By now y'all heard the news that Mr. Ron "tater salad" White was greeted by the local po-po and graciously shown the hospitality of the Indian River County Inn. Yes, welcome to Vero Beach!
First of all, Miss Vero doesn't know Mr. White, although we do have fabulous stories of our own days, livin' in Houston, Texas and our many comedian friends (remind Miss Vero to someday tell y'all about Sam Kinnison's Halloween party, where he tried to raise Jimi Hendrix from the dead, hunnies, poor ole Sam really knew how to throw a party!). And even though we don't know Mr. White personally, we think he has shown a very gracious Texan manner in handling the whole snitch-e-ation.
Miss Vero will refrain from getting on our high horse, so to speak, and tell y'all why this is wrong on so many levels, for fear that some backstabbing axe grinding rat will alert the fascist and hypocritical power to swoop in and flex their authoritative control with unreasonable trumped-up charges and justify their for-profit incarceration system. Nope, not gonna say a word.
We will just sit here quietly and read our favorite periodical and our favorite local opinion columnist, who when he gets real mad, uses terms like "Baloney!" and tells us he's gonna "nip this one in the bud." Ok, Barney Lemmon or Russ Fife, go get 'em!
Most of the time we skim down and just read Maxnewport's take on the whole thing. In a "Your Mama" throwdown between Mr. Lemmon and Maxnewport we'd bet the farm on Max.
Seems like Miss Vero is coming down with an extreme case of sarcasm and apathy, so we'd better take two martinis and get out of town this weekend to cure it.
But before we skidaddle off, we need to tell y'all that we have a pile of email to sort through (and answer) so y'all know the drill. We will tell y'all that we have skimmed through and a few folks have suggested some topics to cover, so we've put a little vote up at the top, for your input and we promise to not count them twice.
We'll be putting some more links to local websites and update y'all on local happenings on Monday, so we'll see ya then!
