Grab your Walton donuts before they go the way of... the Waltons

Dear Members and Constituents, A couple of pre-sets on my car radio lead to hip-hop and alternative stations (a byproduct of having two licensed teens). Driving to work this morning, my attempt to find suitable “jam” music led to Pitbull saying he should be “locked-up like Lindsay Lohan”. Needless to say, the analogy put a smirk on my face and got me wondering what others might be out there ripe for the picking. The ones I came-up with are fairly obvious and not all that great: You need to get to work and stop whining like a ninety nine percenter   I’m feeling as stressed as the Euro   He’s such a flirt he fancies himself a Herman Cain That medicine the doctor prescribed was as ineffective as congress I’m sure you can probably come-up with -or have heard- better ones (and I’m willing to bet we would all enjoy reading them, if you care to share).

So, if you need “that extra push over the cliff” come grab one -or as many ones as you like. Happy Friday!  

The Donutzone is Open

Dear Members and Constituents, The land of the gyro is stressing the Euro and folks eating calzone concern the Eurozone. The banks are upset they trusted sovereign debt and market low confidence follows a Greek vote of no confidence. I think Drachma and Lyra would not make the path clearer. As my 401-K crawls it’s way to OK, my thoughts turn to donuts, they’re here, hip-horray!  So come grab a treat and if you’re still hungry, repeat. Happy Friday! P.S. I neglected to give credit (and this warrants an edit). Curtis Crawford’s debut did deliver a loot
