MURPHY’S LAW: New Way To Decide Vote, Lance’s Feet of Clay

Murphy's Law Generic

Example of annoying Cardinals fan.

You may not like the St. Louis Cardinals, but how can you not respect them? 11 World Series titles, passionate fans, classic uniforms–and the Cardinals WON’T DIE. Injured players, final strikes, rain delays… doesn’t matter. They just keep finding a way. It’s really annoying…

During the rain delay, Fox started The Mindy Project. Just when I learned who Mindy is, and was beginning to understand her project, Fox went back to baseball. Next time Mindy’s on, I’ll have no idea…

I have nearly reached my breaking point on campaign phone calls during our dinner hour. I think I’m going to vote for whichever side calls less. President Obama, right now you’re ahead in disruptive phone calls, which means you’re behind on my vote…

Do you think anyone has ever decided who to vote for based on a phone call from a faceless stranger? Props to people with the passion to do that–it can’t be easy hearing people annoyed at best, swearing and hanging up at worst–but I don’t get how it could be effective…

Lance Armstrong remains a polarizing figure. After the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released 1,000 pages of evidence supporting claims Armstrong not only doped, but was his team’s cheating ringleader, only fans in denial can’t admit the obvious. Where it gets more complex is whether you think Armstrong is a fraud who built a personal fortune and worldwide brand based on a lie, or Armstrong is a guy who did what he had to do to win in a sport overrun with doping, and the end justifies the means because Lance helped inspire so many cancer victims, and raised millions…

The Lincoln High School mess just won’t end. I worry how the kids process all of this…

My son, Cade, just started middle school. He’s been stunned by how mean some kids are to others. His older brothers tell him middle school is the worst. When did this happen?…

Steak n Shake is opening 40 restaurants in the United Arab Emirates, but we can’t have oneĀ here in Des Moines?! C’mon, man! (I’m already sorry I did that. Monday Night Football pre-game show drives me crazy too.)…

Why not here?
