Thursday Moanin’

Things I am upset about on Thursday: Lines for one. I don’t understand why we have to wait in lines. How many times have I been at the end of a long line at the CVS on Woodward? Three registers and one clerk. How about the bank. How many times do you catch yourself standing in line to make a deposit or cash your check on a Friday afternoon and six of the eight windows are empty. The station at the grocery store with the most customers waiting is called the “Express Line.” The time of day when we are caught in bumper to bumper traffic on the freeways is called “Rush Hour.” Come on!!

I am sick of hearing over and over again how Stephen Grant hacked up his wife. I don’t need to know that she ended up in 14 pieces. Jack Kevorkian gets out of prison a convicted murderer and is paraded around the media like a celebrety claiming the Ninth Amendment guarantees assisted suicide. Huh?

How bout’ this? Michigan State Troopers are restricted to 40 miles per eight hour shift in their patrol cars in the budget crunch in Lansing. So if I recieve a ticket and I find out the trooper was over the limit, do I get it tossed out because he shouldn’t have even been on the road? Nate Robertson is relieved in the first inning of Tuesdays game against Texas because he couldn’t get even one out. He faced six batters and they all scored. Come on!!

And finally, Juergen Schrempp, the designer and head ramrod of the doomed DalmlerChrysler merger, a merger that reduced the value of Chrysler over nine years by $12.6 billion and saw the loss of 40,000 jobs, has stock options worth $139 million. Come ooooonnnnn!!!!!!!!!

    I think being in Detroit makes us more intolerant to lines. Our streets are very driver-friendly as there is little traffic and foot-traffic on most days. While I love having people flood the city during game days and other event days, it does get upsetting when I cannot find a space or I have to wait in line. A life without TV is a pretty good one to avoid sensationalized news. The reduction in driving for State Troopers does not make me feel all that safe. Perhaps if Juergen Schrempp could underwrite the police force and donate some Chryslers we may be alright.
