Restaurants

Now look, I'm nearly 75 years old, I'm fat and have eaten at many,many restaurants. Never again will I go to a "trendy" restaurant. If the place is a palace or a joint, if it's filled with twenty-something's -I'm off to Burger King. Last week at the oh so trendy Fig and Olivein New York, we couldn't hear ourselves talk! We did, however,have NO trouble hearing the percussion accompany to the stupid Muzak! NEVER AGAIN! The food was good, but not THAT good.

And again last night at the Vesta Dipping Grill in Denver, I was the dip! It was so dark that you needed dark vision goggles on loan from the Navy Seals just to read the menu! Once again, full of twenty-somethings. I should have known. The percussion on the stupid Muzak came through loud and clear! Menu was truly innovative,but I prefer Elway's.

Yeah, yeah the senile rant of an old man, but it's the old poops that pay the bills. Big macs forever!!!

Those fools in congress!

Both parties are placing party ahead of country. They should all be charged with treason!

"Best Served Cold." my novel is getting good reviews. One person has called it a page turner and a good yarn. The book is available on Kindle and at Barnes and Noble.com as well as Amazon.com.

Notes on Independence Day

I thank God daily that I am an American!

That said, our senators and representatives should be ashamed. A pox on both their houses! The fact that they are paying more attention to their base or to their party instead of the people's business is disturbing.There is NO way we can make any progress on deficit reduction without decreased spending AND increased revenue. Neither side gets it.

My book, "Best Served Cold," is starting to sell and getting some good reviews. I really have done very little PR to date.

Republican Debate, Amazon.com

Well, it looks like Mitt Romney was the big winner! I just wish he would say, OK folks, its the economy and nothing but! Drop the social agenda. The country is now too diverse for a group of gray haired white men (sorry Herman) to be dictating our mores. If Bachmann wants smaller government, fine. Let's start by NOT telling us whom we can love and marry, AND what women can do with their own bodies.

My book, "Best served Cold," has been published in soft cover. It is available at Amazon.com.

Ethics, Heidi St. Pierre

What about the spate of poor choices we have seen in the press of late? Congressman Weiner says he is guilty of no crime- I propose a fine for terminal stupidity. King Carl XVI Gustave of Sweden is caught in a strip club scandal-A Swedish Berlusconi? A former FCC commissioner who participated in the decision to allow Comcast to buy NBC/Universal leaves for a job with Comcast. That creep, John Edwards still suffers from ethical blindness. Doctors used to follow the precepts of Hippocrates, now they appear on TV advertising Restasis, Pradaxa and other drugs. Not to mention Goldman-Sachs or Lehmann or the horribly infected and affected Bank of America. The old doctor wonders WTF is going on?

Heidi St. Pierre is the mother of Ricky St. Pierre-the anti-hero of my newly published novel, "Best Served Cold."
