You Aint Seen Nothing Yet

I'm sure there were a few that Booed

But the vast majority of the fans at the Alabama LSU game today cheered the President and First Lady when they were announced. Heck, I'd go so far as to bet that even the LSU fans gave a rousing cheer for their Commander in Chief. After all, he was just in their state to help get a good republican elected to the Governor's spot.
If we can get a few more of the kids to start acting like Patriotic Americans, I might just go back to watching a little non-professional ball.
Contrast that to the way National's fans reacted to our President at the World Series. At east the payers, for the most part, showed respect at their meeting with him.
The Black Lies Matter movement has ruined professional sports for me. While it is clear that there have been many incidents where blacks were mistreated, there are also many more incidents where whites have been mistreated. Maybe there is a color component, but in my view, it is a nation wide failure of all law enforcement brought on by the sweeping changes that happened after the 9-11-01 attacks. Police went from being public servants to all powerful masters. Not every cop is bad. Very few in fact. The culture of acceptance is the problem, and a little weeding and some retraining are the best solution. Punish the bad cops and punish the ones who let them get away with murder.
As for Bama and LSU, congratulations on your professional conduct and a great game which sadly,I did not see.

Some things never change

Roman Polanski, the film director PERVERT who was arrested and charged in 1977 with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl, is facing new allegations. This time the victim is reported to have been eighteen. Okay, I guess that is a change.
The alleged incident happened prior to his assault and conviction.
According to the story, seven additional victims have come forward claiming assault and abuse when they were minors.
Well, this victim is French, and while the statute of limitations has run it's course, The American prison system is beckoning. Maybe the French can see fit to improve their nation by deporting him now. It is high time his 86 year old ass got introduced to the dark side of California's prison system.
