Charlie's Inside Corner: June 2

At last check I've had ZERO invitations to speak at a graduation ceremony! My fame must elude them. Speaking of fame, I would like to take a few lines to speak about our unsung heroes, and to be politically correct, heroines.

Charlie's Inside Corner: May 19

All of the talk about possible Big 12 Conference expansion has been "Much Ado About Nothing"! Every school with the possible exception of Dundee, Kansas, has been mentioned as a possibility. It reminds me of the rumors that whirl around a high school in the wintertime as to who the "Big Man On Campus" is taking to the prom. The final result has been, "He ain't taking no one, he's staying home!"
