I have been waiting all day to come home and watch the Sweet 16 tonight and see if my tournament bracket still had life. Then someone reminded that today was Wednesday. Not only am I not watching games, there are still two work days left. I want to sleep late so bad.
President Obama has a huge budget and apparently my grandchildren are going to be paying off the deficit caused by it. That’s going to suck but if everything goes according to plan at least they will have a quality education, a car that gets 40 miles per gallon on solar power and affordable healthcare. We have a deficit now and all we have to show for it is Saddam Hussein’s execution and some corporate bailouts.
Whenever a brother gets arrested in a high profile case in this area you can usually depend on several days of follow-up stories just so the public knows how crazy he is. Someone got arrested for stealing a truck full of waste from a major company and dumping it into a sewer drain and that story just disappeared. Can anyone explain that?
If there are any people around the country who are looking for a place to stash away some cash during the recession I would advice you to deposit it into the City of New Orleans bank account and tell them it’s for housing or parks and recreation. That money will sit there for years. There’s a high chance that even the people in charge of the money won’t know it’s there until you ask for it back.

I am making an official prediction that someone is going to put something on Twitter at the wrong time in the wrong situation and the whole social networking phenomenon is going to come crashing down. The next step from Twitter is a website where all you have to post is one word entries like “Happy” and “Sad” with the emoticon to go with it. This level of laziness will cause people to abandon every other site. I just gave someone my million dollar idea.
I volunteered to read to kindergartners on Fridays. I am not really doing it for my baby because she does a great job at making herself look good. I am doing it because the truth of the matter is there are some boys in her class without a dad around or not involved with the school work. I know the teachers and their moms are probably doing their best but I want them to see an actually example of a grown man that looks like them reading and having fun doing it. It sounds small but that’s a big deal living where we live. Sometimes positive reinforcement can be that simple. I don’t mind reading Dr. Seuss for a few minutes to get that point across.
In honor of my new reading adventure I would like to dedicate Children’s Story by the great Slick Rick. If the kids look bored when I start reading I will just start rapping this song. Well, maybe not this one. I know a few Blues Clues numbers I can add some soul to.
