QUESTION OF THE DAY
Every once in a while some famous or important national figure dies and we don't here about anything else in the news for at least week. Sometimes it is the person's life and achievements that brings about the gushy media frenzy (Gerald Ford) and sometimes it is the manner in which they died (Sharon Tate). So for today's question of the day- who will be the next one to go? I personally think the next time we don't even hear about Iraq for a week is when they bag sasquatch, but I think the next significant national figure to die will be none other than Dick Cheney. It saddens me to think about it, but the day must come and I think that ticker is running on sheer momentum. I'm afraid that after 2008 he'll tag out. The burden of this country and all of its weighty concerns are more than that fragile frame can bear. I'll tune in though when it happen. That is the form that my grief will take- a 24 hour news coma.
