Terror Incognito

With brothers like that … Suspended Miami Dolphins football player Richie Incognito continued to defend racist and threatening text messages to a fellow player as “locker room culture,” telling Fox Sports, “it speaks to the culture of our brotherhood.”

Considering the number of NFL players still defending bullying in general and Incognito in particular, you might wonder if we’ve underestimated how many in the league are suffering brain damage from concussions.

Channel-surfing the vast cultural wasteland: The fashion design contestants on Bravo’s “Styled to Rock” are creating a sultry club look for twerking pop star and naked wrecking-ball rider Miley Cyrus.

What have you got in a heavy, shapeless, not-at-all revealing burlap sack?

Let us not pray: They still don’t believe in God, but more atheists are going to church. Nonbelievers are heading to “mega-churches” in large cities where, like believers, they sing, listen to a sermon and pass the collection plate.

To each his own, but we’re betting that at an atheist church potluck you’re going to run into an awful lot of tofu casserole and quinoa loaf.
