Hallelujah ! (new Blog for Nov 28/16)

Bathsheba-1

With the recent passing of Leonard Cohen I was reminded that he actually wrote one of my favorite songs which is called “Hallelujah.” The song is about King David who even though he was one of God’s favorites and was even strong enough to defeat Goliath he was no match for Bathsheba. One evening while gazing out upon his domain from the roof of his palace there in the moonlight he noticed Bathsheba bathing on the roof of the next building. Unable to resist her charms he rushed over to join her. lord knows what happened next except to say that soon thereafter this almost perfect man in thought and deed sent her husband to the front lines where he perished in battle. David then took Bathsheba as his wife in battle which probably produced the wisest king of all, Soloman.
My point in all of this is that no matter how strong, powerful, nor how connected a man may be, there’s probably a beautiful woman out there somewhere thinking that it may be time to bring him to his knees. Just ask Sampson! (hear Leonard’s story as told in song by clicking on the link below)

Speaking of ratings, they consist of the listening habits of mostly passive people whereas radio is programmed and sold by “alpha” types. I wonder how that’s working out for everybody?
 
Seeing as most comedians are left handed maybe I should give up on this radio thing and just tell jokes.
