beast-mole-compressedOur modest attempt at literature is not only intended to inform but to educate our readers. Today’s lesson is about certain Sporting Absolutes that periodically arise with the persistence and joy of Type A flu. These are things that are bad but people in and around the games persist in doing them anyway. For example, a Sporting Absolute with local impact is: Never wear the opponent’s colors into LSU’s Tiger Stadium. You will be abused, threatened and possibly assaulted. That one comes from personal experience.

White House Washington-compressedby Tom Aswell, Publisher of the Louisiana Voice

To call Gov. Bobby Jindal disingenuous would be to belabor the obvious. The evidence is there in plain view for everyone to see: his painfully patronizing platitudes, designed to appeal to his ever-shrinking core base, induce involuntary winces of embarrassment not only from his critics, of which there are many, but from objective observers as well.

Southern U. invites Obama's Minister of Hate, Rev. Wright to Louisiana campus

JeremiahWright-compressedJust days after a group of evangelical Christians held an event on the LSU campus that attracted undue criticism, a state university has announced that they will feature a preacher of vile hatred on their campus. Yesterday, it was revealed that Southern University will have Rev. Jeremiah Wright address their students on February 19 at the Cotillion Ballroom.

Wright was the former spiritual adviser to President Obama, who was practically banished from public view after his embarrassing speeches were discovered.

During his 36 years as the Pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois, Wright preached sermons filled with anti-white, anti-Jew and anti-American messages. He claimed that America's "chickens" were coming home to roost after the 9/11 attacks. In a 2003 sermon, he thundered that the government "wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people."

Here's hoping the Patriots Lynch the Seahawks in Superbowl

YUCK1I might be a dinosaur in things such as this, but does anybody else take offense at  Marshawn Lynch’s childish actions at Super Bowl Media Day this week? The Seattle running back burnished his own thuggish reputation by sitting on his platform for less than five minutes, refusing to say anything more than: “I’m only here so I don’t get fined.” He made the point over and over, repeating that phrase or variations of it a total of 29 times, then abruptly departed when his cellphone rang.
