This weekend started off slowly and quietly, until I began to read the Advocate on line and discovered that FINALLY a certain poster has been banned--BIG J is nowhere to be found. So to use one of my favorite song, "down, down, down in a ring of fire" the little letter is gone from the site.
To celebrate this fact, I suggest that readers all go to the Town Hall meeting with a name tag decorated with miniature ropes and soccer balls. You know he was afraid of being hanged by soccer Moms, so it would be only appropriate to acknowlege him in this fashion. If you really want to finish off the look, you could also wear a big western hat and serape (much like Clint Eastwood in his spaghetti westerns.) A sign or two with the slogan, "High 'Em High" would not be out of place.
There are still some posters on the Advocate who are a plague on the intellectual, so the fight against this "brain drain" isn't over by any means. But as I sign off, the song has changed to, "Another one bites the dust, uh, uh." Funny how the soundtrack to my life always comes up with a ditty or two for the occassion.
