Well, poor old Ronald Reagan. Finally gone after that long bout with Alzheimer s. While he was not my favorite president of all time, at least he was quite a character. As is Nancy. If you haven t seen the Showtime movie The Reagans, with James Brolin and Judy Davis as the First Couple, it s out on video now and can be rented and paints a very interesting picture of the couple. And with President Reagan s passing, my email has been on fire. No, not with people sending me notes warning me against making fun of him, which I wouldn t do at this point. I can t even joke about him sending notes to Nancy addressed to My Mamma Poo. I would, but it would be too hypocritical, because just this morning, while drinking my first cup of coffee, I shouted out, Oh! My Crackpipe needs a big, fat spanking, doesn t he?! I was referring to one of my angelfish, who, in very uncharacteristic fashion, lunged at my algae sucker, Liplock, during the morning feeding frenzy. So how can I make fun of Ronald Reagan calling Nancy Nancy Pants and My Mamma Poo, when I am verbally threatening to spank an angelfish named Crackpipe? It s just not fair. But back to that email. The reason it s on fire is because I have found the most extraordinary website and registered myself on it. I don t know exactly how I found it but its called ConservativeMatch.com and it is fabulous. It s one of those online personals/dating/meet the right person kind of thing, and when I say right, I mean, right. This is where very conservative Christian men and women network and seek friendship, romance, and more with those of their same ilk. You have to fill out this questionnaire, the answer to which make up your profile, and it is great fun. Trying my best to create a profile that all of the staunchly conservative women out there would find appealing, I listed by birthday 6/6/66 and my height at 6-feet, 6-inches tall. I let them know that I NEVER drink or smoke, ALWAYS vote Republican, and listed George W. Bush as my favorite politician of all time. My affiliations include the NRA, Republican Party, and several others. There s a lot more, but no time to mention them all. Well, then the notes started coming. From a man! A man who said his job would likely lead him to cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles or (ack!) San Francisco. He was glad to see my profile, he said, because it was good to share with someone the need for more Christian conservative women out there! He was kind of depressed because he lived in California, which he referred to as being stuck in the middle of Libville. He didn t like California because of all the foreigners and libs and gays. My kind of guy! But then when the news came out that Ronald Reagan his idol had died, he was quite beside himself. Mind you, I never got far enough into registering on this site to be able to return notes, but old what s his name in Libville has found a friend in me! I guess I ll just have to write him back soon and let him know that he s not alone out there in the world, thinking that all the foreigners and gays and libs are bringing civilization to a new low. But in the meantime, check out the site, and then take a look here at some of what s going on around town this week. Tonight, the Emerald Theatre Company s production of Out Tonight 3: Welcome to the Cabaret opens at TheatreWorks. Rockabilly wildmen The Dempseys are playing at the Sunset Atop the Madison party on the rooftop of the Madison Hotel. And Paul Birch and Mendoza Line are at the Hi-Tone.
