The other day I was reading People Magazine. I often broaden my celebrity horizons with either People, or check up on the latest visits and impregnations by space aliens in the Star when I’m in the checkout lane at Kroger’s. In an interview with some actress they asked her what her pet peeve was and she said, “People who take all day to cross the street, making me wait for them, when it’s ME who has the green light.” “WOW,” I said out loud and told my wife that I was just given the gift of a topic for another tirade. In other words, I’m now at the point where I’m feeding off OTHER people’s hatred. But… just like my old high school track coach, Idi Amin did when he won the presidency of Uganda in a closely-contested race (he barely squeaked by with a 99% plurality), I claimed it for myself.
