I'm gonna hit you so hard that when you wake up your clothes will be out of style!
I had the day off and it was lovely. Paid some bills, surfed a bunch, was amazed by Bog's use of the phrase "Jesus Christ!" while gardening read the whole paper, and played with my dog. Lovely. Too bad that's all coming to a close as I need to prep cameras and deal with work and a visiting friend. I'll be helping to sell Milkbone products all day on Friday and on Tuesday and Wednesday I'll be helping to move Farmer John puerco products. Things seem to be looking up in America these days, yes sir! Fine dog food products (that I'd never use) and even finer pork products (that I'd never use) for sale and no one seems to be too down. Yeah, right. I watched the President address the arrest and shabby treatment of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and all I could think was, how in the hell did an illiterate rich hick "run" the country for eight years? Are the American people that stupid? The President gave a well reasoned, long, and articulate response and then Wolf Blitzer tried to rip on him after the address for giving a long answer. I guess in the age of Twitter an intelligent answer is too much for people to process.
I'm off. I'm off like a prom dress and I'm going to read Karen Armstrong's The Great Transformation. It's quite good, you know.
