News Headline: “Rush Limbaugh: Robin Williams killed himself due to ‘leftist world view.’ ”
How does a man such as this maintain any following at all?
Sometimes we forget:
There’s a dittohead born every minute.
Beware the ides of National Water Quality Month.
T.B., a Chicago reader, writes;
“I was watching the PGA Championship and noticed that one of the commentators liked to used the word ‘err.’ I noticed it because he mispronounced it at least a half-dozen times. As you have said, ‘err’ should rhyme with ‘sir,’ not ‘air.’ ”
Pronunciations evidently weren’t the man’s forte.
Which rhymes with “sort.”
Just as “dour” rhymes with “your.”
And “sheik” rhymes with “cake.”
And as far as these pronunciations are concerned, QT will continue to inveigle.
Which rhymes with “eagle.”
Which brings us back to golf.
So these things do work out.

News Headline: “Wall Street criminals are still a protected class.”
News Headline: “Police nab bank robbery suspect.”

For a bank robbery to work, the bank has to do the robbing.
Profits have grown five times faster than jobs since 2001 at the 100 largest publicly-traded U.S. corporations.
The pay at the jobs has remained about the same.
News Headline: ” ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ sequel in doubt after Robin Williams’ death.”
Or try it this way:
Robin Williams was the Jonathan Winters of his generation.
And can higher praise be offered?
We have arrived at the 40th and final dog day of summer.
There were no reports of a man biting a dog during any of the dog days.
Dogs can rest easy now.
Or there is always the element of surprise. . . .
News Headline: “Power stuggle in Baghdad streets as Maliki is replaced but refuses to go.”
More evidence that Iraq isn’t ready for democracy. . . .
News Headline: “Almost no one is voting in the 2014 elections.”
. . . and that, well, neither, maybe, are we.
News Headline: “How to tell if you’ve got angst, ennui or weltschmertz.”
Or look at it this way:
There’s nothing like a little ennui to relieve the boredom.
News Headline: “Boehner supports airstrikes but ‘dismayed’ by Obama’s Iraq policies.”
Keeping in mind that no man is happier than a politician who is dismayed.
