No doubt, Salinger was a great writer, but he may be better known to some for his reclusiveness. Scott Ditzler at Kansascity.com gives us a good essay on this subject and Salinger’s work.
Did you know those Bengal ticket prices have gone up again? It doesn’t bug me in the least as I never ever go, but The Cincinnati Man has a poll going on to get your thoughts on it.
Wonkette tells us that President Obama had a “therapy session” with the House Republicans last week. My question is—why? Mr. President, you will never get these people to see it your way, so stop reaching out to them. Just push your ideas through. Your constantly trying to understand the GOP is becoming annoying.
Speaking of Obama, The Huffington Post tells us actor Mel Gibson doesn’t think the President can fix the mess we’re in which leads me to ask another question: Does anyone really care anymore what Mel Gibson thinks?
And don’t homeless people have enough problems? The Cincinnati Nation reports that a homeless man was beaten up on Walnut Street downtown a few days ago. Yeah, I know. That is soooooo Cincinnati, but still.
John Edwards—you know the guy who ran for president a couple times—is in the news again. Newsobserver.com is reporting that perhaps Edwards lifted his wife’s lime green wallet that had over $300 in it.
Maybe he was just trying to help her out. I mean who the hell should want to own a lime green wallet?
