Random Thoughts 3/21/11

  • Balls of fire shooting into the air!!!  Check out this "citizen journalism" that a guy recorded and edited on his iPhone and iPad.  
  • Steve Sabol, the head of NFL Films, collapsed and was hospitalized in Kansas City a couple of weeks ago.  It turns out that he has a brain tumor and will undergo radiation and chemo.  I've always been a huge fan of "NFL Films Presents" and will pray he gets better quick.
  • So we got involved in another war, killing brown-skinned people from above with an inconsistent application of our "principles."  Why Libya and not Bahrain or Saudi Arabia?  Didn't we move on from this kind of American Imperialism?  I thought only evil Republicans did this kind of thing.
  • "The President does not have the power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation."  Senator Barack Obama, December 2007.  The man has his principles.
  • Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!  The Jayhawks are in the Sweet 16 again!  And they have an easy path, potentially making it all the way to the championship game without having played any team seeded higher than an 8!
  • Our two oldest boys had an overnight stay at a friend's house.  How weird not to have them here!  When I was driving them back, Tanner said, "They let us sleep on mattresses!  That doesn't usually happen."  What?  You sleep on a mattress every night, I think.
  • How much money does it cost Missouri to keep a coach that is 1-10 against arch-rival Kansas?  Looks like about $2 million per year.
