Tonawanda News — But politics aside, my main gripe is with the actual term “fiscal cliff.” It conjures up images of Obama and House Speaker John Boehner speeding down a desert road in a top-down convertible, holding hands ala Thelma and Louise.
First, this is a serious matter. Couldn’t we find a less childish way to refer to impending fiscal doom? Second, I dislike anything that makes me picture Obama and Boehner in drag.
So there you have it, this year’s un-Thanksgiving list. One thing I’m thankful for: The folks who read these things, whether they love it or hate it.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.Eric DuVall is the managing editor of the Tonawanda News. His column appears Wednesdays and Sundays. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
