MAYBE I’M AMAZED
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that just when you think there won’t be any more ways to attack and assail the character of Jackie Musto Carroll another one emerges. Let’s see we had the lady on the rocker, the guy in the factory, the basketball coach and some I forgot about. What’s next, 2 nuns who were liberated from Mars and live in a duplex in Nanticoke cooking up some meth? We get the point already. But Bob Harper is raking in the dough God bless him.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that this Justin Bieber guy is hit with a paternity suit and the trollop says she’s having his baby after only having sex for 30 seconds backstage. I know he’s 30 and all but his boys must swim faster than Mark Spitz in his prime. And c’mon even if its true, no guy wants to hear about his early arrival in these matters.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that we pay so much attention to this Kim Kardashian wedding and divorce to this basketball player. You see their wedding picture, they looked like Lurch and Wednesday from the Addams Family.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the candidates running for County Council are doing everything they can to get a foothold. It’s a lot like old fashioned campaigning. Face to face. You have to admire the determination of most of them running.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……at how well both Jennifer Rogers and Molly Hanlon Mirabito do in their public appearances on and off the media. Talk about commanding a room.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that I found this cool radio station out of Toronto called AM 740, ZOOMER RADIO. Father Thom Carten told me about it a long time ago but I just got around to checking it out. They have commercials for a business in a town in Ontario province called Saint Catherine’s. When I would rebel against my parents which wasn’t often, I threatened to run away to Canada and St. Catherine’s. I was a strange kid. Just looked it up on the map and picked it out. But it stopped my parents cold every time. “Canada?” they’d say.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that in the Wilkes Barre Mayoral debate, when Lisa Cope was talking about the various departments in the Police unit she’d change, Leighton asked her which departments she’d make changes in. She couldn’t say.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that every time I see Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland in a movie, I just can’t help but smile and check it out.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Newt Gingrich seems to be slowly moving up in the polls. He’d make an interesting addition on the national ticket.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……and thrilled that Stopay Candies in Plains is not giving it up after their business was devastated by the fall flood. When they reopen, you should check out their sweet treats.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that a local Council member and business owner Tony Thomas would open himself up to such controversy by allegedly not paying a supply bill. The owner of Harry’s Market which supplied food to the downtown eatery now closed is suing Thomas for about $14,000 grand. If this gets to court, this will be interesting. I know small businesses struggle but I was always told you pay yourself last and pay your vendors first.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….the County GOP is spending over $300,000 for a District Attorney’s seat. Can you imagine if the party backers spread that money around in the primary to help Dick Hughes get a double nomination and perhaps get Mayor Jim Haggerty and Attorney Joe Saporito on the fall ballot? I don’t know if its misdirected anger, passion or strategy but it is misdirected nonetheless.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..not so much that St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa retired. He came within 1 strike twice of losing the World Series. The games were nail biters. He had that unique disciple to have the good sense to go out on top.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Wilkes Barre city Republicans can’t focus in on one Council seat to win. Virgil Argenta has a ton of signs in the Northend but he and the other candidates running need some votes in this General Election.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that former County Commissioner Ed Brominski is moving at a breakneck pace to win a nod on the County Council. He is everywhere in this campaign and welcomed heartily for his experience and common sense.
