One of the most intelligent writers and TV commentators in America died today. His name was Christopher Hitchens. He was 64-years-old and will be missed by millions of people both in and out of the world of media and politics. Unlike most pundits, Hitchens did not favor either the left or the right in American political discourse - but instead called it the way he saw it on an issues by issue basis. He will be missed.

Right now, there is no doubt that Green Bay is the best team in the NFL. However, will they be able to go undefeated and win the Superbowl in 2012? Time will tell, but the odds of that happening are very good in early December.
I know many of you, who read this blog regularly, do not share my dislike of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. However, I believe the time has come to replace Romo with another leader and that person should be Robert Griffin III (RG3). I am old enough to remember what a big difference Roger Staubach made to the Cowboys when after winning the Heisman Trophy he lead the club to their current definition as "Americas Team".
A few days ago, a crazed gunman walked down the middle of a street in Los Angeles (LA) and started shooting at people driving by in their cars. The man was killed by police, but not before he critically injured one of the passerby's. In the video below, you may watch this man as he shoots at a person driving a vehicle down the street.
It has been a terrible year for IPO's on Wall Street, but game maker Zynga is hoping to change all that this week when the company goes public. Zynga Inc. is expected to raise $1 billion dollars in its initial public offering. The big question is, will the stock price hold over the long run?
Over one billion dollars are expected to be spent today, Green Monday, as American consumers are opening up their wallets for the Christmas season. The past few years have seen lower sales during the holiday season, but in 2011 - Green Monday will likely boost retail sales to a level that will make this year an up season for a change.

There are some folks who claim that God is helping Tim Tebow win football games as the starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos. While Tebow is a believer in God, we all know that the Dallas Cowboys are not only Americas team, but the favorite of the man upstairs as well. "wink"
In a late game surge, the New York Giants defeated the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night by the score of 37-34. It's clear that Dallas still does not know how to win football games in the month of December.
The question of whether men and women can be just friends has been asked for a long time. However, when it comes to answering that question - most women say yes, while men usually say no. In the video below, a young reporter asked men and women the question of "can men and women just be friends" and it is eye opening to see how young people answer that question?
A short time ago, a 6.5 magnitude earthquake shook Mexico near Acapulco. No injuries were reported early on, but millions of people were spooked when the buildings they were in started to shake violently. Watch video of the Acapulco earthquake in the video box below.
It's never a pretty sight when Cincinnati and Xavier play basketball and Saturday nights game was no exception. Watch video replay of how this game turned into a brawl in the last few seconds Saturday night.
On Saturday night, thousands of Baylor University fans in Waco and around the country tuned their TV sets to ESPN to hear the news that Robert Griffin III (RG3) had won the 2011 Heisman Trophy. It has been decades since a story this big has surrounded Baylor football and I am cheering right along side everyone else.

After a long life of making people happy using his acting abilities, Harry Morgan died today. He was 96-years-old. I will remember Morgan most for his portrayal of Colonel Potter in the final years of M*A*S*H. Morgan's resume is one of the longest of anyone who ever acted in motion pictures or on television. When I heard that Morgan had died on TV tonight, tears came to my eyes - even though I had never met the man in person.
