The Terminator's Judgment Day.


Who moved the rock? It feels like someone moved a huge rock and all the ugliness in the world oozed out.

So far if 2011 has a theme it seems to be rock shifting of the literal and figurative kind.

Despots of the Middle East, if your reign has lasted unchallenged for decades—we have some bad news. This is the year your rock gets moved and you get the boot. Please pack your things and be out by Monday. Take a hint. Nobody wants you anymore.

Note to Gadhafi: How can someone who dresses in the same turbans and caftans, as Elizabeth Taylor not be stylish? Actually you look extremely foolish.  It’s time for bad actors everywhere to get off the stage, so exit stage left. We look forward to tossing your rock at the back of your head, good-bye.

Captains of Finance you’re not safe either. Dominique Strauss-Kahn we’re talking to you. Did you hear the gravel trickling down the cliffside? Of course you didn’t because while the world was falling down around you—you were busy sexually assaulting maids, who earn minimum wage in the $3000 per night hotel you cavort it. Shame on you.  I hope the turndown service on Riker’s Island meets your high standards.

Admittedly, this last one hurts. I loved this guy, took inspiration from him and I wanted him to be a better man than he is. Arnold, you’re a very smart man so why did you do something so stupid and hurtful? That’s all I can say.

Who or what is next? I’m sure 2011 has much more to surprise us with in an icky way, but I suppose those rocks do need to be lifted, so a burst of bright daylight can clean up the slime.

I’m sorry we had to move the rocks and see the gunk beneath but it needed to happen. Hopefully our garden will soon be a cleaner brighter place.

  2. Springtime is for spring cleaning and cleaning all of the gunk away. I was surprised by Arnold myself, don't know why but I was. Maybe it had to do with all of the family movies that he made? Great post!

  3. Arnold sounds like so many others - "sorry" that he got caught.
    I can't imagine how awful it must be for everyone else affected by his actions having this play out in the press.

  5. Kat, here's the deal. We all think men have changed over the centuries...not! Men are still men and they do what they do. As always, some are better 'men' than others. Let's not kid ourselves.

  6. Julia, I agree most men are not going to win top marks in the self-denying Mother Teresa Derby, but these are particularly "bad" men in charge of so many, pretending to be something they're not. For shame for shame!
