MAYBE I’M AMAZEDMAYBE I’M AMAZED………that people who went to the fireworks at Kirby Park on Wednesday night loutishly pulled onto the grounds on the River Common. County officials are peeved and they should be. The grounds are their responsibility. You would think that the city of Wilkes Barre would have had someone stationed there to deter the parkers who cruised right in from Union Street. Wilkes Barre meter maids are happy to ticket just about anyone including commuter college students but didn’t touch these people. The County has a myriad of places to park but as usual people took the path of least resistance. And with the huge number of slobs who live in this area, I bet there was a lot of garbage to clean up on Thursday morning.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that people in Northeastern Pennsylvania never heard of the word “saw”. Every person I saw (get it) on TV this week as an eyewitness said, “I seen them pulling the body” or “I seen him just last night”. The word saw used in the context, “I saw them pulling the body” or “I saw him just last night is a verb. The tool, “saw” (the tool that cuts wood) is a noun which is a thing. I’m not the king of grammar but could at least one TV reporter find someone who can speak English. And they bitch about the illegals! Jesus.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……at the sheer hatred so many people in our area have for the Vice President. He was a home town boy who made good but the vitriol I heard on talk radio was obscene with one dunderhead on WILK questioning Biden’s behavior after his wife and kids died in a 1973 auto accident. But we are the Valley with the heart, right?
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that Wilkes Barre Mayor Tom Leighton can be interviewed by a reporter and play with a knife he cuts fruit with. If Tom McGroarty did that, someone would put him before a psych evaluation. I like the Mayor personally, but is he just trying to antagonize people for sport? Show them your sunny side sir.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………that there are serious people in the media who are comparing Nathan’s Hot Dog eating champ Joey Chestnut’s 6 titles at Coney Island to Michael Jordan’s 6 NBA titles. I love a Nathan’s dog most likely more than the next guy but c’mon.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………that the sport of dueling is legal in Paraguay as long as both parties involved are blood donors.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the Washington Nationals have 3 players starting on the All Star Team. And equally amazing, my Indians are in second in their division and my Pirates are leading their division by more than a game!!!
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that road maps are becoming a thing of the past with the popularity of GPS systems. It all started with MapQuest and has now all but eliminated the need for a map. They were a real bitch to fold too. Only show offs used to fold them the correct way.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that after a world class smack down for a Senate seat in Connecticut Linda McMahon is going to try again. This time she is going after Democrat Richard Blumenthal. The seat was held by that world class wiener/whiner and supporter of John McCain in 2008 Senator Joe Lieberman. Yeah he was a great Democrat! Best of luck to the lady. It would be sweet justice to see her take over for the waffle king of New England. See, I bet you’re amazed I don’t like all Democrats!
