Three Random Cinco de Mayo Rants

1. Have always been taken back at how this nation turned a singular Mexican army victory into a May St. Patrick’s Day.  Mexico turned back French soldiers, for heaven’s sake.  Who couldn’t do that?

2. The television ads for the pharmaceutical industry continue relentlessly and I have finally reached my limit on “_____ is not for everyone.”  Then they proceed to tell you so many side effects and potential issues you realize that _____ isn’t for ANYONE.  People who write the copy for these things are on drugs.

3. Local minor league baseball team is having a “Senior Day Game” where the start time is 9:35 AM.  I guess the assumption is whomever is a “Senior” is up well before then…like it is their lunch time or something.  Did anyone think players might not want to be starting at 9:35 AM?  And as for being a “Senior” I’m still trying to figure out what that elusive number is.  We have a paper that has a weekly segment called “Fifty Plus.”  Is fifty “Senior?”  Why are all the “Senior” housing ads in the same paper telling me I have to be fifty-five to qualify?  I think whomever is in charge of the “Senior” age is showing theirs.

Happy May 5th.
