Like many of you, I peruse the local papers and try to catch television news to try to keep myself informed. Of late, I find my perplexed/disgusted/amazed yet not surprised/ by several things. So, I'm dedicating today's post to some of these things. Feel free to add your own:
1) This whole Lynn DeJac case. From what I can tell, at the very least her boyfriend was abusing her daughter, Lynn stayed out all night and left her daughter home alone and her daughter had coke in her system. Lynn ain't no Anthony Capozzi, a truly innocent individual. She shouldn't be lionized and I'm disgusted that she will profit from this episode.
2) Frank Clark. How in this day and age can you bungle so badly and then try to cover up? Crystalynn didn't die of a trace amount of cocaine. This is a disgusting abuse of power to save a faltering political career. Frank Clark is a bum who should be thrown out of office.
3) The State of the GOP: I almost feel bad for New York Republicans who to some degree are victims of changing demographics coupled with the disaster that is Bush/Cheney. As someone who has mostly voted Republican, I believe the GOP is now reaping what it has sowed. Robber barons in Congress more concerned with feeding corporate benefactors than working for their constituents, spending tax dollars at a pace that makes the most liberal of Democrats blush and a foreign policy that has blown through our nation's credibility like a crack addict with a $20 bill. If the New York GOP goes extinct, it can thank people like Tom Delay for the end.
4) This whole Dr. Williams, McKinley High, fired basketball coach, suspended player saga. The Buffalo News has this in their teeth and they aren't going to let go. Each day, more of this sordid tale becomes public. I don't pretend to know the truth...but when we people learn the cover-up is always worse than the crime.
Well, that's my initial thoughts. Let's see what you've got.
