Time to get back on that Blogtown pony pardner.
But what should we talk about?
There is so much.
The Board of Elections?
You can't make this stuff up.
But what happens next?.
Abolish the Board of Elections?
Or maybe the legislature needs to change state law -- and take this appointment power out of the hands of party chairmen and other hacks.
We try to keep it light in this space, but Bill O'Reilly's reaction to one of the recent sprees of gun violence maybe bears comment. He said: We will always have mass murders.
Can't do anything about it.
Doesn't this take reaction to gun violence well beyond desensitization? I guess it takes it to the level of macabre and absurd passivity.
The fact that a company in Oklahoma is selling bulletproof blankets for school kids (and business has been brisk) pretty much illustrates our society's total surrender on the gun issue.
We can't or won't do anything about guns.
We can't or won't do anything about keeping guns out of the hands of people with serious mental problems.
So the solution is to provide children with bulletproof blankets.
In the 1950s and 1960s, we were told to crawl under our desks in case the Ruskies dropped a nuke nearby -- as if hiding under a cheap school desk would magically protect you from being vaporized.
In this modern-day version of "duck and cover," hiding under a bulletproof blanket from a deranged gunman is just as futile a covering yourself with a desk in the event of a nuclear explosion.
What have you got in the News of the Weird Department?
Glad you asked.
In Minnesota, Nicholas Wig is facing 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines for breaking into the home of James Wood.
The way they caught him puts Wig in serious contention for the world's dumbest criminal.
While ransacking the place, Wig couldn't resist using Wood's computer to check out his Facebook page and forgot to log out.
No word yet if Wig and Wood are Facebook friends.
I wonder if the police department clicked "like."
