What does Kitty have to say?

Why can't things just stay the same? S-A-M-E. 7 points. Unless it's on a Triple Word Score. Then it's 21. The Scrabble people are changing the classic board game to allow proper nouns--including brand names, place names and people. Even more of an outrage to Scrabble purists, the allowing of words unconnected to other words. So Oprah or Beyonce would be acceptable words! Or even... Miley!  The horror! (Horror=9 points) Okay, they're really only changing it in England, where they're coming out with Scrabble Trickster, but not in the United States, at least not at this time. (Mattel owns the game in England, here it's owned by Hasbro, so they do things differently). I'm very concerned there's a slippery slope involved here.  What's next? I've got some suggestions for future editions. 1. SLANG Scrabble: allow all coolest newfangled words. Except you'd have to add an extra "z"  to use the word "shizzle." 2. Baby Talk Scrabble: Googoo gaga and baw would be allowed. (Don't speak baby talk? Baw = ball). 3. Strip Scrabble: take too much time to find a word, something comes off. 4. The Scrabble Drinking Game: Do a shot every time you get a double word score. Okay, go ahead, make it a double. 5. Drunk-off-your-a#* Scrabble: slurred words would be allowed.   And my personal favorite-- 6. Surrealistic Scrabble: the letters don't have to spell anything; they just have to look weird. Here's a link to the story about what's happening to Scrabble in England.

Good news for Midwest coach accused of child pornography. ~Stevi

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

Songs for Tax Day
So I learned today that if you're getting a refund, there's no penalty for not getting your taxes in by today's deadline. But why would you want the government to keep your money any longer than they already do? With that question in mind...
