The passing of an original Mouseketeer, Cheryl Holdridge, who joined the famous corps in 1956 at the beginning of the 2nd season, occasioned a pause in the heartbeat of America, a momentary skip in the pulse as people “of a certain age” flashed back to a time when liking someone on television did not require defending indefensible behavior.
Since our cut-and-run Congress is hell-bent on repeating the Vietnam fiasco (with its ensuing regional bloodbath) and our Executive Branch is unable to hold onto its constitutional prerogatives, I will repeat my three year-old proposal first discussed on-air with Michael Savage.
For months I have gone to bed each night with the welfare of several young women on my mind, praying that those alleged friends and ten-percenters who enable such terrible behavior will finally put simple human values above their paychecks and find a way to leave a message for us at A Minor Consideration.
As predictably as sunrise the news arrived on Christmas Day that American casualties in Iraq now “equal” the number of deaths in the fall of the Twin Towers on Nine Eleven. Oh, what fanfare.

Enough already.
John Kerry’s comments before the collegiate unwashed reminded me of my often-voiced thought that those who refuse to admit the mistakes they made in the 1960’s are doomed to unending ridicule.
