Opinions in the Shorts: Vol. 56

On a Sincere Cheer
Although the Olympics is turning into a distant memory, I still smile when thinking about Penguin fans giving Buffalo/U.S. goalie Ryan Miller a louder ovation than their own, but Canadian player, Sidney Crosby.

On Construction-Area Driving
Spring is upon us also means the start of the highway construction season in Ohio. One thing for sure – I do not like driving on an interstate with concrete barrier walls on my left.

By the way, I recently had a rental car on a trip with a push-button starter – my first experience with that keyless function.

On a Massage Table
A friend of mine is embarking on a new career as a massage therapist. I do look forward to the part of his training where he has to practice. As part of the process, he has to purchase his own massage table and considering the one with the breast openings. Now I was picturing the opening going all the way through the table … but in actuality is is holes in the padding.

On Political Action Money
Many politicians sponsor their own political action committee (PAC). These men and women of nobility use the money to fund campaigns of candidates in their party in other districts.

Is anyone surprise that four of the largest PACS are sponsored by the 4 highest ranking people in the House of Representatives? Yep – Mrs. Pelosi, Mr. Boehner, and their lieutenants (Mr. Hoyer and Mr. Cantor respectively lead the way.

Let’s see – I’ll give you money to help you get elected so you can vote for me in a leadership position and follow my lead. Yet please many still wonder what is wrong in Washington.

On a Commercial
I just saw a commercial against the health insurance bill that concluded with “Put our interests before special interests.” Of course the commercial was paid for by a special interest group.

On Spring Training Time
Spring training means baseball’s opening day is approaching. Not only is a special and celebrated day in Cincinnati, it is the start of the national pastime. Become of time constrains, I may fore-go providing my monthly analysis of the Reds. On the other hand, my all-time teams (based on first names) will continue.

On the Madness
Day 1 of March Madness brought forth the normal unpredictability!

  1. I agree with you about The Pens giving Miller a loud ovation, Funny part was they booed the replay of Crosby’s goal before they cheered him, I have seen several other Fans in other cities cheer the Olympic Players.

    One other serious note, Did you see this story about that Dear Sean Hannity and his Freedom Concerts raising money for our troops and how generous his charity is,

    • Larry,
      Wow … thanks for the Hannity link. Since I don’t watch or listen to his shows, I didn’t know about the Freedom Concerts. Interestingly, the person who wrote the story is also conservative (which is fine), but seems she has a integrity.
      Thanks for stopping by.
