Out With The Old

Wouldn't it be great if you could look into a crystal ball and see the world being cleaned up? Talk about wishful thinking!

The next couple of nights television will be filled with reviews of the year past. I wonder if anyone will try to look into the future!

Will we get out of Iraq as scheduled? They have said in no uncertain terms it is not negotiable! Will we make progress in Afghanistan and Pakistan or are more of our soldiers going to lose their lives in  what looks more and more like a lost cause?

What will Israel do about Iran's nuclear program? What will Britain do about being a haven for terrorists?

So many questions. Will the Republicans do anything worthwhile with the opportunity given them? I have severe doubts. Same old leadership. Groan.

Then there is the absurd. Will Obama come up with a real birth certificate? While he's at it he could provide his transcripts from Columbia and Harvard. I'd like to know just how much of a scholar he really is!

Will we finally get tired enough of Sarah Palin and Christine O'Donnell for them to disappear from the media? That can go for a few dozen celebrities too!

Will NoLabels or The Modern Whigs  come to the fore as a viable third party?

Well, there you have it. Some of what I'll be watching. I'll keep most of my predictions to myself. I'm too likely to be wrong.  I hope.

Oh, last but certainly not least! Will Brett Favre finally retire?

And, will anyone ever learn how to pronounce his name!?! Favre just CAN'T be Fahr-ve, can it?

Your concerns are mine too, Mari. I am ready for some peace and quiet. I am also ready for the media to settle down. They dream up situations for us to stew about. Without their assistance, much of this "much to do" would be nothing at all.
