Happy Labor Day

I figure this three day weekend, which is a milestone of the end of summer, is as good a time as any to let my readers know what has transpired in my life. I’ll keep it short and sweet: In June, my wife of 16+ years and I separated. It’s irreconcilable, and divorce proceedings are underway.

Three amazing friends caught me as I did an emotional freefall. Nay, ~Y~ and Shelley. Thank you. I love and appreciate all three of you like you don’t know.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Is it any surprise that McCain picked a vice presidential candidate to so connected to big business and oil? I’m guessing he thinks selecting a woman shows he’s progressive and modern and all that shit. Likewise, I’m guessing there are plenty of dumbasses out there who will buy it.

Did you watch the Democratic Convention? If so, did you suffer through all the talking, dumbass newsfucks? I didn’t. I watched a live feed of it via satellite.

Best DNC Quote: "John McCain calls himself a maverick, but he votes with George Bush over 90 percent of the time. That's not a maverick that's a sidekick.” – Senator Bob Casey

Honorable Mention: “We need a president who puts Barney Smith before Smith Barney.” – Regular Joe, Barney Smith.

The Chinese
Speaking of progressive…The addition of Full-Contact Gay, Greco-Roman ballroom dancing to the Beijing Olympics shows the Chinese ain’t all about repression and human rights violations. Check it out here.

Quote of the Day
"We got plenty of money in Washington. What we need is more priority." — George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., June 2, 2008

The McCain Campaign to Obama, "We see your blackness and raise you a VAGINA!"

I don't know what to think, my jaw is still hanging on the floor beneath me since yesterday.

Hugs. Was married for 12 and had been on this ride before. It isn't easy, but my hopes and prayers are going out to you. Good things are yet to come!

"There once was a man named McCain,
Who had the whole White House to gain,
But he was quite a hobbyist
Of boning his lobbyist,
So much for his 08 campaign." - SC

Don't know who SC is - but thought I'd share.

Ahhh...I figured it something of this nature.
My thoughts are with you and hope the healing process for all involved is already underway!

Wow... I stopped by because of your comment the other day on my blog, just to see what was new in your world. I guess a lot more than I was certainly expecting.

I'm sorry to hear about your divorce. I'm sure that's totally inadequate, but it's still honest. I hate knowing anyone is suffering. Take care of yourself.

I wasn't going to reply to comments on this post, but decided I owed ou all a big thank you, especially you, my infrequent visitors whose blogs I check regularly.
