It was one of the greatest fights in boxing history. It gave us one of the best lines ever: “Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier” as a shocked Howard Cosell related what he was watching.
Like “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” it became one of the most famous phrases of recent U.S. history.
We’ve been watching some rather bizarre things lately. It started with Confederate officers. Then they went after Christopher Columbus. Then they told us that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were slave-owners. All together, it is a massive insult and attack on history. It divides the players into two groups: the white guy is always evil, and the everybody else is a poor little victim of “whiteness,” “white supremacy,” and everything else.
So it was only a matter time before we got to Mahatma Gandhi. He is not white, but I guess he insulted somebody.
Over at Carleton University, the social justice warriors are now after Gandhi.
The accusations are many: That Gandhi slept naked next to young girls to test his sexual restraint; that he worked to prevent the untouchable caste from being recognized as a distinct political group; that he routinely referred to black Africans using the slur ‘kaffir’ and demanded Indians in South Africa not be classed alongside natives.
I’ll just say this: will we have any statues left?
Of course, the solution to this, and so much more, is for the universities to tell the social justice warriors to shut up and do their homework. Unfortunately, such school leadership is missing badly these days. It sure looks as if the insane are running the asylum.
The 4-7 Rangers fell short again. Hamels gave up 7 runs in 5 IP and that was too much of a hole. In the 7th & 8th Texas had bases loaded but could not get the big hit. The good news is that Colon pitched 3 solid innings of relief. Need a little winning streak of any kind!— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) April 8, 2018
A headline that could only come from London: "London's Mayor Declares Intense New 'Knife Control' Policies To Stop Epidemic Of Stabbings"
I guess that bad people will find a weapon after all!
A post from January 2007:
The Colts will win the Super Bowl. Actually, I want the Colts to win for two reasons:
Tony Dungy is a great coach and role model; and
Peyton Manning is great but needs a ring to join Starr, Griese, Bradshaw, Staubach, Montana, Aikman and Brady as the great QBs of the Super Bowl era. Look at Jim Kelly, Dan Marino or Frank Tarkenton. They were great but do not have a ring!
Go Colts! I must confess that Indianapolis Colts still sounds strange after cheering for the Baltimore Colts for so long. (I miss Chuck Thompson, the late voice of the Colts and Orioles!)
4-6 Rangers looked great....Mike Minor super start...bullpen solid...clutch hits.....it’s enough to make you forget Friday night....maybe they will prove me right and fight for wild card.....Profar looked good at 3b giving Beltre night off......— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) April 8, 2018
