“Oh, isn’t that sweet? Rolling Stone has a cute 10 year old girl on the cover.”
So I walk into a local convenience store to pay for my gas. I see this on the magazine rack. Rolling Stone, a magazine which once purported to have some cachet, some hip relevance, well, now… not so much.
There’s just so much wrong about putting up a picture of a 18 year old boy (I can’t bring myself to describe him with the m word) that looks like a 10 year old girl and putting in the headline …
Disgusting. Weird. A lateral move from the make-up laden, adult-dressed five year old girls whose parents shove them in prepubescent “beauty” pageants. I admit, I didn’t read the story, but given that 99.99% of the people that see this cover won’t read the story, I don’t feel too bad about this. This kind of odd, child porn vibe, imagery and verbiage isn’t funny, hip, or anything less than puke worthy.
Bloomberg & The Boobies
No, that’s not the name of the thrash band I played in during the eighties. It’s the lead-in for the latest Mayor Bloomberg Nanny state invasion. Mayor Bloomberg is pushing hospitals to hide their baby formula behind locked doors so more new mothers will breast-feed. Hey, Ya Honor, remember this old saying?
“Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”
A saying attributed to Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain
Apparently the Klan couldn’t fit Hizzoner on their schedule.
Or Emanuel is trying to lock up Chicago’s critical bow tie industry vote.
Or Emanuel thinks credibility causes cancer and wants to lower his levels.
Or he was hurt Joe Biden has appeared in OSR three times and he hasn’t appeared even once?
