A Wild Week of Whisker Biscuits

This was another one of those weeks where I read the news and scratched my head and thought everything is spinning out of control. I'd think we are all doomed, except that Dec. 21, 2012 has come and gone. For example, the Obama girls went on spring break to the Bahamas; and, Steve King, Iowa Republican was outraged that they went while the Sequester was costing people their jobs. I think he voted against every alternative to the Sequester. And on Gun Control, Democrat after Democrat is drifting away from supporting significant gun control legislation. After hearing today that Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz will block a Senate vote on any gun control legislation, NRA/gun industry lobbyist Wayne LaPierre said, "It takes more than a bunch of dead kids and grieving parents to bring us down." Vagina Monologues - In Idaho, a 10th grade science teacher is under investigation for using the word “vagina” while teaching a 10th grade biology lesson on reproduction and anatomy. One has to wonder what would have been the preferred term: sausage wallet, candy tunnel, love muffin, butter boat, sugar basin, trout basket? The pro-ignorance folks are at work here. Maybe I'm missing something here, but if I were to put together a list of the 50 most appropriate places and times to use the word "vagina," a high school sex education class on anatomy and reproduction would be pretty close the the top of the list. Supreme Court Justice Antonin said he didn't think there were homosexuals in the United States until the 1960's. Um, it's hard to even know what to say about that. But most of the pundits believe the Court will strike down California's ban on gay marriage and also overturn the Defense of Marriage Act. Both moves would be in the right direction. Given the country's evolution in support of gay marriage, gay divorce can't be far behind. And finally, a quote I can relate to: "I've spent most of my life golfing. The rest I've just wasted."
