On Rough Month For School Hater Jeb Bush

@jolie The way to train for those vocations is to train for the same vocations, but without the "sports" in front of it. Want to learn about the business of sports? Study business. Want to learn about sports marketing? Study marketing. Want to learn about sports finance? ...you get the idea. "Sports management" as an undergraduate (or high school or, god forbid, elementary) focus is pretty ridiculous and utterly pointless. I suppose the same is true for any number of hyperfocused majors/emphases but this is the one with which I am most familiar. I am not sure who is more at fault - millennials (and their parents) who think that every academic and extracurricular pursuit HAS to be hyperfocused ... or the business side of academics that keep coming up with shiny new "catchy" areas of study. Or maybe something else. I don't know what I'm talking about.

On Sind Sie Bereit Für Ein "Schneefälle"?

@freetzy That's how it reads in German, too; it's not just some sort of inadvertently blunt Google translation. And yeah, that's pretty much it.

On The Politician Full Of "Hot Air"


Detroit is a riverfront metropolis, not a lakefront metropolis. While much of the Detroit area borders upon Lake St. Clair, the city itself borders on the Detroit River. I expect a full retraction and apology. Thank you.
