It's been a long, strange week!

The press secretary/spokesman for the Florida Department of Children and Families was arrested for using two children in a child pornography adventure. Today's Tampa Tribune indicates that more than the current eight felony charges may be forthcoming. I guess this is the old "fox guarding the hen house" story.

In other news from Tampa, a coach of a girl's high school soccer team was arrested Thursday for having sex with a seventeen year old girl seven times, between February and November in 2007. He was arrested at his home on Crooked Stick Drive, (I'm not making this up). I guess that at least seven times, it was Straight Stick Drive. Kind of reminds me of Paula Jones' commments about Bill Clinton.

John Edwards dropped out of the Democratic race for the Presidential nomination. Reports are that neither Hillary nor Obama is seeking an endorsement from the Breck Girl. He couldn't win in Iowa after running there for two years and was a distant third in his home state of South Carolina.

Rudy Guliani left the Republican race and threw his support to John McCain. McCain promptly thanked Rudy for bringing the 8 votes to his side.

Fat Teddy Kennedy and his family have endorsed Obama. Talk about the kiss of death! As he has already established that young women can't swim, is Teddy ready to test Obama's aquatic skills?

Now that the Democrats are down to a woman and a black man, the Republicans should react by running Condi Rice. She can match up with the two Democrats, while leaving room on the ticket for some other group.

A commercial on TV the other day said, "Celebrate Black History Month. Be Colorblind." I am and I still think that it's a stupid statement.

Haven't heard much about global warming this week. I guess that it is a summer and spring story. The predicted dry winter continued here yesterday with about 1 1/2" of rain.

For an accurate forecast, this morning Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. According to legend, which tends to be more accurate than the Weather Channel, this means six more weeks of winter.

The Super Bowl coverage starts Sunday morning at 9:00 A.M. The game actually starts about 6:30. If you are still sober or awake at that time, enjoy the game. It's not on my list of things to do.
