CNN cries politics on Ebola: Seriously?

A segment in the morning news rotation on CNN TV today is blasting politicians for, you know, playing politics with Ebola. Which is only noteworthy because of how CNN has itself been playing, um, well, media, with Ebola for days now.


Can UVA upset #21 Louisville? Heart says no, head says …

Try as I might, I can’t convince myself that UVA can pull it off this weekend against #21 Louisville.


Should the Washington Redskins change their name?

It would seem obvious that the Redskins name is death to Washington NFL franchise owner Daniel Snyder, who you would think would want the focus of those providing free media about his team be on things like whether Robert Griffin III and new coach Jay Gruden can lead a return to the playoffs and other on-field activities rather than on how big of a racist millions think the team owners and management have to be to continue using a slur as a team nickname.

Earlier this week, I laid out the argument for how the ACC had not one, but three national-title contenders. Florida State is the obvious one, at #2 in the BCS rankings after its 51-14 demolition of then-third-ranked Clemson last week.
