Road Apples, #155

Scranton's Taxpayers...are going to take 19% hit on their property taxes next year, according to news reports.  As I've said many, many, many times before, Scranton's doesn't have a revenue problem, it has an expense problem.  City leaders can raise taxes all they want, and in the end it will never be enough.

Once Every Two Years...I've gotten my "once every two years" cold this week, which in part explains why I haven't written much.  Actually, I take that back (the writing part...), as I've been working on something, but it's one of those "may never see the light of day" kind of things.  I really have a had a cold though.

Feelings...Why does it feel as if I am in a perpetual state of always trying to catch up on stuff?  Be it at home, work or school, I'm always seeming to be chasing something.

Blogging...I was pondering the following the other day:  "If I lost my job and I had to find something new, what would I do with this blog?.  Job search professionals would probably tell me that I have too much disturbing/controversial/bat $hit crazy stuff here, all of which might hamper my job hunting prospects.  Personal digital footprint and the like, don't you know, and I suspect that my career prospects which would involve working for any elected official or school district in this area would be slim to none anyway.  I guess I should concentrate on keeping my job then.

Kim Kardashian...has created an Internet stir with her nekid butt and (now) front pictures on-line.  Yawn.  I don't see what the big deal is, honestly I do not.

  1. There are a tons of nude pictures on-line already.
  2. Anything can cause an "Internet sensation".
What the world actually needs to do is to stop allowing people to be famous for simply being famous.  How about that for a change?  Now excuse me while I go look at pictures of cats that look like Adolf Hitler (also known as "Kitlers").
