On this day: February 24, 2022: Russian leader Vladimir Putin announces the start of a “special military operation” in Ukraine to “demilitarize” the country moments before Russia launches a full-scale pre-dawn invasion by land, air and sea, with bombings in several cities amid international condemnation
Also on this day, in 1965, the Beatles began filming “Help.”
This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Parents at a Los Angeles area school district spoke out at a Tuesday school board meeting against the administration’s decision to eliminate honors classes in the name of racial-equity because they didn’t enroll enough Black and Latino students. Earlier this school year, the Culver City Unified School District (CCUSD) replaced honors classes at Culver City High School with a one-size-fits-all approach that officials said would give students of all races an equal education.
Go away: Vladimir Putin
The Celtics and Bruins both won last night. You guessed it, both still the best. The Bruins have the most wins and points through their first 57 of the season in NHL history.
Speaking of Celtics/Bruins, here’s just one difference between NBA players and NHL players. I watched two Celtics games earlier this year where Jaylen Brown was gunning for 40 points and Jason Tatum for 50. Both blowout games and both shooting away at the end. While on Monday afternoon, during David Krejci’s 1,000th career game, David Pastrnak was trying to get Krejci the puck for an empty net goal while he himself had a chance for a hattrick and a tie for the league lead in goals scored.
Walking the dog, you’re doing it wrong. An 85-year-old Florida woman was killed Monday when an alligator attacked her as she was walking her dog.
Did you catch any XFL action?
They said it: “If you came here to have your morals or ethics or to become educated, you should know that, as a cohort, we’re some of the dumbest people on the planet. That’s why we’re comedians, OK? That’s why we’re not lawyers and doctors and we’re not scientists. We are all flawed in some way.” – Vinnie Brand, comedian and owner of Stress Factory Comedy Club
Stop complaining. While Turkey was still in the beginning stages of recovering from the 7.8 magnitude earthquake on Feb. 6, which left more than 45,000 people dead, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake ripped through southern Turkey on Monday.
Good news: Love letters from the World War II-era ( they were more than 80 years old) were found in the walls of a NY house that was being renovated. The letters were eventually returned to the author’s daughter.
Useless information supposed to fire my imagination: Jason Tatum was named NBA All-Star game MVP after scoring 55 points.

Happy National Tortilla Chip Day!
You call it nagging, I call it “Listen to what I f*n said the first time!”
“(Now) And now my life has changed (My life has changed) in oh so many ways
(My independence) My independence seems to vanish in the haze
(But) But ev’ry now (Every now and then) and then I feel so insecure
(I know that I) I know that I just need you like I’ve never done before”
– The Beatles
Bonus song that I should have had last week.
