The whimsical world of Mike Masterson

Posted By on Wed, Dec 1, 2010 at 2:19 PM

A saddened Mike Masterson and his wife took a derive around Fayetteville one day last week. Actually, they left feeling happy - according to his November 26 column in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - but sadness soon swept over them as they drove by all of the “ . . . empty businesses that only a few years back held popular businesses.”

The saddened columnist then listed some of the once-thriving businesses. There was only one conclusion that Comrade Masterson could come to for his gentle readers:

No doubt the brunt of what our polarized and politicized elected government has inflicted upon us is hitting with full force.

Oh, Mike, you sage, you!

Except, dude, some of these businesses have been closed for years - long before the current administration that you like to whine so much about was even elected.

And Perry’s Jewelers?

Oh, Mike, do you actually read newspapers anymore? Perry’s Jewelers is shutting down because the owner is retiring.

Please, someone, if you see Mike, give him a hug and let him know that not everything is Obama’s fault.

It is fatal to let any dog know that he is funny, for he loses his head and starts hamming it up. - P.G. Wodehouse

  • Football for UA Little Rock

    Andrew Rogerson, the new chancellor at UA Little Rock, has decided to study the cost of starting a major college football team on campus (plus a marching band). Technically, it would be a revival of football, dropped more than 60 years ago when the school was a junior college.
  • Turn to baseball

    When the world threatens to get you down, there is always baseball — an absorbing refuge, an alternate reality entirely unto itself.
  • Another Jesus

    If you follow the logic of Jason Rapert and his supporters, God is very pleased so many have donated money to rebuild a giant stone slab with some rules on it. A few minutes on Rapert's Facebook page (if he hasn't blocked you yet) also shows his supporters believe that Jesus wants us to lock up more people in prison, close our borders to those in need and let poor Americans fend for themselves for food and health care.
