Can We All Agree?

October 23, 2014

The first in a series, I hope, of  semi-regular observations on the week’s news:

Can we all agree that the Senate is just too close to call. Even Politico, which is decidedly right leaning, says so.
Can we admit that the country was just a tad nuts about Ebola, thank you Fox News and one poorly run hospital in Texas.
Can we all agree that there will never be another newspaper editor that anyone will remember after Ben Bradlee.
Can we agree that when three suburban Denver teens, steal money from their parents to join ISIS, we have a problem.
Can we agree that when terrorism strikes a nation, long known as the friendliest country on Earth, we’ve reached a new low.
Can we agree that, like inter-racial marriage, gay marriage is here to stay. I don’t think we need a countdown to 50.
Can we agree that when the airbags of almost 5 million cars may be faulty, someone screwed up, big time.
Can we agree that Gov. Gerry Brown has about a 110% shot of being elected.  But those ballot questions are anyone’s guess.
Plus YCMTU (you can’t make this up)
     Michigan Bans Tesla sales – like they are a threat to GM,
    The Swedes look for a Russian sub-The hunt for Reds inOctober,
    SF’s Golden Gate Bridge Authority  wants to charge you to walk to Marin and back,- great way to attract tourists,
    Pistorius facing 10 months in jail – he only killed one person
and last but not least
    Drunk Russian snowplow driver kills the head of French oil company – only in Russia
