The Weekly DownLloyd: The most hated man in America

As the producer of Mac & Gaydos, this is my own unique, weird, wacky and, at times, warped look at the week’s seven biggest stories.

The most hated man in America

No shock, it’s Donald Sterling. Ninety-two percent of people surveyed can’t stand him. Personally, I don’t hate Sterling, I just think his time as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers needs to come to an end. He didn’t wrong me in any way though.

I don’t even know if most players in the NBA hate him. My hunch is they view him as an old guy whose ideals and opinions in no way match up with what’s acceptable today.

Free college, well, sort of

Attorneys here in Arizona have to take legal courses to stay up on changes in the law. ASU’s hooking them up. They’re going to be offering online “pay-what-you-want” legal courses.

If you’re a practicing attorney here in Arizona, I can’t imagine you having trouble coming up with a few hundred bucks to pay for these courses, but if you’re just starting out and trying to gain clients or just find work, I think this is great.

I wish there was a way I could allow the dozens and dozens of you who read and listen to this to pay for it if you wanted to. Pay-what-you-want podcast!

Crashes ain’t cheap

$871 billion. lLet that number sink in for a second. That’s how much it costs YEARLY when you add up the impact of all the car and truck crashes out there.

Jeez, and I thought the Clippers were being sold for a lot of cash. Is there some inflation in that number somewhere?

When you break it all down and consider almost 33,000 people lost their lives when they conducted this study in 2010, it’s easy to see how they reach such a big figure.

Can you really put a price tag on a loss of time. I can’t, but insurance companies can.
