the absurd observers

Welcome to the site

I'd like to start off the site with a serious discussion about cold cuts. Specifically, I'd like to address salsalito turkey. I know what you're thinking, "is this going to be ANOTHER blog devoted to hybrid deli-meats?" And, I'm here to tell you to relax, because salsalito just happens to be on my mind today, because - as I'm sure you can guess - of its inextricable connection with Social Security.

Salsalito is bland in the middle and spicy on the edges. Similarly, Social Security was boring for many years, but on the edges, at either end of its existence - at its start or finish - it's seemed interesting. Also, both salsalito turkey and social security are getting in the way of the GOP's dream of an ownership society. Keep this a secret though, because so far the GOP has only identified social security as the culprit.

While social security itself is like salsalito turkey, the debate and discussion about social security is a lot like the debate and discussion over Y2K in the late 90's. "Why hasn't someone fixed this already?" "Why didn't someone think of this before?" "Will this effect slotmachine revenues?"

The ball dropped on January 1, 2000, and nothing happened to our computers, not even to Commodore 64s that are powered by some guy peddling a stationary bike. I wonder if maybe when the proverbial salsalito turkey ball drops, as the baby boomers collect their social security, if maybe all of our spicy turkey sandwiches will still taste ok.
