How windy is it, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers?

It is windy in Southern California; it was so windy in Los Angeles, it actually blew Donald Sterling into a soul food restaurant.

After new crack-smoking pictures emerged, Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford, has checked into rehab; it won’t be easy, the guy has never walked as far as 12 steps in his life.
Instead of a 12-step program, Ford will have a 13.5 step program due to the Canadian exchange rate.

Rumor has it Donald Sterling is fighting back and will try to start an all-white basketball league. Some of the all-white teams are the Milwaukee Smorgasbords, the San Francisco Laptops and the Greenwich Volvos.
Some of the all-white teams are the Tucson Kindle Fires, the Cape Cod Golden Retrievers and the Maryland Yachtsmen.
It is amazing an NBA owner, Donald Sterling, would turn out to be a huge racist; why, there hasn’t been an all-white basketball team since the Washington Generals lost 13,000 games in a row to the Harlem Globetrotters.

A study shows half of the people in New York are struggling to get by. And that doesn’t even include all of the Knicks. They are really struggling.

Los Angeles Lakers coach, Mike D’Antoni, resigned. That is shocking. The Lakers had a coach? 

Congratulations to NBA commissioner, Adam Silver, for banning racist Donald Sterling for life. NBA now stands for No Bigots Allowed.  

The Colorado Symphony Orchestra announced they will play a series of “Cannabis Friendly” concerts. Or as “Cannabis Friendly” concerts are also called: Jazz.

Heisman Trophy winner, Jameis Winston, was charged with shoplifting crab legs; hey, give the guy a break, you try sexually assaulting a woman on an empty stomach.

A few tangents on the Donald Sterling mess:

It doesn’t matter how great they are, if someone is an a-hole in sports, owner or player, they will be discovered. Donald Trump, Tiger Woods, OJ Simpson, George Steinbrenner, Jim Brown, Alex Rodriguez, Ben Roethlisberger, Ty Cobb, Joe DiMaggio, Tiger Woods, Michael Irvin, Lance Armstrong.

Just to name a few.

The other tangent is the reality of really rich people’s reality is unrealistic to the point of allowing them to be – or turn - utterly insane. Michael Jackson, Howard Hughes, Bill Gates (oh, come on, the guy rocks and hums constantly) Nike’s Phil Knight. 

Their isolation combined with being surrounded by sycophants either allows the crazy in them to come out, or actually makes them crazy.

There is a prevailing feeling that justice has been served in the Donald Sterling case. Has it really been justice? If you took the Clippers away from Sterling and gave him nothing, he would still be a billionaire.

And the last time I checked, Donald Sterling is still the owner of the Clippers. Besides not venturing out of his mansion/estate to go to Clipper games, do you think his life has been changed one iota?
