Once Upon A Time ...

...And They Lived Happily Thereafter ... Death!

Rewriting the Fairy Tales so that they become relevant:

Hear about the reunion of the M*A*S*H cast to film an updated sequel? It'll be called: H*M*O.

What if everything that could go wrong, hasn't happened yet?
Jack Sprat could eat no meat,
His wife could eat no mush;
You see she voted Democrat
And he voted for Dubya Bush.

Jack and Jill went up the street
To fetch a measly gallon of gas.
They cried, 'cause there was no laughter
They couldn't afford what they went after;
Big Oil had shoved it up their ass.

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to her bank's board
To get her poor dog a loan;
But when she returned the dog was gone.
The dog house had been boarded closed;
On poor Rover the bank had foreclosed.

There was an old woman who lived in a clodhopper;
She had so many children her cash went down the hopper.
To keep her kids warm she had to toil,
And 'Cause Social Security gave no raises
She had to had to set fire to all the laces,
It was winter and she couldn't afford the oil.


I don't watch a lot of Network News or particularly care for most of their journalists, but I did like Tim Russert.

I am astonished that to replace Tim Russert, media morons are talking the likes of Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman. Talk about major comedowns from Tim Russert's brand of professionalism.

I don't watch the news either. It's not really news, just something to make money from the gullible public.

Right you are. They sure pay those guys a lot scratch just to sit there and read what appears on a teleprompter.
