Curmudgeon in the Wry 457

Friday, November 13, 2009---634 Words---Average Reading Time: 2 Minutes, 9 Seconds. (A pointless waste of time---time frittered away)
Offending readers and hindering productivity one issue at a time since 2001.
Virtually free of original ideas.
Warning: Contains unsound bites from the apple of life.
Often wrong…never in doubt.
Being wrong is the risk you run by thinking and acting.
A Grumpy Old Man Production.
+++++++
Rave:
Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters.
+++++++
Reading: “Ford County Stories”—
John Grisham.
+++++++
On the Hi Fi:
Dean Martin’s “Forever Cool.”
+++++++
Under rated:
George Hamilton IV.
+++++++
Rave: College Basketball is back.
Go Duke!
+++++++
Rant: More and more games seem to be migrating to ESPNU…and we all know that the “U” in ESPNU stands for unavailable.
+++++++
Rave: Looking forward to debut of 2009 version of “The Prisoner” on AMC, Sunday at 8 PM. It has big shoes to fill…
the 1960’s version was surreal, Orwellian and enthralling. The Orwellian theme is especially applicable today.
+++++++
Quote: “Hideki Matsui is baseball’s first Mr. November.” —David Wilkner.
+++++++
Rant: There should be a special place in Hell for the pinheads who text while driving.
+++++++
Truism: Access to health insurance is not the same thing as access to health care. Ask the Canadians and Europeans flocking to U.S. clinics what the promise of “access” is worth over there.
+++++++
Hmmm: Ever wonder why the U.S.A. has so many of India and Europe’s best doctors?
+++++++
Good advice: Friends don't let friends change their own oil.
+++++++
Truism:
Marsha Blackburn is one tough cookie.
+++++++
Rave: TCM’s
Johnny Mercer special, “The Dream’s on Me” was just spectacular. As usual, Clint Eastwood produces a quality film…having a brilliant subject did not hurt. If you missed it…catch it Wednesday, November 18th at 6 PM or Saturday, December 19th at 2 PM.
+++++++
Hmmm: They used to call it the single wing….now it’s the Wildcat.
+++++++
Quote: “If politicians stopped meddling with things they don’t understand, there would be a more drastic reduction in the size of government than anyone in either party advocate.” —
Thomas Sowell.
+++++++
Truism: Self-directed work teams require lots of direction.
+++++++
Time out: The smell of popcorn in the office will produce an instant group following the aroma.
+++++++
Rant: Given the hopey-changey feelings of the current administration, I doubt whether the man responsible for the massacre at Ft. Hood will pay with his life for the lives that he took. PC has made “better screwed than rude” the way to react to suspected terrorists.
+++++++
Hmmm: Any truth to the rumor that if someone writes a book about this World Series, it will be titled, “The Boys of Winter?”
+++++++
Rave: Each Wednesday during December, TCM will feature all
Humphrey Bogart, all day. Starting with his 1932 film “Love Affair,” almost all the flicks are shown in chronological order.
+++++++
Rant: Not since FDR have we had a president so in love with the sound of his own voice as we have now. Does anything he says remain operative beyond the fading of the audience applause?
+++++++
Rave: There is no reason good enough not to wear comfortable shoes to work.
+++++++
Quote: “Talk about ego---the man (obama) can’t get enough of himself.” —
Linda Chavez.
+++++++
Rant: A lot of folks are going to feel idiotic going to rap oldies shows twenty years from now.
+++++++
Business maxim: The more time you spend decorating your office, the more often you will be moved.
+++++++
Rant: The dims are attempting to turn health insurance into a product that no rational person would buy and then forcing everyone to buy it.
+++++++
Truism: Smelling something burning is never a good sign.
+++++++
If you can read this, thank a teacher.
If you can’t, thank the teacher’s union.
If you are reading it in English, thank a Veteran.
That is all.
As you were
