RANDOM THOUGHTS; DALLAS CHEERLEADERS
Is it true that the unobtrusive guys at a Prague gun show are Background Czechs? ... Someone recently died aboard a United Airlines flight. On the surface, this is distressing. But there are a lot of practical issues. If the deceased has an aisle seat and you are on the window, you have a problem. But if he’s got the window and you’re the aisle, then it’s not a big issue and you can relax instead of having to get up every time he has to go to the bathroom.
And if you are on one of those rare flights with meals, then you can tell the flight attendant "He'll have the chicken" and pick off the extra dessert. ... The troubled cruise ship Carnival Triumph has docked and apparently the triumph is that it docked. .... Good thing that United passenger didn't die on the cruise; it might have gone unnoticed during the turmoil. .... I know how to treat issues such as the love letters exchanged, whether by former David Petraeus, or other generals. Have them read at the next meeting of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "Well, if they are so interesting, let's just share them with the whole class." .... With the College of Cardinals needing to meet to select a replacement to Pope Benedict, the Vatican can offer a guide to how to break Congressional deadlock. Padlock the doors to Congress until there's a budget agreement and then stop delivering food if it goes on. Well that's how they did it in the Middle Ages and certainly a good deal of Congress seems stuck in the Middle Ages. ... Sure fire way to raise interest in the next Super Bowl (as if we need it)—offer a lucky fan a chance to go under center with one of the Dallas Cheerleaders; "38, 24, 36, oh who wants to hike anyway?" Then, there's the sure-hit life-size Dallas Cheerleader dolls.
