How about Lane Kiffin for today's Rushmore. If you combine, the Raiders fan base, the USC fan base, and the Vol Nation, I would say that he qualifies based on those numbers alone. He also scores bonus or style points for proving that the late Al Davis was not as senile as the world thought he was.

Google Daniel Snyder and you will see that his problems are long-standing and go well beyond the team's name. He is a dumpster fire of an owner who has managed to antagonize the team, the fans and the D.C. media with his childish antics. His revolving door policy of head coaches is more responsible for the current sorry plight of the team than any other issue, including the team's name. And that's why karma got its payback.

Snyder is an embarrassment to the league, and that in itself is an accomplishment, considering its continuing saga of concussion stories and physical abuse police reports.

LSU 30 Florida 27!

Hey Muschump, did you see all of those disappointed people in the stands. I'm glad that they were disappointed. Stay classy, coach, just don't tempt karma.

"Who know what might happen if all the sudden congregations started acting like shepherds instead of judges?"

Or Christians instead of Pharisees.

Master Jay:

Do not omit Chuck Connors from today's Rushmore. He had a better career as The Rifleman back in the black and white TV days of my misspent youth but he was also a professional athlete in 2 sports.

He was a journeyman big league baseball player for the Dodgers among several other teams but he also played professional basketball for the Celtics and the Rochester Royals, helping them win the 1946 championship. No, he didn't cure cancer or help the cause of world peace but he was a hero to a lot of us back then with that fast firing Winchester carbine of his.

"And the sad sack who killed him is now on the government dole as we pay for his medical care in jail (and he needs much)."

Richard Manning, Gallman's executioner, died before his case could come to trial. His case was "abated by death." The county probably paid the cost of his care after his arrest up till his death if there were no other resources, responsible parties or insurance that were liable for those costs.

"I'm delighted, Ms. ANA JIMENEZ, that you and Senator Corker have volunteered to fight in Syria."

Me too and I think they should take Dick Cheney, who had "other priorities" during the Vietnam War, and all of the other chickenhawks with them.

My choice for the biggest winner of the weekend is the SEC Network. Some of the cheesy ads remind me of the old Jefferson Pilot days but the features were interesting and the games well called. However, Tim Tebow's debut was at best a charitable "C."

Regarding your comment on red letter sins in every profession; "In politics it's very little."

See the results of the 4th congressional district race to verify the wisdom of your words.
