First, I thought it was a Louisiana thing. Then later I believed it was a hood thing. Then I just gave up. I wondered why people always pluralize a drivers license. Here’s what I mean. When you go pick up your license some people say, “did you get them?” When someone can’t find their license they’ll say, “I can’t find them.” Why do we take a single item and make it more than one. I don’t get it. I thought everyone else was crazy. Then I was at a state office and I noticed a pamphlet. It read see ‘some’ id. It also makes it plural in my book. Why do we refer to identification as more than one object? The Insite would like to hear legitimate justification so I can move on with my life!
SHE WAS SO FLY IN HER LEXUS!
I was at the stop light on the southwest freeway at Weslayan Monday morning. I looked to my left and noticed a senior citizen behind the wheel. It was a lady who had to be in her 70′s driving a very cool car. It was one of those Lexus sport coupes type cars. First, I couldn’t believe she was still driving but on top of that she was fly. I say way to go Grandma. She was just keeping it real. I wanted to race her but I think she would leave me in the dust with her fancy blue Lexus!
MAYBE THE GOVERNOR’S CONFESSION HAD A HELLUVA PUNCHLINE!
I was watching the press conference out of South Carolina when Republican Governor Mark Sanford admitted to an extramarital affair with another woman. During that press conference I noticed a female in the background who was constantly smiling and laughing. I wondered what was she thinking and doing. We have a Governor admitting to a bombshell and she is in the back laughing. There was another female just over the African American female’s shoulder who was also laughing and smiling. The only thing I can come up with is they knew they were live on television and they may have been communicating with someone watching. Did you notice that at all?
Gov. Mark Sanford has always painted himself as a family man, a red state conservative whose annual Christmas cards featured pictures of his wife and their four sons.
So when he tearfully confessed a yearlong affair with a woman he visited on a secret trip to Argentina, reaction ranged from embarrassment over his behavior to pity for his family. But there was a common theme: surprise that the man named as a possible 2012 GOP presidential contender had been cheating on his wife.
“I was shocked, shocked,” said Tom Daly, 42, a magazine editor in Charleston. “First of all he’s a Republican golden boy and he’s a strict, staunch conservative. I’m so shocked. It was something I did not expect.”
Daly called it a blemish on South Carolina, and Ellen Brady, a computer network specialist from Charleston, wondered why it had to happen in her state.
“We’re all mortified, absolutely mortified,” she said. “It’s splashed all over the news.”
Gerald Walker, a 19-year-old student at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, said Sanford should not have told staffers he was hiking the Appalachian Trail when he was actually in Argentina for seven days. His spokesman repeated the lie to reporters, leading to several days of confusion over his whereabouts.
“He shouldn’t have lied to us. He should have been up straight,” Walker said. “It’s very embarrassing for someone in a leadership role that we are supposed to respect, especially me being a young guy.”
Judith Thompson, 66, who works at the South Carolina Nurses Association across the street from the governor’s mansion, said she was concerned for the families involved.
“It’s a very sad moment for all the people in this state,” she said.
Stephanie Byrd, 20, a University of South Carolina student selling Italian ice from a street cart, also called the affair sad.
“It seems to happen to a lot of movie stars so it’s not like it’s surprising, but it’s kind of disappointing for someone who is supposed to help you through things and represent you,” she said.
South Carolina women’s basketball recruit Kelsey Bone, meanwhile, laughed about the where-is-he-now nature of the news in the state she has called home for just three weeks.
“First he was on the Appalachian Trail, now he’s in Argentina,” said Bone, 17, from Houston. “And I was like, ‘How do you get the two mixed up?’ These past few weeks, there’s never a dull moment.”
