Local 10 P.M. News on Weekends

A lot has been made about fake news lately; often justified. As an example, there was the false news item of Britney Spears dying in an automobile accident. 

But there is an interesting phenomenon in Alabama: Locally, our 10 PM news on Friday is given over to high school clips and scores: Roughly, 80% of the program.

On Saturday night, the focus shifts to Alabama and Auburn football; but maybe a nod to Alabama A & M and UNA. And maybe if there is some cataclysmic outcome in some other game. 

Suppose the Biblical Four Horsemen were involved:

One horseman: not a peep.

Two horsemen: maybe; if War or Death are involved.  If Famine or Pestilence are involved as the two, then fuggetaboutit.

Really gory accidents with live camera footage: it's definitely local news.

Of course, the hot weekend weather girl will make an appearance. In colder weather, she will forego a bra.

Time for a Remake of The Little Mermaid

Well, TLM was a hit the first time around. Now how about a remake with Ariel a bit older; something R-rated for the Age of Trump! 

Or will Jeff Sessions ban it?

Coyote Ugly Candidates in Yesterday's Election

The political campaigns leading to yesterday's election were long, bitter, acrimonious, and (at times) scary. When it came down to it, the two major parties' candidates were dismal choices: coyote ugly, as a matter of fact. Well, if the person I voted for had won, I would be experiencing buyer's remorse. 



I hope we do better with the choices next time.

A pipe dream: Should I run for public office? Engineers are notoriously underrepresented in public affairs? Jennifer says no.

Creepy Clowns in Alabama

The current wave of creepy clowns has even struck Alabama. Actually, a case can be made for the whole legislature being clowns in training.

Hopefully, things will be different in the future.

I wonder if barbecue and football is our equivalent of bread and circuses. We're in a pretty pass right now. 

We once had a good governor; but he was before my time: Big Jim Folsom. Unfortunately, he had three big problems: "Too much whiskey, too many women, too few honest friends," as an historian put it.

Absurdity or Irony in France

The recent flap about the burkini swimsuit in southern France surely has turned into a comedy of absurdity as well as a lot of beach photographs from that locale. Apparently the French fuzz in those places are hassling women who dare to come in one of these hypermodest swimsuits. This would have an air of black comedy if it wasn't for the effect that it had on inoffensive Muslim women who might want some time for a swim, if not to sun bathe. Seriously, forcing them to strip? That is offensive beyond belief.

There women can choose to go topless if they wish. Or wear a thong bottom, But to overdress, that's a harassment!

France can be authoritarian in their own way. Apparently, wearing a head scarf can be a red flag to some. No, women must go secular!

This would have been an absurdist joke back in the old days here. Too bad writers missed a possible story line back in the 1960's. Kurt Vonnegut missed this one.

To my knowledge burkinis are not banned on the Redneck Riviera.

View from the Rear*

By now you have seen enough of the paper-mache statue of The Donald with his micropenis. Very clearly, most of us have nothing to worry about. Now how about the ass of a horse's ass:
