Ennui

I am still alive, though I've had little about which to write over the past week. Part is a lack of imagination, part ennui, though I did have my kids and grandkids in town.

I suppose I could espouse on the Secret Service matter, about which I care little, if at all. The President is always protected, notwithstanding the dalliances of a few Secret Service guys.

There's always the price of gasoline, which is just going to kill the economy; and, of course, the lack of job creation that the fat cats are supposed effect with tax cuts. The House just passed one (the Senate probably won't) and those old Bush tax cuts did nothing.

Finally, however, income disparity is becoming an issue and maybe a focus in the campaign and next year's Congress…but I doubt it.

Romney continues to cater to the wealthy, Obama, well, I have no idea what he's doing.

Surely we have better candidates somewhere.
