Have you ever had one of those days when your mind is a total blank? That describes my cerebrum and cerebellum today and it's really, really irritating. In the middle of the night I think of all of those wonderful subjects that I want to explore on this blog, but in the morning I can't remember a single one.
When this happens I always promise myself that I will put a pad and pencil on my nightstand so I can write a reminder for further perusal. Naturally, I promptly forget the reminder to make a reminder. Oh, the agony of it all.
I did so want to explore a deep and interesting subject on today's blog. Maybe something like 'why do men part their hair on one side and is it significant as to which side he uses?' Now there's a subject you can really get your teeth into.
I am heartily sick of the doom and gloom that invades our equilibrium when we turn on the news. If that is true, why do I listen?
Do I really think all those petitions I so faithfully sign are read by my representative in Foggy Bottom?
Do the Republicans give a rats ass about the country?
Will the partisanship that started with Ronald Reagan ever disappear from Washington?
Will Obama finally tell the obstructionist Republicans to put a sock in it?
Will the public ever stop listening to a big fat blowhard named Rush Limbaugh?
Will Fox news become honest?
Will the stimulus package pass before it is so diluted it will do no good?
Will John Q. Public ever stop letting someone like Hannity tell them what to think?
Will it ever stop snowing in the Northeast?
Will the sun come up tomorrow?
Well, you get the idea. My mind is pure mush today.
