First, some smart guys came out and said eating five servings of fruit and veggies per day.....doesn't stop cancer or prevent cancer, period. So you can stop that crazy stuff that you were doing, and go back to eating Ho-Hos, Texas fries, bacon, and peanut butter from the jar. I realize most of you guys from Bama never knew about the suggested five servings of veggies and might have been eating seven servings of veggies because Grandma always said to do it.....but you chill a bit and just relax now.
Second, John Edwards mistress has decided that she will appear on Oprah in about four weeks. I paused over this and thought about what she would say. Somewhere in the first five minutes....she'll likely let you know that John is a stud, got awful lusty feelings, and likes special oils rubbed on his body. The question here....is.....do you really care? Frankly, I really don't want to know much about John's sexual habits, lusty feelings, or trailer trash hook-ups. I don't even want to know he wears boxer shorts or not.
Third, some airline decided it was time to charge you for carry-on luggage. Yep, just one bag could run you $45 for a carry-on. So even if you had a Wal-Mart plastic baggy that you tossed in a pair of socks, underwear and a t-shirt for a flight down to Orange Beach, Bama over the weekend.....they'd charge you $45 for that plastic baggy. Think about that, and then start asking yourself why you don't take Amtrak or Trailways buses?
Fourth, someone wrote up a list of the fifty most stressful colleges in America. I went down the list. These were all the fancy places where Johnny Junior pays $24k a year just for tuition (Harvard, Yale, Columbia, etc). I looked and looked for Bama and Auburn.....but just couldn't find them. So I'm guessing Bama colleges just aren't that stressful. Course, it could be that guys aren't that stupid who go to Bama or Auburn, and they don't feel too stressed out other than waiting for Grandma's beer money to arrive, or if the football coach quits.
Fifth, the LA mayor (Antonio Villaraigosa) has decided that his budget is so weak....that he's closing up shop two days a week at non-essential services (libraries, parks, etc). But the unions in LA came out today and said they'd investigate if he (the mayor) had the actual real authority to determine this and force it. The funny thing is that the city accountant also came out today and hinted that he thinks....unless something happens....that there won't be enough money to cover salary structure for May. It'll be curious how the union reacts then if there isn't salary money to cover things.
