‘Gotham Notes’ Archives

Grandpa Joe

Grandpa Joe

So the other day I was watching Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (the 1971 Gene Wilder film – not that creepy Johnny Depp LSD trip of a movie). I’ve seen this movie multiple times, but I always notice something different each time so I continue to watch it [Read More]

Ruining College Football

Ruining College Football

Every year we hear more and more people talking about the, ‘need for a playoff system in college football.’ I, like most others, simply dismissed the notion saying, “It’ll never happen.” But, each year, the pro-playoff windbags get louder and louder and have [Read More]

Old Problems Plague New Year

Old Problems Plague New Year

Where to begin? As a professor of mine used to say, why is begging so difficult? You just begin by writing or saying what is on your mind for that moment! Professor Von Kroytch was right. So, I shall begin this first official BobGrantOnline commentary by writing what is on [Read More]

New Year’s Resolutions

2010 in Review

2010 in Review

It’s the end of the year. Everyone does it. Rolling Stone. Billboard. Why shouldn’t I, right? I’m not sure how solid that logic is, but I’m rolling with it anyway. This year was a great one on every level. Movies, music, television, politics. The [Read More]

‘Tis the Season

Have We Lost 2012 Already?

Have We Lost 2012 Already?

I remember a remarkable political science teacher I had at the University of Illinois. He loved American history and he loved America. This was before the 1960s so not all college faculties were swollen with radical, left-wing Berkley-type political morons. But, this [Read More]

WikiLeaks Is Sabotaging Us

WikiLeaks Is Sabotaging Us

WikiLeaks, WikiLeaks, WikiLeaks . . . I am getting tired of seeing this dumb name for a website. But, it is not just a website. It is a dangerous weapon in the hands of a delusional, America-hating saboteur. The name of the WikiLeaks founder is Julian Assange. He is an [Read More]

It’s officially Christmas when…

It’s officially Christmas when…

Is it just me, or does it seem like people are starting to begin the Christmas celebrations earlier and earlier? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not Scrooge or anything, I absolutely love Christmas time. I just don’t understand why the “Christmas Season” needs to begin [Read More]

It Was December 8th, 2004…

It was December 8th, 2004. The phone rang at 1:30AM… “Turn on CNN.” I did as was instructed, and saw the clip. It was grainy “home video” of a stage. A stage, that could be in Anywhere, USA. This stage was in Columbus, Ohio. And just minutes before, my friend [Read More]
