Christmas is Coming; Truly

Typically, when I think of Christmas, I think of Happiness, Cheer, and all kinds of positive adjectives to describe the holiday season.

However, no one would ever suspect it was Christmastime with all of the bad news on the wire right now.

In science, Vitamin C might not have any impact on cancer and instead of the disease diminishing, experts think that cancer deaths will double by the year 2030.  

In politics, not that we didn’t know it already, but Chicago is friggin corrupt.  I moved from one corrupt city, Chicago, to another, Providence.  The governor of Illinois, Blagojevich, just got busted for among other things, trying to *sell* Senate Seat that President Elect Obama has left open.  And he’s even made it to the big leagues, NIGHTLINE.  Ah, corruption, the public loves them some corruption.

In technology, Apple is looking at marketing a product similar to their iPhone at WalMart.  It’s slated to cost only $99, and have a 4G capacity.  The smallest phone they currently sell is 8G.  While it seems like a great idea getting the product to the masses, this venture could reduce Apple’s per-share value $0.27.  While there are days that I would like to own an iPhone, the whole idea of it seems a little over the top to me.  I mean, we use phones to call people, right?  But the iPhone is a super-phone, with heroic powers.  It’s just too much for me to bear.

* EDIT: I’m watching The Daily Show, and is it just me or has Mike Huckabee put on some pounds?  Maybe I didn’t notice because he’s got a slim face.
