hey its my two favorite dutchies

my space bar is broke on my laptop so ifyousee wordsmushedtogether then you know im not drunk. it seems like the right side of the button is bad not the left so im using my left thumb. and it seems to be doing the job.

anyways since todays sunday lets say a little prayer to our friends in the gulf coast.

theres a blowhard on cnn rambling on about how hes getting info on “twitter and myspace”. hes telling his director about this or that. a real roll up your sleeves and lets “go forward” on this breaking story. sorta disgusting sorta alpha male fascinating. as if he wants to literally strangle the hurricane himself and provide play by play on how he’s doing it.

comedy on what will surely be a tragic story in no time.

i also dont trust that thats all his own hair.

there was a time when i wasnt so cynical. hard to remember that far back but im sure it wasnt the day i was spanked into life. which is why i admire my dutch friends in the photo. intelligent, alert, but optimistic. neither of them think about america as a goal in their lives.

maybe vancouver for justagirl. maybe paris for bicyclemark.

dont they know this is the greatest country in the world? dont they know that here you can be the mayor of a town with as many people as can sit in the bleachers of wrigley field and then become governor and before your first term is over you can be a heartbeat away from president? (and what a heartbeat, indeed.)

that doesnt happen in paris. or canaduh. sorry yo.

once upon a time, back when i was idealistic, i was told that anyone could be presidnet of the united states.

im finally starting to believe that again.

thank you america.
