I’m stuck with about five bags of Halloween candy this morning after having only one kids come over to trick or treat Beggars Night. Paige the Princess was out only visitor…she got a lot of candy. I’m a little disappointed cause I didn’t get my usual crop of Halloween jokes.
So now it sits around the house. Not that I’m complaining. It’s just not going to help with my quest to lose a few lbs by Thanksgiving.
To the News:
So are we a swing state or is Sen Obama just taking a victory lap? I can’t imagine it’s the latter. If Sen Obama is here four days before voting starts someone has seen something that indicates Iowa is in play. It may be the same reason Gov Palin will be back in Debuque this weekend.
One more thing. The more we see and hear, the more we learn the Obama campaign is showing itself to be a well oiled machine. I say this only because it’s unusual. Most of the time there is a certain amount of chaos associated with these campaigns, especially at this point when schedules are made at the last minute and plans change with the poll numbers. Not so with the Obama campaign. If they are planning last minute…if there is chaos behind the scenes were not seeing it. What that says about a potential Obama Presidency…draw your own conclusions.
Another note that just came into the newsroom….Our boss just came into the newsroom and said they’re calling the plane Obama is flying in O-Force One. OK…
Memo to whoever coined that one:
Look behind you…you just crossed the line…
Saw it coming…
I never really felt I understood the reaction of parents I’ve worked with when we read stories about children who are murdered. Maybe it’s because I have two on the way, but I think I’m starting to understand the reaction in a more personal way.
The story of a toddler murdered in eastern Iowa is horrible enough…whatever your background or family situation…but you have to wonder how a parent could do something like this to his or her child. That exactly what prosecutors are charging Michelle Kehoe with.
We all suspected this was going to be the eventual outcome…
That’s all I’ve got. We’ll see you at Noon. Maybe I’ll do a little More blogging then.
