  • UK basketball is life...for now

    First, I wish to apologize for the terrible grammar in one of my sentences last week. The computer has “spell check, ” but it knows nothing about grammar.

The few who went to grade school and high school will know what I mean. Anyone who went through grade school and high school and had them for teachers had proper grammar pounded into their souls.

  • For those who belong to God, there’s no ‘whiplash’

    Last weekend I finally watched “Whiplash,” the movie with Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons.
    Miles grew up here in Citrus County, and J.K. Simmons is the bald guy in the Farmer’s Insurance commercials and used to be the psychiatrist on “Law and Order”, plus he was in a whole bunch of other stuff.
    The movie focuses on the relationship between Andrew Neiman (Teller), a student drummer at an elite Juilliard-type music school in New York City, and the studio jazz band instructor, Terence Fletcher (Simmons).
