The short answer is certainly yes, but more progressive mentalities are slowly creeping their way into clubhouses across the country, and it’s certainly “trending” in the right direction. Historically these 3 areas of golf that have been reasons so many outsiders view it as a game for pompous douchebags, and what some folks within the golf community are doing to help it fall in line with the inclusiveness initiatives that are positively affecting many other...

The NFL released its teams’ schedules last week, and with many stadiums teasing fans about possible opening-day full capacity games, folks are excited. Adding to the buzz: eight lucky fanbases get to travel to Las Vegas this year to rage in their brand new luxury endzone that is an extension of the Wynn Nightclub fully equipped with hot tubs and bottle service (and rumors of easily accessible cocaine for when the Dolphins come to town)....

Former President, Donald J. Trump announced to the few people who are still listening that he was launching a social media platform devoid of censorship and fact checkers. This ended up just being a page on his website that you can see his Twitter-length thoughts and share them directly to Twitter or Facebook, but hey. As far as narcissism goes, that was actually a pretty smooth move to slide past those regulations. I think he...

Last week, 45 people were killed at a Jewish religious gathering in Israel when a crowd crush occurred after the festival and attendees were leaving a mountainside compound in Meron. The festival was celebrating Lag BaOmer, which is a holiday remembering the day a great plague that killed 24,000 disciples finally came to an end.  Though some celebrations of Lag BaOmer are family gatherings, the Meron festival was a sex-segregated pilgrimage only for fathers and...

Often, posthumous articles written about a person’s life are somber. Prince Philip was 2 months shy of the century mark when he died, though, so don’t expect to see many references to “what he could have done” if he didn’t die, because “live to be 100” was pretty much all he missed out on. In addition to breathing air for 99 years, Prince Philip was also married for more than 7 decades to the same...

The world saw a video of a man (Derek Chauvin) kneel on another man’s (George Floyd) neck for more than nine minutes, resulting in the death of the latter, and now the world is watching the trial of the former. The televised aspect is the first thing to mention when discussing the Chauvin trial, as Minnesota trials have not been televised in the past. Led by news outlets as opposed to the prosecution or defense,...

SPORTSWeed Rules

The NBA recently suspended random drug testing for marijuana, citing the pandemic circumstances, but also saying “… and focus our random drug testing program on performance-enhancing products and drugs of abuse” hinting that weed was not something players abused.  As a prescribed anxiety medication for many Americans, the fear caused by the pandemic led to the NBA also nixing their marijuana tests during their 2020 campaign, which was played inside a “bubble” with every game,...

Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a small Southeast Asian country East of India, South of China, and West of Laos and Thailand. In 1989 the country reverted back to calling the land “Myanmar” after the English name “Burma” had been in use since 1885. The recent coup does not have to do with the former English rule. It does, however, share some similarities to recent events in the United States.  On February 1, the Myanmar Army...

A few weeks ago, President Biden drew a lot of praise from the left and a lot of scrutiny from the right when he signed the “Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.” The title including the words “Restoring Science” is subjectively pretty funny, but even with the Keystone Pipeline cancellation, many environmental activists believe the order falls short (but in Biden’s defense, no one is ever happy...
