In Honolulu this weekend (Very bored flat voice): Oh boy.
Old is new: I spotted a banner on a bar announcing, “Guest Bartender”, like it was something new. Hey, Dickie Boyd and Mickey Hummer were doing that back in the 70’s and 80’s. Their “guests” were people like Russ Francis (TE New England Patriots), Tommy Sands (entertainer), Fabian (teen idol), Jimmy Borges (jazz singer) and Neil Abercrombie (Hawaii Congressman and later HI Governor). Working behind the bar with Russ was painful. When he bumped into you, he didn’t even know it, but you did. Tommy and Fabian were just wonderful guys. Of course, Jimmy was always a class act.
Priorities: I was planning to retire this year. At 75, I figured to spend some time with my wife and house, maybe write a little more. However, gas is $5 + a gallon so I won’t drive very much, wife’s meds have tripled in out-of-pocket costs, my diet will be mostly canned tuna and boxed mac and cheese, the electric bill has gone up so much we can only watch a total 3 hours of tv a day, and cook only one meal each day, but at least I know if my 70 y-o wife ever needs an abortion she will be able to get one.
WTF is wrong with people: Brittny Griffin (30) had her three children in the car when she shot a 17-year-old victim in the face on I-20. According to reports, Griffin was stalking the teenage driver for 15 miles after she accidentally cut her off. Griffin went to get her nails done after shooting the child in the face, according to the judge. The 17-year-old was a passenger in the car and was rushed to the hospital and is in stable condition. Griffith was charged with four counts of aggravated assault, three counts of cruelty to children, and one count of possession of a firearm during commission of a felony. She chased them for 15 miles? Because they cut her off? And she shot into a car full of kids? And she has kids? In answer to my lead, she places no value on anyone but herself.
Not your granddad’s tv show: Watched the “Rookie” this week and it was 2 part episode that was supposed to introduce the “new” rookie. The new rookie is an “fbi trainee”, that is a mid-aged black female bisexual with a father that hates po-lice and “feds”. She was temporarily teamed up with a Hispanic supervisor and an out-spoken white gay female agent. Efrem Zimbalist Jr. is spinning in his grave like a top.
Huh?: A judge has ruled that an Arizona prisoner convicted in the 1978 killing of a university student is “mentally fit” to be put to death next week, keeping on track what would be the first execution in the state in nearly eight years. So, you have to be mentally fit to be executed? Sorry, if you murder someone, you’re not exactly all there to begin with in my opinion. Okay, you kill someone, then go nuts while in prison, so now they don’t execute you? The execute must understand that they are being executed. Doesn’t that seem just a little “cruel and unusual”? This all doesn’t make much sense to me.
And what is with all these people “bragging” about their abortions? So, you’re too horny/stupid to engage in safe sex, get pregnant, and decide to “terminate” the pregnancy. Sorry, but to me, this is not something to brag about. Or ever mention. Or put in a headline. Ever.
