MAYBE I’M AMAZED
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that more than 200 people showed up for that forum the other night at Wilkes College. That shows there is citizen interest in this election.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……at the size of this upcoming Election Day ballot. Voters should really study hard and figure out who they are going to support.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that in talking to Council candidate Edd Brominski I see that he most likely has forgotten more about county government than the people who have been studying this deal now for over a few years.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Bob Cordaro pulled a legal rabbit out of his hat and at least got his Halloween sentencing continued.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……..that up until last night, this World Series might have been remembered for the bad phone line to the Cardinal bullpen than anything else. Why not just run one of the players down to the dugout and pass the message the old fashioned way, face to face, pre Alexander Graham Bell.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that the young Republicans of Luzerne County, those on and off the reservation should know better than to explain a mini controversy to WILK’s Steve Corbett. He’ll ask the questions they should have asked themselves before they picked up the phone.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that the people at Wilkes College only had one microphone for the big Forum the other night. Wilkes has a college TV station and various auditoriums. Plus they have a Communications program. They couldn’t spare a microphone?
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that the guy who won 4 million smackers at the Anthracite Newsstand was back the next day buying more lottery tickets. Really? Don’t tell me gambling can’t be addictive.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Rick Perry who fashions himself after Ronald Reagan (and what Republican doesn’t) decided to step away from the debates because of poor performance. We knew The Gipper and Rick Perry is no Ronald Reagan. Just what we need, another Texas Governor as President with a low IQ. George Bush’s saving grace was that he loved baseball.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski. Posed with adult film star Bibi Jones posting multiple pictures on Twitter posing. The short blond was sporting Gronkowski's Patriots jersey in the images and the tight end was shirtless in one of them. There is nothing sexier than a good looking woman wearing a football jersey. (Especially if it’s yours!) But after all the Charlie Sheen garbage earlier in the year with Bree Olson, you have to ask, “What was this guy thinking”?
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that people are questioning the actions of the Wilkes Barre Police when a person was wielding a gun (albeit a pellet gun) and aiming it at them. My theory is the guy wanted to do one of those “cop by suicide” deals you see on Law and Order. When a guy points a gun at you and he does not desist after being told to, he gets what he gets. That said, I saw his family on TV recounting his mental health issues and I feel for them. I just wonder who is going to foot the health care bill for this guy because I’ll bet my ass he doesn’t have Blue Cross or Geisenger PPO.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the longer I live, the more I appreciate the sport of baseball. In Game 6 of the World Series, the Cardinals were one strike away from elimination. Both teams battled back in a seesaw of leads in the game. The third baseman, David Freese, who made a crucial error redeemed himself and tied it once. Then in the 11th hit a home run to win it 10-9 and bring it to Game 7. To those who say baseball takes too much time, I say baseball is timeless in the most classical sense. On to Game 7 later tonight! And that my friends is truly amazing!
