Hey Blog Guy, I saw a picture of President Obama browsing in a Washington, DC bookstore. That’s pretty cool, isn’t it, that the president is such a devoted reader?
Yes, of course reading is a very good thing. But let’s not kid ourselves. Obama was at my neighborhood bookshop, Kramerbooks.
What’s up, Blog Guy? You look disgusted.
I am. Regular readers of this blog know I have little patience with the idea of buying things that belonged to evil people, just to own a bit of history.
November was another month full of news you can use from this blog.
Traffic stats for the 10 most popular items show that readers were especially eager to learn what makes the perfect gift, how to avoid as many of those Kardashians as possible, and what superstars miss most when they’re filming away from home.
They also appreciated my new insights into goofy history, with true stuff like what Abe Lincoln did on the South Lawn, and how King James I amused himself.
Blog Guy, this race for the Republican presidential nomination is getting pretty wild. First one candidate surges ahead, then another, then another. Now they’re saying former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is picking up support.
You really do? Is that based on your reading of the polls?
No, it’s based on pictures I just saw of new statues of Newt and his wife, at a wax museum.
Blog Guy, I’m afraid I really pigged out yesterday at Thanksgiving, but I understand a few extra pounds are considered attractive these days.
Happy Thanksgiving, Blog Guy!
Thanks, and the same to you and to all my readers.
Me? I’m feeling very blessed to be surrounded by my dear family and great friends.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, of course you have to say that, but specifically, what are you thankful for right now, this minute?
