To Be Somebody . . .



I tuned into the morning news and heard that the stores are nearly overwhelmed by the super long lines of customers waiting to buy the new Apple i-phone. And some were even selling their place in line, for hundreds of dollars.

All for a freakin' telephone.

And smirking (not outraged) protesters are throwing rocks at police in front of some U.S. embassies in cities all over the planet, while the president holds secret meetings, or so it's reported. Insanity among the human race is apparently growing, and for no real reason.

Except to grab their fifteen minutes of fame.

Good Golly Miss Molly!



  1. Gene, Isn't it odd that we still call them phones? Youngsters today will have no idea what the label "phone" means (never mind the "tele" part of the original word).

    1. Yeah . . . and I still say, "dial the number."
