I am supposed to write a Newswithviews column today, but I don’t know what to write about. Scanning the news of the week so far, we find an embarrassment of poverty. I mean, do I really want to write about drag queen shows at Nellis Air Force Base being held up to us as morale boosters and part of military readiness? How far could I go with that without tossing my cookies? If we ever have to fight a war against someone who can fight back, we’re done for.
I notice in the cartoon that the poor brain is positioned where the 8-ball would normally be. As Edgar Rice Burroughs once said, to be behind the 8-ball and out on a limb at the same time is very bad business.
Look, I’ve got to go pick up my laundry. If you’ve got any suggestions, I’ll read them as soon as I get back. And then I really must write something.
