Something Stinks

By: scottslemmons | Blog: Hero Sandwich

As soon as I saw this cover, I knew I'd have to post it, just for frequent commenter Swampy, who I know loves both the Hulk and catastrophically crude flatulence jokes. Yes indeed, Hulk can't fight gas, just as he can't fight his love of convenience store burritos. And Darkhawk Nighthawk looks like he bore the full brunt of that backblast...

One would hope that science, education, and national security would be above politics.  As we relearn daily, they are not. On Monday President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order removing the limitations placed on embryonic stem cell research by President George W. Bush.  This will effectively open the coffers of borrowed and printed Federal cash to those pursuing politically correct embryonic stem cell research.

Let's try it again: Centennial Closing Concert tickets on sale!

By: Anonymous | Blog: Center Stage

Please just disregard the blog I began earlier about the Lubbock Centennial's Closing Concert.I started the small announcement when I was told some of the entertainers we could expect to see at the Centennial Closing -- just as a reminder that the show date is sneaking up on us.But then other entertainers would send me an e-mail and say, "Hey man, I'll be there, too!" and I would re-edit the original announcement to fit them in.

By: Anonymous | Blog: Center Stage

All kidding aside....Look for the WWE, aka World Wrestling Entertainment, to make a return appearance in Lubbock on Saturday -- and to attract a crowd.Even Shelly, a woman cutting my hair, was asking me who would be wrestling at this event. She told me that she already has purchased tickets to the WWE as a very special gift for her son.You want details?

'Paul Bullock Encore' planned for Friday at Tornado Gallery

By: Anonymous | Blog: Center Stage

For one reason or another, there have been three or four events (one being a play) thus far in 2009 that I was forced to miss -- and which I regret missing to this very day. And indeed, one was street poet Paul Bullock's return to the spotlight with his Feb. 28 concert at the Tornado Gallery.I had interviewed Paul in advance; I had planned to be present on Feb. 28. Those plans had to change.

Obama’s Dangerous Dancing With the Russian Bear

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

President Barack Obama appears to be again over his head in dealing with the Russians. Obama is fixated on conciliation and appeasement as the foundation of diplomacy for the United States.  Obama does not appear to understand the essential wisdom of negotiating from the strength of a full arsenal.
