Venturing afield

And on the final week of the first month in office, the Lord said, “Give it a rest.” And so we will. Well, not really. But at least you won’t be reading much about you-know-who in this week’s installment. Let’s see what other topics are banging on the door:

The dim reaper

What a prize for a press corps we have in this country. I was pecking away at the keyboard last Friday afternoon when my brother called and told me about this Santelli guy going off on CNBC. Come to find out later that correspondent Rick Santelli's rant against the Obama Administration's mortgage relief plan was an instant media sensation, drawing only slightly less page views on the Internet than the Bible has received throughout recorded history. Jeremiah had nothing on this Santelli guy. Reap the whirlwind and all that booyah!
