This is as good – sorry, I’ll start again: this is as woefully inappropriate as Jooolya being made Chairperson of an outfit striving to improve education…
Former Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm has been snatched up by a university in California to lecture on jobs growth. Weird, since Michigan’s job growth under Jen resembled the Titanic post-iceberg.
Weirder still is the widespread rumour I just created that Ms Granholm at first rebuffed the university in hope that her services would be accpeted elsewhere. Well, at least American Idol still retains a few standards.
This phenomenon called ‘soclal media’ has opened all sorts of doors inside people’s heads. The details our parents wouldn’t have shared with the neighbours are today put up online and shared with potentially millions of total strangers.

It’s distasteful and appalling. Anyhow, I’ve got a bladder infection.
