Just Thinking about things that make me say hmmm..

There are lots of things in life that make us say hmmm.. a.k.a. pondering over. Sometimes I do get aggravated at people who do not have a well thought through plan of action.  You know what I mean? You have something like getting your car inspected, and you know you have to make a phone call, and make an appointment, and make sure you have an idea how long so you can get someone to possibly pick you up, if needed. Then you have to make sure you have already sent your renewal and received your new one back in the mail. You will also need to make sure the new sticker is in the envelope, and have your up to date insurance card as well. Now this whole ordeal of planning could take time like maybe a total of four or five hours all tolled. Right..?

So,now you have someone who just thinks none of this is necessary; they just pop into the shop about four or five days after the inspection is expired. They expect you to just accommodate them, even though they have no paperwork with them because of course the registration would not be in the glove compartment. In fact, the registration sent to them 90 days before, they never sent it back with the check for renewal.

Now, they just want you to do them a favor because the cop who stopped them on the way over is expecting them to come by the station to pick up the expired registration with everything all good and valid. All of a sudden, this is now on your plate, all because somebody thinks they do not need to have a well thought through plan of action..hmmm

Can We Let Ol’ Joe Rest in Peace

My homework assignments this week are on athletics. To be sure my most unfavorite sport is football; however, all five of them are on football.  Whoopee! There are so many guys tooting their horns. Rationalizing about all their shortcomings a.k.a.” screwups.” Just four of them because the one on Joe Paterno has not been refuted, due to the fact he is no longer with us.  He was, if you will bear with me “tormented to death,” last fall after the big scandal hit the headlines. However, the commentaries still do not let him rest in peace

I do not know all the facts, but I am convinced Ol’ Joe wasn’t any big coverup artist.  Nor do I  think  he was involved in any kind of conspiracy to defend a child rapist. In fact he was one of Sandusky’s victims also. He probably did not know anything about pedophiles, or what they do. Let’s not be in a rush to judgment. The law says innocent until proven guilty. Right?  There will be a time to exonerate him and to clear his name down the road; or to convict him and destroy his legacy.

We do not know what he knew; we only know we should have solid evidence that he knowingly conspired to protect Penn State. Surely, before we start being judge, jury and executioner, we need to reserve judgement until after the trial. The truth should come out during the trial of ex-PSU official athletic director Tim Curley in January, then we will all be able to say that we know that we know that we know!!! Amen..
