On my mind...

Don't care...... that Suri Cruise is still drinking from a bottle! She's 2 and 1/2! Why in the world would anyone care?? As if potential speech and dental problems are the only challenges facing the child of the Scientology Puh-Bah. Her daddy thinks we came from aliens!

DO care ...
... that Flint police foolishly bragged about a decline in violent crime one day and the next four days there are four homicides! Strangely, Super Chief-y still claims the number of homicides in the city is still less than last year at this time. Didn't we learn we don't brag when there is still time on the clock?? Shut up and play! Gotta back up the smack, fellahs! Pride comes before the fall...

... that a Celebrity Chef published a potentially fatal mix-up during a magazine interview when he recommended wild henbane as a great addition to salads. The Chef said henbane, but he meant fat hen. Fat hen is a weed. Henbane extract was the poison famously poured into Hamlet's father's ear, also often called nightshade. Seems like a pretty serious mix-up. Is he a government scientist??
... Care more because I think we have some nightshade in our backyard! Do we not have a more current example - or non-fictional account actually - of the danger of Henbane? Am I on Punk'd??

... that Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been released on a tether after a night in jail and after facing a felony assault charge today. I think it is a shame that he is the first sitting mayor in Detroit's 307-year history to spend a night behind bars. The Dude is having a BAAAAADDDDD year. I hate to see this happen to anyone let alone an up and coming young leader. What is going to happen to Kwame?

... that John Edwards is being accused of doing a campaign worker who eventually has his kid. I have always loved John Edwards. Now, his lack of media response is threatening his role at the convention! Tell 'em John! We need you. Repeat after me, I did not have sex with that woman!

... that Racist Groups Eye Boost If Obama Elected. Former Louisiana State Rep. David Duke has said publicly, 'We Have Lost Control Of Our Country.’ I remember when the former Ku Kluxer tried convincing folks he had changed the color of his ugly spots. Duke said Obama would be a "visual aid" to the idea that whites have lost control of America. Back in June, he posted an essay on his Web site entitled, "Obama Wins Demo Nomination: A Black Flag for White America." Obama "will be a clear signal for millions of our people," Duke wrote. "Obama is a visual aid for White Americans who just don't get it yet that we have lost control of our country, and unless we get it back we are heading for complete annihilation as a people." This just in out of Pearl, Miss., "They're not exactly rooting for him, but prominent white supremacists anticipate a boost to their cause if Barack Obama becomes the first black president." A Mississippi "scholar" said, "Instead of this so-called civil rights bill, for example, that says you have to give preferences to minorities, I think the American people are going -- once they see the 'Obamanation' -- they're going to demand a tweaking of that and say, 'You have to put the majority into office.'"
... Care more because while most Americans have little or no direct contact with white supremacists, organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center keep close tabs; the law center estimates some 200,000 people nationwide are active in such groups. That's 200,000 folks who are crazy enough to be proud of their association with supremacist groups. How many invisible members do they have?

... Finally, for the moment anyway, I ask this question: Is John McCain campaigning FOR Obama? I don't get his strategy of portraying Obama as a celebrity, comparing him to a rock star. I think it is further proof that the Old Guy doesn't get America! Dude, we love our celebrities and rock stars! Comparing him to Paris and Britney - calling him the biggest celebrity in the world? Dude, seriously, what are you thinking?? Hello ... Ronald Reagan?? Arnold Schwarzenegger? You could only dream of that much appeal!! Fire the old Dude whose creating the ads; he's a spy for Barack.
... Wait, is John McCain on Punk'd??
