Well, ladies and gentlemen, the news never takes the holiday off, so, it is against my better judgement that I report to you live from Hershey Lodge in beautiful Hershey,PA and present this post-Silver Anniversary (No.26) edition of Steve's Blog.
WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN...AND KEEP WALKING...AND DON'T COME BACK!
The tribe has spoken, Egyptian President Morsi has been kicked out by the Military. And, honestly, who can blame them? The economy over there stinks, tourism (a key industry) is down, he wants the Egyptians to take radical Islam more seriously,they should have remembered the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it!" At least he didn't change his title from President to Pharoah, I remember the last time they had one of those...Oy! I just hope the Egyptian people choose their next leader a BIT more wisely!
DID VLADIMIR READ MY BLOG?
I don't know whether it's because he read my Open Letter to the Russian People or because he's just a smart guy, but Russian President Vladimir Putin would only grant Edward Snowbum...I mean, SNOWDEN, citizenship IF he ceased his anti-American, make that, anti-LOGICAL HUMAN BEINGS activity. Well played, Comrade Putin!
And now, it's time for a new feature I like to call...
KNUCKLEHEADS IN THE NEWS!
Here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, they're famous for town names like Intercourse and Blue Ball,but Lancaster County took that to somewhat oderifierous extremes when they unintentionally changed the spelling of the town of Ephrata to (Wait for it, wait for it) EPHARTA! PennDOT (the Department of Transportation) DID change it before they got into any more deep doo-doo! (Sorry, couldn't resist!)
Well, that's enough Number 2 from me, I'll just close this, and let you go back to having the Happiest of Fourth of Julies, and remember all those brave folks who gave their lives so we could live ours in freedom.
See you on the 6th!
