Breaking News.....and kids today's headline from near Tampa, FL - "Teen Pistol Whips Mom When She Won't Buy Her A Car".  Nice.  THIS is what today's youth has become?  I have to look forward to looking at my lovely daughter, smiling, as we peruse used cars...only to hear her say, "Against the hood, Old Man. Hand over the pen and no one gets hurt."  Yeah, I'm looking forward to it.

Seriously, do we think we've gone too far as parents?  I mean, have we (just maybe) given them a little TOO much?  I mean, in what universe is it acceptable for a kid to pull a gun on a parent...and hold it to their head...because they won't cosign a loan?  I say the kid ought to be grounded.  With shackles.  No video games seems a little extreme, though.  They can keep those.  I'm sure they're not learning any bad habits from 'Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Rampage Killers' or 'Grand Theft Auto'.  Who doesn't want to steal a car every now and then....just to stay fresh?

On another I the only one getting a little tired of The Royal Wedding?  Has anyone confirmed that they are, in fact, first cousins?  If you were Kate....wouldn't you have to worry the kid's going to grow up looking like his dad?  That, too, might just be my personal opinion.  I'm sure he has a fine personality.  I'm still trying to figure out how he bagged Diana.  I'm thinking roofies.  Ooh, there's an image.  I can't....never mind. 

Last, but certainly not least this morning...Go VCU.  And thayut's all I have to say about thayut.  Yeah, that was in my best 'Forrest Gump' voice. 

Okay, time to head out.  I have real appointments to get to.  Not to mention I don't think I can watch Hoda and Kathie Lee sit here and drink at 11:00 a.m.  Disgusted?  No.  Envious?  Perhaps....

Until then..... 


  1. Hey Dave, I've always thought it ridiculous(!!!) for 5-7 year olds to be playing around with game boy and this or that, glued to it like it was the Holy Grail! Parents really don't seem to mind that they are raising zombies! I mean what the hecks going on?! I really am only saying what I see because having no kids what right do I have to say anything. But, you see it everywhere kids of all ages really just disregarding all values in general. Too sad and it's hard not to smack em upside the head! Anyway, see ya!

    Oh by the way, it's awesome you have a great relationship with your daughter and she must know how lucky she is to have such a wonderful man for a father!! Happy day!!

  2. Thanks Molly. Could not agree more...and you have every right to say so. Kids today need to learn how to communicate with more than a "C U L8R". Texting is killing the language....and I understand the granddaughter had....are you ready? 47,553 texts in one month. ONE MONTH!!! Unreal, eh? Anyway, thanks for commenting...and hope to see you soon!

  3. Uhmmmm I thought it was a new car not a used one. LMAO
