We had a lovely dinner at Mom's last night.
It was nice to have nearly all of us
Only Mikey was considered too sick to
be in our presence...poor kid.
Anyway, Georgia was there for the first
time since her surgery,
Pastor Mike was very brave and did come
down...he has a very healthy respect for
Mom made roast beef and Potatoes...
I made her a birthday cake.
It was all very nice.
Then as the food settled in us for a while
we chatted around the table.
Personally, I love after dinner
When Dad was still alive we would have
some of the best times.
We would laugh till we thought we could
just split in two.
But, last evening the talk turned to the
news of the past couple of days.
I sent Chelsea on home since the
boys were already here and I knew this was not a
conversation for young ears.
It is an important conversation, none the less.
We are in an interesting time in our history.
The media plays such a large part in how our
politics play out.
We are overexposed.
I do not believe that it is right to have
committed the wrongs that Mr. Spitzer has
I also do not believe that he is the only man in
a powerful position to be acting in this way...
He certainly set himself up for the take down
by making many enemies and presenting
self righteous attitudes over the past
We reminisced about men in history and how
we now know of their wandering ways.
We talked about how in days of old the media
knew but looked the other way.
Which was better?
I don't know...
But I do know this...
I do know that every time I turn on
my television these days I have to switch
the channel to HGTV or something equally
as innocent to avoid...
