I have written nine double-spaced pages about the California budget crisis so far, and not one sentence is good enough to post on Scrine - except maybe the part where I playfully suggest we force our governor to read the book Catch-22.

I really should write a good sentence about my teenage son’s discovery of blue balls, the ensuing discussion involving cause and effect, life in general, and possible remedies for his discomfort, but I wouldn’t want to embarrass any young man at such a critical time in his life, particularly my own son, and besides, his wild exclamation at the end of our conversation was better than any sentence I could write on the topic—“What?! There’s a penalty for not masturbating?”

Catch 22 or MURDER :: OhNo789

The general thought is that if it doesn’t get better, then it is bound to get worse, though at present, unless someone dies, it really couldn’t get worse - however, and sadly, for it to get better anytime soon, a large sum of money would have to be come upon, and short of winning the lottery, or theft, a large inheritance seems ideal.
