The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

Just a short note: I’ve had to check the perpetual calendar to find out on what day 6 June 1944 occurred (it was a Tuesday) and how long it took from that day to the German surrender (337 days) for one of our patrons, and so I figured, while I was at it, let’s figure out how long it will be to the next Presidential inauguration (699 days). Well, that is something to think about, especially given that the Oval Office wannabes have pushed this election cycle’s kickstand up and out of the way and are now riding the bike full throttle towards Iowa and New Hampshire, running down anything that gets in their way. In any case, I think I speak for large numbers of people when I say that by the time this happens we will all be so absolutely sick of this Presidential election cycle that we won’t care who the next President is, we’ll vote for anyone who promises to stay the hell off of our televisions and out of our sight for a prolonged period of time. I suspect this may work in the Republicans’ favor, as no one would believe a Democrat if they told us that they would bow to the public’s wishes and do nothing that got their faces plastered all over the evening news every night. By then, hopefully, Britney will have gotten her face tattooed or joined a satanic cult or become the father of Anna Nicole's next child, which might drown out the noise from Washington for a while and give the rest of us a break from the non-stop politicking. We can only hope.
