Dave's Being Lazy

I peeked out at the world and discovered it was Saturday.

I've decided not to write a blog today.

In fact, I've decided to just lie in. Read a book. Maybe catch a flick. Bake a tater tot casserole for supper.

Writing a blog just didn't make it on my list.

See, nothing happened that I want to write about. If I did write about one of the things, I'd be nasty. If I wrote about another, I'd be catty. If I wrote about yet another, I'd be inappropriate.

I don't want to be any of those things.

So, I'm not going to write a blog today.

I think I might just watch a bit of telly. Brew a pot of green tea. Make a sugar free cake.

It ain't easy having something to say every day. Straining through the day waiting for a blog to happen. Storing away stories for a dry day like today. Having a day come to a close without inspiration for the morning causes a bit of panic.

But why? I ask.

I can simply say: I'm not going to write a blog today.

It's my right.

It's my choice.

It's totally up to me.

So Chewing the Fat is closed for the day. Not the season. Not even tomorrow. But just for today.

Gone Fishing!

No wait, I'm vegetarian.

Gone Apple Picking.

Now I just need an accessible tree.

Well okay fine whatever ... :-)

I thought you might find Joe Biden's statement on hate crimes interesting. Found it on his website this morning ...

Punishing Hate Crimes: Senator Biden is a strong supporter of the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act to expand federal and state coordination to fight hate crimes. Every year more than 7,000 hate crimes are committed. Senator Biden believes these acts not only hurt victims, they damage the values that are America. The Act would enable the Justice Department to assist local agencies in investigating and prosecuting crimes, and would expand the definition of hate crimes to include offenses based on sexual orientation, gender, or disability. Senator Biden also supports the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act which would dedicate resources at the Department of Justice and FBI to re-open unsolved murders from the civil rights era.
