This has been a long time coming—well, maybe that’s not really true but at least it is this morning—but I am losing interest in politics. It all seems like a game to me.
I know Jeb Bush is one of the top 10 GOP candidates, but I can’t get excited about that and do we really want another Bush in the White House? As for myself, no. The thought of it makes me extremely depressed.
Apparently, there is also a math problem with ranking the top 10 GOP candidates. Here, NPR can fill you in. My hearts just not in it.
I may feel differently later, but for now, just wake me up if Bernie Sanders starts making progress.

What the hell. I think I’m just going to end the blogging week here with a Friday goodbye to David Letterman.
From one Hoosier to another: Goodbye.
There. I said it. Glad to get that over with.
I’m going to wait a few weeks before selling my “Late Show” stuff on E-Bay.
Relax. I’m probably kidding.
Dave’s last show was nearly perfect. Glad he went for the laughs instead of getting all sad about leaving. I’m sure he was sad, but I’m glad he didn’t show it. He’s a typical Hoosier (I should know).
Dave’s final top 10 was a stand out.
And just so you know, close to 14 million people watched his last show. That’s pretty damn good.
He’s going to be missed, but nothing in life stays the same. I think Dave knows this too.
I hope he has a good weekend and well as all of you. I shall return here on Sunday.

Well, golly. Nick Fradiani is our new “American Idol.” A year from now, will we even remember his name?
Why do so many “American Idol” winners remain losers? That’s kind of a mean question isn’t it? I really don’t mean it to be as I’m not a mean person, but at least it’s an honest question.
Let me back off a little bit as I’m probably not the one who should be asking the question. I make no effort at all to keep up on current music or what is played on the radio or any of that. Having said this, I went online and did a Google search of all the “American Idol” winners.
I’m thinking only three of them have had any kind of long term success—Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Hicks. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.
I watched season 9 of “American Idol” back in 2010. I kind of got interested in it. I’m not sure why—please just consider it a bad year for me.
The winner in 2010 was Lee Dewyze and he’s a pretty good singer. Have we heard from him since? No. Dewyze has not released an original album since he won. He has gone nowhere.
It has been announced that next season will be the last for “American Idol” and it’s probably beyond time for that to happen.
Sorry. There I go being mean again.

I’m not sure if Maurice Mattei was born and raised here in the Greater Cincinnati area or not, but this is where he lives now, so I’m considering him a local artist. Local artist need to be supported. I’ve said this here and other places more than a few times.
Maurice is truly an artist. He’s an illustrator, a photographer and singer & songwriter and musician—among other things. Here’s a link to his website.
He also makes very interesting videos and this is his latest—“I Found a Fallen Angel.” Enjoy.
I shall return here on Thursday.

Can you imagine something like this happening in a Wal-Mart parking lot? Why yes! Of course you can!
Near Cleveland, Ohio, a woman locked her car in a Wal-Mart parking lot with her dog inside it. The idiot woman got caught by a cop and this smart officer made the woman sit in her Nissan Sentra for a few minutes with the windows rolled up to see how she felt.
Click here to read more about this.
I love it. More police officers should be doing this. I mean, put yourself in their paws. I’m talking about the dog. Maybe that would wise some people up.

P.S. I’ll return here on Wednesday.
I haven’t written about this Twin Peaks reboot because I never really believed it would happen. I’ve heard rumors about it returning for years and if wishing could make it so, I would love to see it start up again even if just for old times’ sake. I don’t think I ever missed one show. Simply put, I loved it.
When Showtime announced they were going to do nine new shows, I started to get a little excited. Silly me. David Lynch, one of the creators of Twin Peaks, is backing out of the project—all about money, of course. Why is everything always about money?
Doing Twin Peaks without David Lynch wouldn’t be a bunch of fun. Cast members have a few things to say about that.
It all could still happen. Or not. None of this is life and death and I’m just going to believe it when I see it.

p.s. See you back here on Wednesday.
I was going to let this go, but it’s never really my nature to let anything go, so I won’t.
Idiot Chris Wallace has apologized to Kelly Clarkson about the comments he made concerning her weight gain. Oh, what a big man he is.
If I haven’t done it already, let me go on record as to how I feel about Chris Wallace.
I can’t stand him.
Mike Wallace, Chris’s father, was one of television’s finest journalists ever. Chris Wallace, Mike’s son, is a hack. Therefore, he actually does belong on Fox news.
Chris Wallace, you’re an embarrassment to your father. You’re probably an embarrassment to your mother too.
OK. I think I’m done now.
