‘Today I don’t feel like doing anything.’

That Bruno Mars song about being lazy is silly but seems to fit the ennui I am feeling about writing something today. We are all tired of the pandemic and tired of writing about it. At the same time, I am surprised at our foreign affairs people in Ottawa thinking they were going to win the open security council seat.

My problem is that I ration these commentaries. I only write one a day. A lot of blog writers routinely write four or five blogs in a day. Frankly, I would rather read the North American edition of the Economist. Those people have something to say.

But at the same time, I might write about our Canadian economy. We need to remember that poor Bill Morneau as finance minister in Ottawa needs all the help he can get.

And I am tired of writing about that ass Trump in Washington. I would rather go watch a rerun of that wonderful old movie ‘Mr. Smith goes to Washington.’  I simply cannot believe that Trump will go through with one of his idiot rallies in Tulsa, Oklahoma this weekend. I would not wish covid-19 on anybody but those Trump supporters do seem eager to drink their Kool-Aid.

There is no question that there are lots of things to write about. I will try to come up with something interesting tomorrow. See you then.
