The last days of the year will be dedicated to some of my favorite photos from the past twelve months. I'll toss in a thought or two if and when something enormous happens.
I usually find December flies by, but it seems to be dragging this year, and I just can't figure it out.
My number of Twitter followers increases every few days, and once again, I thank you for that. I feel obligated to Tweet more, but let's face it-- my life isn't that interesting. Also, I pick up new Linked In contacts every few days. I'm flattered.
Accused child molester Jerry Sandusky waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday morning. Despite the comments of the defense, you can't help but think a plea deal is in the works. 90 per cent of the time, the end result of a preliminary hearing is the charges being forwarded to trial, but it does give the defense a good look at the proseuction's case, and a chance to see how witnesses react on the stand. If there's no plea deal, waiving the hearing is a huge mistake. You can't say precedence has been set. The defense has made a lot of mistakes the last couple months-- including allowing Sandusky to open his yap.
By the way, please tell Mr. Sandusky's legal team that I've never required a lesson in how to shower.
The NFL has its shortcomings, but the big networks really like it. It's simple-- big ratings. There's a new TV contract. CBS, FOX, NBC, and ESPN will pay a combined $ 2 billion a season. There are some tweaks and changes, but things will essentially stay as-is, but with the NFL getting a 60 per cent bigger pay day.
I blew through one of the shopping malls yesterday afternoon, and it was extremely busy. Every year, we hear dire predictions on consumer spending, and every year, people blow through a lot of cash and rack up credit card debt.
I can complain about anything-- except this year's November and December weather.
