Denizens, I’m sure most of you remember about a year ago this time when I lost one of my best and dearest friends, Jeff Duke (his funeral was a year ago yesterday, if memory serves).  As you’ll recall, his death hit me pretty hard – to the point where I forsook a couple of very valuable days spent at the Lady’s side in Miami just to come back here for the funeral.

This hits me just about as hard.  Robert Plett was one of the charter members of that little band of Fidonet brothers known as the Lensnetters (LENS = Limbaugh Echo Nuke’m Squad) which continued as a loose-knit cadre of emailers to this day.  He also, up until recently, was a regular commenter to this blog; in fact, I’d been beginning to wonder why I’d not seen him in a while.

I guess now I know, don’t I?

Denizens, you’ll pardon me if this is the only post you see this weekend.  I’m gonna take some time to mourn – and I encourage those of you who knew him to do a little mourning yourselves.  The planet just lost a helluva good human being.

Denizens, those of you who know me know that I have plenty  of reason to hate Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Shove.  In addition to Donna McNabb, the Greatest Quarterback Ever In The History Of Ever, Ever™ and her his little buddy Terri Owens, there’s also the Gangsta Rap Thug of the NBA, Allen “The Answer” Iverson (must have been a really  stupid question) – and the recent sweep of the baseball locals by the Phillies and that ugly green furball they embarrassingly call a “mascot” has set my teeth on edge, as well.

But this piece of bovine excrement is worthy of an RCOB moment.

City high school students will be required to take a class in African and African American history to graduate, a move that education experts believe is unique in the nation.

It’s unique in that it’s the most insanely fuckwitted idea a school board has ever spewed out its collective piehole, that’s what’s unique about it.
