Cheers and Jeers for Tuesday, April 24

Jeers to Peace, and no not the type all the beauty contestants wish for during pageants. We jeer Metta World Peace, formerly Ron Artest, for elbowing an opponent during a NBA game Sunday. This guy simply does not get it and trouble always seems to find him.
Jeers to Newt Gingrich. It is time to stop spending money on a campaign which has all but lost to Mitt Romney. We salute Gingrich for his campaign which put up the good fight yet now it is time to let Romney take his place as the Republican candidate to go up against President Barack Obama.
Cheers to the great weather over the weekend which continued through Monday. We needed it after last week’s rain storms which became heavy on Monday and Friday.
