DustusAdamIt’s not “reality” TV when five cameras follow you and you’re directed to re-do your botched lines.

If you discard cigarette butts into an ashtray—shouldn’t it be called an ass-tray?

Yoga helps my breathing, core, and mental flexibility.

Go Red Wings! rah-rah

I want the Chicago Cubs to beat the Yankees in the World Series. Then in the following post-season I want the Tigers to beat the Phillies.

Advice to college students… No matter if it seems like a good idea at the time, don’t ever drink a beer milkshake. You may as well sleep in the bathroom.

I respect Puff Daddy for running the NYC Marathon. I ran a half-marathon last September. This year I hope to run the one in Detroit .

Knoxville, Tennessee (my beloved Rocky Top, land of James Agee, Cormac, & profuse orange)… You’ve earned the name KNOXVEGAS because you’re really an amazing place to party…just don’t bring up The World’s Fair. Instead, just mention the name Peyton Manning!

Teacher Headline: 5th-grade boy proposes book report on breast exams

Twitter is an amazing place for non-airheads

Belated Thanks to Janet Jackson for popularizing the term “equipment malfunction”—and special thanks to Viagra for trying to eliminate it!

(psst…Hey Buddy, that’s socialism)
Oh, okay. I guess my heart wants to help people suffering in their daily lives rather than executives whose fortunes are slightly downsized. That does not make me a socialist. I’m not a Marxist because I’m a big fan of Groucho (and the way Harpo and Chico play music). In fact, despite a post-modern writing style I’m a bit of a pragmatist, who really knows? I’m not a big fan of intellectual labels. If you go to Buy Books on the Web, you can purchase High School Asylum! Though the virtue of capitalism is not exactly an author’s answered prayer, it is a “trying” system that rewards bold genius, the essence of effort, and in some cases dumb luck.
