OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWell I skipped yesterday because of world cup soccer Colombia won England lost. Of course everybody was at our house to watch on the big screen and the Ruby’s son John was leaving for vacation in Argentina. So by the time Jeff got around to his computer I was taking my afternoon nap and couldn’t be bothered. You have no idea how big a thing World Cup Soccer is outside the US. The national pride is amazing you don’t see that at a lot of sporting events in the US although it has improved some since 9/11. A shame it took something like that to get people to become more patriotic. Hey what’s going on with all these school shootings they say there’s one every 78 days or something. I don’t understand Jeff says when he was growing up you could go to any hardware or sporting goods store and buy a rifle or shotgun like you were buying clothes. But unless you were Al Capone or some other Mafia person you didn’t run around shooting people every time they upset you. I think it has a lot to do with celebrity status everybody is looking for their 15 min of fame. They watch the news, which you couldn’t do a lot of when Jeff was growing up, and they see killers getting all the attention. So being that they are already a little balanced the think why not me. Now anti gun advocates are going to get upset with me but there was more access to guns 50 years ago then there is today. Granted the guns are more powerful and I really don’t see the need for thirty round magazines and gun that fire 700 rounds a minute be available to the general public unless they plan to start a revolution. Sometimes a wonder if where children are concerned if society has become too lenient or maybe it’s that fact that children get ignored more now a days as we try to claim our piece of the dream. Well I’ve depressed myself enough talking about you humans and you r weird behaviors so this is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.
