Re: Max Tuerk dead at 26

The world's worst Father's Day. In all the years that I've followed HSFB, Max was one of the most fascinating players I've ever seen. Almost the perfect offensive lineman. As a sophomore I could see he was a D1 prospect. As a senior I thought his NFL career was a given. He was simply an excellent at...

Re: First Charges filed by Mueller

In some ways we all have similar perspectives of the current president. None of us are personally fond of the man and none of us believe the acrimony he has helped introduce are good for the country in the long-term. You can either let that color your interpretation of the facts or you can step away...

I don’t have as much free time as some of you evidently do, so I apologize for my delayed response to your posts from a few days ago. Also, I don’t have the patience to cut and paste every other sentence and respond to it so, in the aggregate, pagan: I was referring to "conspiracies" in general. If ...

I'm glad to hear you're recuperating, Ramon. When I get old like you guys I may be facing the same issue. But young and virile as I am I'll have to wait my turn.

This has become Internet equivalent of "Groundhog Day." The political equivalent of Barack Obama’s tireless "Birther" accusers.

Re: 2011 Santa Margarita Eagles - Last Legitimate D1/Pac5 Cha

Was this 2011 Santa Margarita Team the last legitimate, non-paid for Champion of the Pac5? I’ve wondered that myself sometimes, Domingo. I think there two kids who did not enroll as freshman on the team. One was a wide receiver and the other was a back up running back, both sophomores. When that cl...

Re: Your Daily WTF

Cruz mentioned four germane facts about Forrest, three of which make him a particularly inappropriate individual to honor: 1). He was a Confederate officer, which in itself carries no unique opprobrium. 2). He was not simply a slave owner, he was a wealthy slave trader which even in the antebellum S...

Re: Your Daily WTF

I think you may have missed the point, JQ. The objection is not because - like virtually all slave owners and seccesssionists - he was a member of the Democratic Party. It is that he was a particularly vicious slave trader who became wealthy in the process and was a founder of the KKK. He was also l...

Re: Suggestions for the site?

I was curious what it was that unspecified people were "making up" and just assumed that you would remember the who, what and when. I’d like to think that I’d remember unwelcome comments about myself. There is a timeless quote from the past that " What people say about you behind your back represent...

Not bad, Wabash, except that Donald Trump is the President, the tariffs he proposed were very real, uncontrolled border violations are not a “fake problem”, and he didn’t create it.

Reinert NEVER beat McKnight and MD................. I don't think any Orange County high school program considers that a criterion for success, LTO.

Re: Changing Democracy

What do you mean by "played a part"? If by that you mean that the electoral college was created for the purpose of defending slavery, you are simply wrong. Just look at an unbiased source like History Central: The Electoral College was created for two reasons. The first purpose was to create a buffe...
