Things I Know

  • President Obama finally released his long-form birth certificate.  I never thought he wasn’’t born in Hawaii.  I believed he wasn’’t born at all.  But seriously, the President has nobody to blame but himself for keeping this non-issue alive for the last three years.

  • I know it’’s an odd notion, but I believe parts that must be replaced during the useful life of any machine ought to be reasonably easy to replace.  The most recent thing I encountered that doesn’’t meet that standard is the belt on my family’’s upright vacuum cleaner.  It’’s not easy to replace; it’’s barely possible to replace.

  • As is my habit, I went to the NY International Auto Show last Friday.   I didn’’t want anything I could afford and I couldn’’t afford anything I wanted. 

  • When I claim, as I do from time to time, that I know the worst joke in the world, not everyone asks me to tell it, but nobody I’’ve known for more than a few minutes argues that I can’’t possibly.
