In the immortal words of Yello...Oh Yeah?

In the midst of economic uncertainty, fear for personal and public safety, the insane babbling of our Idiot-In-Chief -- which, by the way, if you watched his press conference Thursday night it was shocking to see how the man just could not understand at all why anyone would question going to war with Iraq…he is so entrenched in his own little world objectivity is an alien concept to him -- and general global unpleasantness apparently Hooters Airlines is the solution that will make everything all right?

Oh please.

However, if it weren't for Hooters Air, we would have never gotten this wonderfully snide quote:

"I expect Hooters Air to bounce along until they go bust," (Henry) Harteveldt (an airline analyst for Forrester Research in San Francisco) said.

Linguistic cues

On a side note a friend of mine celebrated his birthday yesterday and was recounting the previous evening's drunken tomfoolery. At one point he said, "Apparently we went to The Exit and I got pretty loaded."

I responded, "If you have to qualify your memory with the phrase ‘apparently’ then in fact you were really loaded.” You know, since "apparently" would denote the experience of someone recounting the previous evening's activities to the celebrant under the correct assumption said celebrant wouldn't have any clear memories of his activities.

Does that make sense or am I just thinking too much too early and not allowing my internal editor to weed out stupid observations?
