I'm just trying to develop an online body of work (even if the work is throwaway nonsense) to advance my writing career.

A Stitch In Prop 9

According to The Root, Dr. Cornel West is upset with President Obama because Obama confronted and "demeaned" him, treating him like a "Cub Scout." Look, Dr. West, you're the one who accepted roles in the Matrix sequels; nobody made you do it. Sooner or later, you knew you were going to have to pay for that decision. All right, so "Reloaded" wasn't awful, but "Revolutions" didn't make any sense at all and the Prez probably wanted to say something to you about it for a long time, but never had the opportunity. Granted, you out-acted Keanu Reeves, but who couldn't?

Speaking of the Commander-in-Chief, happy 49th birthday! Feeling old yet? The job grinds people up. We don't necessarily condone expensive and largely unproductive military operations, or NOT having sexual relations with "that woman", or trading arms for hostages, or breaking into the opponents' headquarters and obstructing justice, or expensive and largely unproductive military operations, but, to a certain degree, we understand. It's a tough gig.

Isn't it great that the US President who got stigmatized as a clumsy oaf wound up living to be 93, a longer lifespan than any other individual to hold the office? President Ford, I hope you're up there "tripping" in Heaven!

I tried to be a pet psychic, but it didn't work out. I could communicate with the animals just fine, but they all told me telepathically that they didn't believe in psychics and to get lost. Stupid animals!

Now that Proposition 8 has been overturned, maybe California can get on with Proposition 9: no more guys from the cast of "Predator" running for governor. I'm looking at you, Carl Weathers! Nothing personal, it's just that the idea came too late to keep Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jesse Ventura and Sonny Landham off the ballot. Obviously, Ventura and Landham ran in other states and Landham's bid was unsuccessful, but maybe if California passes such a measure, the rest of the country will follow suit. Incidentally, if you have ever thought Schwarzenegger and Ventura might be a little touched in the head, get a load of Landham. He's crazier than both of them combined. He's even crazier than the character he played in "48 Hours".

The older you get, the less often your parents begin nostalgic anecdotes with the phrase "when I was your age" because, well, you remember when they were your age.
