So much is happening; I find I don’t know where to start. That horrific cruise ship accident really boggles the mind. I find I must be careful not to get too excited; but, it is hard to stay calm when I watch reports on this cruise ship’s “captain?” and I use “that” word lightly.  That man shames his profession. But I fault the Cruise Lines too! Was there no “chain of command” on that ship? This morning FOX showed a passenger video of a female crew member who took it upon her self to help passengers evacuate the ship! The member was amazingly calm! I wonder how many lives she saved with her courage and professionalism? Sadly the last lives unaccounted for may remain a mystery. Te ship rests on a ledge and is about to go over the side with its remaining fuel aboard! I hear this wreck compared often to the Titanic. There is no comparison except for the loss of human life due to arrogance. T he crew of the Titanic responded admirably to their crisis. Her Captain did not flee his post! I will keep those missing in my prayers!

On a different topic, it seems the jobs and resource freedom offered by the new “pipeline” won’t happen. Is anyone really surprised? I’m not. We all could see that coming! Maybe we need to thank Canada for hanging in there so calmly. A less patient people would be furious at the revenue loss they are incurring while our President puts a nix in the pipeline project. Does this man really thin he can get re-elected? If he does, we have only our selves to blame for the consequences!

How about Perry? He did the responsible thing, I admire his decisions. Took a lot of courage and sense of duty to do what he did. It certainly has moved Newt up the ladder. I suppose he is my choice since Palin was so badly battered until she had to back off. American politics are a risky and shady venture. Like many nations we also have our corrupt, rich, and powerful pulling string. Then we also have our clueless public!! Can you imagine a Palin and Newt ticket? The President would be left at the starting gate! [sorry, should that be golf tee?]

The Va. government is getting worried about the rats [four-legged kind] increasing in number in D.C.’s “Occupy Camp!” Apparently D.C. has some unusually humane laws foe dealing with these disease-spreading creatures. A caller on a local Richmond, Va. talk radio show suggested that since Richmond has an abundance of feral cats, we capture our cats and “send them to D.C. to clear up their growing “4-legged rat problem!” Guess they’re stuck with the “2” legged rats until they vote them out of office!! I wonder if those D.C. rats are anything like those NY rats. When I worked in D.C. for telco, the NYT guys always joked about how large their rats were. Think maybe we were bored for topics? No way! According to NYT guys NY has some huge rats in their sewwers! MY thoughts, “Go for it Ken!” You gotta admit Va.’s Attorney General has “real family jewels!!”
