How to use bland in a sentence?

  1. Whitney High:

    Use bland soaps, not highly perfumed or scented soaps.

  2. Bernie Sanders:

    This video of the arrest of Sandra Bland shows totally outrageous police behavior, no one should be yanked from her car, thrown to the ground, assaulted and arrested for a minor traffic stop. The result is that three days later she is dead in her jail cell.

  3. Darrell Jordan:

    After reviewing all the evidence in the death of Sandra Bland, a Waller grand jury did not return an indictment in the death of Bland, nor were any indictments returned against any employee of the Waller County Jail, the grand jury has looked at all the evidence and found no evidence of murder.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Without the challenges, life can be totally - like a bland diet with no spices. Challenges are the Spices of Life

  5. Phil Lesh -LRB- bass -RRB-:

    The mainstream seems to be referencing '60s, '70s and '80s rock, rather than '30s, '40s, '50s blues and jazz and that sort of thing, our generation, the '60s 'jammers' let's say, our influences were people like Coltrane, and blues artists like Bobbie Bland, or Wilson Pickett or more of a roots-y thing. I think that young musicians today are more influenced by rock music. It's sort of narrowed down a little bit. That's not to say that it's not extremely expressive and diverse, but I don't sense a lot of roots involvement.
