F! That hurts. I bit my wip. (wait for it…now laugh) November 4, 2008 is obviously a very important day in America’s history, your history and his story. I, for one, am excited, (notice the dual use of my misspelled title), for the next four, and perhaps eight years. Now, I’m sure about 58,343,671 of you disagree, but the simple truth is that Barack Obama may be the most significant President of the United States any of us living now will experience. I’m not saying that because I’m a diehard democrat, nor am I a huge supporter of the Obama campaign. I voted for him based on two principles: 1. He seems like an honest, intelligent and decent human being. 2. McCain is old. No, in all seriousness…I think that McCain could have made a great President. Regardless, this is the first time I have ever been excited about a Presidential Election. I have only had the chance to live…

That’s a weird word. One that I haven’t spelled, or typed, in a long time. Cover. Tangent = complete. In last month’s issue of Playboy, one of the print materials I actually read, I learned something interesting.* I actually learned quite a bit. More than the Video Professor, (who commands, in a gentle manner, night-time-tv watchers to “try my product”), could ever teach me on one CD. I read a very interesting article, well, more of an interview [of], about Daniel Craig. He’s definitely going to become one of my favorite actors now. Just so you know, I read the entire six-page spread about him and not one of the pages I looked at in this sitting required I turn the magazine sideways. Three did.
The three-word, open-ended answer to almost any question…and we all use it: I don’t know. Append “yet” post the “w” a comma and a space, and that answer is much more accurate. I don’t know, yet. The mind is a powerful thing and we’re capable of self-teaching so much more than we try. Slide between the covers of an open book and you’ll learn so much you never knew existed. I, for one, learned of this magical thing called page two. I never used to like reading, but then again, the only reading I knew about was all required topics – not necessarily something I would have liked to read. Don’t get caught using those three words. Read. It’s good for you.
