(Andy Rooney is dead.)
Yesterday, the Dragon Lady prepared toc-torry-tong for dinner. Translation? Spicy chicken soup with potatoes. The meal was good. Yet be careful. If you order this dish in a restaurant, it might very well burn a hole in your mouth. Even my lips were on fire. I washed the vittles down with a large glass of generic cola. Cabonated beverages bring me joy.
I viewed baseball on the tube. The Samsung Lions hosted the Kia Tigers in the city of Daegu. Samsung won 5-4. The game was quite exciting. The team drove in the winning run during the bottom of the ninth inning. But the Lions have been slumping. Nexen's about to knock them off their perch. The playoffs should be a lot of fun to watch.
I paid homage to the Christ God. I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees. No big surprise. I'm not some dirty atheist. I asked Jesus to relieve my stress. I worry too much. I wish I could just let go. Perhaps I need a psychiatrist to hook me up with powerful narcotics. Goof pills might be the ticket to bliss.
I went to bed at 10 p.m. I had a strange dream concerning Bob Beckel. He got into a huge fight with Andy Rooney on the set of The Five. The squirmish started when Bob touched Andy's leg. It was very violent. They even broke the chairs and tables. Andy finally apologized. He promised to buy musical instruments for a local elementary school.
I woke up at 6 a.m. and drank several cups of coffee. Then I read the paper while enjoying a bathroom break. Forty-four percent of Korean men enjoy smoking cigarettes. They're very angry over the proposed hike in tobacco prices. I don't blame them. The whole world is turning into a nanny state. The government needs to get off our backs.
I turned on Fox News. Obama wants to destroy ISIS, so we'll probably start dropping bombs in Syria by next week. I'm cool with the president's decision. The last thing the world needs is a hardcore Islamic caliphate taking over the Middle East.
Anyway, let's don our tinfoil hats. Here's Max Keiser discussing the fate of emerging markets with Jerome Booth.
