  • Grace Notes

    (Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is off this week, hopefully NOT working. This is one of her favorite columns from 2009.)

    Today I scrubbed my kitchen floor, on my knees with a bucket of sudsy water and a brush, “Cinderella-style.”
    After that I polished all the stainless steel and rubbed the countertops with stuff that made them gleam. Then I vacuumed all the wayward popcorn from underneath the couch cushions and cleaned both bathrooms.

  • Why some names and not others

    When I write the sports news, I am often amused and confused about the nicknames and mascots of high schools and colleges.  
    Most, if not all of you, are aware of the politically correct crowds dabbling in making school mascots completely milk toast and bland so as not to offend the most sensitive whiner in the country.  
    They have failed miserably with this though they did manage to change Marquette University from the Warriors, which is in no way offensive, to the Golden Eagles. Yet, the Golden State NBA team is still the Warriors.
