Fields’ Random Thoughts #31: Too Late For Career Change?





We are all titillated by the case of the Club Madonna underage nude dancer.

The Herald’s January 12th story mentioned that nude dancers averaged $79,000 a year and that the Florida Bar told the reporter that the average starting salary for lawyers was $55,000.

Hummmh?  Maybe if I knocked off a few pounds and got ripped like I was in high school…..?

The “Bridgegate” scandal in New Jersey does raise a few thoughts.

  1.  Apparently the last living people in the world to learn that the “E” in E-mail stands for “Evidence” were all working for Chris Christie.
  2.  While we sort out “What did the Guv know and when did he know it”, you have to wonder what kind of atmosphere made his key aids think this was A-O.K.?
  3. Wouldn’t a traffic study require you to record the traffic patterns when the traffic was typical?
  4. As is almost always the case, the cover-up gets you in more trouble than the original bad act.  That said it’s going to be interesting to see what Christie said or did last summer when the traffic jams raised a public hue and cry.
  5. The New Jersey legislature and the U.S. Attorney are both looking into this and will be demanding a jillion documents.  That invariably uncovers things that they initially did not know about.  Think Watergate and Whitewater which dragged on for years. Think 2016.


What Would Jesus Do….With $180 Million?

That’s a question, or some variation on that question, that conservative rich Catholics are answering.

The latest is Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone, who is chairing a $180 million fund to spruce up Manhattan’s St. Patrick’s.

Langone complained to Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York City that a number of Catholic millionaires are offended by the Pope’s remarks that capitalism is a soulless system that crushes the poor and the working-class.

Dolan warned that it may cause them to withhold their contributions to the building fund.

That’s their answer. “We ain’t giving it to a commie Pope”.

Here’s a more basic issue.

Hey Cardinal Timmy!

If Jesus comes back and sees you using the $180 million to satisfy your “edifice complex” rather than use it to feed and clothe the poor, how are you going to explain that away?.

    While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.

    8 When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. 9 “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”

    10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 The poor you will always have with you,[a] but you will not always have me. 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”

    That’s what I want– a “Wall Street” Jesus who is pissed off that Dolan pissed away the $180 mil on the endless poor when he could have been building monuments to him.

    After-all, the Pharaohs got the Pyramids (Think Egyptian welfare to work program for the Jews) and they weren’t even real Gods
