Humanity Fell to a New Low in Kansas City Yesterday

I'm sitting here and struggling how to begin this article. Society as whole might have fallen to an all-time low yesterday in Kansas City when Chiefs' quarterback Matt Cassel was drilled by Baltimore Ravens' defensive end Haloti Ngata in the fourth quarter of yesterday's game at Arrowhead Stadium. Cassel went down in a heap and lay motionless for several minutes, obviously injured and the Kansas City fans did something I have never seen before or ever thought I would see....they cheered. Let me say that again...THEY CHEERED.

Teenager Licks an Entire New York City Subway Station Handrail [Video]

My wife Lisa and I get very frustrated with our little guys when they do not wash their hands. My wife is a nurse and she has tried in vain to get them to wash their hands as often as possible, especially after using the bathroom. At first glance, you could say this kid licking the entire length of NYC subway station handrail is just a kid acting dumb and doing something kind of gross. This actually goes way beyond gross, really.

Should Elementary School Kids Get Cut From Sports Teams?

I only ask this question because of something I have been watching over the last two days at my son's school, which I will not identify because it's not about the school - it's about the system in general. The last two days were tryouts for the school's boy’s basketball team. This particular school has a boy’s team and a girl’s team. Yesterday was cut day and the kids who were cut, were absolutely devastated and it got me to thinking. Is getting cut at that level a good thing? My instincts say no.

Should Children Be Kept Off Trampolines [Poll]

While driving around the Tri-State on any given day, it is amazing how many back yards have trampolines. Some have the safety nets, that are usually required for insurance purposes, and some without nets at all. My boys had a trampoline in the back yard until just recently when a tear in the pad got bigger and bigger. The American Academy of Pediatrics said today that trampolines are too dangerous for children in light of more than 100,000 trampoline injuries reported in 2009.

Insured Body Parts – What Part Could You Not Afford to Lose? [VIDEO]

On Friday night at Kenny Kent Toyota, I started feeling my voice starting to fade. By the time Race for the Cure rolled around the next morning, I could barely be heard. Today, I have NO voice at all. So, because of what I do for a living - TALK - I can't work tomorrow. That got me thinking, I can't afford to lose my voice. If I DID really lose my voice, I would have no career. WOW, maybe I should get my voice insured. Others have insured certain money making body parts, why not me?
