Be more mindful.

I love football, and I always will, but DAMN do they have too many assholes.

Today’s Word of the Day is extricate which means, “to free from entanglement or difficulty.” To call on a current news event, the Las Vegas Raiders just extricated themselves from Jon Gruden as their head coach. Word to the wise, people — never put in an e-mail, a text message, a voicemail, or a tweet/Facebook post/Instagram post something you wouldn’t want reprinted on the front page of the New York Times or Washington Post. Or, something you wouldn’t want said to or about your mother. Jon Gruden’s biggest problem isn’t that he’s a racist, misogynistic, homophobic asshole…though that IS a problem…it’s that he was all of those things in print. The Washington Football Team is being investigated, and in the course of that investigation, these e-mails were discovered, then leaked. When are people going to learn that the Internet is forever? If you put it out there, it will stay there, for all time. Of course, no one ever accused racists, homophobes, and misogynists of being the smartest people in the world.
