Rachel Jeantil.
19 years old? (vulnerable “young” girl?)
as if…..
(and note: not gentile)

TWEET: June 23
‘Court Nails’
16 Mos. Later: ‘Wow….I Need a Drink…..’
Terrific. Compelling?
‘Amy: pretty gorilla comes to mind.’

I really don’t resonate enough to wrap around the “mind” (or lack of same) that we are ‘politically’..SUPPOSED to resonate with….because……..well…….’stupid is stupid……..

Personally: I was Not ‘pro-Zimmerman’
……..Rachel hit the stand.
Wow. (and ewwwwwww)

It’s not about black/white….

It’s not about 19 or 29—-
It’s about someone needing to integrate into the world in which one lives.
Forming literate sentences helps.

Sympathy for Rachel?

No, flashcards could work.

Maybe (all bets off)
and well,….
You know
………… Not such a pretty Gorilla.

If you want to capture someone’s attention……whisper?

If you want to capture someone’s attention……whisper?
(Frankly, I think bullhorns work pretty well…..)

So, we have the ‘Horse Whisperer‘– an acclaimed book by Nicolas Evans and a follow up film release in 1998 both directed and starred in by Robert Redford.

Next–we have the dog whisperer…..Cesar Millan. Mr. Millan is a Mexican born American who taught himself the art of communicating effectively with dogs—inspiring a wide fan base of clients as well as viewers of his reality series: ‘The Dog Whisperer.’

……And now,
Okay, I don’t text and drive. Sometimes I zone out at the red light and think—”gee, I wonder if I would really have to work out for two hours if I drank a Medium Wendy’s Frosty” (which, of course, I did—-drink it, not exercise…..sigh).
and Voila.

I had to search the contents of my LV Noe for my camera to freeze this moment of advertising—- (and girlfriends, you know how much junk you can pack in that drawstring tote…..)

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Somehow I don’t see Bob Redford directing any of the bathroom scenes for Sundance.
My guess is that Cesar is pretty busy, too.

Sadly, Wonder(s) do cease

Wow–84 years of Hostess Brands.

(Good news for my Pancreas and Hips)

I guess the reality of the company’s Labor (and Bakery Delivery) woes didn’t register with me until I hit the Hostess Thrift Bakery.

Wonder Bakery Thriftshop

The shelves were Bare. They were selling off pallets of ‘donettes’—those small chocolate coated or powdered rings that take four years to digest (just eat the cellophane package, too… really doesn’t matter).

Not a Twinkie, Cupcake (unless we count the ‘orange’ variety…..and I’m not) or loaf of white ENRICHED bread in sight. Oh yeah, there were some Zinger’s (Dolly Madison Bakery acquired by the former Baking Giant but marketed under their original name)—but, that’s not the same.

Hostess treats

Not that that stopped me from buying them………….(what’s next? Little Debbie?)

The strike against Hostess Brands led by its labor union in November crippled the Brand leading to its demise.

Down the Drain–Of course, on November 29 a federal bankruptcy judge finalized the liquidation of Hostess with a provision for a 1.75 MILLION bonus to be dispersed to basically 19 company Executives with the provision of managing the Company’s wind down.

Hopefully those well compensated ‘Ding Dongs’ are more skilled at that task than they have demonstrated with their combined business and labor acumen.

Of note: Greg Rayburn-CEO–did rule out a bonus for himself. I’m not too worried.

1.75 Million represents a LOT of cream filling. Ho Ho indeed.

Okay, so I prefer to shell out for Chanel rather than my secret addiction to Ho Hos.

Without revealing my prehistoric past, I will admit that I purchased Twinkies (while in my mother’s womb, of course) in the late ’60’s for 12 Cents a pack.
