......Yet another hiatus....What can I say, I've had projects to finish and places to be.....Longer days mean more time spent outside, which in turns means I don't have much to say when it's all over.

And what's to say? Hoggard had it right over at Guarino's when he told the fellas to carry on the horn-locking over various functions of the anus and the mouth.

Hey, we're on the verge of World War III anyway, so that matter might come up before a higher court real soon. And if all that's not bad enough, we're not far away from another November 3 in Greensboro.

Speaking of courts, gay marriage has taken a hit in the courts recently, most notably Nebraska's ban, which was approved by 70 percent of voters in 2000.

James Dobson said it best:

"This ruling is a textbook example of how courts should discharge their duties to interpret laws, not make them. The judges showed respect for the will of the 70 percent of Nebraskans who voted six years ago to keep marriage defined as the union of one man and one woman, noting in their decision that they were `highly deferential' to those who approved the amendment."

Other notes:

The N&R could use more articles and columns about family life.....

I'm damn glad I watched the replay World Cup final given everything that's been written about the Zadane head-butt. I would have felt left out....

The great Mel Allen spent some of his childhood here in Greensboro, according to a 1962 Sports Illustrated piece that's part of this collection......

The Reds may have fixed their bullpen problems. But now the Cardinals are playing well, though they stumbled tonight against the Braves....
