I'm bored


There is just nothing in the news today. Zippo. Nada. I have surfed the entire internet and believe me there is nothing interesting out there today. If you haven't tried to find something to read yet, don't bother.

Oh sure, there is the ongoing whispers about Traitorgate and whether Karl Rove, "Scooter" Libby and perhaps even Darth Cheney will get indicted. I guess that's interesting but I'll wait for the news at this point. Even if indictments happen it won't be a happy day since it will be a sad day for democracy. Government should be about what it can do for people not what it can do to people. There are just no standards anymore. Whoever is in power - anything goes. Very sad.

Syria's interior minister, Ghazi Kanaan, committed suicide. Allegedly. He was in charge of military intelligence in neighboring Lebanon and was likely behind the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, a staunch opponent of Syria's occupation of Lebanon. Too bad Kanaan didn't live here then he'd probably get a book deal with Regency Publishing, a grant from Richard Mellon Scaife and a job as senior intelligence analyst with Faux News. I say the earth is that much lighter today.

Nothing to read in the New York Time today except Thomas Friedman. Even Maureen Dowd was unreadable which is a first for her.

Bird flu is going to kill us all until we move on to figure out the marital status of Nick and Jessica. Hillary is running in '08. So is Kerry. Gore is a maybe then no. Who cares. Wake me up when its over.

Mitt Romney, governor of Massachusetts says the terrorists want to take down our government and replace it with a theocracy. Faith-based science, intelligent design, divine inspiration to invade countries? Too late.

No news. Nothing to read. Can't do the Wednesday New York Times crossword or hard Sudoku puzzle and my back hurts from playing golf, after two months off, on a cold day while trying to out drive Tiger Woods. I need a vacation. Any suggestions? And don't recommend "Hell." I'm already there.

Why couldn't the NYT do what Salon does and have you view an ad in order to access the Times select?
Or, how about Republicans want to away your mortage interest and health insurance tax deductions?

BTW, why do they call golf, golf?

A: All the other four letter words were taken.
