Midnight Rambler

Hello all you blog followers, all three of you, I believe. Not much of anything seems to be happening tonight, so I thought I would just ramble for a minute or two. The natives are sedate, and aside from the monkey meat smuggler there are no international bizarre incidents. Domestically there is the matter of the Governor of Illinois deciding to sell Obama's Senate seat to the highest bidder, rumored to be in the $500,000 to a million range. But given the sordid state of politics in the U.S., that is not really very bizarre; it's more like business as usual. You would think there would be much more bizarre shit going on in the rest of the world, where there are at least 6 billion other people, compared to only slightly more than 300 million in the homeland. But I guess we make up for our small numbers by consuming about half of the world's resources. You would think that with 6 billion people it would occur to a couple of billion of them to gang up on us and come over here and take all our shit, which they mainly paid for anyway, and inform us that if we didn't stop being so greedy, and electing idiots like George W. Bush to go around playing world bully, that we just might find ourselves involuntarily living on another planet. A very, very cold one that would take us maybe a million years or so to heat up with global warming.

But enough of heart warming small talk. It's time to go eat some supper and plan for a brighter day tomorrow, although today was rather bright, weatherwise, at least until this afternoon when it turned bitterly cold and was beginning to sleet, which is bad news if it does, because that certainly won't be a brighter tomorrow.

So it goes.
