Perhaps they will do a weekend supplement

I am filling out more forms so that we can continue to live in the USA.

In addition to testifying that we are not Communists or Nazis – do not practice polygamy - and do not intend to overthrow the government - we are required to list:

“your present and past membership in or affiliation with every organization, association, fund, foundation, party,  club society or similar group in the U.S. or in any other places since your 16th birthday”.

Blimey – I will need to rack my brains over this.

But I am beginning to think that the USA is Detroit – but Detroit got there sooner.

Each day there are depressing stories about the crumbling infrastructure – long term unemployment – mind-boggling illiteracy - poverty on a scale which is difficult to comprehend in a country such as America – and a Congress which is so dysfunctional as to be a menace to society.

Today was better – the New York Times was not delivered so I contented myself with the Indianapolis Star where the main story was about the state fair.

They could not devote the usual amount of space to Obama bashing – but perhaps they will do a weekend supplement.


  1. For some reason I can't fuLLy eXplain, your second paragraph reminded me of the Donnie and Marie Osmond hit song, "I'm A Little Bit Country, I'm A Little Bit Rock 'N Roll", perhaps it was the polygamy reference.

  2. esb: I don't remember the song - but I was not a great fan.

  3. I remember that song!!
    They used to sing it every week on the Donny and Marie show.
    I loved that show when I was a little kid.

  4. head in the sun: I don't even remember the show!
