This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Oh, yea.

So the new Communications Director got on the phone with a reported and went absolutely 7th grade and was shocked when he reporter wrote a column and quoted him on what he said including  calling someone at the WH a c**k s****r.

Um, maybe he should have known before taking the job that when the media is out to get you, there is no such thing as off the record and if you actually thought that was not going to show up in the media, you probably shouldn't be communications director - or won't be for long.

But what actually cracked me up was how outraged and offended the media was at the term c**k s****r.

So calling my good buddy, Mr. Peabody:

and Mr. Peabody with the WAYBAC machine will take us back twenty years to the Clinton WH where President Bill Clinton is discovered to have been getting BJ's and other sexual favors from a young intern.

Thank you Mr. Peabody, take me home now.

Shower, okay, ready to finish.  Because feeling dirty and needing a shower is exactly how the late 90's felt.

The point is; the media defended a prez getting BJ's while working, said it was nobody's business, and didn't even consider it sexual harassment for the prez to 'press the flesh' with a young intern.

So young people hoping to be reporters one day in the future, get out your pen and paper and write this down.   If you are a democrat president who supports abortion, having sex with a young intern working for you is okay.  If you are the head of a major news network that is reported to be conservative and you hug an employee for what is deemed too long by that employee, you lose your job.  And if you say c*************r, well that is tacky - getting one from an intern or a reporter doing that for a story is okay, saying the word is wrong.

Got it?
