Thank Ahura Mazda It's Friday!

Unsafe SpacesI've spent much of the morning trying to formulate a calm, rational, thoughtful response to the lunacy that seems to be running rampant on our college campuses of late. I failed. If you follow the links and read about what is going on at the institutions mentioned (which are, trust me, just the tip of the iceberg), you will be tempted to conclude, as I have, that these places of "higher education" are chock full of ignorant, childish totalitarians who deserve to be booted out into the real world on their pampered asses. Let's see how far those Che Guevara t-shirts and semi-literate lists of "demands" get you then, kids...
There is one, and only one, appropriate response when these baby fascists start demanding things...

Things That Make Me Happy: Awards Edition
It was announced yesterday that Kansas City Royals Designated Hitter Kendrys Morales received an American League Silver Slugger award from the Hillerich & Bradsby company. He is the first Royal to win the award since Carlos Beltran in 2002.
Kendrys had a fine season, and the Royals certainly would not have become 2015 World Series Champions without his bat.

Until Next Time...Today is a Friday the 13th, so a lot of people are talking about that superstition, among others. And, because my mind works the way it works, I can't help thinking about Stevie Wonder's hit song "Superstition," from his Grammy Award-winning Talking Book album. Released as a single a little over 43 years ago (October 24, 1972, the week before Halloween), the song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart on January 23, 1973.
Due respect to Stevie, but I'm a blues-rock guy. Today's send-off is the 1986 music video of Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble performing Wonder's hit. The usual music video disclaimers apply. Enjoy...
