Today’s news:

It’s only my opinion

Here are more questions that are scribbled on those bits of paper that have been accumulating in my favorite blue blazer.

Whatever happened to Ashley Alexandra Dupre? You really don’t remember her, do you? Ashley is the high priced hooker that brought down Client-9. You don’t remember Client-9 either, do you? Client-9 is the former governor of New York who resigned in disgrace. What’s he doing now? Eliot Spitzer has a job teaching three hours a week at City College. For that he is paid slightly less than three hundred dollars.Ashley’s services were $4,300 for four hours. My friend Marty wants to know %u2013 what do you get for $4,300 that you can’t get for a hundred and fifty?

Did my president ever apologize for saying “The Cambridge Police acted stupidly?” A cop I know says he didn’t and even though it is no longer an issue, he will remember it on Election Day. I wonder how many policemen feel this way.

Have you noticed that the left no longer mentions the large national debt incurred during the Bush administration? Anybody wonder why?

We are leaving on another cruise and Carol needed a few things. We paid a visit to one of America’s more popular stores and while she was shopping I browsed from department to department. I noticed that every item I picked up was made in Asia or South America. In the 30 minutes I strolled around I could not find one item that was made in the U.S.A. The jobless rate is the highest it’s been in a quarter of a century. They tell us that the recession is coming to an end. I’m sure it is so I have to ask %u2013 since we manufacture almost nothing, where will the jobs come from? Will Americans be forced to sneak across the southern border to %u2026.to %u2026 say, what do they do down there anyway?

*******

Why are some people compelled to say they LOVE everything they see on Broadway? Is it because after spending so much money for a pair of seats they would feel stupid telling the truth?

Think of Texas and you think of oil and cattle. Right? Did you know that Texas grows more than a third of this nation’s cotton?

Why do they serve toothpicks at steakhouses when a better product is needed? I will be loyal to the first steakhouse that serves up dental floss after a meal.I’ll also be loyal to the first airline that has Playboy in its In-flight Library. Who picks the junk they have now? I never heard of half those titles.

How much of my money is considered to be a “fair share?”I don’t mind paying my fair share. I just don’t want to pay yours.

And here’s a question from a bumper sticker I saw way down south %u2013 INSTEAD OF REDISTRIBUTING MY WEALTH WHY DON’T THEY REDISTRIBUTE MY WORK ETHIC?

The TV talking heads have been discussing the possibility of President Obama facing a primary before a second term. I am StanGershbein@Bellsouth.net asking %u2013 Should that become a reality, who would you like to see in the race? Al? Hillary?
