A Cat's Eye View
Baxter here. Since I got off schedule last week, my Female Human said I could switch my Blogging Day to Wednesdays. So here I am.
I have some News from the World of Animals so I thought I would start out with the good news that a Beagle has finally won "Best in Show" at the Westminster Dog Show. Now, I am no Fan of Dogs, but this one seemed as if he was pretty cute.
In News of the Bizarre, the Associated Press reports that a car driven by an Alaska State Trooper was nearly hit by a falling moose while driving along a highway in Alaska. Apparently it fell from a Cliff to its Death. Who knew Moose would be so clumsy? I can imagine that being hit by an Animal of that Size would not be pretty. Hope he made someone a good Meal. (And they better have shared it with their Cat. I'm sure one of my Relatives would enjoy it).
In other News, I see that that Baseball Player, Roger Clemens, is testifying before Congress about his use of some kind of Illicit Drugs called Steroids. Now, I am not a big Fan of Roger Clemens in the first place, but as a Cat who has been known to partake of Prednisone, a Steroid, from time to time for my skin problems, I am Curious (as Cats tend to be) why this is a matter to be pursued by Congress? If these so-called Steroid things are illegal, why don't the Powers That Be just indict Mr. Clemens on criminal charges, to be handled by the courts? What does Congress have to do with this Problem? It would seem to me that Congress might have Better Things to do with their time. But I'm only a Cat so what do I know?
The Political Scene continues to be lively. After the Obama Human's sweep of the Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC primaries, he is gaining Momentum. Interestingly, the former manager of ex-President Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign just endorsed Obama for President. The Hillary Human must be getting Nervous as a Long-Tailed Cat in a Room Full of Rocking Chairs, as they say.
My Female Human has asked me to end this Post now as she needs the Computer. So long for now, and enjoy your Catnip this week. I'll be back next Wednesday for another Roundup of the News.
