Former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, an old white guy, worries that today’s intellectual environment thwarts dissenting opinions. Egocentrism places one’s opinion above all others that dare to differ.
He’s right. But he’s old and white so…ignore everything he says. Old white guys, often assumed to be evil, have privileged cluelessness.
Just stick to shouting down anyone with whom you disagree. It’s working so well for us. And you know everything already. So keep screaming.
My wife Mary and I had a funny chat with an inebriated Andre McGee at Unbridled Eve a decade ago. Now, of course, we can only wonder what sort of seedy things were going on with McGee and the University of Louisville Cardinals that he was supposed to protect.
It’s no wonder Andre needed to get tipsy. He was likely hiding lots of secrets.
Rick Pitino is now coaching in Greece. The University of Louisville basketball program is slowly crawling out of a scandalous mess that involved Pitino’s personal missteps, recruits confirming that strippers were hired by former UofL player McGee to “entertain” them on visits, and adidas-related payments to the family of recruit Brian Bowen.
The payment scandal casts a shadow over all of college basketball. The brunt of the Louisville stripper scandal was tagged onto Pitino’s graduate assistant McGee.
Does anyone really believe that a graduate assistant with very little income was able to pay thousands of dollars to strippers and prostitutes? Oh hell no.
But McGee has vanished. We may not ever know the truth of who orchestrated and paid for all of this embarrassment that cost UofL its 2013 national championship.
When McGee was a freshman in 2005, I spent a few minutes talking with him about basketball, family competition, and, of course, beautiful women.
With our wealth of knowledge today, watching this video is gut wrenching. Notice the exuberant attitudes of Pitino and McGee, and think of the sting they now feel. McGee is still MIA, not appearing in public for years. Many other coaches, players, recruits, and associates also carry the stink of this horrific period.
The upside? Look at the University of Louisville basketball program now. Time really does heal all wounds.
THE BEASMAN cats rolling and duke is coming for u of smell

