After divorcing myself from a particularly ugly forum exchange yesterday I suddenly feel the freedom of not having to deal with grumpy people anymore. It was quite inspirational. Apparently I said something bad somewhere and that means I am a bad, bad, dog. So to save my sanity (with for goodness sake no Sean Hannity), I went back to happy and decided we needed an army to patrol the Island against angry people. I'll call it the Society Against Grumps for now while waiting on a better acronym.
South Padre is supposed to be a happy place and to heck with all this contention and negativity. Instead of troops of elderly retired people checking for "bad behavior" let's parade the streets and beaches with clowns, bicycles, strolling musicians, buskers, surfers carrying banners, and merry maids throwing flower pedals. We've done it before and will do it again. The funny thing is that even the grumpy people think it is fun.
In these gloomy, horrible times of wars, economy, and elections, it is time to get a break every now and then to have some fun, help others have fun, and Unlitter.
