Several Small Things

1.  I am still annoyed with the media.  They went on and on about Ariel when he first had his stroke, but haven't updated the story in more than a week.  If he had been a high school girl lost on an island most of the media would be covering it like the world was coming to an end for weeks on end.
 
2.  I am very sorry for the loss of lives in the two recent mine tragedies in WV.  Having said that, I think I would be terrified to be a miner.  (After all I am afraid of cows and they aren't really all THAT dangerous, or so my wife keeps telling me.  But damn it those cows are much bigger than I am.)  The miner who survived the first situation continues to amaze people.
 
3.  My wife and I were in the car together the other day. (This seems to be a very rare occurance at the moment.) And she made an observation that I have and it is something that really doesn't make sense to me.  Why do smokers crack open a window in the car when they are driving.  If they really like smoking so much, and are really like the smell of the smoke, why not just keep the window closed.

Comments:
The local stations are reporting today that Randal McCloy is out of his coma! YAY! Still a lot of issues though and I am not altogether sure he'll ever be the "same" again.

And re: Sharon. I completely agree with you. If it was Dimwit, er, I mean W...they'd never let it go. We'd be getting updates by the second.
 
Ok here's what get me!!!

Media floks who when at a press confrence contiually ask the same question over and over again. I feel like screaming at the TV like on Law and Order, "Asked and answered now move on!!"

If we are supposed to be the greatest nation on earth why are we so far behind on mine safety. In Australia they have O2 chambers where miners can go if they are trapped and have enough O2 for 3 days not 3 hours.

Why is it that gas prices go up 10 cents a pop but only come down 2 cents a pop.

And finally does G. W. Bushwack really think he is fooling anyone that he has a brain in his head.
 
Anth:

I have to agree. The stupidity of some of the way things are done in this country is just back-assward.
