Sometimes, no news is no news

Generally I have no idea what subject I’ll write about each week until a news blurb or random thought rings my bell. I guess that’s why I have a cere-"bell"-um.

Not true. Hopefully my fingered thoughts are connected to my cerebrum, not my mid-brain and surely not my reptilian hind-brain. At least that’s my perception, notwithstanding regular comments to the contrary.

However, this week produced no ding-a-ling, not even a clunk. Oh there was tons of stuff flowing out of the television tubes and off the printing presses but nothing that seemed especially fascinating or noteworthy.

President Obama went to Israel. Since his motivations always seem exclusively political, I figure it’s just another campaign event, so give absolutely no credence to anything he says.

Some schools have banned the term "Easter" for any celebrations this year. They’ve renamed Easter eggs "spring eggs." Why do parents stand for stuff like this?

On the heels of that nonsense word came that a school principal up north canceled recognition ceremonies for honor-roll achievers because non-honor-roll achievers would be attending. Had this weirdo become a preacher, I assume he wouldn’t marry anybody unless everybody in the room got married.

FedEx agreed to buy 14 jets from United. Good. Now QVC can deliver my wife Ann’s orders faster.
