The joy of winter

OK. Now I’m getting worried. Today is the First of July and I’m wearing sweats. It’s chilly in Minnesota this time of year, ya, you bet’cha. This is serious soup weather. Fifteen degrees below normal. Oatmeal anyone?

Two Minnesota men are damned bad writers – and proud of it. They both placed in the annual contest that celebrates putrid prose, the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest.

Book tout. Read Healing Spaces by Esther M.Sternberg, M.D. Something good clicks in your brain when you are immersed in soaring view, mountains, empty beaches, clouds. Got the picture? Disney did. Now hospitals and nursing homes are trying to follow suit with nicer surroundings. Makes the trip to the colonoscopy more pleasant.

Yesterday, in Phase One, U.S. troops began to pull out of the cities in Iraq (a move of only five to ten miles). Guess who made it political and fussed the loudest? Not the libs. It was Dick Cheney. Has he forgotten that the date for withdrawal was set under the Bush/Cheney administration?

Speaking of the crazy right wing, Rush Limbaugh claims President Obama has plans for a third term. How? He’s not even a U.S. citizen. Hell, Obama is probably an alien.
