    Hoping that someone else would mention her meltdown.
    Does anyone think "that" cartoon was racist ?
    I used to admire her for her mobility with that big body,
    but she behaved like an entitled diva.

    What is all the fuss about? Doesn't any remember John McEnroe? Didn't he act as badly if not worse? Was he "punished to same same degree and fined?

    He got a game penalty once at the 1987 U.S. Open, for shouting obscenities.

    Did he have to fork over money? Was he ever fined?

    That was before political correctness took over our entire civilization.

    In the more cultured societies, there is a clear difference between political correctness and professional decorum, not to mention a lack of manners.

    Well, it can be said that manners are a thing of the past, especially if one has become rich
    after rising from the gutter. Big bank balance, very small empathy for others.
    It is just me,me,me,me, nothing or nobody else matters.

    I think that it's great that America maintains the cultural traditions of its Afro-Israeli founders ! :D

    I'm so close to you that we are neighbors. I will defend you to my last breath!

    That's the irony of it. We are neighbors and friends, there's more in common between upstate New York and Ontario than either of us and most of both our countries. The line somebody drew between us meant nothing, but now it does, and none of us want it.
    Shopping in Buffalo was a regular event, we vacationed at Tupper Lake every summer, and now I wouldn't set foot in the USA if you paid me.
    And I'll be honest, I really miss you guys.

    But we're off topic.

    Cheers mate

    For me, for many years it was getting together with my friends from DC for the Canadian Grand Prix at Mosprt and the US Grand Prix in Watkins Glen.

    Great people, beautiful countryside - good times. :)

    Watkins Glen is great. After the race would go to the park with a nice picnic basket and a couple bottles of New York State wine. The one thing I like about this state are the wineries!

    Anybody here from Minnesota ?

    Well, I got some bad news for you - MY Buffalo Bills
    (okay, so they're on the other side of the Lake) are going to take YOUR Vikings to Football School this afternoon !

    Hey Brutus - I was at Bills Stadium one time when I was driving back up from DC, on one of your July The Fourth's. And guess who showed up to help celebrate - The Stones. Oh yeah, a good time was had by all ! :)

    Believe it or not, I'm not a football fan. I do like watching motor sport racing. Rally racing is awesome. I find formula 1 (F1) boring. Thought that formula E (FE) would be more interesting. Have to give it more time I guess.
