To The Crying Girl Who Made Me Think (Excerpt from “My Little Book of Essays”)

I wrote this quite a few years back (maybe 16 years ago, maybe a little more) and never really got around to getting it to where I wanted it. As I was working on some things tonight I came across it again and thought that maybe I’d pass it along.

Just so you know… I wrote the original part of this on the plane and gave it to the girl after I collected my luggage. When I got home I sat down at my desk and did my best to reconstruct the letter. I think it is pretty close to what I originally wrote, but I can’t be certain of that fact. And, since that time I have often wondered if she ever read it, or if it helped her at all. I hope it did. And, if it did not… well, I know it helped me. And, maybe, just maybe, for some of you… it might help, as well.

TOTD – You Keep Them For Yourself?!

Thought of the Day – You Keep Them For Yourself?

by Senator Brett

There’s just something about the television show “Hoarders.” I don’t know if you’ve seen it or not, but basically it’s a tragic series that examines the sad lives of sad people who live in filth and squalor because of their refusal to throw things away and keep everything they lay their hands to in their even sadder homes.

But… there’s just something about that show. I have the complete series… every single one of them. Continue reading

The Last Supper of the Constitution

Disclaimer: I wrote this many moons ago… back when it still mattered to me. I give up now.  Actually, I gave up some time ago.

The Last Supper of the Constitution

by Senator Brett

They’ve been crossing my mind a lot lately, fluttering about as I make my way through the ordinariness of my daily existence: these wandering shapes and crooked lines, these loops and circles, these small words that amount to very little until you place them together row on row. And then they become as large as Life itself. 

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

And you pretty much know where it goes from Continue reading

So… I did… Continue reading

TOTD – I Got Your Equal Rights Right Here!

Disclaimer: This is NOT a true statement or news report! I repeat… this is NOT a true statement or news report!!! I peat.. it’s just humorous… and kinda sad that it could have been a true statement and news report.

Thought of the Day – I Got Your Equal Rights Right Here!

by Senator Brett

From the A-Holed News Press

(Madison, Wisconsin) – Wisconsin State Governor, Scott Walker, met with state legislators today to address the opinion that the state might be losing a public relations perception battle over the issue of Equal Rights. He said that he expected his office had aptly handled the situation by issuing the following statement: “Now that ‘Magic Mike’ has been released… we can all agree that true equality of the sexes has taken place. We men have our little discretionary films of T&A… and now women have their movie of biceps and abs. I, personally, find it a great social justice that our entertainment values are on the same playing field.”

However, Continue reading
