Send bail…

Well, apparently I have been living in a cave the past couple of weeks.  I realized I have been immersed in my work, but I did not realize how far out of touch with recent national news I was until my regular Wednesday radio conversation with Bruce Kelly. 

Bruce asked me this morning what my thoughts were on Anthony Weiner.  Frankly, I had none as I had no idea who he was.  None.  Nada. Zippo. Zilch.  Prior to this AM I had never heard the name Anthony Weiner. Well, Bruce found this inconceivable.  He stated emphatically that I was the only person in the country that did not know about Anthony Weiner.

Bruce told me I should Google weiner so that I could catch up on the news.  Alas, I was too busy all morning to get to my laptop in my room so on a break I used one of NETC’s computers in an unused meeting room.  I googled weiner.  Oh my did a lot of stuff come up.  I was still trying to take in all the weiner hits when I was visited by a local police officer.  Apparently weiner searches on the government’s secure computers are not looked upon favorably.

So thanks Bruce Kelly for telling me to Google weiner.  Now I not only know about Anthony Weiner, I also now know  what the inside of a Maryland jail looks like.  The long and short of it is – this whole weiner thing didn’t end well.  Learn from my experience folks – only Google weiner from your home computer…or do the time.

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.

    Enjoyed the post, and the google story is something to remember! Keep up the writing, effective social commentary is a nearly lost art.
