02/10/2005: Let no Good Deed Go Unpunished
My "buds" over the Chicago Tribune, Don Wycliff (Public Editor) and Steve Chapman (Columnist) both have great columns today (and they KNOW I forgive them for working for such a "Republican Rag" as the Tribune historically is known to be)...so I had to send them each a note:
Don Wycliff wrote about This Absurd Practice of Governing Anonymously. I responded:
Interesting point today about "Senior Administration Officials"...but I'm more worried about those Pre-revisionist Historian's the White house has locked up in a room somewhere. You know, the people who are going to revise History before it ever makes it out the Front Door of the White House. That way it saves everybody the trouble of having free-lance revisionist history just going on willy-nilly about town. Nip-it-in-the-Bud...is their motto.
Steve Chapman writes about how After the Iraq election, self-congratulation abounds. So I wrote him this:
I am finding "Too Many Premature Ejaculations" abound too. Sorry about the double entendre in this idea (It's been a long week with lots of TLC duty 'cause my daughters have been tag teaming me getting sick with the flu...so I'm either slap-happy or much too easily amused by own inanities.)
But it has been a bit too much on the "premature" shouting of successful elections as if those "ejaculations" papers over all the issues of lack or security and services endemic in Iraq. However, "Will you still Love me tomorrow...?" (the tag line to a song by Carol King) is the question that's on my mind about what the future holds for Iraqi and US relations.
Well...another good deed for the day to check off my list. *whew*
