America, let's make a deal and turn off the screamers -- whether democrat, republican, libertarian or whatever.  Simply switch to another station or find something else to do.  If all of us stop listening, maybe they'll shut up.  They're bound to when the money stops rolling in.

"That's easy for you to say," says Virginia.  "How much time do you spend watching TV or listening to radio?"

Hey, I was screaming the other day.  When I realized no one was listening, I felt like an idiot.  The mirror cracked.

I smell turkey soup.  Karen cooked one of our frozen flock yesterday.  The bones went into a stockpot.  Soup's especially welcome in cold weather.  Tonight's low may reach the teens.

"You're avoiding me," says Virginia.

Maybe it's time to toss her into the soup, maybe one of those self-help books ("Virginia's Soup for Civil America")?  I've heard they usually sell better than novels.


  1. When were you screaming? Huh, I don't think I've ever heard you scream. You should try it sometime, not at me though.

  2. When will they know were not listening?

  3. Comment 1: When were you screaming? When I was running in the woods after seeing the bear that escaped from Wall Street.

    Comment 2: When will they know we're not listening? Nielsen ratings, I suppose. Also, when people stop buying all the other things they sell.
