Dispatches from the Web

Perusing the web today, I bumped into some UK-related stuff that some may find interesting and others may find infuriating.  Either way, please don't throw rocks or invective at your humble servant.

  • Randolph Morris would rather be playing than taking the week off.  Considering how Morris has played lately, I think a little down time might be just what the doctor ordered.
  • Some guy named Alan Aja thinks UK is still racist, and argues that we have made little progress since he went to school there.  Naming Tubby Smith as coach just isn't enough, it seems...he prefers an apology.  From who?  Well, nobody knows, but that's what he wants.
  • Jerry Tipton notes that Smith likes the Old Testament verse 27:17 "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another".  I'll leave it to the reader to consider how much hand-wringing from the administration went into getting it posted in the Memorial Coliseum weight room.  But thank God [Say what?!? - Ed.], Americans United for the Separation of Church and State says "Freedom of speech is not absolute. Separation of church and state is not absolute", I guess we can all sleep easier now that we have their blessing...
  • And finally, this article from the Kentucky Post bemoaning UK's propensity for error proves conclusively that if the word "focus" were suddenly removed from the English language, we would all perish.
