I was informed the other day that it has been since November of last year that I have written a blog post. My how time flies! I also believe this was after I promised everyone in my life I was going to be more diligent about letting my fans know what was going on in my life and career. To say that nothing has been going on would be a lie, but to remember all that has gone on would be a stretch. Therefore, I will deal with more recent history. My Cubs and White Sox both were in the playoffs this year. Possibly setting up what some would consider one of the signs of the Apocalypse. (A White Sox-Cub World Series.) It would have at least settled one of the fifty year arguments I have been having with my friend Corbin. Who’s better the Cubs or Sox? The other argument is over a whiffle ball game, but I don’t have the time to go into the details of that. Suffice it to say I am correct in stating that the ball was a home run, but I digress.
Not only did the Cubs and Sox lose, but it was so quick, that the beef I ordered from Portillo’s got here two days after they were ousted. The good thing is that it looks as though the Apocalypse will be delayed indefinitely. Well, at least there is the Titans.
I can’t get it out of my head that something big is going on this November and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Something political I think. Anyway, if it comes to me I will wax philosophically on it. I hope it’s not a Presidential election. I have been forbidden to talk about those things.
I can say this: 2008 will go down in history as the year that objective journalism finally died. Everyone I listen to for information has apparently picked a team and all objectivity has gone out the window. If I was allowed to talk about things political, I would say something about how I am getting the impression that these people in D.C. don’t give a whit about us, the people. I know that I am praying for all our leaders, praying that something that resembles humility would fall upon them from the heavens.
I have to say after the bailout, one would think that the people who were responsible for this would have at least feigned hanging their collect heads in shame. Instead, we were witnesses to a celebration in front of the congressional building as if they won the World Series. I am only guessing but ripping off the taxpayers to the tune of a trillion dollars should not be a cause for celebration; it should be at least a time for some humility and at least one apology from someone in the government. Nothing, Nada, zip, zilch from anyone in charge. So I have decided to take responsibility for the collapse of our economy. Someone has too, so why not me?
I am soooooooo sorry. Please forgive me.
There I feel better. You know, that wasn’t really that difficult. I wonder why it is so hard for our “public servants?”
