CURRENT STORIES


Randomly

by James Logue

News editor

Here are some random thoughts I thought that I will list in the order in which I thought them. I had thought about listing them in random order, but that seems a bit redundant. I also briefly considered listing them in alphabetical order, but that would certainly impress no one. Listing them in chronological order might be a bit obsessive, but in the long run it's probably the best option.

I was walking in downtown Clarksburg the other day and I noticed that atop the new light poles, the city has installed small speakers. On this particular afternoon, the music of choice was Kenny G.

Kenny G.

I thought the city's goal was to entice people to come downtown. Cranking up Kenny G ain't going to do it.

After eating so much Thanksgiving turkey on Thursday and subsequent leftovers since, I've developed an addiction to tryptophan. I may have to go into detox.

I was having lunch with a friend the other day and he was trying to explain the BCS rankings and the bowl picture to me when all of a sudden his head exploded.

Needless to say, I couldn't finish my lunch.

And I had to pick up the check.

I am now developing a bald spot as I approach my 50th birthday. It can keep my clogged arteries, jowls and liver spots company.

I really don't have liver spots. I was just kidding.

If I hear Bing Crosby singing "White Christmas" one more time, I may kill somebody.

Have you noticed that people who write columns use these things a lot: n n n. They're great aren't they? I don't know what they're called but they clearly indicate that the writer has moved from one topic to another. Why, without a n n n, readers might get a bit confused. But a well-place n n n can mean all the difference. Everyone should have a supply of n n n on hand in case they write letters or e-mails and want to abruptly switch topics.

I wish I had invented n n n. I might have been able to retire early.

Enough already.
