TheWeekholeView from the Appalachian Trail

Here, each hole starts on Wednesdays and this is what fell through this past week:
On Wednesday, April 3, a beautiful Argentine woman, Maria Belen Chapur, won the Republican primary nomination for a South Carolina House seat. Her particular charm may change the Republicans’ orthodoxy on what constitutes a marriage in God‘s eyes.

Thursday, April 4, the news all over the media was that in order to counteract the soaring price tag, which comes with the increased number of old demented people, the military will start a new program of mandatory drafting your grandparents. The old recruits would pilot the new generation of flying crafts over Pakistan and Afghanistan.

On Friday, April 5, The Huff Post invited our dear friend Dr. Elizabeth Hoppe to talk about the ethical implications of linking the price of airline tickets to the buyer’s weight.

On Saturday, April 6, non-Americans read about Facebook’s plans to improve their lifestyle …while on the phone.

On Sunday, April 7, Beyonce and Jay-Z sang Viva la vida loca in Havana.

On Monday, April 8, Ms Thatcher went to visit her good friend Ronald, and we wonder why couldn’t they reunite in the same place much earlier, perhaps as early as mid ’80s.

On Tuesday, April 9, the New York Times reported that many arthritis patients report an increase in libido and stamina after hip surgery. As if that’s on your mind when you are bed ridden with a bed pot under you.


  1. Nice bunch of stories – I’m glad you gave some attention to Mr. Sanford and his innovative guest worker program – I noticed he was getting back in, but I assumed she’d dumped him and politics was his rebound, nice that they’re still together (or is she running / hiking without him?)

    I thought NY Times had done pretty well with an Op-Ed headline (I only read the headlines) on Ms. Thatcher leaving behind a less equal, less civil Britain, but you cut right to the point – she was comfortable enough (as they mostly seem to be) sending young people to kill and die, dying should be an old person’s game, at least she (finally) left.

    Dying and killing, well, with the demented, I guess what they don’t know won’t hurt them, another blow against ageism, “mentalism” (take away their cigarettes, give them a gun, or plane…) and a big +1 USA for thinking outside the boxes!

    And, hey(!) I have arthritis, do you think a hip replacement might help, never mind.  In any case, what is one supposed to think about laying on the bed pot?
