The Convenient Truth

I have a pet peeve, a complaint you might say. I know all of you are saying...Kat complaining? couldn't be..she never complains. Yah right we all know that is about as true as Clinton saying "I never had sexual relations with that girl".

So this is what has been bugging the hell out of me. Lately as I have been frequenting fast food restaurants, I have notice one of two things happening. One my order is never fucking right, and two the drive through operator dropping my food out the window.

Now this has become an every week occurance for me. On the few occassions that they do get my order right, they drop it between the car and the wall of the restaurant. Then look at me like, oops!, then go on to ask me if "I can reach that? I didn't know retrieving my food from under my car was part of whole "Have it your way experience". I'd rather HAVE my food in my fucking hand and my order right.

Now I've been on the phone with friends when this ordeal has happened and their response usually is what do you expect they are making minimum they aren't. At least not here in the ghetto. These people are making about $2 over minimum wage so it's not an issue of being underpaid.

So what is causing this recent onslaught of dropped in the rainpuddle cheeseburgers, and short one fry orders? Must be global warming...afterall I drive one of those gas guzzling environment wreaking vehicles with one person in the car 99% of the time.

It has to be global warming, Al Gore told me. Besides I have to believe him he says he created the internet you know, and I can't imagine my life without that snappy invention.

Wow I think this is a first, I mentioned both a former president, and a presidential wanna be in one that's scary.

Don’t Let No One Tell Ya You Ain’t Beautiful

Don’t let no one tell ya you ain’t beautiful
Even if you aren’t from the Detroit area or even a fan of Eminem this video is worth watching.

The video starts out with Eminem walking through the Michigan Central Station, long since abandoned but not forgotten. A building that’s sat abandoned for as many years as I can remember. I recall passing it frequently during my lifetime and every time thinking “God that building must have been beautiful”, and it was and always will be in more than one set of eyes.

It’s not like everyone gave up on it, many have showed interest in renovating and moving into it, but because of it’s primo location to the bridge over to Canada the owner won’t sell….oh by the way he happens to own the bridge too…just another politically fucked up problem with this city.

Inside my beloved Tiger Stadium, half torn down, the equipment ripping into the steel structure of a building that held so many fond memories for me… a sad sight to see. I will always love that place… And lastly the Packard Motor Car Company plant, just one of many business that lie in ruin in this city, and what I fear will sadly be the end result of many more plants throughout this state.

I know the song is not “about” Detroit, but it’s nice to see that we haven't been forgotten, when so many think we are just sitting on our assess begging for a handout…we’re just working folk trying to survive like everyone else…..
