Today is a big news day. Protests against Obama receiving an honorary degree from Notre Dame. Obama backtracking about releasing photos of interrogations abroad. Obama talking about the need of the govt to spend less and save more. Pelosi accusing the CIA of lying to her and the CIA director, Dave Pannetta accusing Pelosi of lying about what really went on.
On top of that, today is Armed Forces Day. Does anyone remember – or even know – what that is all about?
Me? I’m observing all this. The Ol’ Curmudgeon talks back to the TV, grousing and complaining as if each objectionable story is aimed directly at him. I observe – the stories and him. When it gets to be too much for him, we switch over to watching DVDs. Currently we are watching Deep Space 9. Netflix has the entire series – or at least all those out as yet.
Does anyone remember the movie Mondo Cane? “The world is going to the dogs,” was the theoretic subtitle.
Well, maybe it is. Maybe it’s the End Times. Maybe it’s just another blip on the screen of life.
