Indiana Pacer Stephen Jackson, who gets paid millions to play a game, has called the new NBA dress code "racist" because it prohibits the wearing of jewelry worn over clothing -- think Mr. T. Jackson voiced no opposition to the bulk of the "business casual" demands in the NBA's new dress code, but he described […]

Spring cleaning

I spent most of this weekend cleaning Hoystory's central offices. I know it's the middle of September, but it's still spring cleaning for me. I mentioned that I would spending much of my weekend involved in this endeavor to a woman at work and she exclaimed that I was several months ahead and that was […]

Undergraduate classes at the University of Florida ended on April 20. That was 69 days ago.

The world of sports

Mike Tyson quit last night's fight before the start of the seventh round after he lost two points because of an intentional head butt and a failed attempt to break his opponent's arm.

March Madness

Well, the bracket is set and I must say that much more impressed with the choices made by the selection committee this year than I was the last. Last year, Utah State was ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, yet lost to a resurgent Pacific in the Big West Tournament final -- the […]

Rick Mahler, RIP

Atlanta Braves pitcher Rick Mahler died today at the age of 51. (via Q&O) I met Mahler once many years ago. His brother lived just down the street from where I grew up in La Mesa, Calif. His youngest nephew was a friend of mine, and I was at their home when Rick came to […]

Why, one must ask, was the suit against Biden's student debt wipe “inevitable”?
