Enough already: My guess is many of the people who are upset by jokes about Dick Cheney’s heart transplant (comedian Argus Hamilton: At Dick Cheney’s insistence, his new heart is equipped with the world’s only gasoline-powered pacemaker.) are some of the same people who laughed at this.
It’s to be expected, I guess. But two wrongs don’t make a right and maybe we all should be a little more careful about what we say and how we say it.
Maddening: After reading a ton of stuff already today about the fifth-season premiere of the TV show “Mad Men,” it feels as if I am the only person in America who just doesn’t get it.
I’ve been a periodic viewer of the AMC series and I watched most of it Sunday night. I like it. But I just can’t work up the passion about it that everyone else seems to have.
Just an update: Today marks the one-month period of my unemployment. All I can say is what a long, strange trip it’s been. And all I can do is keep truckin’ ahead. This is a trip I don’t want to last too long.
For any potential employers who might read this, what is more important to me than anything else is having a purpose and workplace where I can go every day and channel my energy, passion and commitment. I’ll be glad to have that back in my life as soon as possible.
