My father thinks labor's going to regret this big time and says Barack's already back pedaling on his support.
If that helps. that's what he thinks. (He's usually right.) But I'm not following it. I've got enough local news to follow without attempting to become an insta-expert on Wisconsin.
And you consider yourself very lucky that I haven't bored you with one news story I've been following that is probably nothing but junk news but it's getting a lot of play. It's a local story, this woman lost her three foot boa constricter on the subway. Oh, what the hell, I'm talking about it. Okay on our subway here in this state, a woman lost her boa constrictor. And it was in a subway car for almost a month. (I think it was 29 days.) And that subway car was repeatedly used and people were in it. And the boa constrictor was there the whole time -- three feet long. And if you're feeling sorry for the woman, I don't. I would have and did when I thought her snake escaped from a cage. Then I heard she got on the subway with it wrapped around her neck.
Would you want to stand or sit next to that?
I sure wouldn't.
Who gets on a subway with a snake out in the open -- a three foot snake. She's lucky, she is so lucky. If I'd seen, I would have been screaming. And if I'd seen it while I had my granddaughter with me?
And she's darn lucky it didn't kill a child or an adult.
The transit people want her to pay a little less than $700 to get the subway car cleaned and she's apparently offended by that.
Okay, this is from Kait8, "The head of the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans says female veterans are one of the fastest-growing segments of the homeless veteran population. The founder of the Women Veterans Network says women veterans' unemployment rates are typically higher." That's some real news. But if it was your city that the boa constrictor got loose on mass transit, trust me, you'd be following that story too.
