Best that money can buy.


The Los Angeles Dodgers, with a $310 million payroll – BEFORE the trade deadline, will pay $47 million in tax to MLB. For the uninitiated, $47 million is more than the entire payroll of either the Baltimore Orioles, Oakland A’s, Pittburgh Pirates or Cleveland Guardians.

Braves beat Rockies 3-1 in 10,, with help of ghost runner in extra innings.

The bigger story – tonight was “Second game in Coors Field history to be scoreless after nine innings.”

Coors Field opened 27 years ago….

But no, Coors is not a Little League Field masquerading as a real MLB stadium.

The 162 game baseball season can be a long grind, and it’s tough for players being away from home so much. But your awww moment today from SF Giants’ rookie Sean Hjelle, 25, on his first major league road trip: “This is the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed at in my whole life.”

Why are NBA finals games THREE days apart? Because the league couldn’t figure out an excuse to stretch it out to a game a week. (If they could they would.)

Labor shortages are contributing to higher prices this summer in the travel and hospitality industry, because employers need to pay more to attract workers, and still face staff shortages. If only there were people who wanted to come to the US to work. Oh, wait, never mind.


Special Olympics, starting June 5 in Florida, just dropped vaccine requirement when DeathSantis said he’d fine them $27.5 million. “This will be a relief to a lot of athletes.” Amidst COVID surge, where heat means athletes will spend lots of time indoors. What could go wrong?

Republicans will blame everything for mass shootings – video games, parents, mental health, doors… Everything except guns.


If a teacher gets blamed for a mass shooting when she was falsely accused of leaving a door open, imagine what’s going to happen if a teacher has a gun that an angry student gets ahold of….

Economists expected 328,000 jobs added in May. 390,000 jobs were added. And good luck finding any media outlet who reports this as good news.

Labor shortages are contributing to higher prices this summer in the travel and hospitality industry, because employers need to pay more to attract workers, and still face staff shortages. If only there were people who wanted to come to the US to work. Oh, wait, never mind.

This is our world now. Stephen Colbert last night: “Sad to say the number one story today is not only tragic story, it is tragically common…. But last night’s Late Show was a repeat. Colbert was talking about the Buffalo mass shooting.

Finally, your periodic reminder that none of President Obama’s administration have been indicted.

    OR imagine this. A teacher, faced with particularly difficult students day after day after day after day; exhausted from staying up late with correcting work and planning; discouraged after spending her family’s money on class room supplies; upset with unreasonable district demands – snaps when challenged by the kid yet again. In that moment her loaded gun finds its way into her hand and tragedy results.
    I write this as a retired teacher who has known moments of great exasperation in the classroom and know this could be a real possibility. WE ARE NOT TRAINED TO BE ARMED AND POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS!.
