What a way to start my day!
I awakened looking forward to writing my blog, reading the NYT, listening to WPR, and watching Amy Goodman when, wham! Right between the eyes: "Research Finds Firstborns Gain The Higher I.Q." As the third child in my family, I considered going back to bed but opted to read on. Turns out Darwin (rejected by Republicans but still relevant) was fifth of six and Descartes, like me, third. So, there is hope.
And the study reveals that sometimes the third child develops some talent to gain love from parents: "Younger siblings often develop other skills, like acting (nope), social charm (nope), a good curveball (nope) mastery of the electric bass(are you kidding?)."
If you don't hear from me until Bob Fest, I will be working on my curveball, taking guitar lessons and improving my social skills.
And, speaking of social skills, Dick Cheney is out of the bunker again. This time to inform us that he is neither executive branch nor legislative. No siree. He is both and a megalomaniac to boot.
Ron Kind's picture in NYT business section with Republican Tom Petri was the next shock. Ron wants to cut farm subsidies. He may have a good idea but he is playing with the big boys who have money and votes. Note to Ron: Get set for a fast one aimed at your chin. Second note to Ron: You better develop support for this idea in Wisconsin--fast.
Don't forget to pre-register for Bob Fest.
