NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We present a commentary of human life from a man with a fifteen year old mind who is trapped in a 79 year old body.

My greatest surprise at being 79 is the continued presence of poverty in America and the indifference of so many people to those who are poor.

I wonder what would be the greatest surprise to a Cro-Magnon if he found himself in the modern world.

I wonder why when men pee it is a public event but when they shit it is private.

I am shocked at the hate that has erupted over the issue of extending health care to all Americans. It is particularly disappointing when it comes from the elderly who have health insurance.

Among my mysteries of life is what did people who text message all day long do prior to the cell phone.

Tiny children ape the behavior of their older siblings more often than of parents.

We measure height and weight, how about butt size?

Obama supporters only see his virtues. Alas, all humans have flaws.

What ever happened to Rudy Giuliani? Has he given up trying to be God?

I like Michelle Obama. Unfortunately, she never will be an Eleanor Roosevelt. Mrs. Roosevelt was concerned about working people and the poor and was always on the scene of strikes or the oppression of poor people. She definitely was not into organic gardening.

There is no more lonely locale than a bagel shop at 10:30 a.m.

I do not understand why parents purchase electric cars for children. Let them use their damn feet and get some exercise!

The sexuality of a woman can be measured by the number of male heads that turn when she walks by.

At what point in September do shorts get replaced by long pants?

I miss the Irish politicians who used to run the Democratic power. Maybe, they never went to Harvard, but they knew how to get a law passed.

I never drive right up to the fender of another car. I always leave space for backing up.
