I’m out right now

Wonder where I’ve been?

Some clues

Be back next year.  Happy holidays

And don’t have any heart attacks while shovelling that snow.

A.I. or no A.I.

A good question….

The Nuggets are still running in the race for Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson, according to NBA sources.

I’m pretty torn on this one. I think that Iverson would solve a huge need for the Nuggets. Their weakness has been a lack of an outside scoring threat from the guard position. Iverson would give them that. Additionally, having two legitimate scoring threats along with Camby in the middle gives Denver a very potent lineup.

However….

J.R. Smith and Najera are key parts to this team. Smith is a youngster who is just learning how to play in the NBA. He is a David Thompson sort of player. Hard to part with that kind of young talent. Najera, who I despised when he was at Oklahoma, is the consummate energy guy. If you need someone to battle for loose balls and rebounds, Najera’s the guy. Hard to lose him also. Finally, the Nuggets gotta worry about team chemistry. ‘Melo and Smith like to play together. They have fun with their high flying offense, and when they have fun they play well. Last year with Kenyon Martin, the team wasn’t having as much fun and didn’t play to their potential.

So what are the Nuggets to do? Do they make the trade and hope for the best, or do they stand pat and let the current group continue to gel? I lean towards not making the trade, but then again, if Iverson comes here and flourishes…well….watch out NBA.

A question for Dems

What was Former President Clinton doing to stop terrorism again?

American intelligence agencies were bugging Princess Diana’s telephone over her relationship with a US billionaire, the Mail’s sister paper has learned.

I’m a post 9-11 kind of guy.  I think everyone gets a pass before the World Trade Center came down.  But a lot of Democrats put everything on Bush.  Oops!!!!!
Maybe Clinton should have been worrying more about terrorism and less about  former princesses I think.

James Taranto would be proud

of this headline….

Murphy Says He and Brown Have Split Up

And here I thought “Murphy Brown” was a single parent.  No wonder Dan Quayle got so much grief.

Odoriferous Emanations

Goodness

An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing Monday morning after a passenger lit a match to disguise the scent of flatulence, authorities said.

They go on to say…

The FBI questioned a passenger who admitted she struck the matches in an attempt to conceal a “body odor,” Lowrance said. She had an unspecified medical condition, authorities said.

“It’s humorous in a way but you feel sorry for the individual, as well,” she said. “It’s unusual that someone would go to those measures to cover it up.”

I definitely feel sorry for this old lady (how do I know she’s old? How many younger kids know to light a match?) .  It must have been incredibly embarrassing to clear the cabin.  Too bad she wasn’t male.  A guy would have been proud of the achievement..

The good news; she’s not the first person to smell up a plane.

When Halloween meets Christmas

This is what happens when folks start putting Christmas lights up in October…

Sheila Kearns had a Christmas tree delivered to her home on Sunday. She says she thought she’d been pricked by pine needles when she reached into the tree while decorating it. But the next morning, she found a bat hanging upside down in her home.

It turns out that the Christmas tree farm Kearns bought from keeps bats around for pest control and that one unwittingly hitched a ride to her home.

I blame the supermarkets for this.  I gotta admit though, Sheila has a heck of an ornament there.  Maybe she could have a “Bat”ivity Scene.

I’ll stop now.
