The Death of Common Sense

A West Virginia school during Patriotism week made a sign about their opponent from Pittsburgh. They made the sign red white and blue, and the sign read, “Trump Perry.” It did not say, “WE HATE BLACK PEOPLE.” A football banner is intended to intimidate the other team.
My high school was Ellet High School so Ellet rhymed with Smell iT. As our mascot was a giant Orange Hulk, and we were known as the Orangemen, we often saw many signs about “Squeezing the Orangemen.”
Our arch rival was Springfield High School. Springfield had a lake. So we called students from Springfield, “Swamp Rats.”
I guess by today's standards we were bullying when we played the fight song after a touchdown.
I can't believe this made the news. Instead of the superintendent from the WV school writing an apology, they should've suspended the LIBRARIAN for being a narcissist and making everything about her, and for not being able to process any opinion besides her own.
While I can't “tell you how to feel” you should be willing, and wanting to hear the other side of a story and be willing to participate in a dialogue. Here is the story from CNN

  1. Hi Dave – love your shows and I always look forward to the latest episodes. Just one question, where have all the direct mp3 “download” links gone from your shows? I’m sure there are others like me who like to download the mp3 file directly.
