SNEEZE COUGH SNIFFLE SNIFFLE
I thwarted my cold from taking root in my chest, where it usually vacations. Yesterday I thought I was just about free of the bugger, then this morning I awoke at 4:00a.m. barely able to breathe. I'm sneezing like I inhaled black pepper, and I feel that ol' chill a'creepin' upon me once again. siiiiiigh
I received an e-mail from Rik, my favorite American blogger in Italy, who wants me to comment on Nagin's comments that God is mad at us.
Kitty, puh-leez write about Ray Nagin's comments yesterday about God being mad at the US...it's way too funny to ignore...
WOA! God is mad at America? So I googled and sho'nuff, according to Nagin, God is not pleased:
"Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country," Nagin said as he and other city leaders commemorated Martin Luther King Day. "Surely he doesn't approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses."
Does Nagin think that God approved of the mass tortures and murders in Iraq? But y'know, he made some painfully honest points, too:
"But surely he is upset at black America also. We're not taking care of ourselves."
"Why is black-on-black crime such an issue? Why do our young men hate each other so much that they look their brother in the face and they will take a gun and kill him in cold blood?"
The reply, he said, was, "We as a people need to fix ourselves first."
My favorite Nagin Nonsense is his "chocolate" comment.

'You'll Never Nanny in This Town Again': Working for Michael Ovitz and Living to Tell About It
Ovitzes, Wingers, DeVitos—and the Hollywood live-in babysitters and all-around household gofers who make their busy lives bearable—are the subject of former nanny Suzanne Hansen’s You’ll Never Nanny in This Town Again …
Working with “the first family”—the Ovitz clan—was the most difficult of her Hollywood nanny jobs, Hansen says, and her book backs that up with amusing, sometimes outrageous anecdotes from her time there. The parents, Judy in particular, who in Hansen’s account, routinely spent exorbitant amounts of money on parties and vacations, refused to shell out cash for more quotidian items, such as a new iron, she writes, though theirs had become an electrical hazard.
