Chuck's List: Putting Snoop Whatever on blast

A one-man opinion poll.

  • Satwant Singh Kaleka

    The president of Oak Creek Sikh Temple died a hero. More senseless tragedy this week in America. A racist took his angst out on a peaceful people, killing seven and wounding several others. But Sunday's grim result could have been worse, if not for Kaleka. He fought with the shooter, losing his life in the process, but his sacrifice saved others. News coverage for the Sikh Temple killings wasn't as intense as it was in the aftermath of the Aurora massacre. There are numerous, legitimate reasons for that, as well as others I fear aren't legitimate. But make no mistake, we encounter few finer stories of heroism than the one authored by Satwant Singh Kaleka.

  • Michael Phelps

    Well, it's over. Michael Phelps has swum his last professional lap. Wow, what a career! He leaves his Speedo on a poolside hook, but he leaves the sport with a record 22 Olympic medals (18 golds). So, what's next for Phelps? Personally, I have a goal. And I've yet to attain that goal, though I'm working toward this particular accomplishment that may serve as the centerpiece for my legacy on Earth. At 41, I envy the man who achieves his ultimate dreams at age 27 and has the rest of his life to look forward to. What's next for Phelps? Whatever he wants. Congrats, dude.

  • Catcows


    It seems that the cattle industry is leaving a deep hoofprint on the environment. The accumulative effect of gas emissions from cattle is believed worse for the environment than exhaust from automobiles and factory pollution. So what do we do about it? Well, we're not giving up our hamburgers and steaks anytime soon. And we can ask as politely as we want, but we'll never keep cows from farting. So, I say we steal a page from the auto industry. When environmental concerns rose to the forefront, the hybrid car became en vogue. So, I've decided we should cross cows with the one animal I believe is the least gassy in the animal kingdom. Cats. Meow! Catcows could be the key to a cleaner and cooler future. A cow that can be taught to poop in a litter box will save us billions. And imagine the money we'll make from hoof-scratching posts, cattle litter and six-foot tall yarn balls to be pushed around the pasture. Why does a catcow lick itself? Because it can.

  • Carly McGehee

    Carly McGehee

    The latest fool created from the Chick-fil-A scandal. She organized the same-sex couple kiss-in that drew something like nine people to Chick-fil-As around the nation. I'm exaggerating, but the paltry turnout paled in comparison to the 600,000 folks fellow fool Mike Huckabee's call to action drew. The perfect protest for Carly McGehee and friends was to go to Chick-fil-A and eat a sandwich. Don't let those that oppose your beliefs reduce you to public demonstration over a chicken restaurant owner's right to his own personal beliefs. Let Mike Huckabee be the fool and sleep well at night knowing you didn't let politics, religion, or attempts at division determine where you ate lunch that day.

  • Greg Jamison

    Do you have the money or not? The city of Glendale spent a great deal of time building the cart to put before their new horse. And now, the city and Coyotes hockey fans are left wondering if the Jamison group is coming to save hockey in Arizona or extinguish it once and for all. Apparently, Jamison doesn't have the financial backing to purchase the team after all. And if he does, he certainly hasn't rallied to snuff out rumors that he doesn't. The Coyotes players, fans and the city of Glendale have been put through too much to be deceived by some pie-in-the-sky businessman whose mouth's writing checks his butt can't cash.

  • Snoop Lion

    Snoop Lion

    Following a religious awakening of sorts in Jamaica, the rapper Snoop Dogg has changed his name to Snoop Lion. What?! Come on. What is it with you rappers and the willingness to change your name every time the wiz-ind changes diz-rections. You are Snoop Dogg. Period. You'll never be anything more to me, nor anything less. My Snoop Dogg doesn't go down the path of Puff Daddy/P. Diddy/Puffy or MC Hammer/Hammer/That Broke Dude with the Baggy Pants. Snoop Dogg knows what he is, and he ain't a lion. He's Snoop Doggie Daw-aw-awgg. And I don't want to hear anymore about it. I guess I should just be glad Snoop didn't spend a life-changing weekend at a PetSmart. Otherwise, we might soon witness the Snoop Hamster Tour.
