| Who thought Tiger Woods would have an accident in a Cadillac? Aren't Buicks good enough for him?
The couple who crashed the state dinner last week have had their fifteen minutes of fame. You can go away now.
If you'd like to attend this Friday's event in Allentown with President Obama simply explain to the Secret Service that you're there to dine with him. They'll let you right in, probably with that AR-15 you're carrying.
Barack Obama will go to Copenhagen for the world climate talks. I predict nothing but more hot air as a result. No one is going to do anything significant until more coastal cities are lost.
Speaking of which why do we continue spending millions replacing sand on barrier islands? We'll never stop the relentless encroachment by the sea because we refuse to stop driving our SUV's and going green. Stop bailing out the rich (again) and let them build elsewhere.
Here's a simple idea to screw the bankers who have been screwing us: use cash. Start carrying actual money and use that for your purchases. This will deny greedy bankers of tons of our money. There's nothing as satisfying as fighting back!
Tomorrow is the first day of hunting season in PA. Deer hunters will flood the woods and some will do nothing more than shoot another hunter. I'll refrain from kayaking for a couple weeks because too many of these lamebrains think drinking alcohol will keep them warm then they shoot anything that moves.
A friend and regular blog reader left us last week. Kim Kline, tireless campaign volunteer and someone who deeply cared about this country decided to end his life Wednesday. We'll all miss you buddy. I picked up the newspaper Friday, saw his obituary and have been somewhat out of sorts since. Kim lived near me for years and we ran into each other regularly. He often called about blog articles or to alert me to interesting news.
We had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving. Breakfast was at the new house and dinner at a niece's home. I didn't watch a single football game all day and didn't miss it. Of course I bought the paper Friday primarily to see who won. As soon as the leftovers are gone maybe I'll begin thinking about Christmas. I can't believe another year has come and gone and I'm getting too close to being 60 years old. How did that happen?
I'm dog sitting again for my friends Jim and Cynthia while they're in New Mexico. I'm jealous and every bad driver cutting me off and every rude clerk who refuses to thank me for my business make me yearn to be in Santa Fe. The scenery ain't bad either.
If you haven't signed up for the Pennsylvania Progressive Summit what are you waiting for? Sponsored by Keystone Progress and other progressive organizations it is coming in January. Click on the ad on our left sidebar for more information.
The next Democratic State Committee meeting will be in early February, the week after the Summit. Candidates for Governor, Lt. Governor and Senator will be vying for the official Party endorsements and there will be much to cover politically. Read all about it right here.
President Obama announces his plan for Afghanistan Tuesday. The escalation of the war makes this HIS war now. I hear echoes of Vietnam regularly. We either learn from history or we're doomed to repeat it. I hate to watch us repeat the mistakes of Vietnam. The generals always think more troops are the answer.
