The first part will be a be kind to MR section. Now for those of you who have managed to get this far after reading the first sentence I will explain or else everyone from Mildly to Rocky will be writing an anti Bogo blog or having me take a nice observational vacation at Pembroke Hospital. Two points on MR.
MR had a post a few weeks ago that took to task - somewhat - her exclusion from the Green Committee. Appears it was just an oversight (maybe) and explanations were given. From what I could fathom it all came down to available slots. Just open up another slot. Simple solution. Is there any limit to the number of committee members? If so it can be tweaked.
Point two is her opposition to the anti Cape Wind faction. I know there is a mountain of facts being tossed around from both sides but I’d like to see in built. If a Kennedy is against it must be a good idea. There are certainly posters more versed in this issue on or who read this site.
A very bad week for CPA since, IMO, the posts critical of the BOS for present and past sins and the negativity towards former dinosaurs only isolated the CPA further from those whose blessing would be nice. Frustrating that some could not temper their criticism to the CPA and not to the laundry list of the same old regarding the BOS. As far as I know the CPA is still going forward.
Some of the humor expressed this week was quite enjoyable. Always a bright spot to sit down and read a thesaurus post or a thou shall.
The economy continues to slide or tumble or just plain collapse. The banking situation will deteriorate even further as the bad paper figure could well be 50 Trillion dollars. I got killed on CitiGroup ( C ) stock expecting a bump up.
The plane crash or semi controlled landing was the big news story last week. Any landing is a good landing. My wife and I originally moved to Middleboro for two reasons: The housing was cheap and the airport we flew out of was located here. When we married I had a plane - a Piper Tri-Pacer (AKA - The Flying Brick) that we soon sold as it was a very expensive toy. I had a Citabria before I met my wife since I was interested in aerobatic flying and that was the plane of choice for some but I lost interest in it. My wife took up flying after we met and she has quite a collection of certifications - Commercial, Instrument, Multi-Engine, Ground Instructor and a few others. I never had her level of interest and my pitiful eyes limited me to just a basic single engine fixed wing. Have some great flying stories especially about the airport with "A hill for the runway" right here in North Middleboro. Been many years since either of us have flown but she did name our oldest, Jonathan, after Jonathan Livingston Seagull and hoped her interests would be passed down. Currently he is flying for Sky West Airlines and has been for over a year flying CRJ200s, 700s and 900s out of Milwaukee. Quite a commute Massachusetts to Wisconsin but most pilots do that. He just got back from Salt Lake City after a few days of updated sim instruction for everything they can throw at you. Hopefully, he will not fall victim to the economy as so many other commercial pilots have.
Now comes the Obama coronation and I am the ultimate pessimist on this. Never have I hoped I am so wrong as with this.
