I was born in 1939 when the world was still in black and white and didn’t see my first colors until I was 6. Even then, the only color spectrum I could see ranged from deep red to pale yellow and I only started to see greens, blues and violets around age 10.I remember the day I was born thinking what a complete waste of retinal cone cells. I understand that a large fraction of rural Americans can still only see black and white and are unaware that election maps show their states to be red.

Some creative unique sporting events. Humor is in the commentary. No guffaws but if you’re of the same mind you will sit there through all the events with an amused smile on your face. Towards the end, again if you are of a like mind, you will be rooting for your favorite.
This has got to be the greatest most elaborate insult in American media history.
The piece is long but the first 20 minutes are the setup required for the full appreciation of that last 5 mins of pure comedy insult. If the Emmys don't have a greatest insult category they should make one. In fact, they should institute a new award called the Oliver for the most perfect public insult by a media production.
Can't wait to see the one they do after this next SLAPP suit.
