Into the sunset

In just about all of life’s pursuits you’ll find solid, hardworking, competent people who keep their heads down, theirs lips zipped and their eyes on the ball. They usually do a great job of tending to business — theirs, and sometimes even yours. Then there are folks who go the other way: people who can’t leave well enough alone, who go out of their way to act in gratuitous fashion, who won’t shoot straight because that’s hard to do so while talking out of both sides of the mouth.

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!
