T. GAMBLE: Airlines should ground safety spiel

OPINION: The last thing you need on a plane is a reminder of the things that can go wrong

There should be federal law that if you do not know how to buckle your seat belt, you are placed on the TSA no-fly list. I do not need a smiling flight attendant to demonstrate this useless contraption.

T. GAMBLE: Naked at the creek with a Solo cup

OPINION: There must a be truckloads of red plastic cups heading south these days

Country music eventually gets back to its roots, but it goes by way of four-wheel driving, naked creek splashing and going through an unending supply of a certain plastic cup first.

OPINION: Cash has a way of slipping out of your wallet

T. GAMBLE: Noah's ark park takes water in tax-break fight

OPINION: Kentucky tax officials nix tax breaks over requirement park employees believe ark was real

I’m no Sherlock Holmes, but if you tell me you are opening a Noah’s ark theme park, naming it Ark Encounter, and your company is Answers in Genesis, I imagine I’d at least have an inkling your employees planned to talk about Noah’s ark and it is doubtful they intend to say it is all a farce.

T. GAMBLE: Bruce Jenner giving 'going through The Change' a whole new meaning

OPINION: The age of menopause may not be the best time to switch to a woman

Reports say Bruce Jenner, the 65-year-old former Olympic gold medalist, is undergoing a sex change. Hopefully he won’t follow stepdaughter Kim’s predilection for exposing her derriere.

Spending too much time in front of the TV leaves you short in the accomplishment department.
