Bond referendum for sports complex

Finally we have a market-driven proposal! This is an excellent way to finance the proposed sports complex project because, if passed, people must vote with their wallet, which raises the bar significantly on the issue of moving forward with the sports complex. It is one thing for people to vote without seriously thinking about: (1) the method of finance directly affecting them, and, (2) having a well-researched, cold-blooded, accountable assessment of the probability of success.

A news legend

Back in the early 1960s, the journalism surrounding politicians and famous figures was often adoring and non-controversial -- something a public relations expert might dream up. Movie stars and professional athletes were always pictured as happy and devoted to their families, although there was probably nearly as much fooling around back then as now. And political figures were smilingly looked upon as people who had nothing more than the good of the country in their hearts. President John F. Kennedy's multiple dalliances were well known but never reported.

The quirky English language

English varies greatly from state to state and location to location. It varies when talking with friends or when speaking before an audience. Some of it is almost unintelligible for the novice, such as Gullah. The Southern drawl differs from the Yankee vernacular. Rarely does the person speaking recognize the difference for himself. For example, the Australians told me how charming my accent was. When I returned the compliment, some other tourists from the north said, "You really told them off, having no idea I could have said the same to them. When traveling, I have been mistaken for English ...

The judicial activism wars

WASHINGTON -- Last week I chided President Obama for his remarks on the Supreme Court and the role of "unelected" judges. The president, wisely, has since chosen to clarify his statement, and express his (correct) view -- that courts should be hesitant to overturn acts of Congress -- in a much more appropriate way. Now there's an example of problematic behavior coming from the judicial branch, with a federal appeals court going out of its way to pick a fight with the president. Talk about judicial activism -- this is a judicial temper tantrum.
