One of a 100,000

This week, in Austria, quietly and without worldly fanfare, Natascha Kampusch announced that she would be starting a interview show on Puls 4....network starting up on cable in Austria.

For those who don't remember Natascha....she was the kid who was kidnapped around age 12 and kept a prisoner by a guy in his garage (the grease bay pit). For eight years....he kept Natascha a prisoner......and only by a mistake....he put her into a position to escape....and she finally got away.

I sat and watched her a few weeks after the escape....where they had a live interview with her. I expected a "lost" individual....someone with issues and no ability focus. I was wrong. Out of 100,000 individuals he could have kidnapped that day.....he picked the only one who had resolve and could survive. Natascha took the TV he offered, the books, and the magazines.....and simply forged ahead. She learned things the hard way....but she learned from a vast audience....with only time to absorb and perform self-analysis. The other 99,999 would have become idle and despondent.....seeking no information or reality. She was different.

I find this career move to be unusual....but probably the best job in the world for a person like her. She absorbs the situation.....the information....and mentality comes to conclusions. Its hard to think and react like this. Most folks are always a step behind.....Natascha likely thinks a step or two ahead. She is not "lost" and certainly not a nut as one might expect.

I have high expectations from this young lady.....who is capable of so much in my mind. I'm thinking in the years to come....she will emerge as a major interviewer in Europe.....and probably be respected for thinking beyond what would normally be expected.

The McGreevey Case

Dina McGreevey is the gal married to former NJ governor James McGreevey, who turned out to be gay and also hired some idiot from Israel to be on his staff, but to serve as the boytoy. Dina wants a divorce and lots of money from Jim. Jim says....as does this other guy....that Dina and the governor, and the third guy....before the marriage....had lots of meetings....very lusty hot meetings (you know). Dina has kinda hinted maybe so, but she deserves lots of Jame's money.

So today, we learn that Dina had to pay $30k for her wedding....and the husband didn't pay a dime. In fact, she had to invite a number of political friends....as part of this deal.

I feel kinda sad for Dina....she got into a pretty sour deal....tossed in $30k.....and just wants her fair share.....but to be honest....I doubt that James has that much money (having paid off the boytoy probably).

Dunkin Dimwits?


First, I really don't know who the hell Rachel Ray is.....maybe being outside of the US for fifteen years triggered that. But then this week....my favorite donut company got into a big fit over their ad with Rachel.

Apparently, Rachel is a spokesperson, who wore some kinda Jihad scraf for the picture taking there for Dunkin Donuts. After this appeared in public....they yanked the picture saying that it was inappropriate. So I went out and looked at the damn picture.

Dunkin Dimwits....has a problem. In fact....I'm kinda wondering why the hell I buy my donuts from them....other than they make damn good donuts, particularly the glazed edition.

So I sat there and thought long and hard on this. Do I buy donuts because of a picture of some Jihad mama or do I buy glazed glazed donuts because they are damn good? This is a great Socrates question. It took 3.5 seconds for me to make my decision. I eat damn good glazed donuts from Dunkin Dimwits....because they are that good. I don't really care if Jihadists run the organization or some green nutcase who likes polar bears runs the joint or if the sugar is carbon-free (which it isn't).

So, my message to Dunkin Dimwits. You have heavy competition from Krispy Creme....who has leftists and democrats running their organization. Don't be fooled into a Jihad war with Krispy Creme. You can win. Dunkin Dimwits has the best round donut that money can buy. The glaze....is like stuff you'd only get on Xmas day from Grandma. Don't sit and worry about Jihad pictures....just let the damn donut sell itself. Put the donut on the ad....and have a steaming cup of coffee next to it. Thats all we really need. And tell that Rachel Gal.....to quit shopping at Jihad Mart....get a real American shawl over at Walmart for $6.99 (made in Mexico of course).
