Death of Dallas

With the move of the Cotton Bowl out of Dallas, Fair Park’s pulse just got fainter. The run down, step-child part of Dallas is what it is, but why didn’t the people do a little more to keep one of its cash cows. I doubt the money made during the Texas fair/Red River Shootout/Cotton Bowl…

Why did February get short-changed?

Today is the last day of the month. Why? Why isn’t Friday or Saturday the last day? Why does February have just 28 days? From the way I understand it, if things had gone as planned, tomorrow would have been the last day of February. And that day, Feb. 29, would have been New Year’s…

American Crap Show

I’m tired of seeing it. American Idol is becoming the epitome of a TV show that has stay past its prime. I know a lot of people still watch, mainly 10-15 year olds, but cut the cord already. Its only good when people are getting humiliated right and left in the first few weeks. Its…

The things you can learn on a bathroom wall

All of my life I have been going to the bathroom and all my life, guys have been writing nasty stuff on bathroom walls. My first encounter with the f-word was on the wall of the boys’ bathroom at Austin Elementary School. I can understand why little boys in grade schools write such things. First…

Marijuana in california

Who knew it would turn out to be such a profitable business? I know marijuana is illegal, especially anything over 2 ounces, but what in the world are the people in California not doing. After reading an article in Rolling Stone yesterday, it seems weed is alive and well. Anything you ever dreamed about including/mixing…

Stretch Cunningham now Daddy Dearest on “24″

Don’t expect Phillip Bauer to get any votes for “father of the year.? First off, he murders his son Graem with a full dose of hyoscine-penothal. Then he takes his grandson Josh hostage and threatens to kill him if his daughter-in-law (dead son’s wife Marilyn) doesn’t lead his second son to a house in which…

Shaved head

Britney Spears shaved her head. Sorry, but she has finally entered the 6 ft area of the crazy pool. She isn’t exactly Sigeorney Weaver or Shinado Conner. She must really need attention. I think the papparazzi photos of her bejingo was enough attention. She must have want to direct the cameras somewhere else.

Come on, C.W., close Carl’s Jr.

My editor, Carroll Wilson, has gained the reputation as a “restaurant murderer.? He supposedly kicked the living chalupa out of Ruby Tequila and is now out to slam the door on one Taco Bell location. So, C.W., while you are at it, would you please stick a knife in Carl’s Jr? My mama and daddy…

My son

Well the day has come and gone. On February 11 at 1 a.m., my son, Lennox James, was born. What a joy. I couldn’t imagine a better baby to have. I’m sure every parent feels that way, but wow, what a kid. The experience was the “Texas Giant” of Six Flags’ roller coasters. Up and…

Hooters finally coming to Hooterville Falls

If you can really believe everything you read in our paper, Hooterville Falls will soon have its very own Hooters. They said it couldn’t happen: “Those Baptists won’t stand for it.? “The feminists will protest it.?? “Hooterville doesn’t have enough hot chicks with hooters.? “Decatur will get a Hooters before we do.? Well, I’m officially…

Love is in the air; or is that just smog?

Not long after my daughter joined the “boyfriend a day? club in junior high school, she asked me “what is love?? That’s about like asking Sonny Bono how to ski. Or Wiley Post how to fly. I was an “official? three-time loser at the time — and that’s just counting three marriages. I had “loved?…

Why can’t I have a concubine?

When I was a kid, nobody except us kids ever talked about sex. It was hush-hush at home. It was hush-hush in school. And it was most certainly hush-hush in church. The preacher not only didn’t talk about sex, he probably never had sex. And if he did, he wore a suit and tie while…

The golden oldie Grammys

I didn’t watch the Grammys last night. That’s 47 in a row I have now missed. It’s not that I don’t love music, it’s just that I don’t know the songs or the singers or the bands anymore. Sorry, but I wouldn’t walk across the street to see Justin Timberlake. Never heard of the Flaming…

Bye Anna Nicole

You voluptuous qualities will be missed. I saw a tasty movie — on my free time — that you did a long, long time ago. You know, when you where skinny, and before you were a blimp. But I have a conspiracy theory or two. You inherited a fortune, or something close to a third-world…

He’s gay, get over it

It pains me to write this blog, because it will only expose an idea I want to die a painful death. But, I figured someone needed to set you straight – LZ Granderson. (Who goes by initials professionally nowadays anyway?) You wrote a insightful article for ESPN.com and I don’t think you could be more…

Anna Nicole never became “the next Marilyn”

Norma Jean and Vickie Lynn did have some things in common. They were both blondes. They were both in movies. They were both Playboy centerfolds. They’re both dead. Norma Jean Baker — aka Marilyn Monroe — died at age 36 of a drug overdose. Vickie Lynn Hogan — aka Anna Nicole Smith — was 39…
