After an unplanned stressed out recession-induced blogging hiatus, I’m back. More or less. Certainly a lot has been going on, and most of it I haven’t been able to keep with lately.
However, there certainly has been a few news items I’ve been unable to run away from. It seems a certain golfer, while backing out of his driveway backed his vehicle into some obstacle on his property. Aside from this golfer and his family, who cares?. Mrs. LiquidThinker just a wreck herself not too long ago where somebody backed into her vehicle. It is a standard everyday thing that happens to almost everybody. Insurance eventually took care of it and the media was not alerted. But we are ceaselessly bombarded with endless news about Tiger backing into a mailbox or whatever. The news media is just pissing me off and I keep having to turn it off. Is there really nothing else of import happening on this planet? Really? No link to that story is provided here, as you are probably as sick of it as I am.
But, yes, there is other news. The other news item concerns one Sarah “Quitter” Palin. She is taking full advantage of the opportunity to cash out selling her very quickly ghost-written
hack book. When golfers crashing into mailboxes is not being lambasted from every news source, we get painfully pummeled with Palin. Why anyone any longer gives a flip about this empty-headed, narcissistic, walking right-wing sound-bite is beyond me.
Oh yeah, and apparently we’re sending 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan.
