As the October chill envelops us like
a foreclosure notice on the warmth and comfort of a home in the New England
summer, we review the tumult of the prior week.
Local events of note were relatively
sparse, eclipsed by the week’s developments on the national scene.
We did have the spectacle of the
state representative accepting an invitation to debate and then beginning to
tap dance around petty points of contention. We also learned that our new
Middle/High School was in a wireless dead zone. But not to worry. Like
everything else in Southbridge, we can buy our way out of it. Let’s just hope
that nothing critical requiring such resources happens in the meantime.
Of course the big news of the week
was the Presidential debate and the Bureau of Labor Statistics report for the
month of September. Surprisingly, the biggest news of the debate may have been
Mitt Romney’s announced Fatwa against Big Bird, a proven job creator.
The monthly jobs report led to another round
of conspiracy theories by the righties to supplant their rapidly evaporating
conspiracy theories about the legitimacy of national polling.
As usual The O’Zone has concocted its
own perpendicular view of these events.
So join in reviewing them as I lay
down on my floor to have a Hasselhof-Burger washed down with Old Milwaukee.
