Between work and working on my golf game (if you want to call it that) it’s been a long hard week. We’re in the middle of a stretch of 113-116 degree days, so this weekend is perfect for staying in and doing some much-needed house cleaning. In the meantime, just a few items that I hadn’t had a chance to blog much about.

Do I feel bad about a gorilla being shot at a zoo? Yes. But if I have to choose between a four-year old and a gorilla, and there’s no way to quickly tranquilize the gorilla like, say, playing Celine Dion music over the loudspeakers, then you gotta do what you gotta do.

R.I.P. Muhammad Ali. There will never be another like him. Truly one of the greats. Godspeed, Champ.

How would you like to see this feller strolling across the fairway at your local muni?

Sure, I’m a Trump fan, but the PGA Tour is making a mistake dropping his Doral resort for – are you kidding me – Mexico City? Whether you like The Donald or not, the fact is: that Miami / Doral has been a prestigious destination on the Tour’s schedule for nearly six decades. And to let petty politics – and make no mistake about it, this is nothing but petty politics, there being few in the sports world as petty as outgoing PGA Commissioner Tim Finchem – trump (pun intended) history and tradition is a shame.

…not to mention the fact there are any number of other PGA Tour events lacking in both color and tradition that would make a move to Mexico City more interesting. But who the hell would want to play golf there?

What happened outside Donald Trump’s San Jose rally yesterday is both a disgrace and dangerous to American democracy, bordering on the kind of mob rule you see in Socialist and Communist countries. While it took President Obama the better part of a day to condemn the violence, I’m glad he did so, and I hope more Democrats would follow his lead. People have a right to express their support for the candidate of their choice as long as it doesn’t infringe upon another’s right. If folks want to peacefully protest Donald Trump’s rallies, I have no problem with that – that’s their right. But the moment you start threatening and assaulting folks, that is a crime and needs to be swiftly and powerfully dealt with. San Jose should be ashamed of their moronic mayor and the police chief; they should be forced to submit their resignations immediately.

…and for liberal morons to assert that Trump himself is responsible for the violence is the same kind of “had it coming” thinking that blames rape victims for wearing provocative clothing.

Gee whiz. This can’t be a good thing.

Since we’re past Memorial Day and can now say it’s “officially” summer, how about some hot sounds from a great surf band, The Anacondas?
