A Couple of Attention Grabbers
|I thought I’d share a couple of items that have caught my attention that last couple of days.|
First up is a news item from Reuters: Iran demands UN Security Council condemn bomb attack.
Really? Is this the same Iran that in the past has supported the taking of hostages for political gain? Was that not terrorism? Is this the same Iran that has supported similar suicide type bombings in Israeland other countries for years? Was that not terrorism?
Hey Iran, did you support action from the UN Security Council then?
Isn’t it a little disingenuous for Iran to now call on the international community to condemn terrorism when they themselves have been guilty of the same type of behavior for years?
I'm just askin...
Last night I was watching the television when a commercial came on selling phone cards to call India and the Philippines. You know, even at a penny a minute it is too expensive. I call those countries every week and don’t pay anything.
It’s called customer service for Dell, Sprint, or any number of other companies from the U.S. intent on saving a few coins by outsourcing their customer service.
My beloved Angels from Anaheim are about to be eliminated in the ALCS by the Yankees. Last night when they were down 3-0 I told my wife it was over. Chelle tried to cheer me up by reminding me of the comeback of the prior night.
One thing you learn if you are an Angels fan. They are going to find a way to lose. I know they won the World Series a few years back, but that was a fluke. There are not many teams in baseball as stricken with bad luck as these guys.
Finally, I first saw this over at James’ Blog, but I suspect he pulled it from the Mexico City News. It seems that Mexico City wants to put their cops on a diet. Here’s the news story complete with the admonition of the city's Public Safety deputy secretary for citizen participation [that’s a title, isn’t it?] to eat more vegetables.
Doesn’t she know that every taco comes with onion, cilantro, salsa, and usually avocado and a radish? Last time I checked, those were some pretty tasty vegetables.
