There’s a guy at work who is totally good for
nothing. The only thing he is good at is letting the rest of
us take the blame when he screws up. For some reason, the boss
doesn’t see it. We’re getting tired of getting jumped
on for mistakes we didn’t make. What do we do? Confront
the guy (again), or lay it all out to the boss and hope he sees
our side for a change?

Dear Fed Up,
Take some notes. Obviously your co-worker is smarter than you.
Here in America it is generally the “yes” men that
get ahead. Either start kissing more boss butt or do what you
and your co-workers have been planning, lynch the bastard.
– Good luck, Diver
I hate that show “The Osbornes.” Basically
Ozzy is a decrepit hobbling old man and his kids are snobby
punks and a menace to decent society. Yet America loves them.
Remember in the ’80s when Ozzy was hated? If a reality
television show was made about Charles Manson, would America
suddenly begin to love him? Why does reality television make
the worst humans lovable to America?
– Curious, Jane in Hermosa
Dear Curious Jane,
What country club were you watching and listening to Ozzy from?
Metal ruled the ’80s – we loved him them and again
now. All that was great makes a comeback, for example the mullet.
Ozzy is no exception. As for making the Osbornes loveable, take
a look at your family photo. Even the Johnsons look respectable.
– Good luck, Diver
I have noticed that lots of people have been driving
like maniacs lately. I can’t see why someone in Durango
needs to be in such a hurry to get somewhere. What is the need
to get to the next stop light before I do? Won’t we all
get there soon enough? I know I drive a slow VW, but at least
I use my turn signal.
– Thanks, Kubiak
Who do you think you are sitting so “high” on your
VW horse? The majority of us have to keep a schedule in order
to make ends meet in this great community. Just think about
that next time you are racing to the homies to test that new

I read that some film board had people
vote on the greatest movie villain of all time. I think the
winner was Hannibal Lechter from “Silence of the Lambs.”
Personally, I’d say Dean Wormer from “Animal House.”
Who would you pick for best bad guy?
– Your friend, Arnie
Being that “Rocky I” to “V”
were the all-time greatest movies ever, I would have to say
Mr. T. is the most villainest character ever.
– I pity you fool, Diver
