Excuses, excuses

Meanwhile, in news of the politically bizarre, former White House policy advisor Claude Allen, admits that Hurricane Katrina broke his brain. Gloom humour aside, this admission certainly could explain many things...

He also got off with an awful light sentence, reinforcing the idea that political insiders are special people who deserve consideration. No wonder they all think they're above the law.

Hat tip to Gentilly Girl.

Thursday evening we had a severe thunder storm. The urge to steal was trememdous but I was able to resist it. :-)

Yes, Dadvocate, after the severe storm last night in Athens, most of the intersection lights were out, trees were down, and shops were closed. I was tempted to do a little thieving, what with the oppressive darkness urging me on, but I decided to re-read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban instead. So I guess I READ about crime, which could be just as bad.

I've never thought I was cut out for politics since I lost the election for class president in the 4th grade. It was crushing.

Besides, I don't believe I could think up such a ridiculous excuse as Katrina Stress Syndrome to rationalize my criminal acts.
