Impressionable utes weren't the only ones watching when Cincinnati Reds owner Bob Castellini (right) passed out victory cigars and then lit up after his team clinched the NL Central title at Great American Ball Park on Tuesday. Also watching at home on television were at least five whistle-blowers who noted that the Reds were violating Ohio's indoor-smoking ban. They called Cincinnati's health department to report the team and now the Cincinnati Enquirer reports the club is under investigation.So, apparently ice cream isn't the only thing that watchdog groups are after. Now, they're making the world safe from enjoyment. If they are caught by Ohio health inspectors, the Reds could be fined $100. That'll teach them.
As though smart people seek out other smart people and tend to congregate. As it is with those "Most Beautiful" lists, it's hard to believe that one city has smarter people than another. Especially when you consider which city the list chose as having the smartest, even though it isn't really a city ...
Washington, D.C. What the people who put the list together failed to realize is that having a college degree does not necessarily make one intelligent, or know that Washington isn't a city. That makes the people who made up the list among the least intelligent list-makers in America.
My list would be, "America's Most Intelligent Blog Readers" and list each of you ... just because you keep reading.
