Well, this is the last time I'll be writing a column for The Daily

Well, I'm feeling the need for a little rant this week, and luckily, I have
several fun targets to pick on.
For example, I heard a few days ago that O.J. Simpson would be hosting an
Internet chat and that anyone wishing to chat with him would have ...
Political correctness leaves much room for criticism
June 13, 2000
You know, sometimes the PC pinheads make column writing way too easy. All
you have to do is read of their idiocies and pick on them.

First, I'd like to say a word or two about the Elian Gonzalez situation.
While I always thought that the father should have gotten the kid back long

Jesus billboard, lawsuit only serve to show stupidity

The thing about writing a weekly column is that sometimes, it's easy to
find something to write about and other times, it's hard. Initially, this
was looking like a hard week, but thanks to PETA (yes, I get to pick on
them three times in one semester) and ...
People trying to be PC aren't showing high IQ

PETA, state lawmakers make fools of themselves
March 16, 2000
In today's column, I think I'll pick on both PETA and our own state
So without further ado, let's get down to it.
In Tuesday's issue of the Beacon

silliest stories I've ever read in my ...
Responsibility for gun control lies with parents
March 09, 2000
It's weird. Just when you think you've seen all there is to see in this
world, something new (or at least new to you) springs up, and it's usually

So what ...

mention one that isn't finished yet, but, just from its home page, looks
like it has real potential. Check out www.antivalentines.com and see for

First off, let's continue the countdown to Big Money Day for those who sell
cards, candy and flowers (or as some call it, Valentine's Day) with this
week's Anti-Valentine's Day Web site.
