the 23 year old words

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The magic of writing. It’s cathartic. It’s wonderful. It documents the ages and expresses the raw vision of the soul. I was thinking about this thing that we humans do called writing. Every culture has its own language, its own alphabet, its own way of documenting […]

La Quinta Tuscaloosa

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The La Quinta Inn in Tuscaloosa. “Make a right in 100 yards,” my GPS hollers. My girlfriend is nervous. I see her looking around, trying to relock doors that are all ready locked. “Is this the hotel?” she says trying to be brave. I want to […]

The Graduate

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. Graduation Day. My oldest graduated from the University of Alabama Saturday. Roll Tide. We are driving toward campus. It’s stop and go traffic.

Roll Tide Roll

woman shot

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The lady in the passenger seat. Shot, injured, in pain, she stood before me. “Instead of being discharged from the hospital, my family could be planning my funeral.” The woman is still in shock. She is strong, but I can tell she is amped on adrenaline […]

Ratings

It should be about holding the powerful accountable. It’s about ratings. It should be about righting wrongs and helping little old ladies across the street and finding lost dogs. It’s […]

sleepless night

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Yawning all day long. I feel like I am functioning on no sleep. I’m yawning and rubbing my eyes and wiping my nose. I’m just drag assing around. My eyes burn. My eyes are red. My brain is swollen, wrapped in an envelope of jelly that […]

Puppy Einstein

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The little dog. She’s white and fluffy and hops around more than a frat party on a Vegas pub crawl. I call her Einstein, not because she’s brilliant, but because she looks like Albert Einstein when he was reinventing the universe. Puppy Einstein has spiky white fur that defies […]

The Bruce Jenner Story

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Bruce Jenner story. Is he a boy? Is he a girl? I’m not sure what’s going on here. I’m watching an onslaught of morning promos and I wonder “Who cares?” “It’s the can’t miss interview everyone will be talking about!” the announcer booms. So What, […]

the things you didn’t know you didn’t know

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ How much there is to know that we don’t know. There is so much information in the world. Facts, figures, history, it’s an endless I Love Lucy candy conveyor belt. The filing cabinet of everything knowable is over flowing. Once we are able to open the […]
