The Left: “Letta Me into My House!”

By David Glenn Cox Everything happens for a reason or so they say. You never really can tell about it sometimes. Sometimes your memories change or at least your perspective about them changes. I was eleven years old and my parents had left me alone one Saturday morning, so they could run to the grocery […]

“Boyhood,” director Richard Linklater’s coming of age drama which was filmed over twelve years, has been nominated for six Oscars. When asked where did he get the ground breaking idea where movie-goers see a boy age twelve years in two hours, Mr. Linklater replied, “From the actor Macauley Culkin–who said he once aged fifteen years in two minutes. Macauley said when he was a boy, he was having a sleepover with a rock star, when they were tipped off that the police were going to raid the rocker’s mansion in two minutes. He told Macauley, ‘When the cops ask you how old you are, you’re not ten. You just aged and you’re now a consenting adult of 25. So act old or I’ll never let you in Never Never Land again! Now ‘Beat it!’ Tee hee!”

The Case of the Inflate Gate: Ex-Oakland Raider Coach John Madden commented on the New England Patriots’ being accused of deflating balls. Madden said, “That would have to be driven by the quarterback. That’s something that wouldn’t be driven by a coach or just the equipment guy. It would have to be the quarterback’s idea.” Patriots’ Coach Bill Belichick retorted, “From what Tom Brady told me, I look at this kind of, huh, ‘Inflate Gate’ as ‘Step A’ –as in where this athlete wants to go. After all, to become a woman, Bruce Jenner knew the balls have to be seriously deflated. If he doesn’t want to take my quarterback’s idea on what to do with the balls, then Bruce should just man up—for a change.”

Amid the child-molesting scandal at Penn State, Joe Paterno lost his job and more than 100 victories as a coach. But, as part of a settlement in a lawsuit filed by Pennsylvania officials, the N.C.A.A. agreed to restore 111 victories that it had removed from Mr. Paterno. There’s also talk that the removed statue outside Beaver Stadium of Mr. Paterno raising his index finger in a sign that his team was No. 1 will be back—accompanied by three new ones. The three latest statues will show Mr. Paterno in the poses he wore in the locker room—which were him covering his eyes with his hands, covering his ears and covering his mouth. Mr. Paterno’s widow, commented, “Joe would be so happy he’s seeing more wins, rather than ‘seeing no evil, hearing no evil and speaking no evil’—like he did when he was coaching.”

Basketball analyst and former NBA player Greg Anthony was suspended indefinitely by CBS on after he was arrested on a charge of soliciting a prostitute in a Washington, D.C. hotel room. Mr. Anthony denied that he was soliciting a prostitute but was scouting her—to play for the New York Knicks. Mr. Anthony explained, “The ho, named Carmella Anthony, would fit right in the Knicks’ lineup. Like a typical Knick, I saw Carmella go through the motions for two hours, choke, barely sweat, and in every period, she said she was too tired to play.”

The left wing film-maker Michael Moore has denied criticising controversial Clint Eastwood blockbuster “American Sniper,” following a tweet that read: “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards.” The “cowardly” Tweet caused Rob Lowe to tweet back, “He’s kidding, right?” Mr. Moore then replied, “And just who is this lowdown Lowe guy?” The actor then introduced himself with, “Hi, I’m Rob Lowe and I have DIRECTV. And I’m also overly paranoid Rob Lowe and I have cable–and a shotgun waiting for Michael Moore. Oh and did you know they hide listening devices in our cheese? Well, they used to hide ‘em there until Michael Moore ate all the cheese.”

Pope Francis’ confirmed that his trip to the United States this fall will include stops in Washington and New York City, in addition to the previously announced visit to Philadelphia; causing strong rumors that he will speak at stadiums. Pope Francis noted that he feels quite comfortable in a stadium setting saying that it was in that setting that he found and saw a vision of Jesus Christ. “It was at a rock concert in 1973 in Rio DeJaneiro and the audience kept shouting the cliché concert chant of that era: ‘Whipping Post! Whipping Post!’ Suddenly, I saw an ethereal vision of a Godly, long haired, bearded man of 33, stumbling, falling to his knees then lying down; while a mob around him screamed for his blood—as well as scream ‘Whipping Post’ you hippie!’ But Greg Allman was so stoned, he couldn’t finish that song or the concert–or even stand up. But hearing those ‘Whipping Post’ chants and seeing Greg Allman stoned reminded me that Jesus must’ve heard the same thing as he was stoned—and made me turn to the Bible forever.”
