If It's Not Moon Madness...
...then it must be something else. Whatever it is, things aren't looking so good. In fact, things are pretty dang bad all over. I'm not saying that mooning the whole sordid mess would help anything, but I'm not saying it would hurt, either. I'm just saying that things are in a bad, bad way and something's got to give. Things like:
- Merrill-Lynch, bought out by Bank of America. I've never cared much for BOA's reputation. Bodes ill if you ask me.
- Lehmen Brothers - Gone into bankruptcy; i.e., for all intents and purposes, just ... gone.
- AIG Insurance - Going, absent a small miracle.
- Hewlett-Packard's cutting 25,000 jobs.
- Gas - Up. WAY up. Here, the average is $4.14 per gallon. In some spots, it's over $5.00. And some stations have none to sell.
- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are now under government control; i.e., quite possibly on the way to gone. Fannie and Freddie ought to run off and elope while they can, because an ill wind always blows when the government sticks its thumb in a pie.
As if that weren't bad enough, there's a full moon going on. I'm not saying one thing has anything to with the other thing -- but my right brain, which suddenly slapped my left brain out of the way, wants to argue the point.
I'm not even going to mention the timing of the obliteration of Galveston, Texas, by Hurricane Ike.
Oh, and another thing -- it would be great if the moon influenced someone to beat the living crap out of Casey Anthony and made her tell where her baby's body is.
Now, tell me these aren't full-moon blasfomys.
hutzpah - The home of the uppity Grand Poobah of the Nomads.
enarly - Whatever this is, it must be nasty-gnarly.
editied - The book will never be published because it's tied up in editing.
Yup. Something's got to give. And that's about all I know. After mulling over a bunch of other unintelligible prattle, I suspect that's enough.
