Open Thread Monday

I'm late for work and I'm too tired to say anything. Have at it, people! What's in your wallet, er, I mean what's on your mind?

    Working away, watching my colleagues munch on Cuban pastelitos..... they're getting used to the taste and becoming ever more acquainted with guayaba y queso.

    In general the press seems to be burying bad things about Zelaya in Honduras. The last thing buried was his supporters anti-Jewish remarks.

    The Miami Herald still has it there but has shifted the story aside

  • I was also late for work this morning. Must be the classic post-football-weekend "hangover".

    9:00am? Banker's hours, George?

  • Can't be late; I teach at 8am. Post football hangover Robert? Try watching the game, the recap, and waking up at 6 and expected to be coherent.

    Nothing in my wallet, but a lot in my mind. LOL. I was happy my Dodgers FINALLY clinched the division, and USC won Saturday!

    Today's Miami Herald front-page headline:

    "Travel between U.S. and Cuba flourishing"

    The Herald's glee is palpable. They LOVE this sort of headline. No, I didn't read the article. Not interested in the Herald's spin on anything I understand and feel far better than it ever could. The Herald remains bound and determined to have the last laugh at our expense. It's so fixated on doing so that it couldn't hide it if it tried.

    Still, I'm long past being surprised or shocked by the Herald, and I'm making strides at being past getting upset by it. It's really like being upset that a cobra is, indeed, poisonous. What still upsets me, big time, is that there are any Cubans or Cuban-Americans still enabling the Herald in some way.

  • Other than Obummer's hand, there's not much else in my wallet. I get to skip work today, I'm baby-sitting my 6-month-old as my wife is with her mother, who's getting operated on today.

  • I'd like to mention that the WORLD CHAMPION PHILLIES are in the playoffs.

    That is all. :-D
