Nobody asked me, but --
. . .One local church has created a noise nuisance and spurs all pleas to abate same. Perhaps the powers that be at the place might do well to heed Matthew 7:12 and Mark 12:31.
. . .If you want to see what we're up against, check the TV for those "judge" programs. We're actually in more trouble than folks might realize. Whew!
. . .One terrible, horrifying notion to some is that there may be no such place as hell, after all.
. . .Somebody ought to take old Bob McNamara out and give the merciful coup de grace. This bum now bloviates every chance he gets over Vietnam stuff after having admitted that he KNEW at the time, in the 1960s, that he was making bad decision. He is a murderer, why mince words?
. . .American jurisprudence has notched another principle -- wealthy celebrities go free, whether it is murder or child homosexual rape.
. . .If you are wondering what a "yenta" is, check out the "Judge Judy" program on channel 13 in the afternoon.
. . .My learned friend observes -- "What is strange about ‘Deep Throat' is that Republicans broke into the Watergate hotel to see what the Democrats were up to. You see, back in those days Democrats actually had ideas worth stealing."
. . .I loved baseball and its host of characters and football made my heart beat fast and brought emotions close to (and sometimes through) the surface, but the sport that was the easiest and most enjoyable to cover was golf.
. . .People in Largo -- citizens and officials -- ought to step back one day and contemplate the excellent fellow they have in their city manager. Steve Stanton has a steel trap mind, is a brilliant administrator, expert at what he does and maybe under-appreciated except by those who really know him. Also, he is a good guy.
. . .Imagine my surprise to learn that Tommy Bolt is still alive and kicking. What a great character he was and one of the most enjoyable sports figures it was my great fortune to know and cover. Keep going, Tommy!
. . .Would you like to be living your life with the knowledge that you unwarrentedly ruined another man's life for no good reason? How can someone blithely go on with life having created that kind of horror? It beats me. Hey, true story.
. . .How do they figure Nascar racing is a sport? There is nothing sport-like or athletic about it. It is an event (a boring event, to be sure, but merely an event which attracts people who are hoping to see flaming, spectacular death).
. . .And speaking of Nascar, I remember how Ronnie Joyce and I were importuned by a guy named Bill France to give some ink to the car racing he was promoting what? a million years ago? It sure has growed, as ole Bodie would have said.
. . .Mike Petrucelli is throwing his hat in the ring hoping to succeed Everett Rice in the Legislature. Rice will seek the attorney general post being vacated by Charlie Crist who will run for governor. Yes, the political season is here again -- in fact, it never ends, right?
. . .Mary Grizzle et famille are leaving Belleair Shore which proves, beyond any doubt, that nothing is permanent. The Grizzles have been there for what, 50 years?
. . .How outraged would the public be if it knew that the president of the United States was sharing a bimbo girl friend with a leading Mafioso? Would the fit be hitting the shan? It happened once -- sub rosa, of course.
. . .Is there any city, town, hamlet, village in the country where taxes are going down? We know one -- Belleair Shore, where careful management and keeping all hands happy have resulted in a descending -- yes, descending -- millage rate. Kudos to Mayor John Robertson and commission.
