It's been a long time since I posted a new story in this blog. I apologize for letting you down. It's been hard to write about anything in the past few months, because I've had a lot to think about. Like most of you, my pain has changed over the past few months, it's not that I didn't know it might happen, it's just hard to get used to something new. I know many of you have much worse things to endure.
That being said, I've decided to write something short to get back in the "groove" so to speak and it is not about pain, it's about helping you get over the pain or at least to make you laugh so you can stop thinking about it all of the time.
So here goes...
Last night I was reading one of my favorite web sites “Overheard in NYC”. It has witty and not-so-witty things that people say. They have several categories and the statement below is under their celebrity tab. It’s from one of our most quoted VP’s. No not Agnew, it’s Dan Quayle, here’s his take on global warming and pollution.
Dan Quayle: It isn't pollution that is hurting the environment, it's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.
That statement really brought an issue to the forefront for me. We’re bombarded daily with the bad news on the war and the economy and crime, but what about the real suffering that’s going on in one of our biggest industries? What about the poor comedians?
Since we elected President Obama and Vice President Biden, where are the laughs? No more nightly George Bush-isms, no accidental VP shootings, it’s not just the white and blue collar workers who are suffering, just think of the poor comedians. What are they going to do with an intelligent president?
The economy is looking a little better, President Obama was instrumental in putting an end to a kidnapping at sea, he’s making friends all over the world. It’s like he’s doing his job with grace and intelligence and that hasn’t happened in a long time.
Sure Bill and Hillary were ok, but let’s face it not everyone was enamored of them as the first couple. And the Bush’s? Not only was Little George a laugh a minute, remember when Big George visited No. 10 Downing street for the first time? He emerged from his limo and without missing a beat, he shook the doorman’s hand. It was a hoot. Or how about the time he threw up on the Japanese Prime Minister?
Yes, say what you will about the Obama’s, but seriously it’s the entertainers who are going to need the next bail
Thanks for listening,
