Demonbreun Bridge closed, likely for good
Oh this should make traffic lots of fun for the next three or so years. You know, this was the exit I used to take to go to my temp job--though I was lucky to go away from the bridge. It almost makes me happy that assignment ended--just the thought of facing this type of traffic situation every day...ugh!
N.Y. Post Corrects Gaffe on Kerry Ticket
You know, one of the things I learned in all of my journalism classes was the importance of accuracy, editing and proof-reading. But this makes two times in as many months that papers have had big stories go out entirely wrong. And we wonder why fewer people these days are reading the newspaper...
Of course, it's also interesting to see how quickly these papers went up for auction on E-Bay.
Giraffe on loan drowns in Louisiana sinkhole
Here's something you don't hear every day....
I've noticed the past couple of days that one of my favorite comics, Close to Home
has been in "repeats" (it's labeled as Close to Home Flashbacks in The Tennessean
.) I have looked around the Net and can't find why it's in repeats.
The Amazing Race
OK, I have to already say that I find Charla and Mirna totally annoying. "Oh, why won't anyone help us?"
Good heavens, could these two whine a bit more?!? I found myself rooting for them to lose early and be out of the race, but unfortunately, they came in sixth and are still in it. Also, the twins, Kami and Karli--I know this thing is edited and we don't really see the real side of these people, but they did come off as dumber than a big old box of little bitty rocks. They missed not one but TWO markers and almost lost because of it. I have to admit I was torn in rooting for them to lose and between Charla and Mirna. The team I am rooting for is the father/daughter team of Jim and Marsha. You can almost hear Jim using that old Jesse Ventura line, "I ain't got time to bleed!" last night as he trips and tears up his leg two feet from the finish line. Early on, I have to say they're my favorite which means since they are now in last place, they will lose next week. Of course, in good news, Dennis starts out being a jerk to everyone and he and Erika lose out. Ah, sweet reality TV justice...
First details about Enterprise season premiere are out.
The new season starts off with an episode titled "Storm Front." If you want more, head over to TrekToday and read more about it. All I can say it--well, it looks like they might have a plan for how to deal with the Nazi alien thing. I am cautiously optomistic at this point.
UT's slate is for the Dawgs
Jimmy Hyams ranks the Vols opponents this season in terms of who will be the most difficult to beat. Interesting that he only sees one "for sure loss" out there--the UGA Bulldogs in Athens. I hate to say it, but I agree that it will be tough to go to Athens and take care of business against Georgia. But then again, as Hyams points out, they could be prime for a letdown after a tough LSU team the week before. I can see the Vols going 11-1 this year, but I can also see us going 9-3 again. I just think we do NOT need another trip to the Peach Bowl. OK, let me amend that--we don't need to go the Peach Bowl if we are going to be as thoroughly embarassed as we have been the past two years.
has some interesting thoughts on Bill Cosby's remarks to the African-American community last week. Definitely worth reading.
