It’s the NFL Wildcard Weekend, which means we get two games today and two games tomorrow. Happy happy joy joy, unless you’re one of them commie subversive types who’s not into the only sport the Russkies haven’t tried to steal from us. Tomorrow the girly-men Niners gotta go play on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. The forecast is for a balmy game time temperature of zero.
Meanwhile, down at the bottom of the world where it’s summertime, two ships remain trapped in the ice that wasn’t supposed to be there. I used to believe in Man-Made Global Warming, but these days I am skeptical. I’m not denying it, I just ain’t convinced it’s real.
There is a bunch of reefer madness going around as the nation’s puritans and tight-asses are having a collective hissy-fit over marijuana legalization in Colorado. It’s a topic that brings out the libertarian streak in me.
I have smoked marijuana on many occasions. When I was younger I smoked it pretty much daily, although I have never been one of the people who likes to light up right after they wake up. The main reason I don’t smoke it now is I can’t afford it – the good stuff is expensive.
I do not recommend smoking pot. I don’t recommend drinking alcohol or smoking either, but millions of people do all three. Like anything else weed should be used responsibly – no driving high, don’t give it to kids, etc. But I don’t see any good reason why adults should not be allowed to smoke ganja.
If you don’t like it, don’t smoke it.
Oh, yeah – one other thing. This is an open thread.
