Maybe you've thought it couldn't get worse.

The globe seems to be teetering on a rickety stand, waiting for the next kid to spin it as hard as possible until it falls off the library desk.

International "leaders" talk in obscure code speak about money, energy, collusion on this and that, no collusion on this and that, etc.

National "leaders" suggest we pray because it works we're told.

Local "leaders" say more taxes and fewer questions of them are what's needed.

It's downright confusing.

Social media sites are everywhere. They function as "news sites" in some minds and others like to use them to photograph food and argue.

Nothing is worse however than the simpletons who think that 140 characters covers "it", whatever "it" might be, except of course those same simpletons who will now have the opportunity to sit on their golden throne in the middle of the night hurling 280 character messages at the world.

That's right. Twitter has expanded its limit of characters from 140 to 280.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.

It's time to jump in a hand basket and hold on.

We're going to get there in double time now.

That's the thing of it, for me. 
Every time I think it can't get any worse, il trumpidente finds a way.

Rosi,

A few headlines into the morning and that's it for me.

Black coffee, toast, poach an egg maybe.

It's a challenge to feel normal...

alsoknownas, Yep!

Nah. People will just take 280 characters to say what they used to say in 140.

One of the best afternoons of my life was spent with this man long before all this cyber nonsense was upon us. I've had two fingers sewn back on so this YouTube always grabs me:

When the pastor at the church in Texas said “I don't understand, but I know my God does”, I couldn't understand how or why he presumed  to know that. Strikes me as begging the question, but I suppose that sort of thing is understandable if it helps him get thru the cold, dark night and the stark reality. Unfortunately, when horrific human behavior gets written off as "God's will" it does nothing to prevent such behavior from recurring.

In any case, it's certainly nowhere near in a league with Pat Robertson blaming 9/11 on God being mad at gays.
