It’s Time for All of Us to Take Alfred E. Newman’s Advice.
Just in case you don’t have enough to worry about lately, the President will be speaking to us tonight regarding the mess in Syria. Some say we need to do something after chemicals were used on their own people and others say we might just be starting a global war if we act against Syria for their actions. These are serious times made even more serious by the news not found on the front pages of America’s newspapers.
In case the Syrian news isn’t enough to turn your hair white, these headlines might do the trick. First, lets start with a new survey that is out that says that half of the students at Harvard University cheat on their tests. I guess the other half will look for loopholes to defend the cheaters at one of America’s most prestigious institutions.
Another headline in the Hawkeye State mentioned that Iowa is granting gun permits to people who are legally or completely blind. Are you kidding me? Next they will issue driver’s licenses to blind people so they can drive to get bullets for those guns. What are they thinking?
Lastly, and I purposely made it last for a reason, we can all sleep better tonight knowing that former NBA player Dennis Rodman has returned from North Korea after meeting with North Korea’s dictator Kim-Jong-Un. Word has it, he was negotiating a deal for Kim-Jong-Un to land a spot on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice”. Well, now we’ll all have happy dreams after that visit.
Does anyone remember Alfred E. Newman of Mad Magazine? Alfred had the best line for all of this madness. “What, Me worry?”
