Too Much of Everything

April 18, 2011

Peter: Let me ask you something. When you come in on Mondays, and you’re not feeling too well, does anybody ever come up to you and say “sounds like
someone’s got a case of the Mondays”?
Lawrence: No. No, man, shit, no, man. I believe you’d get your ass kicked for
sayin’ something like that, man.

Surfing the Internet news this early morning finds all kinds of shit popping up all over the globe, and most of it horrible — from this weekend’s tornado surge in the US southeast (45 killed, more than 200 twisters in three days) to five US GIs killed in Afghanistan on Saturday to another US air traffic controller caught napping on the job, this time in Miami (that make seven so far caught on the doze) to Brent oil futures near $123 a barrel (West Texas Intermediate nearing $110 a barrel) and crazed Nicolas Cage arrested Saturday on a New Orleans street for public drunkeness while yelling at his old lady — Cage is said to have taunted cops into taking him into custody, repeatedly refusing their request to quietly go home and asking, “Why don’t you just arrest me?” The officers ultimately obliged, charging Cage with disturbing the peace and domestic violence.

Other than that life is just a peach.
And the pit of a peach, Sara Palin, and her blubbering on Saturday while in Wisconsin: “I’m here as a patriot, as a taxpayer, and as a former union member.”
Another weekend heap of bullshit:

Beltrami (Vince Beltrami, president of Alaska AFL-CIO,) was irked by the “utter hypocrisy” of Sarah urging (via Facebook) her “union brothers and sisters” to oppose the protests against Wisconsin Gov. Walker’s signing into law a bill that stripped public employees of union rights.
He wrote, “She belonged to my union, the IBEW, for about a minute, over twenty years ago, one summer, in a temporary position.”

Hello Monday, here we go again!
