Simply entitled “A Poem for Dzhokhar,” Palmer waxes poetically on how difficult life was and currently is for the accused terror bomber.
As reported here, the reaction of some Twitter users to the revelation the Boston Marathon bombers were from Chechnya speaks volumes about the quality of American schools. Sadly, in recent days, television news crews have provided reminders that their own employees are often no better prepared for the rigors of dealing with foreign names and places.
But at least Augusta National now has two female members. And, as with the catch-all “the Secretary shall decide” if Obamcare is otherwise inconvenient to Big Government regulators, CBS can always cite the calling in of a fan to allege rule violations to justify not disqualifying ratings-driver Tiger Woods for rules violations that otherwise require disqualification:
Some people clearly just don’t know when to quit. One of them is comedic actor Jim Carrey.
