David Fay is a bullshit artist. That is not the reason Shinnecock refused the 2015 Open. The USGA wanted to pay them $2.5 million less than in 2004. The members, rightfully, said screw you for taking our course and turning it into a tourist nightmare. Lying SOB.

I have a bald eagle who nests on my gutters and downspouts. Can't get rid of the f**ker,. But he does do a beautiful fly over when I walk down to the beach. His fishing abiltiies are seond to none. Lasy year, two chicks who are now gone.

Listening to the pros on Chambers Bay, none of them know what the hell they are going to do and how they are going to do it. This could be the ultimate windmill and clown putt putt course they have ever played. Worth watching even for those who know nothing about golf.

My ex associate/partner and friend was the Preident of the company who designed and built Ivanpah. He gave the christening speech. He is probably mortified knowing him. An Eton Man and American. Smart as hell but.....

OL, As a devout and practicing Catholic, I couldn't agree more with you. Sad isn't it. We have now corrupted our beloved church with progessive idiocy.

Oh, OL, don't you know how this fella from BA has caused a significant dry up in the Vatican revenue stream already. He just doesn't understand it yet. Our pastor is a young conservative guy from Jackssonville who is deeply worried about the level of donations, bequethments and other contributions that are always the lifeline of the parish. I was going to start a fund raiser with a starter amount for the school gymnasium. Forget it. They have my last major contribution except for the Sunday envelope. Francis needs to face reality. He is losing not gaining.

NK, Stopping in Lambertville, actually, since there is no way I can make it to Boston from Charlottesville based on our schedule and kenneling the dogs. Been to New Hope a long time ago. Was hard to get a room on a Friday night. Lots of the antique hipster crowd from Phlly come up that way I undertand. I'll let DoT know Sid Viciuos is making a guest appearance in front of Gowdy. That might make him renew his place of honour here:)

OL, Clint Eastwood owns PB with a LLC where he is the managing general partner. Japs took a licking on that sale just like Rockefeller Center. Frederick is taking a break from tennis camp on Wedenesday to go shark fishing out of Montauk. We leave tomorrow for 2 days in Charleston then onto Charlottesville, New Hope and finally Boston for 4 days before heading up to Hanover. Just instaled the Thule cargo box and all we need now at packed bags and calm dogs.

lyle, If memory serves me correctly, he i parroting Carter's last 18 months. At least Jimmah had Iran hostage crisis as his albatross. I still say he is going to do something dangerous just to finish "the transformation" and we don't have gutsy commanders or hard-ass politiicians to stop him.

HB, Man Tran. NK, never played it but I understand it is nice track. You know there is controvery about whether St. Andrew is the oldest. A lot of golf historians insist that The Edgewood Club at Tivoli, NY is much older and even though it started with only two holes and expanded to 9 it is the oldest continually played club in America. Quogue Field Club was built as an 18 hole club in 1887 a year before St. Andrews. Also, there is a club in St. Paul, Minnesota who claims it is older than St. Andrew. Lets end on a laugh: David Burge ‏@iowahawkblog 4h4 hours ago I am goING to, spend THE rest of to-DAY, tal-king like HillAry, CLIN-ton #InternationalTalkLikeHillaryDay

jimmyk, Just curious but has there ever been any studies on the effects of removing rent controls in NYC? Who leaves and who then comes in?

Another cop shooting down the road from me in Cocoa. http://www.mynews13.com/content/news/cfnews13/news/article.html/content/news/articles/cfn/2015/6/14/fhp_trooper_involved.html

We had another "random, out of the blue" cop shooting last night down I-95 in Cocoa. Highway Patrol trooper walks up to a red pickup truck parked in a PIlot service station to tell them their lights were defective and as the women driving starts looking for her license, the guy in the passenger seat opens fire. Trooper returns fire and kills him. Trooper in hospital, non-life threatening injury. War on Cops! Damn dangerous job.

Day 10 of the prison break manhunt. Stay out of the water in NC - two young kids lost their limbs yesterday at the same beach, hours apart. Sharks are also hungry down the beach from me in New Smyrna. Looks like Rachel is going to be transitioning back to a white women. Calls for resignation. Skips scheduled speech on the subject.

The world is safe and right. Al Sharpton questions Rachel Dolezal's Parents. http://www.examiner.com/article/msnbc-s-al-sharpton-questions-motives-of-rachel-dolezal-s-parents Just when you thought it wasn't safe to go outside, Al Sharpton reminds us that the world is still the way it was before he uttered his nonsense.

Bori is right about Francis. SJ is more than Society of Jesus, its also Social Justice and that is what he is all about. Unfortunately for my Pople he will soon learn how much money the church raises from wealthy American Catholics and how all of sudden that dries up. Catholic Chaities hardest hit. I blame Global Warming.

Just made a donation to Carly. Need to get her into the debates. She will either bring out the best or the worst in the others. You will know if she is moving up when the Times does atory on her luxury speedboat and her parking tickets.

MM, He should just stick to climate change and not get all wee-wee'd up on liturgical and biblical issues. BTW, that red JEB! logo he is using is the exact same one he used in 1994 for his governorship run. Please no more yesterdays:)

There has already been a lot of bitching and whining by the pro's about how difficult the greens are at Chambers Bay for the US Open next week. Here is a sample of what they are talking about. Bubba Watson sinks ridiculous putt during U. S. Open practice round. http://www.pga.com/news/golf-buzz/bubba-watson-sinks-ridiculous-putt-during-us-open-practice-round?cid=pgacomsocial_20150614_47506716&adbid=610095698420215808&adbpl=tw&adbpr=14063612 Golfer with best imagination wins this one.

Of course, I had to go to The Daily Mail to find all the details and photos of the Waldorf shooting. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3123274/Waldorf-Astorial-accidental-shooting-leaves-four-injured-one-shot-headshot.html Looks like a bunch of oligarchs, which Russia specializes in these days.

CH, It woiuld surprise me that Paglia would not like Carly as an intelligent woman but not her complete political positions. She would certainly appreciate her logic and directional assesment of the competiton. Hell, even Maurenen Dowd has to respecrt Carly but no agree with her.
