Despite Mother Nature conspiring to keep me down, that’s not enough to make these Morning Reads anything other than excellent.

i was getting anxious, wednesday doesn’t begin until ed’s morning reads are posted!!!

Ed January 22, 2014 at 8:39 am

Yeah, that’s the ticket!

if i can find the article i might post it here, but unlike ga where we bulldoze the tents of the homeless, utah is eliminating homelessness by giving them homes…they get an apt and are assigned a social worker to help them find work and get cleaned up and such..the number crunchers found it to be more economical than the cost of enforcing vagrancy laws and the money spent on homelessness related healthcare and the like…just a thought…

Ed January 22, 2014 at 9:09 am

I think that’s a good idea. I would also assume that Utah has a much smaller homeless population than Georgia making it slightly less feasible here.

Utah is colder and has more snow. Indoors is kind of a need .

Scott65 January 22, 2014 at 11:00 am

Current Temp in ATL 23
Current Temp in SLC 25
So your point was…? Ok so we dont have snow (that might change here in the next couple of weeks.)

Ellynn January 22, 2014 at 11:55 am

I was thinking average temp and heating days…

Free housing for the homeless sounds like a good idea until you realize that you have to become some dude’s 20th spouse to qualify.

I kid.

You can’t make this 5h!t up: Oregon’s Multnomah County GOP auctions off a rifle to honor MLK and Lincoln. They could’ve a least raffled a pistol in Lincoln’s honor.

UPS shouldn’t worry. Their business is booming, so much so they had to hire 30K more temps than expected. They’ll book the costs and move on.

They certainly work hard enough. They deliver into the night in my area and I saw them dropping packages on MLK day.

Perhaps they should just shorten the award’s name to just using his initials.

Georgia State football link is not working

John Vestal January 22, 2014 at 10:49 am

That would explain attendance.

Lea Thrace January 22, 2014 at 10:55 am

I cackled at an unneccesarily loud level after reading that reply. Thanks. Needed it this morning.

Ed January 22, 2014 at 12:25 pm

It works now.

Jerks.

So how can a team that lost in the second round be the winner. It states ” When the dust clears, whichever squad is left standing earns the right to be called the worst college football team of the last decade” which seems to be the 2012 Massachusetts Minutemen.

Ed January 22, 2014 at 12:48 pm

The team that “loses to” means they are worse than the team than they “lost to.”

(1) Happy 17th BD to my youngest! (afaik)

(2) Has anyone *else* who has recently changed their gravatar™ found that it’s not showing up on this site?

Scott65 January 22, 2014 at 11:02 am

Mine updated

John Vestal January 22, 2014 at 11:21 am

Guess I’ll try a re-update.

John Vestal January 22, 2014 at 12:36 pm

Viola! (which was Grandma Vestal’s name, btw)

xdog January 22, 2014 at 1:28 pm

Names have gone to hell. In this world names either require arbitrary punctuation and phonetic spelling or sound like a personal care product.

My gms were named Velora and Francesca.

Ellynn January 22, 2014 at 6:47 pm

Looking at some of and my grandfathers sisters, cousins and great aunts…Alagunda Gertrude Teckla, Euphrosine Friedrickialind, Petronella Wendelina Theresia, Rosalie Magdelena Venetta , Iguenia Lucutina, and my persomal favorate Remigus Tieney Hilaria – (these are first and middle names) they may have wished they had the options of punctuation and phonetic spelling.

xdog January 23, 2014 at 8:16 am

Those are some great Latin and Greek names. I hope your family is keeping the tradition alive.

Mrs. xdog has me watching the Australian Open, players named Flavia, Dominika, Simona, Agnieska, Aravane. Play on ladies!

Ellynn January 23, 2014 at 12:21 pm

Most of these are German. The ones still in use in our family are Rosalie (Rose-Ollie), Tieny, and Iguenia. Iguenia. I don’t even know how to say Alagunda. We called her Trudi.

Ed January 23, 2014 at 12:51 pm

Yeah, these are better than you thought.
