A busy day for me, considering it's a day off. Lots of chores and errands to run, and it's been around 147°. Anyway, settling in for a bit of news was a bit difficult, at least on the cable stations. I mean really, an O'Reilly Factor marathon? Who needs that?
But a quick perusal of the internets does turn up a few nuggets. Let's see what's happening today:
This can't be good: GM, Ford, Chrysler Sales Drop in June.
And anything out of this guy is bound to be depressing: Again, Bush calls for patience.
Uh, sure, whatever. And bad news for the guy who was actually elected President in 2000: Gore’s Son Is Facing Charges in California After Freeway Arrest. Well that's an inconvenient truth, right there. Fodder for FOX "News" for a couple of weeks at least. Don't count on them to dredge up President Bush's or Dick Cheney's similar run-ins, though (or the Bush girls', for that matter).
UPDATE: It occurred to me later that Al Gore III had better clean up his act. . .he only has 19 more years of "youthful indescretions" left, if he wants to be President some day!
Entertainment news has the very sad: Opera Star Beverly Sills Dies. But also, the unbelievable cool: Bladensburg 7-Eleven transforms into Kwik-E-Mart.
And of course there were explosions all over the sky across America tonight, but I just can't get festive tonight. Martina McBride and Lee Greenwood just make me think of Sean Hannity, and who needs that?
