somebody’s gettin ‘it …

According to ESPN, Buffalo has reached a contract extension with star wide receiver Stefon Diggs. His new contract reportedly includes $70 million guaranteed and extends his current deal by up to four more seasons through 2027.

Diggs, 29, was set to enter the 2022 season with a salary cap hit of just under $18 million and was in line to be a free agent at the end of the 2023 season. The guaranteed money in the deal is more than the $65 million Davante Adams received in his new contract extension and just less than the $72 million Tyreek Hill received in his new contract. Hill’s contract included the most guaranteed money to a wide receiver

I haven’t been raging, or I’d have been gone. I had some things to say, and I expressed them in as thoughtful and measured way possible for me. You said what you had to say, and I read no emotion into what you wrote. I have to carefully manage my temper, you see, so I know when I’m starting to get hot. That doesn’t always stop me, but tonight ain’t it. I have no problem with you, from what I’ve read so far. Stay well, and return soon.

Speaking generally, anyone who read significant emotions in what I’ve had to say so far are barking up a tree in the wrong forest.

Because it is. I don’t know “why”. I don’t even know that is the case, but it is the best reason I can come up with. Why do baseball coaches have to wear that stupid uniform? Why did that 49ers HC get fined every game for wearing a shirt and tie? Why did Tebow get fined for praying? Rules is rules.

“Rules are rules, just shut up and follow them”, to paraphrase this popular line of thinking, suspends all moral notice of the effect of said rules. “Blacks sit at the back of the bus” was a rule, but was there no valid reason for it.

“Because it is. I don’t know “why”.” is a defense of such a seating arrangement for some, back in the day, and it hasn’t improved with age. If we cannot question, and even challenge rules, become slaves to the writers of said rules, writers who may have unfair objectives in mind.

“It’s a silly rule, but just obey it” is more than counterbalanced by “it’s a silly rule, so why obey it?”.

Large? That pitiful few, too few and disorganized to even call an army, were thrown back across that river with ease, having done no serious damage. The courts have been dealing with them, to their detriment.

You were undoubtedly exaggerating to make a point, but Poe’s Law is only one danger of that. As for the lingering belief that there were irregularities, the Left-wing mass news media are largely to blame for that. They created a vacuum that Fox News came to occupy, and they’ve only gotten farther away from there.

If you want to fix the problems of society, start with your own side, because the opposition won’t just capitulate because your group says it’s less bad than theirs. They are not blind or stupid, as Dan Rather found out with his attempt to throw an election with his “fake, but accurate” claim against Bush. He may have been retired for that, but See-BS never apologized for it, and never showed a shred of interest in regaining some credibility with those who leaned Right.

That’s not water under the bridge, either, because they’ve only retreated from the center since. They can’t be trusted to being fair any more than Fox can, and that also applies to their fellows, like MSDNC and the “Grey Lady”.

Not an isolated event. Softball. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/13/us/north-carolina-high-school-hair-beads.html
For the record, I agree with SCKSChief. It’s a rule, play by it.
It is a BAD rule, probably racist, but I’ll withhold that judgement until I find out the WHY to the rule. Was someone hit in the eye by flying beads? Injured? Could be. Was it made because some uptight school board member thought that they looked ghetto? Also could be.
This isn’t a subject most of us here should be pontificating on, really. Women and their hair should be left to women. And Black women and their hair should be left to Black women.

One of the lesser-known sins of Trump is that he appointed a man who tried to undo that. It didn’t work, but he still did some damage.

Meddling with institutional standards is dangerous bidness, whether it be Obama or Trump – and the latter proved the former’s departure from the previous norm was a horrible idea. The one set the stage for the other, and just look where it got us.

Well – plans changed but still the same – my son will now be going to Nashville – not Memphis as projected and will be leaving on Sunday night. He just got back from there – has an apartment ready to go. For those that did not read the original post, he got a very nice promotion but this will be the first time that I will be more than fifteen minutes away from any of my kids. I remain strong – one tough moment – took everyone to dinner and got a picture of my three kids together – that was a bittersweet moment.

I was late, due to have somehow confused today with tomorrow (to be fair, I wrote it well in advance), but I’m glad to see that there’s still interest in my WTW series. I’m not the best choice for the writing side, having mostly stuck to the research for its initial run, but for now at least, it’s me or nobody.

Still, history should be remembered, and I have little faith in the US educational system teaching military history. In my experience as both a student and a parent, what little they do teach on that topic is almost worse than nothing. My kids were fortunate they have the parents they do, because we leaned into educating them when we realized just how badly “one of the best districts in KS” was doing, in that regard – and we learned that very early on.
