    I ran across an interesting article on Mr. Computer, written by a Yahoo Sports reporter, one Jay Busbee, which had the title, “Check out the terrible paper that earned a player an A- at North Carolina.”

  • Bill Tinsley Intelligent design

    Perhaps you have been following the story at Ball State University where the teaching of intelligent design has been prohibited. Eric Hedin, an Assistant Professor of Physics, promoted the idea to his students that the complex and intricate balance in nature reflects an intelligent design as opposed to a random series of accidental events.

    The stillest water at greatest depth has much in common with a recent retiree at Sul Ross State University in Alpine. Dr. Chet Sample also runs deep, having provided exemplary leadership that encouraged scholarship ahead of intercollegiate athletics.

  • Dick Platt 2014.jpg The Octuple-bogey

    Like many golf fans, I really like John Daly and I root for him to do well when he is on the telly. When he is on his game, he can be very tough but, when he is off, he can be an embarrassment to the game.

    “Believe.” It is an interesting word. Sometimes we use it to indicate doubt. If we are not entirely certain of something, we will say, “I believe so.”

    So, for several years I was a Mary Kay beauty consultant. (Don’t go there.)

    Because they wouldn’t stop jacking with the products.
