- I am a little disturbed by the government being so involved in businesses. Bailouts everywhere, first with the Bush administration back in the fall. Now more bailouts with our current administration. Earlier this week, after the forced resignation of the GM CEO, I heard there will actually be government officials in Detroit to help the automakers with their business plans to help them prevent bankruptcy. Hello? Has anyone taken a look at our government - current and past? They aren't exactly the epitome of getting their shit together. I'm just not sure they should be the ones telling the executives how to run a business. If the companies go bankrupt, so be it. That's what happens when you lie, cheat, steal and make an inferior product at the expense of the consumer. I realize it may not be in the best interest of the country, or the global economy, to allow these huge corporations to go under, but I don't think the government stepping in and running the show is the best answer either. As you can see, I don't know what the answer is. I guess if I did, I could be hired and make the big bucks like all these other people...
- Our Coldplay tickets came in the mail this week! I also noticed New Kids on the Block tickets are going on sale. Do people really pay to see them?
- I have talked to MG while he and Big E are on a school field trip to an outdoor adventure camp. They have been scoping out places in the woods for their roles in the Underground Railroad re-enactment. I was informed there is "no way" I would do the zip line because of how high it is. I don't like heights. I don't mind as long as I am in something - building, plane, etc. Anytime my feet are dangling or I feel like I could fall, I about faint. The big excitement was one of the kids in MG and Big E's cabin had a bloody nose episode. It was so bad he had to be rushed to the hospital. MG said he had not ever seen so much blood, which is saying something since he as watched me birth our three kids. Thankfully, the other cabin chaperone is the asst. principal of Sous Chef's school. His daughter is at the camp, too. He knew exactly what to do in such a situation. The kid eventually made it back to camp and has some meds to help his nose. Apparently nosebleeds for this little guy are fairly common, but this one was particularly unstoppable. I am surprised my husband didn't pass out, bump his head and also need to be rushed off to the ER.
