Football Game Over?

As I noted late last year, a small Dallas-based college, Paul Quinn College, ended its football program because it was a drain on its finances. The remarkable thing about this story was that Paul Quinn converted the football field into an organic farm. Paul Quinn would not be the last college to disestablish its football team. The University of Alabama at Birmingham Blazers football team has played its last season. Boosters may kick in enough money to keep the team kicking, but this may be a sign of the slow ebb of college football.

The Paul Quinn farm, called the WE over Me Farm, has a Twitter account.

Twenty Years Ago Today

The paper published my first opinion letter, about the lack of "quality films" playing in Hilo theaters.

Sometime soon, I'll look at how things have changed, movie-wise, in Hilo.

On another note, Kunstler goes into full head-spinning mode about Ferguson. I'll post a link soon.
