Tuesday Whatever

Obituary: Former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt, 96, has died. He held the job from 1974 to 1982.

I hate it when courts don't publish documents that are public documents. I am not sure, but it seems like that WCSD principal who appealed her dismissal a couple of years back has prevailed, at least for now.

She appealed an arbitration award that was against her, so it would appear it got reversed.

Again, I am not sure.

I wish I had known that I could have gotten my termination reversed or that I could have sued the district for negligence. It was so cut and dried the district broke the law.

Anybody who criticizes the trans movement faces censorship, even violence, for their views.

The "t" issue is actually nonpartisan.

This is a nice piece about the memorable six months of American Pharoah's capturing the public's imagination.

I am glad the writer mentioned the 1973 Marlboro Cup. It was indeed the greatest field ever assembled for a single race. Five champions, including Secretariat, were in it. Secretariat destroyed that field with the greatest of ease and in then-world record time:


On the other hand, maybe we should stick a fork in Marco Rubio.

Obituary: Actress Betsy Drake, 92, also known as the third wife of film legend Cary Grant, has died. She died in London. She retired from films after she had divorced Grant in 1962.

Drake was born in in Paris in 1923 to wealthy parents — her grandfather had built Chicago’s Drake Hotel — but the 1929 stock market crash sent the family reeling, and she spent her childhood being moved among relatives on the East Coast.

She took up acting, and Kazan selected her as one of the founding members of the Actors Studio in New York.

It is sure a liberating lifestyle, isn't it?

I can't believe anybody justifies that crap.

Another obituary: Former jockey Pat Eddery, 63, one of the most successful jockeys of all time, has died. He was based in Europe and appeared in several Breeders' Cup races. He retired in 2003.

Eddery had been in poor health in recent years.

"Pat was a truly great jockey in every way," said Steve Drowne, joint president of the Professional Jockeys Association. "He was the man we all aspired to be in the saddle. Everyone looked up to him in the weighing room. He was just a great person to be around—a professional's professional."
