With all the events going on during the past few months, I was surprised to see how ready the nation was to attack and defame the now former President Bush. Although I'm not disappointed to see a change in the White House, I think that it is wise to respect the office of the President of the United States.
But my belief is deemed old fashioned by the late night shows and everyone else that made the President the butt end of their jokes. I'm not saying that the world has to throw out all things funny or that I never laughed at a joke made about President Bush (some of them were really funny); but I thought that the line of friendly joking was passed many times to purposely degrade the President. Those hating the president backed up their cause by the failing economy, the endless war, and so on... Seriously? I'm sometimes embarrassed by my lack of civic knowledge, but at least I know the fundamentals of governmental checks and balances. I'm just wondering how the rising generation will treat the President-- I hope that it will be with respect, but I'm not holding my breath.
Meanwhile, in other news here's a picture of two fine looking statisticians. That's right, we kept the stats for Christian's basketball team. It was pretty intense. I feel like I'm on Greg Wrubell's side when I taking those stats. Well, maybe not, but it is a lot of fun. Jeni was in charge of the shot chart and I was busy doing the rest of the stats. The boys on the team get a printout of the season-to-date stats each week at practice. Pretty good idea I say!
