We have become a nation of bellyachers and excuse makers and I hate it.

Blame your spouse, boss, kids, parents, bank account, job, weather, society. ANYONE and ANYTHING but YOURSELF.

It's NEVER any one's fault anymore!

Recently Professor Gates of Harvard was arrested--and it couldn't POSSIBLY have been over the way he reacted (like a maniac, frankly) to the police officers. It MUST be that THEY were to blame.

That is just the latest high profile example of "It's not my fault" in action.

A case you might NOT hear about involves a pervert charged this week with 10 counts of possession of child pornography. Investigators found more than 1,000 images on his computer.

His excuse?

The cat.

You see, his cat would often climb up on the computer and IT must have hit just the right sequence of keystrokes in order to download 1,000 images of child porn.

So arrest the cat. The CAT is the pervert.

Nice try.

We had a fiesty cat once named Jinx. I would be in my radio studio and all of a sudden, my e-mail inbox would get ZAPPED. I was about to open an important one and BAM! It was gone to the abyss. I would frantically try to figure it out after it happened a couple of times.

Well, it turns out that Jinx the cat was walking across the keyboard of our bedroom computer and would step on a HOTKEY for Outlook that was a shortcut WE created to move my e-mails from one account into Outlook on occasion.

But in that case, WE created a one key shortcut to be able to do this. We never imagined the cat would walk on the keyboard and activate the process!

Come on now, though. A cat would have to FIND porn first...and of all the porn in the universe, it would have to be CHILD porn...then it would have to save it to the hard drive...by the THOUSANDS.

If anyone thinks I would believe that for a SECOND is meowing up the wrong tree.
