The Washington Redskins are under fire, again, about not being politically correct in this day of not possibly offending anyone. The name, Redskins, it seems to offend some people. The current owner has no intention of changing the name to anything other than what it is. We may have a solution though… Remember the Tomahawk Chop by the Atlanta Braves fans years ago and the political correctness of stopping it? That offended people too. Guess what, it’s still around. So are the Chicago Blackhawks, the Florida State Seminoles and yup, the Atlanta Braves. So on that note, it is time to get a little ODD.




Black Magic

 – 1¼ oz. Vanilla vodka

– ½ oz. Patron XO (tequila-based coffee liqueur)

– 1 Maraschino cherry, for garnish

– Dry ice (optional)

Add ingredients to a shaker filled with ice, and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a cherry. Add the dry ice per instructions to create the boiling effect.

No mixers, no juices, no fuss. Which means be careful when indulging. A great way to start the day. Helluva a lot better than a straight coffee.

Today, I was walking home from piano lessons when I see my dad on a bike so I shout after him. He turns his head around and then runs into a tree. It wasn’t my dad.

Today, I was on the webcam with my boyfriend. I could see that he was on the couch, and alone, so I took off my shirt and smiled, waiting to see his reaction. He smiled at me but then kept looking in another direction. I playfully asked “What’s so distracting?” His answer: “History Channel”.

    I’m offended by the people who are offended by everything. Stop whining and go do something productive.

      Your offendedness at people being offended by things that most people don’t find offensive is offending me.

        Then it would be a good thing that I’m not offended at anything that should be offending me or possibly anyone else. Otherwise it might be considered offensive by the offended person. 🙂

    As a Cleveland Indians fan and a supporter of First Nations right I’ve thought quite a bit about this issue. Should they change? Yes, the can use the name Spiders, Clevelands old national league team I mean Cy Young himself and the great Nap Lajole used to play for that team untill it was destroyed by the Jeff Lorias of their era. I don’t see why washington couldn’t change their name to The Monuments. Same for Atlanta and Kanas City, and I come from an area that still regards Custer as hero and a martyr not the buffoon and gloryhound he actually was. Okay that ran a bit long sorry, stay odd my friends.

    As for the Redskins logo, which is more offensive, an accurate depiction of a native American, designed by a native American to represent a team that uses a name that native Americans called themselves, or a cartoonish leprechaun depicting the “Fighting” Irish (perpetuating the stereotype that Irish people are brawlers) representing a Catholic University named after a French Cathedral?

    Now, to my nit picking. Why is Dorothy always shown wearing the ruby slippers? The book came first and in the book, she wore silver slippers. MGM decided on the red ones because of the dawning of Technicolor. The red really popped.
