Re: “Child injury charge won't keep Vikings' Adrian Peterson off the field

And jtsims, this relates to any place where there are children and parents.

Re: “Child injury charge won't keep Vikings' Adrian Peterson off the field

Well said and true, Norma!

golfpro, a lot of things that were considered "the norm" in earlier decades we know now are barbaric and cruel. (Also, they don't work!) I don't have to list them all but our ideas about male/female relationships, workplace relationships and how we discipline our children have changed.

Any time a parent or school administrator raises their hand against a child is a failure in parenting and education.

I listened briefly yesterday to some "fans" defending Peterson and it sickened me.

Re: “A swell Sunday open line

Rita Ora lacks even a vestige of the panache that Madonna had in her younger, more outrageous days. Ditto Miley Cyrus who wore pasties to NY Fashion Week.

They are pathetic Madonna wannabees.

Re: “Yoga cinches it. Hillary Clinton must be running for president

Okay, Cato. Scratch Hillary from the list of possibles. Who do you think our nominee should be? There are people out there that I really like---Sherrod Brown for instance---but he has expressed no interest as far as I know. There are plenty of up-and-comers, but I don't think they are ready. I like Kirstin Gillibrand, but she needs more seasoning.

I really like Jerry Brown, but he is older than Hillary. Besides, I think he wants to right the ship of state in CA and is so far doing a good job.

Speaking of CA, I talked to my son this AM. It's going to be 100 in Contra Costa County (east Bay area). The average for September is 70°. He was envious when I told him I had the heat on briefly this AM to knock the chill off.

Doris "Granny D" Haddock walked across the country when she was 90. Cato. Here is Pablo Casals performing at the White House in 1961---age 84.

There are reasons I feel leery of a Clinton presidency---age is not one of them. However, I will support her wholeheartedly if she is the nominee.

I met Mark Robertson, Democratic candidate for Land Commissioner, at a meet and greet last night. I liked him a lot. You can read DBI's endorsement here.

I wish I could say that the Democratic party in Arkansas is a sleeping giant. Right now, it seems to be just sleeping. Turn out was low at last night's meet and greet.

If you haven't read Gene Lyons' column about his Basset, Fred, go read it now. It's a great read even if you aren't owned by a dog or two.
