Some thoughts….

I am at work, on my second cup of coffee. I am nearly finished with the spreadsheet I started yesterday. So, I think I will take a blog break !

This morning I was quite hungry and the pantry was bare, so I decided to grab something on the way to work. I stopped at a Jewish deli near the metro and got a bagel sandwich with egg, cheese, and some sort of “mystery meat”. I would have preferred bacon, but of course that is not available at a jewish deli. Anyway, it was a good sandwich.

I read a news story this morning about the bad health effects of a fast food breakfast In the study they fed people a breakfast of an egg mcmuffin and a sausage mcmuffin from McDonalds

Now, that is a BIG breakfast. I really don’t care for “Mickey D’s” all that much. In theory a bacon, egg and cheese bisuit sounds pretty mouthwatering, but my usual experience is to get a semi-warm slab of yellowish congealed protein along with some fiberous substance that superficially resembles bacon, and some cold half melted “cheese substance” all on a half-baked semi-soggy roll. Yummy !!

I like to have a manly breakfast on weekends at Bob Evans. I have a big platter full of eggs, bacon, sausage, taters along with a cinnamon roll, all washed down with a tall glass of milk ! That’s what I like. I try to have this at least once a week ’cause I am taking Zocor pills for cholesterol and I don’t want to waste them, so I make sure they have something to work on !

Ok, in other matters, I saw a news story about prisoner abuse pictures. The Senators are debating whether or not to make the pictures public. They say that they are even worse that what is already out there. Although the pictures will no doubt be degrading to the prisoners, and they will be shocking, and they will also be titillating to our base desires: I say we should make them public. The reason I say this is because the only way to fight evil is to be relentless in exposing it. If it is covered up, allowed to hide, it will fester like a malignant cyst. We must root out and expose this stuff wherever and whenever it is found.

I wrote in an earlier blog that all people are quite capable of doing gross evil. Here is an article from USA Today article that explains it all quite well: citing the famous psychologist Philip Zimbardo.
