Going through the ‘Jerry’ program

This week, Jerry Jones, in the most Jerry Jones of ways, sort of halfway contradicted the Cowboys’ longstanding response to player off-the field issues. In the past you may have noticed that any time a player ran into trouble with the law, or failed a drug test, or said something damaging to the organization in […]

Movie Review by Justin Tubbes – 3 out of 4 Tubs Harkening back to the days of Charlton Heston screaming at a toppled, broken Statue of Liberty, “Planet of the Apes” has withstood the test of time as a successful franchise, a franchise that imagines what would happen if apes – our closest ancestor – […]

Buyer remorse sets in for flyover country trump voters

Out here in flyover country, you can’t hardly go by the feed store without running into a reporter doing one of those Wisdom of the Heartland stories.
