Last dance with Mary Jane...

Captain America is dead. Britney Spears may be the anti-Christ. Scoot’s guilty. With so much material, how is it I had so much trouble trying to think of something write about?

Perhaps it’s because I could give a rat’s fanny about what Ms. Spears is doing with her time, I’m not entirely convinced Scooter’s going to prison and the only Captain that matters in my life works best in a pina colada. But then I saw an article on, and I knew I found my muse.

On Monday, CNN reported that police in Texas, who were searching for stolen goods, found a video that appears to show teenagers convincing a 2-year-old and his 5-year-old older brother to smoke some pot.

Yes, you read that right. A toddler and his kindergarten-aged brother were allegedly shown how to smoke a doobie.

What is going on in this world?

Bruce Ure, director of public safety for the Watauga Police Department, told CNN that the video showed the teenagers laughing while the kids stumbled around. These kids should be watching Blue’s Clues, not getting the munchies for cheerios and apple juice.

The article said the teenagers are being charged with third-degree felony charges.

We live in a scary world. Nuclear bombs are falling into the hands of lunatics in power. KFed is starting to look like the lesser of the two evils for Sean Preston and Sutton Pierce (or is it Jayden James). Did anyone ever figure out what they named babe #2? But nukes and war don't scare me nearly as much as the fact that someone in this world thinks it is OK to teach a toddler how to smoke a joint.

We're worried about terrorists from other countries invading our country and ruining our lives, but maybe we should be more concerned with what's going on in our own backyard.

That's the scary stuff.
