cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
Super “Super Bowl” Game
My head told me that the Colts would win, but my heart hoped for the Saints to pull it out. This Super Bowl game was actually fun to watch, in addition to the hyped commercials we were nearly all up for as the day unfolded.
I imagine the crowds and the celebration on
It is difficult to beat the Clydesdales so far as the commercials are concerned, and the Saints were the better team yesterday.
G’town Boys’ Hoops
Our high school boys’ basketball program promised to be in a re-building pattern this season with Coach Schowalter starting four sophomores. And it appeared that would be the case for a couple of games.
But…that team has coalesced into a formidable conference competitor. Now tied for the lead after having been thought to be out of the race, they are giving us something for which to look forward as winter continues its grasp.
Bipartisan Health Care
President Obama has extended the olive branch to the Republicans in the form of his invitation to a half-day, televised White House meeting on February 25th.
Has he finally gotten the message? Or is this simply politics as usual?
Unfortunately, this strikes me, cynical as I am, as nothing more than an elaborate scheme to either trap the Republicans in a room with the cameras on while he upbraids them for a paucity of ideas, or as the vehicle the Democrats use to continue their “party of ‘No’” theme if the Republicans refuse to be the main course that day.
He has really tipped his hand already when he says that this conference will not be a ‘re-start’ but a ‘continuation’ of the mythical “debate”.
How many people were able to read the number “44” in the title? Do we still teach Roman numerals? Is this now relegated to the scrap heap as useless?
Maybe it is simply ‘quaint’ today but it is fun to stop and remember how this system was constructed using letter symbols rather than number symbols.
Village President Candidate Forum
Remember that our candidates for the Village President position will be on the dais on Tuesday evening at 6:30PM at the Village Hall. The candidates in this race for the primary election included Dean Wolter (current Trustee), Jim Langer (former Trustee) and Charlie Hargan (former President).
The customary campaign signs have begun to be noticed around the community and those three will become two in short order.
