    To be fair, we don’t actually know for certain that Ford is an addict (crack, alcohol, or whatever), but he obviously has a problem of some sort. He has suggested that he only used crack once “in a drunken stupor”, and while I suppose that could be true, it is also classic denial behavior that an addict would display. And given the highly addictive nature of crack, if he’s used it more than once, it is very unlikely that he could just be a “casual” user. And regardless of the crack issue, he clearly has a problem with alcohol (although again, we don’t have enough information to determine whether he would be considered an alcoholic).

    The point is that he needs to take some time away from the spotlight and get some help.

    How is this guy still mayor ? I don't understand. He needs some kind of rehab, at the very least.

    That happens to me every now and again. I'll get the sore throat and maybe a cough, but no congestion. I count my blessings . . .

    From your sinuses, through some Eustachian Tube to my ear:
    Went to the doctor this morning and now I can hear a little too well. Some (sharp) noises even hurt! I'm sure tomorrow will be better.

    had the late shift, from 13:00 to 22:30.

    Odd shift. Part timers come at half past five and work until half past ten. It is meant to provide service for our clients (car dealerships) so they can order their part late. so what is late? the lats batch is processed at six.

    That gives us lots of extra hours to do thing like sweep the floor, take inventory, unpack deliveries.... Things you can do during regular working hours.

    What are they up to? It must have a reason we are not told yet, some nasty surprise I wager.

    Hey, you wanted a straight line, I gave you a straight line! I could have even spiffed it up with a double line if you'd asked:

    I learned something interesting today!

    Why a firetruck is red:
    Cause there's eight wheels on them and four people, and four plus eight is twelve, and twelve is a foot and a foot is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was also a ship, and the ship sails the sea and in the sea is fish and fish have fins, and the Finns fought the Russians and the Russians were red and that's why firetrucks are red.


    :p

    And here I thought they were red because pink was a bit too girly (even for firemen).

    I don't know, the logic in that seems a bit weak.
