Tossed Salad Friday

~~ The I’m going on vacation so you need to hurry! frenzy reached a fever pitch with this email: “I’m heading to Punta Cana for two weeks, so it would be great if you can get this closing to happen before I leave.” Since she was leaving in just two days, I sent her a return email that said, “Adiós.’

~~ Wednesday’s gathering in Washington, DC was awesome (I wish that I could have been there). It pains me that many in our country (and the world) still have to struggle for equality and respect. CRT-march-on-washingtonWe should never be judged by the color of our skin, our gender, our beliefs, our loves, and the choice to wear a hoodie, but we’re not a post-racial, post-gender, tolerant society. Read through the comments on any number of topics online, or look at the violence unleashed on Twitter against the woman who wanted a woman (other than the Queen) to be featured on British currency, and you’ll see how much hatred and ignorance is festering in our neighborhoods.

~~ Even though I love my country for its ability to grow and change (albeit too slowly), I’m angry about our upcoming national holiday. Business owners that have grown successful on the backs of minimum wage workers will take Labor Day off, while many of their workers will toil. I’m all for free enterprise, and I completely understand the risks and investments owners undertake, but I have no sympathy for those who prosper off the labors of those that can’t make ends meet while working 40 hours per week. 

~~ Though the slaughter of Syria’s citizens is blood curdling, I’m having trouble stomaching taking action. I know doing the right thing isn’t always palatable, but it’s not me that has to decide. I have never reflected as much about the massive and life-changing responsibility placed upon the POTUS as I have this week.

~~ It’s kind of amusing that I wrote the preceding sentence, as I’ve held W personally responsible for destroying or impoverishing many people’s lives.

~~ Hey, blog readers who chide me from time to time for wandering away from my soapbox— are you happy today?

~~ How the heck can this be the end of August? More importantly, how the hell can Rosh Hashanah be next week?

Have a great Labor Day weekend!
LET’S GO METS!
