--My Pittsburgh Pirates have once again, like clockwork, lost their 82nd game of the 2010 season, which means that they have completed their 18th season in a row as a losing professional ball club. Given the economic nature of the sport and the overall situation, I can't expect them to become a winning team anytime soon. Don't take My word for it: let this Salon.com article convince you.
--I understand the Miss Universe Pageant was held sometime in the past few days and Miss Puerto Rico finished...who gives a damn.
--Isn't it funny how the much-vaunted PPP investments that were the primary reason behind the current (non)administration pushing Us into another $11 billion of debt have become mere background shenanigans to the political antics of Fools aiming for the 2012 elections? Anyone who thinks Thomas "Mad Führer" Rivera isn't challenging Luis "The Larva" Fortuño for the latter's (non)governor's position in the primaries is a blind idiot: that challenge was issued on Election Night 2008.
--My Island has received above-average rainfall since May, close to 30% more than in previous years. The frequent rains from tropical depressions or simple storm fronts is cause or effect of a lower-than-expected hurricane occurrence, but the water dumped on Our heads has been significant. So why does the local Water Authority act as if the damn stuff is actually decreasing its levels? Well, just take a drive around practically any place here and you will see leaks by the dozens. What that means is that We can't properly channel and store water when it's abundant, so it's no wonder that the agency that screws it up is starting to make noises that We should not use it too freely because most of it is already gone and most of what We have left is literally draining away.
--Some recent news reports have brought to Our attention that Our population decreased in the past decade, as per Census results. The culprit? Exodus, and I don't mean the Old Testament book. More of Us have left than have been born (exceeding deaths) or emigrated here. Reverses a growing trend in Our population that started way back in...the 1700s, I think. Or maybe the 1930s, after tuberculosis stopped killing Our folks by the thousands. In any case, it is a significant change, but one you won't hear any of Our """""leaders""""" (extra quotation marks exponentially increases the sarcasm) discussing to any meaningful degree except in one aspect: fewer federal dollars because We have fewer people. The """obvious""" solution: Pay Us to screw more.
