Things that don’t make sense to me

1. I saw a billboard the other day. The focus of the billboard was to get more kids in to Catholic Schools. Not a particular Catholic school, but ANY Catholic School. The way that religion can be advertised, the way religion creeps in to our public schools, our local, state and federal governments is just appalling. Whatever happened to freedom of speech, freedom of religious beliefs (or lack of). Can we start putting up billboards in the subways trying to get people to get right with Satan?  Not that I believe in that either, but somehow I think you might hit some resistance if you wanted to buy ad space for Satanic Cults.

2. Speaking of which, last week I heard in the news that Metro North had some billboards up in Westchester that were basically aligning all Islamic beliefs and practices with terrorism, and advocating that it be wiped out. Metro North said they didn’t censor their advertisers based on content. SO we should be able to put up those pro Satan billboard ads there I guess. Anyway, they interviewed the people who were behind these ads, and they said, “How can you not put this up when it’s the truth? Islam is terrorism”. Not a direct quote, but close enough. Where did they get all their facts, evidence and proof?

3. Heard an ad on the radio for a new HBO series. It was sponsored by Durex Condoms. The tag line for the show was “Family is Everything!”

4. How can the IRS garnish wages when my wages have nothing to do with salads?

5. And a short story. As a young kid, I repeatedly had nightmares in which I would be at school and release in a panic that I still had my slippers on. A couple of days ago, I had to leave the house really early and really quickly. We drove down to South Orange to get some breakfast. As soon as I stepped out of the car, something didn’t feel right. I looked down, and realized I still had my slippers on. Traumatizing. It came true after many many years.
