Shit Happens/ The Resurrection

July 26th, Thursday... In Christianity there is talk of the Resurrection of Jesus. He will rise from the dead and reappear to the believers. I'm thinking that it is a test of faith and belief in the principles of said religion of which I have no problem with.
That being said, I feel like I am witnessing a resurrection of sorts in Society. I call it the resurrection of stupidity! I keep hearing about how easy it is to access information via the Internet. The "social media" is easily accessed through one's cell phone and the system is on fire with communication. It's so fast no FaceBook seems outdated now. And, with all of that, people seem to be so fucking stupid!
Just the other day, James Holmes, allegedly, a brilliant student, shot up a theatre full of movie goers posing as the character "The Joker" at the Batman movie premiere in Colorado. Why? Okay, you can say he is sick. That, however, does not that he is not also stupid.
The world seems to be getting smaller, but the hatred is looming larger amongst people. The economy is now global but there is a divide between races and creeds. Global warming is evident and yet people are still polluting the planet! How stupid is that? In the Black community, the brothas are wearing their pants hanging off their ass, as a fashion statement, with the knowledge of the history of the move. How stupid is that?
I'm puzzled with the world right now. I cannot make heads or tails out of what I am witnessing. The question is, why do I even want to? Maybe I am just as stupid? D'UH!

Shit Happens

July 24th, Tuesday... I've been listening to sports talk radio go on and on about the Penn State situation involving their former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who took it upon himself to violate young boys in the shower. Now the NCAA has stepped in to punish Penn State with a 60 million dollar fine over five years, loss of scholarships and vacating Joe Paterno's wins record.
Well, Coach Paterno is dead, Sandusky is in jail, the school has been punished and yet there is no talk about the future lives of the victims! Why is that?
It's strange to me that there is no mention of what compensation lies ahead for them. They were sacrificed and it seems like they are being punished, again for said sacrifice that they, unknowingly, were sacrificed! Even if the money goes to charity, do they have to join said charity to gain compensation? Sure, they can sue.
Sue who? Sandusky? (Good luck with that lawsuit!) As I think about it, what is in it for the victims? Sandusky?

Shit Happens

July, 22nd, Sunday... DAMN! How long has it been? I know, I've been negligent but I have also been busy. I traveled, I did nome basketball coaching... Hell, I almost got a job coaching overseas! I was right there! Right there. I met a guy who was looking to hire a basketball in the Far East. He interviewed me, twice... Watched me coach some games and got real excited about the possibilities of me working in his organization... And then IT happened!
We went our separate ways and... BOOM! The bottom fell out! We emailed a couple a couple of times and then, nothing! He said he would contact me within a certain time frame. He did not. I emailed him to get the deal and, whoa... He wrote me back to say that he wanted to call me and talk. Oh, ohhhhhh...
So he called the next day and we talked... After the conversation, I was no longer interesting enough to be hired. Oh there were promises made about the future. What f#$kin' future? Last I heard, the future was not promised. Only guarantee I have about the future is that I will die!
Yeah, I get it. I will be a basketball coach in the Kingdom! I wonder if I will win a championship in that league?
