Every time I try to take a break, they draaag me back in!
While I had thought I might be able to ignore the world for a few days, there is no getting away from my sense of duty to blow the whistle when I see dereliction in the press -- especially when it involves non-reporting of major events. In what I hope is just another amazing coincidence, it seems that every time I visit Illinois on one of these trips, I learn about shocking developments that are being systematically ignored by the MSM. Last year it was Obama's battle with lung cancer.
This year, I am sorry to have to report that it involves an outbreak of homosexuality among major world leaders. We already knew about Barack Obama (especially his involvement in a gay murder scandal), but this time, the shocking news involves George W. Bush!
And if you think that's bad, it turns out that the reason super-macho Humphrey Bogart was such a womanizer was this:
Screen legend Humphrey Bogart secretly feared he was a homosexual -- and it drove him to bed his Casablanca leading lady Ingrid Bergman and 999 other beauties....Hmmm... While normally I might be inclined to dismiss this as a product of someone's hyperactive imagination, there's something awfully suspicious about his total number of female conquests being exactly 1000. Why would Bogart have stopped there unless he had set it as some sort of goal?
You can't be too careful.
This "I take a break, only to learn that huge news is being ignored!" thing is getting to be a pattern.
But if I had stayed home and continued with my usual pattern of only getting my news from online sources, I'd have been in a clueless state of denial.
There's no taking a break from reality.
