The Prez sure knows how to get y'all stirred up

We interrupt our not-regularly-scheduled retirement update to ask you this: which part of freedom (be it expression, speech, assembly) do you freaking not understand?
Oh. And by the way, your president is a complete idiot. Nope. Take that back. He’s an evil genius. He is a mastermind in changing the narrative away from what a complete and total flop he is to those horrible SOBs in the NFL.

CORNER: A shorts and T-shirt kinda guy

Since you asked, let me give you another retirement update. Last time, I told you I have shaved everyday since I retired (except Saturdays, which don’t count). That has continued.

Another thing – I officially retired June 16. I have not had on a pair of long pants since. I’m a shorts and t-shirt kind of guy. I went to a meeting last week at City Hall (you may know it as the M.S. Bailey Municipal Center – brought to you by M.S. Bailey and Son, Bankers). 

Out of position at an unfortunate event

 

So, as a journalist, you always want to be in the right place at just the right time. It’s nearly impossible, but everyone has to have a goal in life.

It explains why so many of us died Sept. 11, 2001 trying to get into the Twin Towers. It explains why journalists want to be war correspondents. It explains why I have applied to my publisher for hazardous duty, county council pay.

Set ‘em up. Knock em down, oh, never mind.

 

I have no quantifiable evidence of this at all, so I’m just going to say it. Bowling is bouncing back.

That fact, if it is a fact, offers a unique opportunity for Clinton. We have a bowling alley. As best I remember, it’s owned by somebody in Connecticut, and since we are not Greenville, we don’t have bowling. Even though, we have a bowling alley.

I wish the Queen was my Queen

Faithful readers are not surprised that I’m taking this opportunity – the next to last Corner ever – to profess my love of a woman who means so much to me.
She is the wind beneath my wings. The gas in my engine. The cheese to my smile. The peanut butter to my jelly.
It also won’t surprise faithful readers that I’m not writing about The First Wife/My Current Wife, who was covered in a previous column in the Larry Farwell Tour.
This piece is about the great woman in the world. The Queen. Not Freddie Mercury’s group. THE Queen. Elizabeth II.
