Feb 28th 2011 11:01AM Yeah Charlie, you're right; you're the most unique person who has ever graced our good earth. Face it, the only thing more consistently guttural than Charlie's show is his life.
Dec 29th 2010 9:38PM Vick didn't go to Federal Prison for killing dogs. He went for operating a criminal enterprise. Tucker Carlson is the perfect example of someone who has been educated beyond his intelligence. Of course animal cruelty is wrong, but I suspect the hog who was slaughtered so a part of its flesh could sizzle atop the pizza I had this evening wouldn't see much difference between the value of its life verses that of a dog.
Nov 24th 2010 11:21AM Reminds me of Mel Gibson.
Nov 12th 2010 1:26PM While I accept Sajak's mea culpa for what it's worth, it's a bit of stretch on Sajak's part to think that basic cable viewers would be spared the myopic, sanctimonious screed of that sicko Olbermann, if only he (Sajak) had not invited Olbermanm onto his show that fateful night in 1989.
Feb 19th 2010 4:07PM Those who want to let him off the hook, cry it out on Oprah or subject himself to some bare-his-soul question-and-answer press conference with the media sharks are all missing the point: there really isn't much to say when you're a guy who has had at least 14 different flings with other women over the course of a six-year marriage.
Feb 8th 2010 6:50PM The entire Teutul clan forgot what made the show interesting. Viewers don't want to watch Mikey play at his piano recital, or see Paul Jr. redesign a Coleman grill. For that matter, watching another custom bike get built gets old too. It was the interaction between family members that made the show interesting. What has happened this last season is sort of like watching a rock band break up to pursue solo careers. Usually the band is better as a group than they are as individuals.
Jan 5th 2010 3:38PM Finally! (Although this story scratches the surface) people are beginning to question the way the Salvation Army spends and accounts for the money it receives. While SA officials claim the money they are spending on luxury housing doesn’t come from kettle donations or thrift store revenues, there is a side to some officials from this organization who know how to personally capitalize on the good will of strangers, big time!
However, I don’t think questionable practices exist only at the top of the organization. The SA has enjoyed the best PR in the world.
But, I'm someone who likes to browse thrift stores, and I realized a long time ago there is no end to the amount of money and product that SA employees can, potentially, make disappear. I can recall several years ago, a store manager who would exit and enter the building carrying a duffle bag. (What was that about?) Granted a certain percentage of the stuff in the stores belongs in a dumpster, but, by the same token a lot of it still has value.
However, because virtually everything is given to them, there is no reason to do an inventory. Monitoring the cash registers in the thrift stores I've visited is primitive at best. I have often seen more than one person ring up the same register without auditing the cash draw to check of over and short amounts. And there is no centralized computer system to track register activity.
Meanwhile in many communities, the Salvation Army thrift stores, are nearly as packed as the local WalMart on a Saturday afternoon.
And the most amazing part of the story is that they get so much free stuff that they wholesale nearly as much as they retail.
I truly believe there is a lot more to this story.
Dec 15th 2009 9:51AM Once again, Mariotti used up a lot of digital ink to state the obvious: Suffice to say, Tiger Woods will top the leader board in a major tournament long before he's on top of his wife in the marital bed.
Dec 10th 2009 3:47PM Terence Moore’s attitude is exactly the reason why black people still suffer from the highest crime rate, the highest rate of unwed mothers, the lowest test scores and the lowest income.
Moore writes, “…other [black] athletes had one of the world's most supportive casts. They had an overwhelming number of folks in the African-American community standing firmly and loudly behind them -- no matter what.”
I hate to break it to you Mr. Moore, at a certain point, the black community is going to have to speak out against and hold accountable those among them who do wrong. And Tiger Woods did really wrong. He didn’t merely commit a “transgression.” He is serial philander, a cad, a lounge lizard, a man who apparently has never tried to keep his marriage vows, even when his wife was pregnant.
If you (Terence Moore) feel, that under different circumstance you could stick up for Tiger, than you are morally bankrupt too. Black people shouldn’t “care less” as was stated. Black people should be outraged about or at the very least disappointed in the man Tiger has become.
Feb 11th 2009 11:23AM To those who have said no one has to watch the show, you’re absolutely right.
I chose not to watch the show.
However, the point I am making is that such shows only contribute to a coarsening of the culture, which affects all of us.
So the next time your in a store or at a sporting event with your children and someone nearby starts to swear a blue streak over the slightest issue, don’t be embarrassed or annoyed; celebrate the moment and thank people like Gordon Ramsay for making it perfectly acceptable.
But keep in mind based on his chastising a contestant for swearing in front of his (Ramsay’s) mother, Gordon Ramsay wouldn’t appreciate you swearing if you were in close proximity to his family.
Apparently Ramsay understands there is a time and place for everything, except when it comes to the American viewing public.
