Lousy refs

Hoystory Sr. has season tickets to the San Diego State men's basketball team. I attend the games when I can. I attended last Saturday's victory over Utah, but it's things like this that make me wonder if you have to fail an IQ test to be a Mountain West Conference official.

This didn't affect the outcome of the game, but that's a potential four-point swing -- and SDSU was the home team.

This also begs one of the questions that I have pondered much of my professional life: Exactly what does it take to get fired?

  1. "Exactly what does it take to get fired?"

    It all depends on where you work. I see people fired on a regular basis here, for petty things (50% unemployment makes for an "employers" market). I also see people keep their jobs when they are embezzling money, and lots of it.

    I do not think that employment works the way we assume it should anywhere in the world. There are a lot of factors at play, and job performance is almost always very low on the list.

“Assault weapon” and “hate speech” are similar in that both don’t mean anything specific and the term exists mainly to try to limit rights.

“I don’t want to ban guns, just ill-defined assault weapons.”

“I don’t want to ban speech, just ill-defined hate speech.”

Reading through Donald McNeil's account of his ouster at the times and amused by his "God and Adolph" anecdote. I had a similar sort of experience at the SDUT.
