Had coffee with my old friend the other day. He is a great guy, funny and very smart. He does have a tendency to find a political slant for every little thing that happens in his life.
Some people might find it hard to take, especially his insistence that the government can solve all of our problems, but I just chalk it up to the many hours he spends on political blogs and Internet websites. He was upset when he walked in.
“Sorry I’m late. I was behind a car, one of those gigantic gas-guzzling SUVs, that was going slowly, and when I finally got around it, I could see the driver on a cellphone texting.”
“I hate when that happens,” I agreed. “That is so dangerous.”
