Quote: “How can government do the right thing to help productivity and the employment it fosters? Get out of the way.

+++++++
Didjaknow: Although the National Football League is more popular than ever, the actual live attendance for NFL games has declined every year since 2007.

Rave: ‘50s on 5.
+++++++
Rant: During his quest for another Grand Slam, Tiger Woods hasn't exactly been losing out to great champions. He's going up against a generation of forgettable players and one-hit wonders. Take this into account when gauging how far Woods has come back.
+++++++
You Know You’re Old: If you remember when every quarter had an eagle on the back.
+++++++
Hmmm: A question about those ubiquitous "watch" lists for college football awards - analog or digital?
+++++++
Studies show: Americans are getting more and more cynical…if you can believe that.

More stats: During Ronald Reagan’s eight years at the helm, just 12,000 federal workers were added to the payroll. In four years Carter added 100,000. In five fewer years than Reagan, obama has added 130,000. For those of you scoring at home, that is ten times as many in 38.5% of the time.

You Know You’re Old: If you ever used the word gay to mean carefree or joyous.
+++++++
One Final Thought: If life was fair…Elvis would be alive and his impersonators would be dead.

As you were.
