The awesomeness of Kelsey Mitchell

So, just how awesome is Kelsey Mitchell?

As the Buckeyes season wrapped up with a round of 32 loss to North Carolina, Kelsey set the following records...
  • With three three-point field goals, including a tying basket with 39 seconds remaining, Kelsey Mitchell set the all-time NCAA single-season record for three-point field goals made with 127. Lisa McMullen of Arkansas State (1990-91) and Sade Logan of Robert Morris (2007-08) previously held the record with 126.
  • Mitchell made at least one three pointer in all 35 games this season, an NCAA record for consecutive games in a season with a three-point field goal.  
  • Mitchell scored 873 points this season, which leads the country. That is also the second-most points ever scored by an NCAA Division I freshman in a season. She finished 25 points behind Tina Hutchinson of San Diego State, who scored 898 points during the 1983-84 season.
  • Mitchell's 873 points scored is a Big Ten single-season record, previously set by Kelly Mazzante of Penn State (872) in 2001-02.

Right to Work is wrong.

"Right to Work"

It's like the Patriot Act. You can't be against the Patriot Act.

Just like you can't be against something called Right to Work. Who doesn't want the Right to Work.

I, for one, don't want the Right to Work.

I want the Right to Organize.

I want the Right to Collectively Bargain.

I want the Right to Earn a Fair Wage.

I want the Right to Bargain my Working Conditions.

I don't want the Right to Work-for-Less.

Right to Work is wrong.

That wraps up the 1970s.

And now we shall never speak of the music of the 1970s again. In a week and a few days, I'll start a tag for the 1960s.

I'm sure something important happened in 1971.

But this really isn't about the historical events of 1971. This is about the music, the feeling, the flow.

The Olympics were in Munich in 1972.

There was happiness, and there was sadness at the 1972 summer Olympics. The music of 1972 was more universally happy.
