These days this oleunemployedcontructionworker spends alot of time trying to curtail his expenses on a month to month basis, only to save up for another On The Road adventure to keep you Counters entertained.
Well one of the things I have curtailed has been the luxury of having a boob-tube in the ole Taj Mahal. Yeah, it was either internet or cable and, thankfully for all ya'll, I chose cellular internet so I can post a blog from pretty much anywhere in these good ole United States.
Now, having said that, I still am plugged in to the world and while I may choose not to comment on it, I have a definitive grasp on what is going on in the World in which we live.
I mean, I pay attention, the Iranian elections, Michelle Obama's trip to London, the Auto Exec's flights to Congress, (is there a difference there?), the Madoff Sentence, and Lynndie England's ordeal. I mean, I have some knowledge of what is going on out there, thanks to these ubiquitous tubes.

'How about a Gorgeous Blonde?'
So Farrah Fawcett is talking to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates and St. Peter mentioned that Farrah Fawcett so defined the 80's and what did she need?
'Just keep the children safe.'
So Michael Jackson is talking to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates and St. Peter mentioned that Michael Jackson had done so much for the music industry and what did he need?
'I really need a pitchman.'
So Billy Mays is talking to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates and St. Peter mentioned that Billy Mays was instrumental in making "As Seen On TV" so respectable, what did he need?
'I really need an investigator to help me look into Michael Jackson's past.'
So Karl Malden is talking to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates and St. Peter mentioned what a great role he played in Streetcar Named Desire and what did he need?
'Well, I really could use some comedic relief from this Michael Jackson investigation.'
So Fred Travalena was talking to St. Peter.....
And it is having this sick sense of humor that allows us to
