Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Good Music Friday Plus

I know what you’re thinking – this is starting to be like the old days, where I didn’t post for months at a time.
Well, it may end up being that, but right now its just getting knocked off my ass on account of this None Dare Call It Ebola I’ve got here. Can’t even hardly climb a flight of stairs without hacking up a cup of lung butter.
So to get back on the horse, let’s just take a spin around existence and see what’s what.
First, speaking of ebola, it turns out I’m not the only one on the verge of hysteria about it. A doctor in the know suggests that this may be an excellent time to panic, for one simple reason:

The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years

This hyper-evolution, he warns, usually leads to easier communicability, such as going airborne. He then goes on to ponder the measures necessary to contain such a thing, and implies a solution that includes a lot of pre-emptive killing.
Next up, Our Simple Affirmative Action President is getting pushed into fighting an enemy he’s deeply sympathetic to, an enemy he doesn’t have any enthusiasm for engaging, yet here we are as US bombs once again rain down on exotic places such as Mosul and Tikrit. If you haven’t seen it yet, the video bringing together the past four presidents declaring their resolve to bomb Iraq into submission is illustrative mainly in the context that, before Bush I, Iraq was squarely in the Ally column on the US Foreign Policy spreadsheet.
So bombs away, then.
Moving on, the very people that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has spent that last decade courting now seek to burn his house down with him in it, because some other man punched his wife in an elevator that happened to have a camera in it. While his ouster would be fun to watch, the method in which it will happen, and the terms under which it will take place are simply another mile marker on this highway of lunatics. At least the French had the decency to use a guillotine, not a hashtag, to sate the frenzied mob.
At least we’re still batting above the Mendoza Line, so there’s that.
Have an excellent weekend, hope it’s not too cold for most of ya, or too hot for some of ya, and get ’em in.
