Old News and New News

Old News:
I've been meaning to ask the following question(s) for some time but have not had time to post my question(s).

A few weeks ago, Tiger Woods made a public apology for some negative comments he had made about hockey.

Why has our world reduced itself to such a pitiful state of insecurity?
Why are we so quick to take offense, just because someone does not agree with us?
Honestly, do you think it was necessary for Tiger Woods to issue his apology? If your answer is in the affirmative, I really want to hear your pathetic reasons why [and there will be no apology from me for calling your reasons "pathetic"].

Bonus feature:
I'm tired of car commercials that try to brag about getting 20 mpg.
20 mpg is nothing to brag about. I had a Yugo back in the 80's that got 45 mpg [without being a hybrid.] Granted it was a small engine, but still...

New News:
We just survived a quick trip to Utah and Colorado. Word to the wise, don't forget your toiletry bag at the hotel. Such action makes for quite the inconvenience for the rest of the trip.

Don't travel on I-70 through Colorado and expect to cover the same distance in the same amount of time as if you were traveling on I-80 or I-40.
Why are all the pine trees on the eastern end of the Rockies dying?

To those we missed seeing during our brief stay, we wish there had been more time. It wasn't anything personal. So don't take offense.

Good neighbor rule:
Neighbor 1 likes to feed the free range bunnies in our neighborhood.
I'd rather build an owl box and let nature take its course.

What would you do in this situation if your garden was on the line? [and I don't want to hear about wire fencing either.]

Two words: Rabbit blind.
Okay, two more: Pellet gun.

Old news - Every time you turn around these days, somebody is demanding an apology for someone's comment - it just drives me crazy. And, I'm with you -pathetic reasons and no apology for the word pathetic.

New news - a nice big mouser-type cat should do the trick as well, even though pellet guns are more fun.

I'm cool with apologies if you go after a person, but hockey? Hockey is a sport. A hockey puck has no feelings. I'm with you--get over it PC police!

And good luck with the free-range bunnies. We screwed a big board over the door to our bunny's cage after she ate all the carrot tops and nibbled on the tomato leaves.

Yeah, whatever on not having time to visit! :) Glad you had a good trip even with the mishap with the toiletries.
