WKRP in Fayetteville: Remembering the wisdom of Doctor Johnny Fever

Posted By on Thu, Mar 6, 2014 at 11:34 AM

Looking cynically over my trash can and recycling bin sitting forlornly by the side of the street, waiting in vain for the day when they might be emptied, and again as I considered the trash that still hasn’t made its way outside yet, I thought of the classic (as indeed so many of them were) episode of WKRP in Cincinnati, when Doctor Johnny Fever urged his radio listeners to just take their trash and dump it on the steps of City Hall.

Johnny was aghast when folks actually began to do just that, and being a responsible blogger (though I’m really not sure that “responsible” and “blogger” are allowed by law to be in the same sentence, let alone the same paragraph) I would never urge folks to do the same.

And yet, there are some pretty upset folks in my neighborhood . . .

I have never met an author who admitted that people did not buy his book because it was dull. - Somerset Maugham

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
