07:07 AM ET 05.27 | Pau Gasol, once a mainstay in Memphis, where his brother is now the mainstay while his own future is unsettled in Los Angeles, can merely wait. [The continued] uncertainty surrounding free-agent-to-be Dwight Howard isn't helping matters. While Pau is aware that he may be traded, the problematic part for all involved is that Howard is taking his time with the decision. Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said at end-of-season interviews that he was hoping Howard would make up his mind sooner rather than later. ... "Dwight is looking at his options, and there's nothing wrong with that, I guess," Pau said. "I'm not him. I'm not in his position, but I guess it all starts with his decision and I'm sure the franchise is waiting to see whether he decides to sign (with the Lakers)."

Rather than "waiting" on Howard, he needs to look at himself. He just had surgeries to both knees and he needs to worry about rehabbing and getting back in shape. I hate it when players making $20M per whining and crying about "uncertainty". He gets GUARANTEED money so just shut it already!

Thank you to the men and women who served and currently served our country. Thank you for your sacrifices. Thank you for fighting for our freedom. You are what makes our country so great. God bless our troops...


"How to Honor the Fallen"
(by GLC)

As Americans, we honor our Fallen in various ways. Most of these are short term and help us cope with the grief and anguish we may feel.
But how do we honor the Fallen for the long run?
The best way is to ensure their sacrifices were not in vain.
There is a clich??, now almost a trite and pass?? one, that says ???freedom is not free.???
Well, it isn???t.

Our freedoms must be DEFENDED AND EXERCISED daily. Note the ???AND??? between the words ???exercised??? and ???defended.???
The defense of our Constitution and thus the freedoms we get from it is entrusted to our Armed Forces and the law enforcement community. They do this daily.
The exercise of those freedoms is entrusted to the rest of us:
Every time we exercise our right to vote, we honor the Fallen.
Every time we exercise our right to free speech, we honor the Fallen.
Every time we exercise our right to free press, we honor the Fallen.
Every time we exercise our right to freely assemble, we honor the Fallen.
Every time we exercise our right to bear arms, we honor the Fallen.

But beyond those rights, there are many other long term ways to honor the Fallen:
Every time we exercise our right to correct or speak up against a wrong, we honor the Fallen.
Every time we exercise our right to take care of our loved ones, we honor the Fallen.
Every time we exercise our right to take care of those in need, we honor the Fallen.

So think about what it is you are doing the next time you feel about NOT voting, speaking out against a wrong, or not taking care of each other.
The Fallen sacrificed their lives so we may continue to enjoy our Constitutional rights. They expect us to do our part by exercising and enjoying those rights.
