The Gadfly's End Of The Week Musings
Dirty Business: The lawn care guys just left; 38 large bags of leaves retrieved from the confines of Casa McCarville. Tell me again why I love trees....
End Of The Week
By Mike McCarville
Color Me Green: On Saturday, March 19th, I'll join my radio pal Dink Bernardy to once again (my 14th year) announce the annual St. Patrick's Day parade in downtown Oklahoma City.
Tea Party Sympathizer: I find that my support is not about the color of Barack Obama's skin, but the color of money...mine, that I'd like to keep.
Connected: We're all wired into Facebook and Twitter today. Follow us at either, or both, by clicking on the icons on the right side of the page.
Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time: Tax adviser Sue Rogers advises that if I hadn't sold the Prudential stock last year that I bought in 1974-75, I wouldn't owe any federal taxes. Looks like Uncle may make more on the deal than I did. Damnation.
Condolences: Friend Reid Mullins of KTOK lost his father this week; Mr. Mullins was an exceptional person, a pillar of his church and community, admired by family and friends, me included. Rest in peace, sir.
Unseemly: The prude in me recoils at the thought of Unwed Pregnancy-Begets-Stardom as in the case of Bristol Palin who, with her mother, will be in Oklahoma City soon to speak at meetings of faith-based organizations. What, other than becoming pregnant out of wedlock, elevates this young person to the status of worth listening to? Celebrity built on immoral behavior leaves me cold.
Life Could Be Better: Cracker Barrel could be closer than I-35 and Northeast 122nd or on I-40 in Shawnee.
