It’s no bleepin’ fun being the Denver Broncos. Pressed on why the Broncos don’t run the football more, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave stood tall under annoying pressure from the nagging media and threw an F-bomb. Reporter: “You lead the league in yards per carry. So you’re really good at it.” Musgrave: “Yeah, yeah. Let’s keep it going. Let’s get some more. Great thoughts. I second the motion. I second the (bleeping) motion.” What’s newsworthy here? Musgrave’s middle name is Bland. Uncle Bill is the last person in this organization you’d guess would curse for public consumption, with a camera from the team’s website rolling during a press conference. He put the correct in PC. But with a single curse word uttered Thursday, Musgrave succinctly and honestly summed up the frustration of working for a 3-5 football team. Nothing has gone the way the Broncos have drawn it up. The seat of coach Vance Joseph … [Read more...] about Kiszla: Curses, foiled again! Like most bad NFL teams, Broncos lead league in four-letter words.

OTTAWA, Ontario — For the seasonal salad at the popular Oz Kafe here, the shavings of Gouda cheese are a salty and delicious culinary accompaniment. To the United States, they are an element of an increasingly bitter trade dispute over dairy products, one that threatens to undermine its decadeslong agreement with Canada. Canada’s long-standing policy of managing its dairy supply with production quotas and high levies on imports has become an intractable sticking point in negotiations over the North American Free Trade Agreement, one that risks scuttling a 25-year-old pact that has stitched together the economies of Mexico, Canada and the United States. President Donald Trump has seized on the practice as unfair and insisted that he is willing to jettison Canada by the end of the week if it does not drop its dairy tariffs of 270 percent. On Tuesday, the chief trade negotiator for the United States, Robert Lighthizer, said Canada was “not making concessions in areas we … [Read more...] about NAFTA’s fate hinges on a four-letter word: milk
Erin Jensen USA TODAY Published 10:03 AM EDT Sep 20, 2018 Watch out Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly, Snoop Dogg and Kanye could be rap's next big beef. Snoop showcased his bark in a very NSFW clip from an interview with SiriusXM's DJ Suss One, which drops in its entirety Saturday. When the host of the "Hip Hop Nation" channel hesitated to bad-mouth President Trump outright, explaining many of his fans "get mad at me when I talk bad about him," Snoop was not having it. "Well, you need to know that a lot of your fans is racist," the rapper whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., said. "Ain't no (expletive) way around it." Snoop, 46, added that he tells people "straight up" if they like Trump, they're "racist" and that he feels Trump "drew the lines" when he started singling people out. "Before him, there were no lines," Snoop said. "Everybody was everybody. We respected everything. We didn’t trip."

Florida lawmakers – well, some of them – love to shout to the heavens that this is a low-tax state. If they could rewrite the rules of language to make "tax" a four-letter word, it would be mandatory to teach it that way in public school classrooms.Alas, while they are spreading confetti to celebrate all those tax reductions, we are seeing the cost to the public good when revenues sink too low. In a state like this one experiencing runaway growth, the low-tax zeal can (and does) have a bad effect in places where the public kind of needs to be fully operational — in this case, transportation and public schools.RELATED: School Board to place sales tax hike on November ballotBoth areas need lots more money to meet demand, and there haven’t been many golden gifts from Tallahassee to meet that.

He could just as easily have been talking about “LOVE,” his own signature artwork created in the mid-1960s. One of the most recognizable images of the 20th century, it is deceptively simple in design: The word love rendered in all capitals, its first two letters stacked atop its second two, with the O italicized and suggestively tipped to the right. Launched as a drawing, then a painting, and soon after a sculpture, it would quickly become a cultural phenomenon, gracing everything from book and album covers to postage stamps (330 million sold and counting), cuff links, and sneakers. Much of this output was unlicensed and spun far past its … [Read more...] about ‘LOVE’ and Other Four-Letter Words
