Reality is Absurd

First, Mitt Romney says in the same serious tone he'd discuss gold tablets found in New York State that "Corporations are people, my friend." Given the Supremes (SCOTUS) said that corporations have human free speech right--I guess.

Next, Sesame Street must deny that Bert and Ernie are a same sex couple. Surprise, they are also not human! Or are they?

Given this is the new reality--when will I be allowed to marry Lindt for its dark chocolate? After all, corporation are now the same as humans legally---so why not?

    Understand that Bert and Ernie were seen in NYC. I keep looking in NYT for a wedding announcement.

    I was an accidental expatriate; love and marriage led me to it. One day I was a bandy-legged kid sitting atop my dogwood tree looking out of my small backyard world in 1950s New Jersey, wanting to move somewhere--anywhere, different. Next thing I knew my father had accepted a job in Houston TX. I was ecstatic, it was a foreign land in 1961 America. After high school graduation, my parents’ gave me a matched set of fawn-colored hardsided American Tourister luggage. Taking the hint, I went to college; well four colleges in five years--it was the 60s after all. Meeting a young hirsute anti-war, soon-to-be-Peace Corps volunteer, I fell in love. After finishing up college coursework for my degree, but before I even walking a graduation stage, I grabbed the paper airline ticket my boyfriend had sent me, my brand-new passport, and was off to the airport and Lima, Peru.
