BOO! Since Halloween is quickly approaching, I thought I would write about a deadly disease that’s scarier than the Ebola virus — a disease that has infected hundreds of millions of people worldwide. While everyone should be afraid of this disease, very few people seem to care about it. If they had full knowledge of its devastating consequences, they would be petrified and would wear the equivalent of a hazmat suit to protect themselves from the disease.
It’s that time of year again. Halloweenis right around the corner and a lot of people are scared. Our so-called leaders walk around as though they are zombieswhose purpose is to destroy our nation. Every decision they make is the exact opposite of what a reasonable, rational person would decide. What’s even scarieris the sheep-like behavior of the masses who wander about, clueless as to what’s going on around them.
Last week while I was on my way to a court hearing, I stepped onto an elevator to go up to the floor where the courtroom was located. When I got on the elevator, there were five other individuals inside, one of whom was talking on her cell phone. As the elevator doors closed, the woman said, “I’m in an elevator so if I lose you, I’ll call you back.”
There’s a scene in the movie Ocean’s Eleven, when after being released from prison, Danny Ocean (portrayed by George Clooney) tracks down his ex-wife, Tess (portrayed by Julia Roberts). Although Danny is still in love with Tess, she no longer has any feelings for him and is romantically involved with Terry Bennedict, a wealthy, ruthless owner of three casinos in Las Vegas.
