A new era of West Virginia University football begins in a month. Let’s hope it offers as much drama on the football field this fall as it has off of the field the past few months!

I Didn’t Call The President A Racist Devil
Posted on 07.07.11 by Danny Glover @ 11:03 pm

[This is a reprint of a blog post I wrote at Beltway Blogroll on Sept. 22, 2006. It's one of my favorite stories about sharing the same name as a celebrity.]

I didn’t call the president a racist devil. That was Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez at the United Nations earlier this week. And I didn’t stand with Chavez at a church in Harlem, N.Y., when he called George Bush “an alcoholic and a sick man.”

That was Danny Glover the actor. I’m just a lowly journalist who hasn’t written word one about Chavez (until now). So please, please, please, stop sending me e-mails that read like this:

– “I’m very ashamed of you. I have been a great fan of yours. … Danny, your actions are traderous! (sic) You should be ashamed politically. But on a grander scale the issues are spiritual and you are aligned with the devil and against God because of what, politics? Don’t be a fool.”

– “Danny boy. If Chavez is your brother why don’t you move to Vennez. Don’t crap where you eat.”

– “I am sickened to live in the same country as you. I hope you don’t call yourself an American. May God help you.”

– “You, sir, are a piece of trash. Never again will I spend my money or time to patronize any movie or film that you have an active part in. You have sunken to the lowest levels of Americanism possible.”

– “I cannot believe you live in this country and confess to be a communist.”

By all means, boycott the movies of Danny Glover if you choose. Or maybe buy your gas somewhere other than Venezuela-backed Citgo, which is what bloggers like Michelle Malkin, Ed Morrissey and Mark Tapscott are doing or discussing. But please don’t protest in my in-box.

‘Smartphones To Do Dumb Things’
Posted on 07.02.11 by Danny Glover @ 12:26 pm

Another winning commercial from the ad wizards at Geico, this one aimed at techies:

Geico needs to stick with that theme in it’s commercials rather than the lame “That’s Amazing” series also airing simultaneously. This mermaid ad in particular is weak tea:

While I’m talking TV ads (and smartphones), I love Samsung’s spider ad for the Infuse 4G:

I actually would have missed it the first time it aired in our home but for the woman’s scream. That will get your attention!

The Case Of Metro’s ‘Serial Pooper’
Posted on 07.02.11 by Danny Glover @ 12:11 pm

If you want to see the incompetence of bureaucracy, look no further than the case of the “serial pooper” at a Washington, D.C., Metro station.

The Washington Examiner reports that earlier this week, a Metro passenger complained to a station manager about a pile of human waste on a bridge between the Metro station and property managed by another commuter train, Virginia Railway Express.

Rather than immediately assign one of Metro’s overpaid workers to clean the mess, the station manager made excuses about why it wasn’t Metro’s responsibility. He said the feces were on VRE’s property.

Metro eventually power-washed the bridge while VRE staffers watched, but by then, another pile had appeared, thus leading to the “serial pooper” theory.

So to recap: For four days, a pile of poop sat on a bridge while bureaucrats at two government-funded transportation agencies squabbled over who had to clean it up. Meanwhile, a That’s bureaucracy for you.
