Oklahoma is once again making headlines. This time for taking out the trash, and whether or not it was done right. The state this week executed a convicted man who “raped and killed and eleven month old infant.”
Now take a minute to let that sink in … An eleven month old baby.
Big media fuss made over whether he is was executed fairly, humanely, whether or not he suffered. So who cares if he suffered, who cares how they got rid of this garbage. Dress up a clown and have him rush in the door and slap him in the face with a poison pie!
And don’t take twenty-years to do it.
A reader this week commented to that “they felt much better” since they stopped reading the news, since they stopped watching it on television. When you take a serious hard look at what is out there, well, it would or could certainty change someone’s mind.
Our local television channel has this Chef guy, he is on every now and then, whipping up gourmet delights for the masses. Big goofy white hat, he looks at the camera and says, “You can make this with any sort of nuts or mixture of nuts, and it is really good as well, the nuts keep for ages. But I doubt if they will be around for long.”
A quick cut to the cutesy movie star looking female reporter: “So while you go for the break. I am going to have a nibble on the Chef’s nuts.” Which should have really made Mom & Dad so proud after coughing up all that money for a quality four-year education in Journalism at the University Of Oklahoma.
Try this one: “The dog led them to her puppies, nestled under a log in the forest, there were three boys and two girls, which were picked up and brought to the vet.”
I am not making this up. Who writes this drivel anyway?
Channel Five, Late Breaking … Today’s AlAlzheimer’s tip for all you Senior Citizen Baby-Boomers in our viewing area: “You know how to tell you are getting old, you hear an old familiar song on the radio and the wife sez … “Is he still alive? Back to you Jan.”
Channel Nine … YOUR channel for news … “We are interviewing the oldest Oklahoma WWII Vet in the state. Today Buzz (reporters in Oklahoma have catchy first names), we are at the Veteran’s Hospital in Oklahoma City … What do you remember the most about WWII Jim Tom Littler (People in Oklahoma have three first names).”
“Ah, let me see?” Jim Tom, ponders this question for a bit. Smiles his best toothy smile (no dentures in his mouth) and says: “My good friend Hal and our last trip over Germany. Hal was a good bombardier, probably the best the Army Air Corp had ever seen, if only he hadn’t jumped on them doors to get ‘um un-stuck.”
Okay …. Have to leave you all now, the news is coming on.
I am off to walk my pooch. My favorite critic, my little dog that follows me where-ever it is that I go. Who is also my greatest fan. And no, before you say it or think it, “I am not his Daddy.”
