What About the Explosion in Texas?

We have all been taken in by the coverage of the Boston Marathon Bombing, the aftermath, and the search for the suspects that ended in the death of one and the apprehension of the other. It was another example of social media and our need for "instant gratification and information" coming into play before accuracy, and admittedly, as a member of the media, it made me a little embarrassed. Instead of "getting it right," it seemed a lot of the media outlets we have come to rely on focused on "getting it first." And it wasn't correct.

Another observation that came to me over the weekend while keeping up on the latest, like many of you I'm sure, was "What about the tragedy in West, Texas?"

Why I Won’t Discuss the Boston Marathon Tragedy

Kids, I think we all are a little taken aback by what happened yesterday afternoon in Boston.  I heard about it a little after it happened Monday afternoon, and I wrestled with myself about it all afternoon.  But I made a decision.

Detroit Lions Kicker (and Doug’s Favorite Player) Jason Hanson Retires

When you have a favorite player, it is usually the quarterback. People remember Joe Montana, John Elway, Dan Marino and the lists go on. People remember the running backs, Jim Brown, Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith, Barry Sanders and the list goes on. People remember the wide receivers, Jerry Rice, Terrel Owens, Randy Moss, Isaac Bruce, Tim Brown and the list goes on. People remember the skill players and even the defense. But who remembers the kicker? Sure, you remember the occasional kicker who hit a clutch field goal, or maybe you remember the horrible misses at key times. There is one kicker that I shall remember for a long time, and it's Jason Hanson from the Detroit Lions, who retired today (April 4).

‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Review

I stand before you, humbled, and tasked with explaining, in comprehensible terms, just what the heck 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' is all about. Attaining comprehensibility, however, is a chore the filmmakers didn't wrestle with, doubling-down on pure adrenaline and big movie star charisma. It's a risky move and sometimes it works. Sadly, this is not one of those cases.

While there are chuckles to be had (I mean, that Cobra Commander helmet is just too incredible to dismiss) there isn't enough whiz-bang in this film to fully deflect the utter lack of a story or absence of intriguing characters. It is, surprisingly, the lesser of the two 'G.I. Joe' films, with Stephen Sommers' 2009 'The Rise of Cobra' featuring much more team spirit, pep and fun.

SR-71: A Plane I’d Love To See Fly

I have always considered myself a good Air Force Brat as my dad served in the Air Force for over 20 years. While I only was at three bases, Castle Air Force Base in California; Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany; and Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, I got to see a lot of great planes.  I love the B-2 Stealth Bomber, A-10 Thunderbolt; T-38 that are stationed at Whiteman. I have enjoyed going to air shows to see everything from the old biplanes to the Mustangs to the F-4 Phantom to the F-16s.  However, I was a watching a movie Turbulent Skies and got to thinking that I never have seen an SR-71 fly in person.

What’s Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie? [POLL]

Kids, I gotta be up front with you: I was never a Girl Scout.  I barely made it into the Brownies, and I didn't go far after that.  But, I did learn about the joys of Girl Scout Cookiedom.

This is something I'm sure everyone is familiar with, and everyone has a fiery opinion on. This is hotly contested year after year, and it might be time to draw a line in the sand.  It might be time to take a stand for your favorite Girl Scout Cookie.
