~ o radio readers, please bear with us through this political season- election stuff to us is like crack to an investment counselor- we just can't get enough. You aren't the only one complaining, believe us. We have, throughout our lives, lost plenty because of our jones for politics- wives, families, houses, homes, jobs, intimate articles of clothing, etc. Political cycles that never break; candidates who start campaigning the day after the election; a presidential cycle that starts two years out; 24 hour news channels; Web sites and blogs; all sincerely, searingly, incessantly, insouciantly blah-blah-blabbing the minutiae, have ruined our lives more than once. It's sad and wrong- but fortunately it'll be over briefly come November- and we hope to be in Guatemala.
~ listening to Sean Hannity this ayem we heard a little taste of what's to come for burgeoning superstar Barack Obama, the freshman Democratic senator from Illinois who's walking on water this week. Hannity, who isn't quite ready to bludgeon the charismatic young man of color just yet, (it's not time) reminded listeners that Obama has admitted to using drugs and drinking in college, and that would be something we should all keep in mind before we make a judgment about his political being. (Obama is too good- he'd better look out- liberals who look as good as he does have gotten shot in this country).
~ Here we go again- it's MIKE WEBB WEDNESDAY, 10-25, when Webb returns for his insurance fraud retrial down in Judge Spector's court (rm 733, King Co courthouse) at 9a. If you can't make it, we'll be there.
