Curmudgeon in the Wry 536


Wednesday, November 14, 2012---774 Words---Average Reading Time: 2 Minutes, 39 Seconds. (A pointless waste of time---time frittered away)
Offending readers and hindering productivity one issue at a time since 2001.
Continuing to call them as I see them.
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.
If you want this in a different language…move to a country that speaks it!
Gluten Free.
Why waste your time anywhere else.

Rave: College Basketball has started!
+++++++
+++++++
Truism: YouTube videos don't kill people. Terrorists kill people.
+++++++
Truism: What happened on Election Day was suicide by vote.
+++++++
Quotes: “The only bucks that stop with obama are those donated to his re-election campaign.” & “He (obama) spouted more fibs than Joe Isuzu.”~~~Burt Prelutsky.
+++++++
Rave: If you eat while on the computer you've probably covered your track-pad in a thick layer of greasy finger-residue from snacking. A post-it note over your track-pad prevents the grease from soaking in.
+++++++
Didjaknow: The Dodgers have called Chavez Ravine’s Dodger Stadium home longer than they played host at Ebbets Field.
+++++++
You Know You’re Old: If you remember being amazed the first time you saw a Polaroid Camera develop a picture right in front of your eyes.
+++++++
Quote: “In a different age, obama would have been the guy who went out and bought an Edsel. In this age, obama is the guy demanding that you buy an Edsel, too. That car is today called the Volt.”~~Bret Stephens, WSJ Editorial, 10/30/12.
+++++++
Rant: All watching Connie Brittan on ABC’s “Nashville” has done for me is to remind me how much I miss “Friday Night Lights.”
+++++++
Great opening paragraph: When Scott Freeman first read the letter that he found in his daughter’s top bureau drawer, crumpled up and stuffed behind some old white athletic socks, he knew immediately that someone was going to die.~~~John Katzenbach’s “The Wrong Man.”
+++++++
Didjaknow: The recidivism rate among terrorists rivals that of pedophiles.
+++++++
Rave: ABC’s “Revenge” does a spectacular job creating a world of characters, shifting alliances, hidden motivations and unknown intentions.
+++++++
Quote: “The truth is that most people are far more grateful when a plumber or an electrician shows up at their front door to solve a problem than when a literature major or a sociology grad drops by for dinner.”~~Burt Prelutsky.
+++++++
You Know You’re Old: If you remember what a Kodak Moment was.
+++++++

+++++++
Rave: CBS has cleared “Vegas” for the full season.

Ho Hum: 2012’s World Series matched the AL’s seventh best team and the representative for the NL that was tied for third best. Maybe that is one reason why the ratings were the lowest in years. Part of the reason for the low ratings might have been the lousy announcers (Buck and McCarver) that Fox continues to think of as the A Team.
Sorry, but I subscribe to the Dwight Jaynes School of Baseball Broadcasting…that is, using the local broadcast teams throughout the post season.
+++++++
Hmmm: Crossword puzzle clue = Eight letter word for “An Arab who ran out of ammunition?”
Crossword puzzle answer = “Moderate.”
+++++++
Rant: Chavez, Putin, Castro, obama---The Marxist Brothers.
+++++++
Truism: Most people are not listening to the radio, they are just hearing it.

Quote: “’Need’ now means wanting someone else’s money. ‘Greed’ means wanting to keep your own.”~~~Joseph Sobran. That’s the obama mantra.
+++++++
One Final Thought: The St. Louis Cardinals' postseason success without Albert Pujols is further proof that a well-run franchise can continue to win after letting go of an overpaid, beyond-his-prime slugger. Yankees, take note.
+++++++
If you can read this, thank a teacher.
If you can’t, thank the teacher’s union.

That is all.
As you were.
