Leading Off (4/29/10): the Blame Game Edition

1. A lot of people are in trouble this week for saying things they shouldn’t have. You learned about Mike Bacsik yesterday. Today, it’s the First Baptist Church, which aired a racial slur on its Sunday morning broadcast. Since this morning’s theme is blame, I blame technology. Without Twitter and radio, these people wouldn’t be in trouble. So there you have it.

2. Several Dallas teachers are mad because they were given money for doing a job well done, they spent that money, and now they’re being told they have to give it all back. Apparently, someone forgot to file some paperwork. I think it’s obvious where the blame goes on this one: the teachers. I mean, who gets a bonus and then spends it? That’s just ridiculous.

3. So let’s talk about my weekend plans. I have friends coming into town. We were all going to get dressed in silly costumes (or homemade shirts because we’re too lazy to come up with a true concept) and go play in the mud for a few hours at the Warrior Dash. As I mentioned Monday, those plans were suddenly put on hold. Then Tuesday they were back on. Then Wednesday they were back off. Today? Who knows? At this point, it’s a he said/she said game of blame. I really don’t care who’s in the wrong. I just wanna run through some muddy obstacles and get a helmet.

4. This little piece doesn’t fit my ranting theme, but it’s interesting anyway. Irving-based Boy Scouts just released a new badge: the video games badge. Yep. Video games.
