WMC-TV in Memphis reports that Dyer County High School senior Kendra Turner was suspended for saying “Bless you” after a classmate sneezed. It's one of a number of phrases that “class rules” prohibit. We suggest she break out singing “God Bless America” as an ornery alternative. ... National Review reports that country/pop singer Taylor Swift is being taken to task for her new music video, “Shake it Off.” Some say her use of primarily black dancers to perform hip-hop moves is racial stereotyping. Still others say her own hip-hop moves are no less than racist because she's a white person performing black moves. Damned if you're hip, damned if you hip-hop. ... Perennially troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, all of 28 years old, says she will write a three-part memoir. Good grief. We can think of no better example of the narcissism of the age. ... While actor/activist Leonardo DiCaprio is busy imploring the world to impose stiff taxes on carbon emissions to reduce global temperatures — “We must put a price on carbon — now,” he wails, Viv Forbes, writing in the American Thinker, reminds that “climate-cooling policies that claim to prevent global warming by throttling the use of carbon fuels will definitely reduce food supply and increase food prices.” Of course, it's a concept that “progressives” can't fathom.
