“I was in the Kohls parking lot in Mesa recently and came very close to being run over by a woman in a big black truck who decided to back up after passing by me as I was walking across the main driveway.  When I confronted her, she said “Oh shut up.”  Instead, she could have said, “I’m sorry” or “I didn’t see you” or “I forgot I had just passed you and didn’t make sure it was clear before backing up”.  It seems she definitely did not have the Christmas spirit and did not want to take responsibility for her actions.”

“Since ‘diversity’ is the new progressive ‘catch phrase’ du jour, how about a little on TV. For the past year, a visitor to America would think our population is made up of two ethnic groups only. They don’t see any Hispanics or Orientals in television shows or commercials. As a matter of fact, Madison Avenue has decided that new commercials should be ‘mono-ethnic’ lately.”

“Hey Mr. Bidwill, I’ll give you $20 for ownership of the Cardinals.”
