Catching up

June 24, 2009 - Steve Murch
It's strange not getting being able to get into a rhythm at work with days off during the week. So here's a little catching up:

• It's nice to see the gas prices coming down, even if it's a penny at a time, and only every few days. Down is down. However, you just know that they'll go up next week as the Fourth of July weekend approaches.

AAA has been out front saying that gas prices won't hit $3 a gallon this summer. Call it the skeptic in me, but I can see it moving to $2.99 a gallon before next weekend. Hey, it's not $3.

• What was South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford thinking? Of course it could be argued he wasn't. Still, not only was he having an affair, he was doing it crossing borders AND the equator. He was in another hemisphere. What, the women in America, and more specifically South Carolina weren't good enough?

While an affair by a married man is not good, why in the world did he believe he could get away with telling people he was hiking the Appalachian Trail? The best part of the story was the local reporter who went to the Atlanta airport to meet him. So much for sneaking back into the country.

With all the scandals lately the GOP is running out of new candidates for 2012. Party officials might want to identify a couple of strong candidates and put a couple of bodyguards on them 24 hours a day until the primaries are over.

• I couldn't believe someone was complaining about the heat today. All I had to say when they said something to them is think back to the loooooonnnnnggg February and March and they quit complaining.

• Rest in peace, Ed McMahon. McMahon defined the role of sidekick with his tenure with Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show. It's hard to believe both men are gone. The duo ushered in a new era of staying up late during the week. They weren't the first, but they were the best.
