Thoughts While Shaving

NFL results from Thursday night play: Patriots 19 – Tampa Bay Bucs 14.

Local high school football action tonight, Whiteville at West Bladen and Fairmont at East Bladen.  Gametime for both 7 PM.  One of my favorite times of the week sharing coaching tips with anyone seated nearby in the stands, from someone with zero coaching experience. Sometimes I just listen to other uninformed fans.  When I need to share more or tap into a new information source, I stand along the fence.  I pay my $6 and am entitled to my perspective.

Pre-game activities, I am told, will begin at 6:30 PM prior to the East Bladen game.

Bryan Martin, E-town native, now a member of U.S. Congressman Walter Jones staff in DC, shared another bipartisan, inside DC type news source.  A team of senior lobbyist share insight into such issues as Healthcare, Immigration and more.  Among the latest is ‘Navigating The New Gilden Age,  Why Change Is Coming Again’, all produced by Mehlman Castognetti, Rosen & Thomas.  Looking forward to the weekend and a time to check it out, courtesy of Mr. Martin, longtime BladenOnline supporter.

Weather should not be a problem for whatever you have planned for today, a slight chance of rainfall for the weekend, like 20% to 30% with a higher probability if you are in an area of a thunderstorm.

The NC Legislature is back in session, scarry!

Did you see where a Pennsylvania US Congressman, voted against abortion, while he was attempting to convince his mistress to have one?  Just when you think you have heard it all, more news, from DC and NC.

“Politics, noun.  A strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles.  The conduct of public affairs for private advantage.”  Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary

I was recently on a tour of Latin America, and the only regret I have was that I didn’t study Latin harder in school so I could converse with those people.  Dan Quayle

The attractive lady whom I had only recently been introduced to dropped into my lap….I chose not to dump her off.  —-Former Senator and presidential candidate Gary Hart, on his encounter with Donna Rice.
