Okay, I'll admit it. I'm

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm in a bit of a writing funk lately. I practically had to rake my eyes out to come up with a column last night, so have a little pity people. Hey, that would be a cool movie, "Attack of the Pity People." It would be a two hour movie consisting of a crowd of empathetic people pawing at their victims, profusely apologizing for their agonizing state in life. "Ohhhh, I'm so sorry about your cat dying. Is there anything I can do to relieve your suffering? Awwwww. Awwwwww." *shudder* What a terrifying idea.
Let's go to the news, or at least news of the weird. Here's something that will make you think twice about library dues: "Woman Jailed Over Unreturned Library Books." Apparently, a 24 year old woman with $120 in library late book fees, was jailed in Tamaqua, Penn. "So, what are you in for? Murder? Robbery?" "Nah, they got me on late charges. I thought I was one step ahead of them, but after a two hour high speed chase and shootout, they got me."
I leave for Nashville tomorrow for work. I guess I should be excited or something, but knowing that I'm going anywhere for work just kind of deflates me. I'm sure that's not the case for everyone, particularly astronauts. "Hey, Neil Armstrong. I hear you're going to be the first man to walk on the moon!" "Yeah, but it's for work. It would be different if I was doing it, you know, as a vacation thing, but every time I look back at the small disc of earth, I'm just going to be reminded about how much I hate my job."
That's it for now.
