OK, I admit it. I admit it. I'm confused here. So now, the new "N" word is ..................... NUTS?
Just heard on the news this morning that indeed, Jesse Jackson used the "n" word. Now I ask you, how ridiculous is it to hear a professional, national news anchor saying "the 'N' word". Are we in grade school?
When I watched the Jesse Jackson tape, rerun multi-gillion times in case we missed it the first 2295 showings, I heard him say "nuts." Shocking. Next he's gonna say cashews and the national gasp will be heard on Mars.
I'm not denying that Jackson's sentiments are nasty, uncalled for, out of place and well ...... just plain stupid. I mean ...... in his eyes there's a problem with asking Fathers to step up to the plate and act as Fathers? Bill Cosby has said it, now Barack Obama is saying it. If you don't like what they're saying, step up and be a Father (and a good, non-cheating husband while you're at it) and maybe you won't hear it anymore. Leadership is the stepping stone to change.
But I'm not writing this BLOG to soap box my personal feelings about responsibility. I want to talk about nuts. Really. I do.
I'm wondering if now that the "N" word means nuts ....... will we move on to the "F" word meaning ........ um ....... figs? The "S" word will mean (heaven forbid) ..... squash? CARAMBA!
I'm all over this!!
See you in my next "B" ...... or maybe on "FB".
"LG" all my "F"s out there in "B" land.
PS - I'm really "J"ing here. This "B" was just for "F". I know what the "N" word means.
