Lost in the Kennedy death announcement on August 25th was the same day death of song-writer Ellie GreenwichIf you were around in the 1960s, you probably know the lyrics to a few of her over 200+ songs, including:
and so many more.
Illinois and Massachusetts have one thing in common: the quality of their politicians.
The canonization by the media of good old Teddy sweeps the dirt under the rug. This was a, spoiled, arrogant man used to wiggling his way out of messy situations through his wealth and daddy. Putting polish over the dirt doesn't make anything cleaner:
Although a C student, he was admitted to Harvard.
He was suspended from Harvard twice for cheating.
Oops, he inadvertently signed up for 4 years in the military, but daddy got that corrected to only
2 years and no Korea time.
He was cited for reckless driving 4 times at the University of Virginia, but no license revocation
Chappaquiddick - nothing more needs to be said except - suspended sentence.
Numerous extra-martial affairs and public sex display
And then there's all his wonderful legislation that has cost taxpayers millions of dollars and headaches

I have nothing exciting or stimulating to write about, especially regarding my life.
No health problems, no cute little kids to post pictures of, no lively teen angst antics in the house, no elderly relatives requiring constant attention, no relative serving in the military, no fabulous garden of flowers or vegetables, no vacations, no annoying co-workers, and no marital discourse.
No wonder few people read this blog. I may be the only totally rational, well-adjusted, sane person in the entire blogosphere.
Which makes me a total bore.
I even took a "What's your color" quiz on Facebook and I got this:
Yep, boring white.

My new guilty pleasure is Mad Men. The third season began this week, but it will be next spring/summer before I see it on DVD since I don't have cable.
Here's another interesting commentary from the UK about adult fear in being near children and its effect on society.
As one person commented following the article: "You think it is tough being a woman near children in a public place, you want to try being a man? Men do not want to be any where near children these days!and for good reason. The whole PC paranoia, all men are viewed guilty just because they are male is a reality..."
Pedophile-mania is getting nearly that bad in the US.
