The Dude on the Right
I am very happy my mother celebrated her 80th birthday yesterday, but somewhat
sad I couldn’t be there for it. But what also makes me sad it I can’t find
a great caricature our resident artist did of my mom, my niece, and me, a bunch
of years ago, so I can’t post it here, yet. If I can find it, buried on
one of my back-up files of a back-up of an old hard drive, I’ll post it later. I also
found it odd that the City of Chicago folks are doing all they can to
drive businesses out of city, and maybe Target will actually
stick it to the aldermen, but sadly, that also means a lot of jobs lost for
people who really can use them, by closing some stores in the city.
But the other story really bugging me right now is about a
PBS documentary that might not air as originally intended for fear of getting
fined by the FCC. You want community standards, well, I’m thinking
community standards will say that veterans of World War II might drop a bad word
every now and then when they talk about getting shot at. But we’ve got to
save the children because Lord knows they aren’t using any of those words,
like shit or fuck. The good kids, like me, even at 39, know not to use
them in front of their parents, at least most of the time.
And, oh yea, congrats to the folks at
ExxonMobil! I’ll remember you when I’m filling up the Dude-Mobile with
some go-go juice tomorrow morning on my way to the Chicago Cubs game.
Thanks for listening.
That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
