As Simone Biles likely bids farewell to Olympic competition, there remains the stigma and misinterpretation of "hero", and some who will think Megan Rapinoe deserves to be shackled and drawn over kneeling at the National Anthem. Are we STILL screeching about this, and why can't some people understand what it means to use a pulpit for needed social change in America?

Get vaccinated or go home, and it's about time. How do comics find anything funny these days? Right wing racists and the usual dipsticks show blathering ignorance about #SimoneBiles. NO MAGA in the #NHL.

America still gripped in a COVID19 nightmare and those elected conspiratorialists are trying to duck and cover. How popular IS NASCAR anymore, and does the casual sports fan care about that sport?

VP Kamala Harris started a firestorm with her tweet ignoring the meaning of Memorial Day and tossing it off as a "long weekend". It was insensitive, short-sighted, and a mistake she and her staff hopefully now realize. It opens the door to a larger issue, that of wishing people a "Happy" Memorial Day.

The single biggest issue driving America toward a level of empty-headedness we have never before witnessed is the inability of people, and platforms, to separate real news from fluffy nonsense.

The announcement that Tim Tebow was on the verge of attempting another NFL comeback turned out to be the single most interesting and ridiculous media event of 2021.
