Why do they hang on?
I remember a few years ago my wife and I were disappointed as we listened to the Righteous Brothers sing (You’re my) Soul and Inspiration. Bill Medley couldn't quite get that high note and that song required it. I remember an old Willie Mays tripping as he rounded third base. I hated to see this graceful athlete go out that way.
Monday I was sitting in the Firestone lobby waiting to get my truck's oil changed and I heard a familiar voice coming from the counter. I looked back to see who it was, and instantly recognized that it was an old friend, so I got up to greet him. He’s three years my senior, so I asked him what was wrong with his vehicle but he said he was filling out a job application because he had heard that Firestone had lost four mechanics. I didn't question him and I'm not judging him but that still left me wondering.
I don't even like Newt Gingrich but I feel sorry for him because his ego won't let him make a graceful exit. Mike Barnacle busted out laughing this morning on "Morning Joe" because he imagined Newt addressing the breakfast crowd at some cafe and the customers whispering to each other” who is that guy and what's he talking about?"
Have you seen this funny video about Rick Santorum presidential exit?
