THE PONCHATOULA TIMES, SEPTEMBER 9, 2010, PAGE 2 Dave Berwick Roger, Roger By DAVE BERWICK Times Columnist "Roger, Roger that good bud- dy" says the truck driver. "Rog- er that," says the airplane pilot Roger Rabbit of olden days. But that's not the Roger we're after. One of the Rogers we want is Roger Rabbit, an animated or known in the old day as a car- toon character who, if you have not seen, is drawn like a rabbit. Roger Rabbit is the lead charter in the movie "who framed Roger Rabbit?" which is one of the fun- niest movies I have ever seen. I watched it hundred of times, I have the script memorized. Now, the thing about Roger Rabbit is that he can only do one The Final Chapter,.. By JOHN DUDEK Times Columnist The beginning of the college football season is finally here, and it may be the last season that Les Miles coaches Louisiana State University's Fighting Tigers. Even though the Tigers beat North Carolina team 30-24, it should have never come down to the last play of the game. The Bayou Bengals were ahead and cruising with the score 30-10 heading into halftime. Ball security issues and sus- pect play calling almost doomed LSU. Les Miles once again proved he can't seem to manage the clock, whether his team is ahead by three touchdowns, or down by just three points. North Carolina was with- out seven of 11 defensive start- ers, yet the Tigers still couldn't manage to put away an under- manned team that at one point had more fumbles than first downs. I hate to see what the game's outcome would have been if John Dudek the Tar Heels had their full compliment of players. It's go- ing to be a long season in PLEASE SEE PAGE 8 The Ponchatoula,Times Published by The Ponchatoula Times L.L.C.

In the middle of the movie Roger is vilified by a crooked politician known as "Judge Doom. Now I'm not saying all politicians are money hungry, thieving, self serving, lying scoundrels but Judge Doom certainly was. At the end of the movie Roger Rabbit emerges vic- torious over the forces of evil. The second Roger we want is Roger Clemens, a famous base- ball player. Like Roger'Rabbit he, Roger Clements, can only do one thing, that's throw a base- ball, entertain people. In return the people paid Clemens a great Happy Anniversary September 9 - Clayton & Ruth Bergeron, Denis Jr. & De- lores Breaud, Kenneth & Bev- erly Schatzle, Tom & Paulette Reeder September 11 Reggie & Oresta Pevey, John & Cheryl Laiche September 12 - Francis & Barbara Martino, Fred & Tippi Gonzales, Cecil & Shawn Ga- raudy September 13 - Sam & Mary Ryan, Danny & Lisa Amerson, Ralph & Cindy Chandler, Dick & Dixie Tucker September 14 - Sam & Mary Ragan, Dorothy & Curtis Per- rin, Donald & Sherry Mince September 15 - Allan & Terri Taylor, George & Kim Navarre Happy Birthday September 9 - Iver- stine, Donna Hill, Eileen Ga- briel, Elaine Tanner, Joan Iver- stine, Jonathan Rucker, Joshua LeBlanc, Melanie Thibodaux, Patsy Atkins, Shirley Johnson, Terri Waits, Terry Fornea, Mar- ty Watts, Terry Fornea, Troy Coker September 10 - Elzy Lindsey, Emily Jones, Joe Ciolino, Karen McMillion, Katherine Kittock, Kendall Jackson, Kenneth Tur- nage, Megan Gibson; Paul J.

Ragan, Victoria Gonzales, Roger Clemens deal of money. Roger and Roger are likeable characters, both are good fam- ily men but both can only do one thing which :I have all ready mentioned. When either tries to do something else disaster fol- lows. Now both Rogers run afoul of the law. I understand that one is a cartoon character that exists only in a movie and the other is a real live human being whose life has come unglued. Roger Clemens is facing slammer time for lying to a bunch of politicians. Wait. Let's think about this a minute. A hard working man who has paid huge amounts of taxes is going Clemens before Congress 7-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Roger Clemens (left), listens to the testimony of his former personal train- er Brian McNamee (right) during a congressional hearing. to jail because he lied to a bunch of politicians. What happens when the politicians lie to the people? Shouldn't the politicians be 'the ones going to jail for lying to the public? This is backwards!
