Butthorn of the week: Playboy magazine and all the sports publications that are underrating the University of Miami Hurricanes football team. I single out Playboy because their blasphemy happens to appear in the September issue -- the one with the photos of South Beach babes (you can call 'em babes when they aren't wearing clothes, right?) and Pat Booth's drivelly second-person text. Playboy predicts the 'Canes will finish the season ranked seventh in the nation. I say number one. See ya in the Orange Bowl.
Pet corner: This Saturday is Homeless Animals Day. Millions of unwanted animals are killed by humanity each year. That, my friends, is unacceptable. Candlelight vigils will be held. Call 968-7622.
The media circus: Is this thing on? You can hear me talking about butthorns A I swear that's the actual topic A from 6:00 to 8:00 tonight (Wednesday) on WSBH-AM (1400). It's Stu Goldstein's Point of View talk show, and I hope you hear it.
