Wolfe’s Woofer: What Did You Do Today?
I said, “I don’t know, Vernon, Yolanda might not like the idea of me showing up at your house for dinner without telling her ahead of time.” “She won’t mind—honest, she won’t,” Vernon said. “She don’t do nothing all day but lay around the house and take care of the two babies.” At Vernon’s we parked in the drive and Vernon said, “Come on. We’ll go through the kitchen.” When the kitchen door shut Vernon said, “Ooh, what the devil happened here?”

Doctor Love: Boys will be boys
Dear Doctor Love, A friend and I were at a beach bar, and a girl walked by wearing a bikini. We mentioned a few of her finer assets and made a joke about what we’d do if her husband wasn’t so big. Just harmless guy talk. The women at the next table started going on about degrading women and how guys are just basically pigs. If we aren’t supposed to look, why do they dress that way? Men are turned on by hot women, and if she’s dressed for sex, we’re going to think about sex. Women need to decide what they want. If they’re not looking for attention, they need to put some clothes on. /s/Boys will be boys

Update on the New River
On Friday 6th September 2019, the Department of the Environment (DOE) established a task force to deal with the current condition of the New River. During the first meeting of the task force, several options that could be taken to urgently remediate the conditions of the river were discussed. One recommendation which the task force looked at favorably was the use of aerators to reintroduce oxygen into the river. One of the points discussed was the probability that any intervention conducted may have both beneficial and adverse effects. In this case, oxygen will be reintroduced into the ecosystem; however, this may also increase the release of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), which produces a strong “rotten egg” odor, into the air.

Big congrats to Carolee Chanona who released her first Sailfish yesterday
