Auburn Softball rules

Auburn Softball rules

You will have to forgive me, but what follows is social commentary. I know, we get preached at enough from all corners, but in this you will have to indulge me. Auburn University (my alma mater) has a softball team. It’s had one for almost 20 years. And to be perfectly frank, I have not […]

Can Whitlock Coach the Undefeated Team?

Can Whitlock Coach the Undefeated Team?

It’s an oversimplification worth heeding: Journalists should never be in charge of anything. Don’t ever say to a columnist, “If you’re so smart, why don’t you do something other than criticize?” Too risky. We can organize words, sentences and paragraphs into an article.

O’Really, Mother Jones?

O’Really, Mother Jones?

Please forgive a topic unrelated to sports, but the recent Mother Jones article about Bill O’Reilly’s supposed wartime exaggerations deserves comment. It is more a demonstration of the absurdity of 2015-era media than a serious ethical discussion. A couple of weeks after Brian Williams was suspended by NBC because of misrepresentations about his Iraq War […]
