Wolfrum’s Word: Nothing in Common
May 12, 2011 by William K. Wolfrum
There was nothing to the Common story.
If you think the right-wing isn’t still embroiled in its endless culture war, the non-story of hip-hop star Common reading poetry at the White House should convince you otherwise. With eleventy-million important issues in front of them, Conservatives pounce on this? It’s not just weak. It’s flat-out racist.
Bin Laden’s Diary: Seems that the terrorist mastermind thought a lot about terrorism. Go figure. Also: He had a big crush on the little red-headed girl in his class.
Mississippi Flooding: The Mississippi River continues its destructive flow.
Holocaust Trial: John Demjanjuk gets five years. Pat Buchanan has a sad.
Celtics-Heat: Did Miami over-celebrate it’s win over the Boston Celtics? Who cares? Last night’s game was an epic battle, and Lebron haters across the nation needed something to whine about, is all.
Tractor: RIP Robert “Tractor” Traylor.
Thunderous: Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder are living up to their promise as an up-and-coming title contender. It won’t happen this year, tho.
“Breaking: Bronx Zoo chucking animals over the wall hoping someone will create parody Twitter accounts about them.”
Some old-school Common sense.
