Post Super Bowl Odds And Ends

1. Super Bowl Sunday was a big yawn for me as the game was unimportant to me (not a fan of either team) and the commercials were not up to past Super Bowl standards.

2. For all of you who care, here is the National Rife Association's "enemies" list. It is divided into five sections:

National Organizations With Anti-Gun Policies, groups such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, Congress of National Black Churches, National Association of Elementary School Principals, Union of American Hebrew Congregations, National Association of Police Organizations.

Anti-Gun Individuals & Celebrities, people such as George Clooney, Maya Angelou, Matt Damon, Gloria Estefan, Sandy Duncan. Sandy Duncan? The NRA is afraid of the influence Sandy Duncan has over the numerous fans of her 1970's sitcom?

National Figures such as "Ed Koch - Former Politician" and present dead guy, "C. Everett Koop - Former Surgeon General," "Michael Eisner, Former Chairman and CEO The Walt Disney Company," "Herb Scannell - Pres. Nickelodeon," and "James E. Carter - Former President." James E. Carter? Even his mama called him Jimmy.

Journalists, interesting, 12 of the 36 journalists listed are cartoonist. I guess a picture is worth 1,000 words.

Anti-Gun Corporations/Corporate Heads, groups such as American Multi Cinemas Entertainment, Inc., Argosy Casino, Kansas City Chiefs(football team), Silver Dollar City (Amusement Park), and Southland Corporation (7/11 stores). See a pattern with the organizations that are anti-gun? They have hundreds if not thousands of people coming to their businesses every day. Oh, and unlike the other names or groups on the list, corporations and corporate heads get the privilege of having their phone numbers and address included.

3. It confirmed, English king Richard III was buried under a parking lot in Leicester. Is that way cool or what?
