Empty soda cans rattle against each other under the seat and half a bag of cheese-flavored popcorn spills onto the floorboard of the minivan. Wheat fields blur past the window a mile a minute and telephone poles tick the slow pace of time like a traveler's metronome. Magnetic checkers have lost their charm and the batteries are dead in the Gameboy. There are neck cramps and the sticky halitosis of a snack food diet makes small talk quite avoidable. The question is coming. Are we there yet?

Question: Do you think things are going well in Iraq?
Following Schwarzenegger's election many appear suddenly cognizant of the moral relativism of conservatives. Regular readers of this column are now quietly smiling while the less perceptive discover what they have known for some time.

I have been thinking lately about wasted lives. The Freddie Fender song about "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" has been running through my head.
Another area newspaper recently ran a column on how telemarketers aren't evil.

I'm sitting here reading the bold black letters over and over again: "Your home is at risk if you do not keep up with everyone else." The line is such an amusing non-sequitur and it tickles me more with every read. Is it a note from the bank, the creditors, a nasty surprise in the mailbox? No, don't be alarmed, it's just my brand new official Radiohead anorak (or rain slicker if you like), that I purchased at their concert at HiFi Buys Ampitheatre one week ago. This bright yellow anorak (or windbreaker if you prefer), is the memento I have left to cherish my favorite musical group in the whole wide world and their incredible concert event that is already fading into hazy shades of gray.
Perhaps it is time again for me to point out that it is not the job of the media to tell you good news.
When I was a child I was constantly asking questions.
