In the news

  • Police made an arrest in the January murder of Plano resident Sherlock Holmes. When asked what had helped to crack the case, police detective Lt. Watson responded that it was “elementary”.
  • A bank robber who disguised himself as a woman to hold up a bank last week was arrested. He looks forward to his new notoriety in the prison yard, where he is known as “The Drag Queen Bandit”.
  • Barack Obama said that “all sides had to compromise” to reconcile the House and Senate versions of his huge pork handout bill. The President cited the $500 per person tax cut which he promised in the campaign as something he had given up. Congress scaled it back to $400. Biting his lip in a fashion reminiscent of BJ Clinton, BO said, “It’s a sacrifice for me, but I’ll just have to live with the fact that for the foreseeable future you’ll all have to keep sending me that hundred dollars a year.”
  • When two BO appointees were withdrawn for ethical reasons concerning their failure to pay more than a hundred thousand dollars in taxes, reporters asked if another tax cheat, Tim Geithner, would keep his job as head of the IRS. BO responded, “The American people are tired of hearing this same partisan bickering. We need to get back to the important business we came here to do: attacking rich people for failing to pay their fair share.”

It was probably just wishful thinking on my part, but during BHO's address the other night, I thought I sensed foreshadowing when the Prez said "...for as long as I'm President."

Made me wonder if he's not liking this gig as much as he expected he would.

And it did chap me to hear the repeated references to "inherited" problems. Hey, he campaigned for this job and got it. He needs to cowboy up, grow a pair, and quit griping. It doesn't matter what came before - it's his problem now.

Where's Harry S Truman when you need him?

I just hope the Plano PD acknowledges the assistance of Scotland Yard and MI5 in cracking the case...
