Re: Alicia Reynolds� Sept. 18 commentary, �Katrina demonstrates U.S. drowning in a flood of inept leaders�:
Have you ever noticed that when people have a personal agenda, they blame everyone and everything? They never offer solutions, their sense of memory is selective and their timeliness for events begins and ends whenever it is convenient.
Alicia Reynolds suffers from this personal blame problem.��
She lives in the problem. She doesn�t like when people tell the truth. She blames them for not being sensitive. She forgets that greed and scandal are human character flaws and not ones owned only by conservatives, men or heterosexuals.
American politics didn�t start with the Bush administration, anymore than tax and spend was discovered by the liberal Democrats.��
But let�s be more personal because everyone knows this � everyone but Alicia Reynolds.��� Here�s the real point: What�s wrong with this country is people like Alicia Reynolds � people who live in the problem and think the way to sound smart is to blame people. Point your finger and find out who did it. It�s getting old. I think Ms. Reynolds needs to look in the mirror. She doesn�t sound smart. She sounds misinformed and angry.���Try this on for size. I point the finger at Alicia Reynolds. She is what is wrong with our country, along with the fringe radical element of the media that is further and further disconnected to what most Americans feel. She blames, and she fills the news with her bitter hatespeak, day in and day out.Ms. Reynolds needs to grow up and get a real job.

So as a young child i loved to watch Seasame Street. Way before stupid Elmo came and took over. My favorite part of Seasame Street was the Grover the Waiter skits. I thought they were hilarious. So I found this one online the other day and I Loved it. I even remember watching it as a child. I also am fond of Super Grover, and pretty much anything with Grover in it. I love the book There's a Monster at the End of This Book. It is a classic. Ah yes to go back to those days when all you had to worry about was learning your ABC's. In fact I recently purchased a Seasame Street cd of a cassestte that we had when we were younger. It had my favorite skit on there with the letter Y and Grover and Prarie Dawn. It was tres Hilarious. And it gave some great lines such as "So I can be smart please tell me." and "I don't know why nobody likes me! I try to be so nice!!" Yes those were the days.
