First!

Speaking of firsts, where’s Rabbit been?

And speaking of firsts again, I got written up at work for my negative, distrustful, and hostile attitude. I’m a disappointment.

Some rain in the forecast today. Not enough to create any new opportunities tho for Fatwa.

I was thinking yesterday, that a Hillary presidency might not be the worst thing that could happen to our country in the long run. Four more years of an incompetent corrupt power-hungry liberal might be just what we need to really rile people up and push through meaningful change. A bitter pill to swallow though.

Good morning from Happy Larryville, GN!

Hai, Sven!

Sad how your wanting to do a good job in the face of endemic bungling incompetence and calling-out carp the way you see it got you pegged as a “troublemaker”.

===============

Read earlier that another one of Atlanta’s Finest got a fabulous plea deal after “accidentally” shooting someone in the face.

(He attempted to us his weapon to break a suspect’s driver’s side window and “oopsie”.)

The money quote:

Jackson faced a felony indictment, but in a plea bargain he agreed to give up his state certification and never work as a police officer in Georgia again.

“This was just an accidental discharge. And of course he’s sorry. He had no intention whatsoever and I think the state realized that,” said defense attorney Holly Hughes.

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven the First and Fatwa!

Sven -- sorry about the disciplinary action, sorrier still for the carpy work environment. I’ve been talking a lot lately with my friend in South Dakota and his work travails. He’s trying to fix problems, but management doesn’t seem interested. Process controls are either a joke or non-existent. Everyone has an excuse and my friend is the bad guy for bringing things up.

Fatwa -- the system has to take care of their own.

Fatwa — the system has to take care of their own.

Yep…and don’t you dare cross that Thin Blue Line:

A federal lawsuit filed by the former head of Atlanta’s crime lab accused the Fulton County district attorney and the Atlanta chief of police of being lawbreakers who acted to secure convictions at the expense of justice.

Donald Mikko pulls no punches in the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court. In it he accused District Attorney Paul Howard and Chief George Turner and one of Howard’s top prosecutors of obstruction of justice and racketeering.

The lawsuit contends Howard lobbied Turner to fire Mikko because the crime lab chief agreed to testify for the defense in a Florida trial and provided an evidentiary report contradicting the prosecution.

Atlanta PD really aspires to emulate Chicago’s own armed, badged, unionized, corrupt bully boys in blue.

Never thought I’d come to agree with NWA re the police, but I mostly have.

GOOD AFTERNOON/EVENING EVERYONE!

Greetings from brisk and beautiful Bountiful.

I sure do hope y’all are having a pre-cancerous day, ’cause you just know I am.

I went to the dermo yesterday and I appear to be losing the pre-cancer battle. I gots me a little over 30 new pre’s since September. They froze them for now.

Next week I get a new cream that is supposed to target only those cells and leave the normal ones alone. The dermo said that those cells would basically implode and ooze -- can’t wait for that!

I’m to use it on a limited area and if I can tolerate it, I can use it all over, but one section of my body at a time.

Paddy, have you heard about this?

Hey, Jerry!
No, I haven’t. It sounds like something I should check out.

Hiya Paddy. Yep, it’s just the thing for pink people like us.

Does it come in the industrial size, suitable for bathing in?

Sorry, it only comes in a tube but you can put it anywhere you want. Based on their detailed probing of my epidermis, you can even put it where the sun don’t shine.

Fluorouracil:

This medication is used on the skin to treat pre-cancerous and cancerous skin growths. Fluorouracil belongs to a class of medications known as anti-metabolites. It works by blocking the growth of abnormal cells that cause the skin condition.

How to use fluorouracil topical

Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using this medication and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Use this medication as directed by your doctor. Before you apply this medication to the skin, clean the affected area and dry well. Wait 10 minutes, then apply a small amount of medication to the affected skin, using just enough to cover the area with a thin film. Wash your hands immediately after applying this medication, even if you have used gloves.

The treated area may become unsightly during treatment and in some cases for several weeks after treatment.

Side Effects

Skin irritation, burning, redness, dryness, pain, swelling, tenderness, or changes in skin color may occur at the site of application. Eye irritation (e.g., stinging, watering), trouble sleeping, irritability, temporary hair loss, or abnormal taste in the mouth may also occur.

If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.

This medication must not be used during pregnancy. It may harm an unborn baby. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, inform your doctor immediately.

Sven, sorry about your negative, distrustful, and hostile attitude. Perhaps listening to soothing tapes of Barack or Hillary would help?

Fatwa, sorry about your negative, distrustful, and hostile attitude toward Georgia’s finest -- and people in general. Perhaps listening to soothing tapes of Barack or Hillary would help?

Paddy, sorry about your friend’s negative, distrustful, and hostile attitude in South Dakota. Perhaps listening to soothing tapes of Barack or Hillary would help?

I can’t think of anything that would take one’s mind off of one’s troubles more than that.

Hai, Jerry!

Hope you can tolerate the oozy-implodey cream so you won’t have to keep visiting Mr. / Ms. Freeze.

Also, I think you repeatedly misspelled “seething”.

Howdy Fatwa,

I hope all is well in the South Land and that Mrs. Arbuckle is doing well.

Yesterday evening I developed a huge blister over an area that was frozen on my hand. I was concerned that it would break while I was sleeping. It didn’t, but this morning I noticed a drop of clear fluid on top of the blister -- so I squeezed it. A tiny stream of fluid shot at least three feet in the air. Now the blister refills itself about every hour so that I can continue to see how far I can get it to travel. I’m amused.

Oh, did I mention that I may or may not have broken my wrist? Gotta get that checked out also. ‘Ol Jerry falls down a lot. Sunday before last I was at the gym and had just stepped out of the shower when I slipped and fell on my back. Buck nekkid on my back. Anyway, I must have put out my left hand to break my fall. Also, I have a bruise almost on the top of my head. I’ve got to start wearing a GoPro to figure out what (other than drinking) I’m doing wrong -- or a helmet.

Plus, being left handed, this is seriously cutting into my self love-making.

Thoughts and prayers, Jerry, and echoing Paddy about getting the wrist looked at. Do it now!

On the job side of life, I have never hated a job more than this one. There are plenty of things that I will own up to where I should have been written up or fired, but not this. It’s like being a kid again and going to the Principal’s office.

Based on some other conversations with some other people, my hours onsite are being examined as well as my internet usage. Yes, I admit it. When I get bored I will check out the usual sites including this one.

So it’s just a matter of time and in all honesty, I don’t give a shit.

I will take your advice though, Jerry, and am now ordering audio copies of Dreams From My Father and Hard Choices--which really sounds like it should have been the title of Bill’s book.

Are you going to patch them in to the PA system at work?
