I'm Back

It has been a while since I have posted to this blog. I was in an out of town, fought off a battle of pneumonia and just got lazy. There has been a lot of major and minor news since I last wrote.

-The tsunami and nuclear plant melt down in Japan;

-The termination of Bin Laden. The Pakistan government apparently had no clue he had been living within a mile of one of their military academies for five years;

-Floods in the US;

-Tornado’s in the US;

-Donald Trump bailed out of the presidential race after he learned President Obama was indeed born in the United States;

-Donald Trump exploded with numerous “F” bombs in a speech at a women’s conference in Las Vegas;

-On Meet the Press on May 15, 2011,Newt Gingrich referred to Paul Ryan’s Medicare voucher plan as right wing social engineering and was opposed to it. After taking heat from right wingers after this statement, on May 16, 2001, the very next day, Newt back pedaled and said he was in favor of it;

-There was a royal wedding in England;

-There is a new American Idol Champion;

-Oprah had her last show;

So, I have brought you up to date. I intend to get back to regular posting.
