Nobody asked us, but...

You know, when you see or hear about something and you say, "Well, nobody asked me, but...," then hell or high water won't keep you from giving your opinion of what "should" be done, which, of course, may or may not agree with what everybody else thinks. So, here goes.

Now everyone seems to have an opinion about Max Baer aka Jethro Bodine. Frankly, would you buy a used car from this man? Give us a break, Max babe, the sleeveless black T-shirt, the black pants and the peace sign look like you just stepped out of the cast of "Grease."

Max, the '50s look is passe, except for Hot August Nights; and the peace signs would be better used by sending them to Osama, George, Saddam, Ariel, Kim, Yasir and Donald, to name a few.

On the plus side, we went down and looked at the old Wal-Mart building, and decided a "Jethro" themed casino and hotel would be a vast improvement over the ugly box building that's there. But lose the 200-foot oil derrick. Even the Ormsby House tops out at 120 feet. Eighty feet more would be "too much."

And while we're on the subject, let's hope it's fired with non-polluting natural gas and not that thar' oil you've been drillin'. So, Max, keep the neighbors happy and keep it shorter.

And how about Sheriff Ken Furlong? "He's here, he's there, he's everywhere," and in uniform, too. The sheriff's office is very visible these days, with the sheriff taking the lead. And the best part is, all the cops are pretty darn cute, but then we like men in uniform -- cops, firemen, military, whatever. Keep up the good work.

We're glad to see that the Carson High School Blue Thunder Band is getting loads of support. It's a "duh" moment when you move across from a high school and expect it to be quiet. On the flip side, it's good to see that the band is being accommodating and trying to work with the lady who complained. Go Senators!

Ketchup Bottles: After beating a ketchup bottle to death in a restaurant, puleez put in the plastic squeeze kind so we don't look like ketchup (or catsup, take your pick) murderers.

That's all for now. You can put just so many opinions in one column. More next week, and if you have a question or opinion, drop us a line and we may or may not pay attention.
