Five for Friday
Somewhere in Upper Darby a Democrat is playing Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come mixed with Beyaki’s hook “Who Runs This Mother?”
This past Election Day a change indeed came to Upper Darby. For the first time in forever, there will be mixed representation on the Township Council. My hope and prayer is that this will not cause gridlock but enhance the community. A girl can dream.
- Speaking of Election Day, “No Child Left Behind” is a lie. The folks that came in to vote…let me say this: this is about all parties. One person said they didn’t want to vote for no “crackers” (insert disgusted look and sadness), another said that women who weren’t home taking care of business was a travesty (sir, have several seats and a seatbelt), and another screamed they needed help because they couldn’t figure out that pressing the big green VOTE button ended it all.
I fear that they have the power to say who represents the country.
- I’m probably late to the party, but I am loving Lordes “Royals”
You can call ME Queen R
- The Mayor of Toronto…What is it with these mayors and crack (cough, cough, Berry)? The Mayor said that yes he DID smoke crack, most likely during a drunken stupor. Unfortunately, the only lesson that we seem to have gotten from this is that the skinny crack head* is a myth.
My son had an opportunity to spend time with the creators of one of his favorite video games, Skylanders. We have the original game and he spent many hours playing it. HI know he’s going to ask for it for Christmas this year for X-Box.
Skylanders are available across consoles. And you can jump in and out of the game. No more losing your turn! #ATVIFamGames

- It was announced today that there would be more “teeth” to the 2008 law that was supposed to make mental health treatment just as accessible as treatment for physical health. Since mental illness is not a tangible disease, it’s often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder each year. Now that more attention is being given to the way mental health issues are treated, perhaps the stigma attached to those with a mental illness will be eradicated.
Random ESL idiom:

*While running a spell check, the word “crack head” appears in the dictionary as “one who smokes crack.” I’m not sure if this is amusing or tragic. Perhaps a little of both.
