Boring stories of glory days

In "Glory Days," Bruce Springsteen sings about old friends getting together to talk about old times, but while it starts out nostalgic, it turns into a rumination about lost opportunities:
Now I think I'm going down to the well tonight
and I'm going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it
but I probably will
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
a little of the glory of, well time slips away
and leaves you with nothing mister but
boring stories of glory days

That's what I think about when I see the center of today's Enquirer front page devoted to the 2002 Roger Bacon High basketball team, which beat LeBron James five years ago in the state final. Another boring story of glory days. Is this the best the Enquirer can do on its front page? Put this story back in Sports where it belongs, and put some real news on the front page.

Absolutely. The coverage of sports stories on the front page seems to be accelerating. Sports is not news and an old sports story is definitely not news!

You know... if a horse ain't got nothing to say, it might as well shit.

A horse HAS to do something and shitting is ALWAYS required.

Shitting is good. Sometimes. Depending on the way you choose to look at it, shitting is good. Shitting all the time probably isn't.......

Fundamental why to look at it. Shitting isn't bad unless it is ALL the time.

When will the news sources stop the full time crap in Cincinnati?

The first sentence of this story is completely insensitive. It is not poker cards--It is lives:

MOORES HILL, Ind. - Tragedy struck a poker run Saturday afternoon when three people on motorcycles were killed and another three were injured in a crash with a car.

The large group of motorcycle enthusiasts were traveling east on S.R. 350 just east of the Ripley-Dearborn County line around 3:20 p.m. when motorists traveling west began to pull off to the side of the road to give the motorcycles ample room to get past. An 18-year-old from Milan, Ind., who was at the end of the line of motorists, drove his Mercury Sable across the center line and struck at least three motorcycles, according to Indiana State Police.

Killed were:

• Joseph Hurley II, 43, of Harrison;

• Lisa Rhodes, 40, of Harrison, a passenger on Hurley's motorcycle;

• David Bartley, 40, of Greendale, Ind.

The driver of the vehicle, Bryant Withers, was taken to University Hospital where he was treated and released.

Injured were:

• Dale House, 50 of Florence;

• Connie House, of Florence, a passenger on Dale House’ motorcycle;

• Pete Izzo of North Bend.
