Well, Amigos, The Red Man is overwhelmed with current events tonight.  I’m afraid the world is too much with us, to borrow a phrase from the Peep Poet William Wordsworth who clearly understood the Big Picture when he said… in 1807…

The world is too much with us, late and soon, getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;

     Little we see in Nature that is ours; we have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!.

First of all, we have a new Pope.  White smoke, new Pope.  Pope Francis is not from Assisi, but he is from Argentina.  Of course, The Red Man has been eagerly awaiting the white smoke for days and lo and behold I am undone by the new Pope’s anti-gay bullying.  Come on, Papal Peep.  Do you really think same-sex marriage is the work of the Devil and that having two daddies or two mommies discriminates against children?  I mean, I don’t wanna talk about Peeps who live in  glass houses here, but some new Peep Pope I know lives in one he inherited.   We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon..

On a local news note, former Peep-in-Chief George H. W. Bush made a visit this week to his Presidential Library at Texas A & M University  which is just forty miles north of Worsham Street.  Unfortunately, a Flash Mob of a shitload of Texas Aggies broke out in a surprise dance called the Bushwhacked Boogie for PIC Bush who appeared frightened until his granddaughter Jenna leaned down to him and said That’s a flash mob, Grandpa.  Oops.  Close call.  Late and soon – or sooner or later.

Approval ratings for Today host Matt Lauer and current Peep-in-Chief Obama are sinking as fast as a Carnival Cruise ship.  Matt Lauer has managed to piss off his viewing audience in tandem with PIC Obama who continues to irritate the Republicans and now angers an entire country.  Sequester, Sequester, let John Boehner come over.  Please.  Let anybody come over who has sense. We lay waste our powers.

And speaking of Carnival Cruise ships, you gotta love the names they come up with.  Carnival Dream is a nightmare and Carnival Triumph didn’t.

And finally for my Sports Fans in cyberspace, household name wide receiver Wes Welker leaves the New England Patriots to join Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos for $12 million over the next two years.  Getting and spending, no doubt.

To sum it up, The Red Man is on overload for news this week as opposed to Spike who went with the old woman Slow to her favorite place in Grimes County and had a rude awakening.

I wonder if he’s a German Shepherd – Nah. Not so much.
