Will be gone to our preseason "coaches' retreat" until Thursday.
Stay out of trouble.
A lot of scandal while we were at the coaching clinic:
I am entertained by Ann Coulter. She is a leftist's nightmare - something that should not exist - an attractive woman who is a true-believing conservative who will not shut up and has no fear - she'll say anything to win an argument. Her latest bestseller, Treason, accuses the Democratic Party of being treasonous - since World War II. She has actually led some conservative/libertarians to question her on this one - (Frontpage.com, Andrew Sullivan). She doesn't care.
Baseball: It seems to me that Dontrelle Willis should have been on the NL All-star Team: rookie, 8-1 with a 2.13 ERA in 11 Major League starts, high leg kick, great attitude. He has said all the right things about being left off by Dusty Baker.
But in truth I find that the older I get, the less & less I care about the All-Star game. ESPN has eliminated the fact that I never saw AL guys except for every other Saturday & All-Star games. Who really cares anymore?
When government people who don't really know what they're doing or don't really care about Americans' privacy (i.e.- Total Information Awareness) tick off smart people who do know what they're doing, you get things like this - Government Information Awareness. Oh my... (in Wired).
I remember him as the king of the diving catch for the Crimson Tide. Now Joey Jones is one of the top coaches in Alabama High School Football. His Mountainbrook team beat us (Austin) in the 1st round of last year's playoffs. I talked to him before the game & he was particularly nice, considering the circumstances. He'll be at Alabama eventually, mark it down.
Michael Kinsley finally has a good idea - Abolish Marriage - Let's really get the government out of our bedrooms.
