered the NFL, and drafted second over-all.
Is the New Orleans Saints two-time Pro Bowler, Carl Nicks—“nicked off” that he would be willing to depart the Drew Brees-led football team for perhaps, “greener pastures”?
