Super Bowl Super Blows

   The Patriots won yet again in one of the most lackluster games of football I have ever seen. Even the usual hilarity of the commercials was gone this year.  Wow, it is Puff Daddy and he is driving a Diet Pepsi truck. At least the Master Card commercials were decent.

Peace in the Middle East. Ad Nauseum.

   Israel and Palestine met Tuesday to declare a new era of peace and solidarity. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abass shook hands and hammered out a new peace accord. I bet there is already a pool to see how long the cease fire lasts. I give it at least a couple of weeks.

Rugby fan loses worst bet ever.

   After publicly stating he would castrate himself if Wales beat England, 26-year-old Geoff Huish went home in a drunken stupor and made good on his promise. Maybe he should have thought about the spread.

Hello Dolly! It is your new sibling.

   The Scottish scientist who cloned Dolly the sheep has been granted a license to clone human embryos for medical research. Science fiction and thousands upon thousands of stories warning against stuff like this has taught humanity nothing. Messing with Mother Nature always has negative side effects. Look at Michael Jackson.

This week's read:

   “The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck. Possibly one of the best novels of the 20th century, Steinbeck details the trek of the Joad’s from Oklahoma to California. Incredibly well written and thought provoking, "The Grapes of Wrath" stands as a testament to human spirit. The novel is peppered with realistic dialogue and complex moral dilemmas.

Grade: A
