Well, mistress number 14 appeared yesterday, and apparently, she's a cougar. Older than Tiger. Do we believe this? Sure, we do. By my reckoning, there will be 4 more. Because we all know Tiger never plays fewer than 18 holes. All right, all right. Stop the moaning.
It has been reported that Elin is consulting a divorce lawyer in California. She is trying to find a way to file there because in California, she can get half of his income. In Florida, she can only get part of it. Then, again, she has that pesky pre-nup to deal with in both states. Her lawyer is 86 years old, so I hope he lives long enough to do her a good job.
All right, I'll shut up.
There's no telling what kind of healthcare bill we'll get out of the Senate, but I wish they'd go ahead and pass it, and give it back to the House. They've made such asses of themselves, I'll be surprised if any of them get re-elected.
I'm still wanting something passed. At this point, anything will be better than nothing, despite what Howard Dean thinks. Because, once it's passed, it can be "tweaked" and added to over time. If nothing is passed, there will be nothing to work with.
And, by the way, in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette letters to the editor yesterday, some woman claimed that her Social Security check was going to be lower by $300.00 and her premiums were going to be raised by some $68.00. Liar, liar, pants on fire. She is also against healthcare reform. Big surprise.
I have been notified that my Social Security check will remain the same and premiums won't be raised. I must be one of the lucky ones.
Rush Limbaugh has announced that he is going to get married again July 4, 2010. Goody for him. Proof that if any sleazy man is rich enough, he can find a wife. Give it a couple of years, and she'll have earned her alimony.
In local news, our Colton's restaurant has managed to get a liquor license in order to serve beer and wine to their diners. This makes the 7th license allowed in our very dry county that is actually awash in alcohol. There is also a concerted effort afoot to place the local option issue on the ballot at the next election.
I am proud to announce that I was instrumental in helping the local Holiday Inn get a liquor license back in the '70s. That Holiday Inn is no longer there, but they were helped immensely by having a lounge for weary travelers who didn't want to have to drive to a local private club to have a drink with their dinners.
It has just never made any sense for this county to be "dry". Less so these days, when we are literally surrounded by "wet" counties and by Missouri, none of them more than a 30 minute drive away. Being dry has never stopped anyone who wanted a drink from getting one.
The times, they are a-changing.
