A glimmer of hope

The University of Minnesota needs a new football coach. Given that a new, on-campus football stadium has been approved (artist's rendition here), the job is suddenly much more attractive. But who could they get?

Well, Tony Dungy (a former U of M quarterback) came here last year and lobbied for the stadium. I admit that such a high-profile hire is unlikely, and "Dungy on Tuesday denied a report out of Minneapolis saying he was near the top of the Golden Gophers' wish list and that there was mutual interest." But you never know. I offer the following evidence.
I have some faint hope that Dungy is a liar too.

Pat Robertson is a putz

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - In what has become an annual tradition of prognostications, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson predicted Tuesday that a terrorist attack on the United States would result in "mass killing" late in 2007.

"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," he said during his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network. "The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."

Robertson said God told him during a recent prayer retreat that major cities and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September.

Consider this: Robertson gets better ratings than CNN. That is scarier to me than his delusional rantings.
