I am about ready to give up on the Cubs. And I'm sorry, but I cannot be a Sox fan - in the sense of switching allegiance. I like the White Sox and wish them well - but I will always be a Cubs fan. I just can't watch anymore.
Maybe next year.
For our guests overseas, our dating is done Month-Day-Year, whereas many of you use Day-Month-Year. At least our Years are in the same place.
Yesterday, CBS news reported that Republicans think they have found a chink in the Obama Administration's armor - and a chance at the White House in the 2012 elections. The Economy. They think the Economy is how they will attack Obama. I wonder how short they think the memory of the American People is? Whose policies were in effect for the eight years just prior to President Obama's election? Whose policies handed President Obama a ruined economy and broken housing market? On whose watch was it that Trust failed and Credit died?
I hope they aren't that stupid. It doesn't say much for Politics and Politicians if, in fact, they are.
Those of you who read me regularly know I am fairly liberal. Politically and personally. I suppose, if I had to pick sides, I would have to call myself a Democrat. But in reality, I would prefer to see bi-partisan politics rather than the divisive kind of shenanigans that seem to dominate the political landscape in recent times. I don't think that either Party has it all right. Both Parties seem to have forgotten the reason they exist - that ultimately, they pursue office to serve the people. That's an attitude poorly supported in current times.
This coming Saturday I'm to play a round of Golf with the Kendall County Democrats. That's as overt as I get.
I wish one and all a pleasant week.
Oh. I had my crown replaced the first thing Saturday morning. (Tooth, people, TOOTH.) It's been fine ever since. Thank you for those who expressed concern.
