Black humor

In John Brummett's hands, the Hog soap opera becomes a tragi-comic opus. Beholding the announcement of yet another basketball coach, he writes:

First, there was the White crackup, which was a clever twist, considering that viewers would have expected it of Broyles instead.

White, the chancellor of the school, which is a supporting role to Broyles, got up and started rambling about Yogi Berra and "Groundhog Day" and wound up carrying on about kudzu and pines and bluegrass and coal mines and lowlands and Lord knows what all.

Everybody was looking at him trying to figure out what he was talking about. The camera went to Broyles, who had fallen asleep.

And, yes, he has Houston Dale text-messaging on the sidelines.

    Donald Trump gave a remarkable interview to the New York Times yesterday in which he declared open season on the marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton's past infidelity. Seems like a loser, but I've been wrong before.
