I don't know about any of y'all, but I'm actually relieved to learn that Chicago wasn't chosen as the host city for the 2016 summer Olympics.
It settles something I've been worried about for more than a year, now:
Obama is not the anti-Christ.
Ok, so can we all switch back to the important mission of health care reform? And that means you, too, Mr. President. Ahem. The ball does appear to be dropping.
And not in a swoosh-nothing-but-net kinda way.
Rather, in a $13K-annual-premiums-plus-$4500-deductable kinda way. As in, I'd like to help stimulate this economy back to good health but I can't because I'm drowning in health care expenses.
So pardon me if I'm not altogether blown away with excitement that a South American country, for the first time in history, will be hosting the Olympics. Or blown away with disappointment that Chicago won't be hosting.
But I will be blown away if this great country of ours can't figure out how to legislate a public option.
As always, it's about choice. And I am all about choice. All ways.
