Math

If, like us, you've come to despise Mike Kelly's worthless column in the local paper, then you probably really hated Saturday's installment, which highlighted one of his more inane fetishes—what he calls "cool numbers."

Apparently, he found some guy who "was born on 10/10/55 and turned 55 on 10/10/10." Isn't it amazing?!

Let's add Kelly to the list of tired local hacks who need to go away— a list that already includes John Knicely, Jim Flowers, Dave Webber, Anne Boyle, and both Lee Terrys.

You're right, they sound like they're either writing/speaking for the geritol set or cornball Nation.. Maybe it's the ghost of harold anderson.

I gave up reading Mike Kelly's column a LONG time ago. I tired of his banal attempts at making everything in the world somehow revolve around Omaha or Nebraska. A major earthquake happens overseas and somehow, it's tied into Omaha. Some A-list star has a fifteenth cousin that lives in Lincoln. Yep...that's good enough for Mike Kelly's column. That star has Nebraska roots. C'mon...

He's like the geeky kid making every annoying attempt to get noticed.

Agree with you on all the rest...especially the Terrys'. Of course...if he wins the election...guess what...we won't see him again until 2012. He has a habit of keeping a low profile unless it's an election year. Guess not doing anything wins him votes...

So the winds are gusting to 40+ miles per hour. So lets go live to Justin Joseph outside the Qwest Center where you have to listen to his annoying commentary through the wind whooshing over the microphone.

So after the wind report from Justin, the next story is a lady getting a collection notice for returning a game late to Hollywood Video. Why is it when they report on a business that is no longer there, they always have a shot of someone trying to pull open the locked door of the abandoned business? How pointless.

At the end Knicely says, "we tried every contact listed for Hollywood Video, but every number is disconnected".

John! WHAT! You mean they don't have someone inside the empty buildings answering the phone? WOW!! What a crime! Must be because of those darn locked doors that Malorie discovered!

I new Mike when he was a local news/sports reporter. He was pretty aggressive at one time but now has become comfortable and lazy in his job. Too bad he can't exit and let someone else have a crack at it.
