Can someone tell me why the 2021 Pac12 football schedule isn't out yet? Is Larry Scott too busy with his farewell tour?
I'm just getting caught up on the "beans on weetabix" twitter excitement from yesterday and I like this particular exchange https://twitter.com/UKinUSA/status/1359197332286365699?s=20
Could go under "College", since its an editorial by the voice of the local flagship station who is also sometimes the play by play voice. Could go under..."Lunacy"?
We had a situation locally where the female clerk at a convenience store was assaulted by a would be robber at ~ 5 am. Fortunately, she will be ok, and the troublemaker has been caught.
Said the local voice to the community (who routinely admittedly goes to a convenience store at about that time, on the way to the radio morning news & sports show) that women shouldn't be working at that hour, or working alone. ! That is the main takeaway from the incident.
It would be easy to dismiss this idiot as the idiot that he is, but that misses the point that in this day and age, there not only is (still) a significant element of this kind of thinking out there, it is still given not only a platform, but the most prominent platform in the area. And gets tacit endorsement by said local major university, which of course publicly says all the usual things about policy on social issues that you would expect from any "progressive" institution of higher learning. And of course, because this is the message from one of the most prominent voices in the area, there is a significant number of people who will believe and support it.
For those that struggle to understand why we are continuing to have the issues we are having within the political situation, these kinds of events are a significant part of why. My serious question is how on earth do we address this kind of systemic ignorant by choice thinking effectively?

Yes, but with a lot less vigor than when I was in my teens and twenties.
Yes, thank god. Still have the speed at age 50, but the shoulders won't let me do the volume any more...
