Random Thoughts From the Ghetto-Volume 17

I look out my window and see the empty 40 oz beer bottles, hypodermic needles, crack pipes and abandoned shopping carts left on my front lawn. I begin to think. The end results have become known as my random thoughts from the ghetto...

Some random thoughts collected while wondering what ever happended to Waddi Sawabini...

-Does anyone else notice teenagers on foot crossing the street in front of you while you have a green light? I'm not sure when this became popular. I guess nothing says cool like a trip to the head trauma unit at ECMC.

-I was glad to see the link to my blog listed on Carl Paladino's blog. Unfortunately, the next day, it was gone. Someone must have made a phone call to alert him I was persona non grata. They must have said, "Be aware of this guy. He has a mind of his own."That's ok. I like the work Paladino has done in the community and will still display his link on my list of related sites. Not many people in this area can say they are too controversial for Carl Paladino so I consider it an honor.

-Very few people have taken me up on a chance to win $50 by sending this link to their friends. In fact, right now only Billy OHeir, Marty Farrell, Linda Herbert, and Jennifer Reiss are eligible for the January drawing. 1 in 4. Not bad odds. My brother Pat had a good idea. He said instead of offering people $50 to promote my blog, I should charge people $100 to not be mentioned in it.

-I'm not big on conspiracy theories but I have to admit I like Jessie Ventura's new show. He has some interesting topics. Ventura has been a navy seal, a professional wrestler, a governor, and now a journalist. I'd say that's a pretty interesting resume'.

-There's nothing funnier than when someone privately refers to someone else as a fruitcake. What a great word. Glad you could make the party. No problem. I brought a fruitcake.

-Does anyone remember the songs recorded to make money for the famine in Ethiopia during the 1980s? Bob Geldoff formed the group Band Aid and they recorded a very nice Christmas song called Do They Know it's Christmas? Not to be outdone, American artists got together for the historic We Are the World. No you're not but at least you were able to raise some money. Finally, a Canadian supergroup called Norther Lights created the song Tears Are Not Enough. Oh no. Leave it to the mullet wearing Canadians to jump the shark. I don't know how this project could fail, with renowned singer John Candy on vocals.

-Come on Fonzie! You're not at Arnolds Drive Inn,You're on a vacation at the beach. Take off the leather jacket will you?

As Ray Herman once said, go forth and sin no more...


  1. Regardless of what Ventura likes to say, he's not a Navy Seal, he's a Frogman. A totally different division, and Frogmen worked under Seals.

  2. thank you for the information DS. These Hollywood types love to exagerate their resumes. I'm not surprised.
