People seem to be asking if it’s just President Obama, his blackness, his socialism? I haven’t seen the last seventeen years so ably summarized as here. It’s all about one little letter, the 18th. Capitalized. Nothing else matters.
Meanwhile, Corporate America attempted another raid on my checking account at the end of last week. They also sent me a letter saying my 10-01-2009 mortgage payment was needed immediately. Sheesh. And this is a business that wasn’t indicted for fraud and mismanagement and all. When I spoke with my friendly customer service representative earlier today, he just said it was all a mistake and I should ignore the pay-up letter. “May I get that in writing, please?” I asked.
We don’t do that, he said.
No, I thought, of course you don’t.
