It is no real secret that baseballâ€™s drug policy is a mockery. Like every other major sport, baseball has a written drug policy, however unlike other sports the policy has absolutely no teeth. There is no testing for anything other than steroids and even that is a total joke. Baseball needs to get the list out of all those invovled with the use of steroids and apply the appropriate punishments. Itâ€™s time to just piss in the cup!
My theory is that employers prefer college grads because they see a college degree chiefly as mark of one's ability to obey and conform. Whatever else you learn in college, you learn to sit still for long periods while appearing to be awake. And whatever else you do in a white collar job, most of the time you'll be sitting and faking attention. Sitting still for hours on end, whether in library carrels or office cubicles, does not come naturally to humans. It must be learned, although no college has yet been honest enough to offer a degree in seat-warming.
Or maybe what attracts employers to college grads is the scent of desperation. Unless your parents are rich, you will walk away from commencement with a debt averaging $20,000 and no health insurance. Employers can safely bet that you will not be a trouble-maker, a whistle-blower or any other form of non-"team-player." You will do anything. You will grovel.
Only in New England could it be 70 degrees one day and within less than 48 hours below freezing and a Norâ€™ easter raging outside and the weather man predicting a foot of snow.
So as the saying goes if you live in New England and donâ€™t like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change.
Relieved it's finally getting nice out.
R. Kelly has written a new song, "Rise Up," about healing in the aftermath of the April 16 shootings at Virginia Tech. A gunman killed 32 people and himself on the university's campus in Blacksburg, Va.
"Rise Up" will be available digitally May 15, and 100 percent of the net proceeds from its sale will go to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, said Jive Records, Kelly's record label.
Kelly, 40, wrote the inspirational ballad after watching the events unfold on television while he was on tour.
My friend Matt, who is actually my best friend's older brother (but I am very close with him) is one the the 25 finalists for the next season of the MTV show The Real World. Technically, it would be two seasons from now because they are currently filming the upcoming season. Apparently they are creating an MTV website with each finalist's casting tape and pictures on it and people will vote on who they want to see on The Real World. I can't think of anyone who would be better on this show, he is absolutly insane, so when the site is up you should all vote for him, his names Matt Blair, and he said the site should be up by next week.
