LET'S LET RED HERRING SLEEP WITH THE FISHES

Now that the Obama education speech fears have gone unfounded, maybe Florida Republican Party chairman Jim Greer will bring the focus back to the $175,000 in party funds that former state House Speaker Ray Sansom spent taking his family to Europe.

Maybe.

Greer initially boasted about labeling Obama's benign speech as an attempt to indoctrinate kids to socialist values. He backed off the condemnation after reading the script. But if you ask me, Greer simply was launching his campaign to make the state fish the red herring....

By the way, I like the idea of the osprey being the state bird. Maybe we can have a state bird and a state hawk....

Seen on a bumper sticker: Jesus Is My Insurance Provider....

One week it's somebody hurling a pit bull at cops. Now we've got a guy in Madeira Beach throwing jellyfish at beachgoers. How long before we get to squirrel tossing?...

Entering Wednesday's game, the Rays had gone 3-10 since trading Scott Kazmir, and that's not a coincidence. No matter what was said, the trade sent a signal that management had lost faith in 2009.

The trade may be good for the future, but it did nothing for the present....

Looking for curios, doilies or those decorative knick-knacks that always accentuate interior decor? Well don't go looking at Riverview United Methodist's "Manly Man Yard Sale" from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The church, at 8002 U.S. 301, promises yard tools, hand tools, power tools, electronic games and sporting goods.

If it could get Tim Allen to make an appearance, it would be perfect....

That's all I'm saying.
