On my mind…

 

-why do we bring people who are not experiencing life threatening or altering illness or injury to emergency rooms via ambulance?

-if fully armed unmanned drone aircraft were affordable would the second amendment protect our citizens's rights to own one?

-does the NFL's desire to have their coaching ranks be filled with a racial mix more closely resembling the general American population trickle down to the player ranks?

-did everybody's heart stop when half the lights went out during the Super Bowl or was that just me and my Doomsday mentality?

-if the sun is killing us, why isn't everybody dead?

-has Hillary Clinton has been campaigning for President for twenty-eight years or was I born last night?

-why do I only recognize only 10% of Hollywood's "stars?"

-when did labor unions, communists and the welfare crowd get in bed together, and where was I when it happened?

-am I the only one who misses being surprised by who is on the other end of the line when the phone rings?

-or having the person on the other end of the line have to ask if my daughter is home?

-how come I only learned of the "debt ceiling and fiscal cliff" last year?

-why do I listen to talk radio when it is obvious their goal is to antagonize listeners and create division?

-what posesses me to try and figure this stuff out?

The Heart of a Stranger
"Thanks Mike. I just walked my kids to the school bus. We stood in the cold for 10 minutes. Then I had to drive to the school because my son forgot his shoes. When he called and said, "Dad can you bring my shoes to school?" I had to ask which pair from the pile…
