Rock chalk shock hawk! That could only be better if there were an “emawk” at the end.


With all the excitement about the Shockers, it might be a good time to remind everyone that WSU’s colors are yellow and black, not black and gold. There is a difference.


Something is seriously wrong with our leadership when President Obama gives Egypt $250 million. This could have gone to our ally Israel. It could have gone to tax reduction, which would help get this country moving again. To give it to Egypt, not our friend, is an abomination.

To all TV stations: You have news, weather and sports. Please give the news and put the sports on the sports. Sports are not news.
