I'm really getting too old for this ! You know the drill. You get dressed, go out and party, and come home happy. True, but one forgets the fact that if one wants to dance, one has to pay the people in the band. Krystel's was going to close Friday, but due to unforeseen circumstances, they are closing and partying tonight at AREA 51. Then on Friday, we're having a post closing party at a friend's home. Saturday, they'll be taking me to the home!
As to the proposed parties for the CAT Award, nominations are still open, so If you see "one", let me know. As of today, Bobby Cutts Jr and Larry King are the current front runners. My thinking is the animal (Cutts) is leading, but remember, we are an equal opportunity Journal and all who qualify for the week in question could possibly win.
Larry King finally interviewed Precious. My favorite question was when he asked her what type of experience she had in jail. Larry King should know the answer to that. He was arrested and jailed in Miami, Florida for larceny in 1971 (ah, you didn't know that, did you?).
The Senate had an intelligent moment today as the proposed "let's just cede the United States to Mexico and we'll pick the lettuce" bill was shot down in flames by 14 votes. If the damned thing comes up again, it won't be while Georgie W.'s in charge. Being a "lame duck" the moment he was pronounced President, he's now even more lame and the republicans are begining the mass exodus to distance themselves from Georgie Boy.

Jack was sitting on a plane when a man came and took the seat beside him. The man was a nervous wreck, trembling and wringing his hands. Jack said to him, "What's the matter?"
"I've been transferred to Phoenix, Arizona", the man answered, "They're crazy there. They've got illegal aliens, race riots, gunfights in the streets, drugs, poor schools and the highest crime rate."
Jack said, " Relax, I've lived in Phoenix all of my life. The media distorts the truth. Find a nice job, put your kids in private schools and mind your own business. It's as safe as any place in the world."
The man relaxed and smiled, "Thanks, I feel better now, especially since you've lived there all you life. By the way, what kind of work do you do?"
"Me?", said Jack, "I'm the tail gunner on a Budweiser truck."
That's it for today, my little tail gunners and my special friends in Cincinatti.
