While the cat was away . . .

As regular readers of this blog know, posts have been fewer and farther between over the past week.  I was away and though I did have web access, very little seemed important enough to take the time to write about.

But that doesn't mean nothing was happening . . . the Republican governor of South Carolina committed political suicide by libido.  Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon, passed on.  Missouri governor Jay Nixon agreed to national educational standards.  And, once again, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed another major piece of legislation (which would "solve" a nonexistent problem by crippling our already hobbled economy) without reading it.

Much as I would love to take the time to exhaust all of these issues in this space, I must admit to feeling a bit of the blahs about all of this news . . .  blah, blah, blah . . . the country is controlled by liberals and so is the state.  Conservatives keep shooting themselves in the feet.  And the public seems more interested in spectacle and celebrity than in issues.  

So I won't look back.  On to bigger and newer news.  Billy Mays is gone.  It's not been a good week for A, B, or C-list celebrities.  May they all rest in peace.

I look forward to getting back in the saddle this week.
