As is often the case, when in need of a post, browsing through the morning newspaper does the trick. Yes indeed, this morning, there were all kinds of events and issues waiting for my deft analysis.
Of course in Ohio, sports dominates the news. I could write about LeBron James, the former Cleveland Cavalier, and his supposed swan dive (I am writing about basketball and not high diving) in the NBA finals. As a Miami Heat player he is taking a lot of heat. The problem is I could care less about LeBron, and basketball for that matter, in spite of the Governor who saw fit to make the Dallas Mavericks and their fans honorary Ohioans. Fortunately it is only for today.
Then there is the football scandal at Ohio State University. People are actually acting like the reputation of an institution of higher learning has been stained. Again I must take a bye. I always thought that OSU was a football factory masquerading as a university. I don't see why some football players selling memorabilia for tattoos is so bad. If they had attended their economics class they would have learned that getting into a hedge fund was more profitable.
I can't ignore Weiner and his sexting problems. On the other hand I can.
The Republican Presidential Candidate debate in New Hampshire? There is probably enough material there for at least ten posts. Big problem! I did not watch the debate or read about it this morning. The comic pages were much more informative.
The Indians June swoon would make for a good post but every time I start writing about these overachievers who have suddenly become underachievers, the tears start flowing. Damn Yankees!
