What Do I Know, I'm Just a Loon

My grandfather on my father's side had a sister, "Aunt Enie," who was mildly retarded and a little bit crazy. Of course when I was a little kid I didn't know this about her. I didn't really notice her being that different from any of the other older relatives on my dad's side. Except that she was shorter.

Anyway, sometimes the other adults, when Aunt Enie wasn't around, would laugh about the way she would become incensed at things she saw on television, both the news and professional wrestling if I recall correctly, and shout at the TV. At the time, that seemed a bit strange to me.

Now... uh... I do it, too. Not at wrestling, though, just the news.

President Bush is rattling his sabre at Iran again, claiming that Iran is arming insurgents in Iraq. Collapse )
