It’s been another bad week in the news. A powerful earthquake and subsequent tsunami devastated parts of Japan. The tsunami even reached the US West Coast and Hawaii. Much of the eastern US continues to have heavy snows and Biblical type flooding. Libya continues to be in turmoil with a developing civil war while the rest of the world stands by and gives the rebels no aid. All of the Middle East is at the boiling point.
The only good thing about the news this week is that the disasters have preempted the ridiculous stories about Charlie Sheen and Lindsey Lohan that have dominated the airways. Who cares about the dope head and his sexual exploits? I’m happy he has been fired by his TV network, but don’t care to hear anymore about it on the news.. Sheen was on all the talk shows and news broadcast. He is now giving a one-man stage show set for Chicago and New York. Thank goodness I have never seen his TV show. The thing that blows my mind is that Sheen has 2 million followers on Twitter.
Almost as bad as Charlie Sheen is Lindsey Lohan. Who cares if she stole a necklace? Just put her in jail and move on to the next case. Rehab isn’t going to help her. In her case, they should go back to an old treatment called a frontal lobotomy. That would also be a recommended treatment for Charlie Sheen.
I can’t wait for the wedding of Prince William. Maybe the news will shift to this multi-million dollar affair. I’m sure something will happen at this even that will capture the distorted eye of the news media. Maybe, both Sheen and Lohan will attend the wedding. It would be even more sensation if Tiger Woods attended along with Sheen. They could give the Prince a few pointers about his wedding night and great advice about how to handle women.
Well, it’s time to get back on the porch and turn the TV on to hear about the melt down of the nuclear power plant in Japan. That will set nuclear energy back for another quarter century and end the obvious solution to many of our energy problems. It’s back to fighting over oil in the Middle East and our dependence on these radical Christian and Jew killers for this precious liquid. We are nothing more than a Gollum in Lord of the Rings in our dependence on this “Precious.”
