oh.......my.............god!!!
i actually agree with rickey hampton. his article
questions the fairness of the firing of coach gary lee
at southwestern. theres quite a lot that doesn't pass
the test. coach betts is also a great coach. they've brought
southwestern status again!!

nothing he did was illegal.
everything he did was OK'd by someone in administration.

the situation kind of stinks....almost like a set-up.

He could have just been trying to play the race card and happened to get it right this time. lol I think it's pathetic how Flint schools handled this. I think the coach deserves not only his job but a heartfelt apology.

We do need to make sure we follow the rules though and not have ineligible players.

actually, i find him a bit too condescending to young blacks.
he always "harps" on the negatives and gives the impression
all young black kids wear sagging pants, cuss and swear and live
the "thug life". Mad Mad in his last rant, he actually said that blacks
didn't consider obama black because he had a white mother, didn't
like tiger woods because his mother was oriental. idiotic!! my dad
and ALL of his buddies have been golf fanatics for over 40 years.
i just attended a funeral yesterday of a neighbor (86 yrs.old) in
which the program contained a picture of him & tiger woods. that was
one of the pictures he had been most proud of! hampton is a good
writer i agree, but has a tendency to belittle minorities, especially
blacks. what amazes me is that the editor allows him to persue this
train of thought, in search of "biting commentary". Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

Ricky is one of the few writers they have that actually get people pissed off enough to write in to the Journal about his stories. Agree or disagree we'll miss him when he's gone.

Speaking of Heller, did you see his article on today's front page?

Andy has, in the past, totally dissed us "car guys" as morons. He has written that he just "doesn't get it" and thinks we totally waste our time and energy on our hobby. (I "don't get" his fascination with fantasy football, but I don't call him an idiot for enjoying it.).

So the Urinal has the audacity to send him to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Andy proudly proclaims that "Lexus makes the very best cars in all the world."

And why? Performance? Styling? Quality? Fit & finish? No. It's "because the Lexus people were giving away free backrubs in their lavender-infused aromatherapy zone AND had a really excellent buffet."

Hey Dearing...Give me a press pass and I'll write a real article about cars.

BRING BACK JIM MILLER!!!

I thought the Heller backrub bit was funny but didn't make it through the whole article.

Well thats not hard to figure. You cant be a good liberal like Andy and lust after cool rides. What would Algore and the quiche eating treehuggers think of ya. Hes the epitome of a brainwashed leftist journalist and is at the perfect paper to practice his craft. Laughing
