Uncle Blogsy prefers not to comment on international news. Uncle Blogsy is a frippery sort of fellow who prefers to ponder why the cover of Rafferty and the Gold Dust Twins is oriented sideways. OR, if you wish to be generous, carrot kolatch, Uncle Blogsy prefers to pick up big things by small handles.
After all, so many little things happen every day without salute. People wash down the sidewalks, people feed their children, people drive to work and resist the temptation to smash into you when you cut them off at the light. And no one notices these little things. Daily chores are performed without fanfare and usually without any note of gratitude.
So on May 2, 2011, I pause for a few seconds to recognize those people who take out the garbage.