With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s #GreenNewDeal to rid America of airplanes, cow farts, and every non-green building in the country within 10 years, this Jefferson Starship song from the 70s MUST BE ERASED!
We didn’t build this city on rock and roll, you carbon crushing pigs. We built it on land stolen from Native Americans and with wealth stolen from rank-and-file union workers! KNOCK THESE CITIES DOWN and build all new carbon neutral buildings, unless of course, people are unwilling to work. They need financial parity with everyone else. Pay the unwilling! Pay the unwilling! Pay the unwilling!
Coal? AOC says it’s DOA. What say you, Gov. Matt Bevin?
Only cowards are afraid to do the right thing, and the people of Kentucky are not cowards.
— Governor Matt Bevin (@GovMattBevin) February 10, 2019
AOC says cowards are people who cannot accept her GREEN NEW DEAL. She is the genius voice of the future and her rapper name is CRAZY EYES.
The next unacceptable tune DR. WOKE WOKE says must be purged is by the greatest guitar wizard of the rock & roll generation.
In the 60s anthem Hey Joe, legendary Jimi Hendrix wrote and sang “I’m going down to shoot my old lady. I caught her messing around with another man.”
Guns. Murder. Misogyny. And what’s wrong with a woman expressing herself sexually with another man or another woman? A man does not own or control any woman. Shame, shame, Jimi.
ERASE THIS SEXIST SONG NOW!
Don’t even ask about the problems with Elton John’s 70s hit Island Girl. Sexist. Racist. Imperialism over marginalized island peoples. Go wash out your ears and never mention this disgusting song again.
DJ WOKE WOKE will be back after this two minute message of love and understanding from soda peddlers who also built their empire on the backs of marginalized workers.
The final entry in today’s DR WOKE WOKE countdown is the cultural appropriation of reggae music by some European interlopers. The implication that locals would try to relieve a guest of his jewelry and wallet is LUDICROUS! This would never happen in the real world! Stop your lying, you evil white men!
Go ahead and say it again, AOC.
DR WOKE WOKE OUT!
Five teenagers between ages 12 and 16 allegedly robbed Nashville singer Kyle Yorlets as he stood in his back yard. They demanded his car keys. Yorlets refused.
One of the teens then shot Yorlets and all of the assailants fled in a stolen vehicle. The singer dragged himself back into his home and died a short time later.
The 12-year-old criminal detailed for police the details of their crime spree including the murder and various car thefts, one from Oak Grove, Kentucky.
The Nashville newspaper refused to identify the teens because of their “young age(s).”
Is this responsible journalism? Shouldn’t the public be informed of the identities of murderous citizens? What if any of these criminals somehow makes bond and is released? Wouldn’t the publication of their identities inform the public to steer clear of any of their associates who may or may not have been involved but are not yet charged?
The Associated Press stylebook addresses this issue without providing definitive direction. It’s open to local interpretation.
A community has the right to know if some of its citizens participate in assaults, thefts, rape, violence, murder, or any other mayhem that is dangerous to the rest of the community. Age is no factor. If a human violates community order with any of these heinous crimes, the public should be informed.
A friend of Yorlets describes the reverberation of pain through the dead man’s circle of family and friends.
People choose to live in a community to support each other through common use infrastructure, enlightenment, education, and protection. The basic understanding is that any dangerous citizens are to be removed so that they can no longer threaten the law-abiding majority.
The Louisville community has suffered noteworthy acts of violence perpetrated by youthful offenders who are then protected with a cloak of obscurity by some media outlets. This is depraved dereliction of duty.
My own 28-year-old son and a female friend were accosted on Cherokee Road in the Highlands on a summer night in 2017. Two youths put a gun to my son’s head and made him beg for his life as they robbed both victims.
No biggie. Youthful indiscretion. No one died. Forget about the emotional trauma inflicted on my son and his friend.
Let’s protect the identity of these depraved youths because, well, they could become upstanding citizens some day! Never mind that they might cross paths with your kid tomorrow night on a Louisville sidewalk.
Local media’s mission is to inform the public of inherent danger. Media steps up with BREAKING NEWS if there is a gas leak, wild animal on the loose, dangerous weather approaching, etc. but often masks the names of young criminals.
The thought is that the youth will rehabilitate and mature to become a helpful members of society. Reality can’t be hidden. Just like a dated tweet or an outrageous high school yearbook post that comes back to haunt politicians or celebrities, youthful crime must be included in a person’s resume.
There is no defined aging moment that launches potential acts of depravity. In the case of “underage” terrorists, media has a duty to alert the public when killers or violent, deranged, sociopathic offenders live nearby. They’re still terrorists, capable of creating mayhem on innocent citizens in any community.
Just like smoke detectors, media has a duty to alert otherwise uniformed society that predators are on the prowl.
Some media outlets, particularly broadcast and online, did the right thing by informing the public with images and names of at least 3 of the Nashville suspects because they were 14 or older. But most of the Nashville TV stations limited their information to ages of the suspects without using names or photos.
Society has the right to know the names and images of predatory terrorists who use violence against others. Do your job, media. Inform the public.
Other than the few publications that value community safety above outdated notions of childhood innocence, most media are coddling criminals instead of informing the law abiding citizens of youthful terrorism.
Worldwide media showed very little restraint in naming and demonizing 16-year-old Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic student whose crime was smirking at a grown man beating a drum in his face after a group of other grown men hurled homophobic and demoralizing slurs and threats at Sandmann and his classmates.
I am one of 14 children born to Norma & Mel Meiners. Mom delivered 15 babies over a span of nineteen years. Baby Dennis died several weeks after his birth in the mid-50s.
That loss of life spun my parents into an emotional freefall. Nonetheless, they went on to accept the blessing of 12 more children. I was the fifth (technically sixth) child born to Norma and Mel and they never stopped loving, encouraging, and leading all of us.
Both of them have been gone for over a decade. The one mission that their Catholic faith led them to pursue above all else was the protection of life. My parents marched every year on January 22, my birthday and the date of passage of Roe vs. Wade.
Norma and Mel believed in the sanctity of life and pushed back against those who casually claimed that abortion was a decision for a mother and her doctor to make. The Meiners children were taught that only God chooses who lives or dies, that there are no “mistakes” in conception, and that authority over life belongs to God and God alone.
I appreciate what Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin states in the following video. The words of Down Syndrome adult John Franklin Stephens (below) are my testimony in the argument over who shall have the authority to end a child’s life.
In an increasingly perverse culture that callously celebrates infanticide and death…

While Democrats are currently arguing in favor of late-term abortions if the baby has an “abnormality,” John Franklin Stephens makes a powerful argument against that:

I love you, Mom and Dad. You are missed every day. You taught us well.
The University of Louisville women’s basketball team has many Final Four appearances, conference championships, and stunning victories in showcase games.
The only team they have not beaten is UConn. OK, Louisville beat them once in the 1993 postseason tournament but that was light years ago.
Cards head coach Jeff Walz has bolstered this once pedestrian franchise into a perennial power but he has lost to Connecticut six times. The Louisville program had lost 17 consecutive games versus UConn over the years.
That losing streak is OVER!
Asia Durr lit it up and her teammates came through like never before in dispatching UConn with its second lump of the year. UConn lost to Baylor a month ago and rarely loses twice during the regular season.
Add this victory to the city of Louisville’s Great Sporting Moments.
