Rambling Time

It has been almost eight months since I have done one of my
ramblings.  For some of you that read my blog you may be thinking that all
my posts are ramblings.  There have been some interesting things going on
in the city, state and country and I figured I would give my two cents worth.
 I usually comment on ten stories, but I will cut it down to five.
 So let’s get started.
No Slots in Worcester – Only part of me is disappointed in this
because the hole that sits in Kelly Square will continue to be there.  I
said before that I was neither for nor against slots until I saw what the
proposed host agreement would be.  Since both sides walked away from the
negotiations, there is nothing for me to be disappointed about.  I thought
the City Council handled this very well, they did not succumb to outside
pressure and they tried to make a go for it.  No harm, no foul.  It
didn’t work out, so let’s move on.  Now what to do with that land?  I
beg, no housing, we don’t need it.  
Car Jack This! – How about the carjacker that carjacked
an unmarked police car, with a Worcester Police Officer in it.  The
Darwinist in me had a very good chuckle over this.  I am glad that the
officer was not injured seriously and was able to apprehend the dumb suspect.
 However, doesn’t everybody love a dumb criminal caught story every now
and then?  That it happened in Worcester makes it that much more
Sick the Media – I must admit that I think the media can
be demanding and pushy sometimes when trying to get an interview, but if you
don’t want to talk to them wouldn’t a simple “no comment” or send a
family member out to keep them at bay.  Don’t do what a lady in Providence
did last week by throwing glass, swinging a bat and then for a finale letting
loose her pit-bull on the female reporter.  I understand that the woman
was upset and didn’t want to talk, but now she is facing charges for her
outrage.  A simple “No Comment” would have gone a long way.
Really? – An Austin company is selling lollipops
made out of breast milk.  I don’t want to say this is disgusting because
there are worse delicacies out there.  But what happens if this business
makes a go of it?  How many women will need to be on the payroll, and to
keep costs down will this get outsourced to a third world country and pump women,
and possibly young girls, with hormones so they can produce milk to meet
demand?  PETA tried to petition Ben and Jerry’s to use breast milk instead
of cow’s milk, in PETA’s eyes humans are more expendable than animals.
I’m Sorry I Slapped Your Son – A South Carolina woman was arrested last
week when she went to her son’s school after learning that her son had been
suspended.  When she arrived to the main office she slapped a boy whom she
thought was her son.  However, the boy she slapped was not hers; he was
just waiting to be picked up because he was not feeling well.  This woman
obviously suffers from face blindness. 
How does she not know the boy was not her son?  There are many things wrong with this story
but the fact that the mother’s first inclination was to hit should be the first
thing addressed.  I hope she gets the help she needs.
Bonus: Congratulations! – Over the past few weeks many high
schools and colleges have been having their commencement activities.  To
the graduates out there I can only offer the same advice that Mary Schmich
offered in an article in 1997.  “Wear
Sunscreen! If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen
would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists,
whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering
  Congratulations and God Bless!

If you don’t take it from me, ask my wife
