HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

Bush and Pelosi

The president objected to the fact that Nancy Pelosi, as Speaker of the House of Representatives, visited Syria, and chatted with President Assad, and then went on to Saudi Arabia.  As far as Syria is concerned, Bush claims that it supports terrorism.  He offers no evidence, of course.  If he says so, we are expected to believe it.

Furthermore, Bush is so narrow minded that he believes in talking only to friends, not to folks he considers enemies.  A sure way for the folks of the world continually to be at logger heads.


A Drugged America

Folks who complain that too many young folks in America experiment with drugs should turn on their TV sets. There they will learn that there are pills that will keep your legs from being restless, pills that will put you and keep you asleep, pills that will help men piss, etc., etc.

Don’t blame the kids, folks, they are only imitating adults!


A Hungry America

There are several intersections in our fair city of Cambridge where a man or a woman stands with a sign indicating that he or she is homeless and hungry.  My Better Half always has her hand in her purse as we approach these places.  Question!  What kind of society is this?  Are we so enamored of capitalism that we do not take care of our own - because it is against our principles?


The Returned British Marines

Am I the only one who considers it passing strange that the British Royal Marines released by Iran have to have scripts to read from back home, as they speak of their ordeal?  Who wrote the scripts?  Why can they not speak without them?


“The Axis of Evil”

I am always delighted at demonstrations of ingenuity.  I hope you all have had the opportunity to see “The Axis of Evil” comedy troupe on the Comedy Central channel.  Four stand up comedians.  Example: The first of the group explains that he is from New Jersey.  Enough to condemn him you say?  Please!  He explains his father is of Palestinian descent and his mother of Italian.

What is wildly funny is when he questions the restrictions on what one can include in carry on luggage as one goes through the security check on the way to an airplane gate.  You know, no little bottles of shampoo, etc., etc. He, then, asks, “Don’t you think that no one would notice if a fellow at his seat is mixing various bottles together, preparing an explosive mixture?”
