All I got today is random observations. So be prepared to be disappointed.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes gave birth today. Well only Katie gave birth. Tom just stood there bouncing on the furniture and telling Katie to be quiet. They named it Suri. This has inspired one sweet joke.

“Did you hear Tom and Katie named their kid, Suri?”

“Suri! You can’t be serious!”

“I am serious and don’t call me Suri.”

Come on! Laugh! It’s hilarious!

If you notice in recent appearances President Bush has seemed a bit agitated. I know he claims to not pay attention to polls or even read the papers. But somehow I think George knows his presidency is in dire straits. His poll numbers are bottoming out. Seven retired generals and admirals are calling for the resignation of Donald Rumsfeld. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are not going well, to say the least. The situation in Iran is looking rather bleak. Gas and crude oil prices are at record highs. It looks like the Republicans could lose control of either the House or the Senate, maybe both, come November.

Yes I think George realizes the party is over and it’s going to be a rough ride for this lamest of ducks. But I feel no mercy for him. He has made his own mess. Let’s see if he can even come close to cleaning it up. Of course if you know anything of George’s history then you know this how he seems to work, usually. He gets a job. He messes up. He leaves it for someone else to clean up. Yes it’s par for the course for George W. Bush.

If you watched any news today you heard that today (April 18th) was the 100th anniversary of the earthquake that devastated San Francisco. Interestingly enough when that earthquake struck President Roosevelt and War Secretary Taft had the Army on the scene in a day. Congress had the money approved by 4 PM the next day. By the end of the week every tent the military had was pitched and ready to offer shelter to those in need. In light of how poorly our government responded to Hurricane Katrina it makes you pine for the good ole days doesn’t it?

I leave you with a good quote.

“I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.”

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
