Sunday Morning Coffee – January 14, 2018 – When Quick Exit Became No Exit

I’ll beat you to it. I’ll admit it. I’m a damn hypocrite. A week ago in this same Sunday Morning Coffee space I bragged, about as proud as a just being okayed for membership to Mar-a-Lago, that leaving a ballgame was far more important to me than going to one....

Sunday Morning Coffee – January 7, 2018 L’dor v’dor

I’m not sure when the virus started and frankly I never paid too much attention to it. I was never warned I’d catch it but it started, gradually, over time. In Hebrew it’s l’dor v’dor — from generation to generation. I never saw it coming, either. What seemed like entirely...

Sunday Morning Coffee (on Monday) – December 25, 2017 The Art of an Endorsement

Yessiree Mr. President, you had a great first year. In fact it probably was the greatest year in the history of years. We know that because you keep reminding us of it. It started with the largest crowd ever to see a Presidential inauguration. Even though thousands of people were...

Sunday Morning Coffee – November 19, 2017

I did it. I graduated. Now, finally, I’ve earned initials following my name! Even though I graduated from a school I really didn’t want to attend and took a major I really didn’t want, I stuck with it and graduated. I really had no other choice. No, I’m not Roy...

Sunday Morning Coffee – October 15, 2017

The Sunday morning coffee pot was switched on late this morning which happens when you spend Saturday night in Tuscaloosa with the Crimson Tide. I’m grumpy this morning and I assume Arkansas is too after a 41-9 drubbing which featured ‘Bama scoring on their first play of the game, a...

Sunday Morning Coffee – October 8, 2017

`Unless you’re my dad, or unless you go to bigleaguedream.com and get true value for your twenty bucks, I hate asking for money. I’m a much better giver than receiver, especially when it comes to gifts and charity. But when Adam Cohen asks me to do something for the potential welfare...
