    News Flash!
    Chelsea Clinton makes $75,000 for giving a speech! OK, so now we’ve all gone down the rabbit hole with Alice into Wonder land! More rather I think we have been living in Wonderland for a long time. In all seriousness folks did you ever question the value system in our society and our world? In a sense it is like living in a matrix of artificially contrived merit based on parentage or Hollywood grade looks or some other foolishness. Now I have nothing against Chelsea but I’m sure there are house wives in Montevideo that are more intelligent and would be able to converse on a higher level than her. On the other hand many are like they were born underwater but are never able to break the surface. They keep their nose to the grindstone, contribute to society, raise their children with integrity but just never make it. Our celebrity obsessed society attaches very little value to them.

    The facts
    This article is for the residences of Montevideo. Last week the Montevideo Police wrote that there was a man on a golf cart luring small children to his house. I can assure you that never happened and they also had the facts. I purchased a permit to drive a golf cart a few weeks ago when I moved to Monte. I also bought a dog license at the same time. The dog is a brindle-colored Chinese Pug. He attracts everyone as I drive around as I cannot walk him around. Kids and adults always come up to the cart as it quite uncommon to see a pug that color. It appears there is a need for news in Monte, but the truth is different than what was written. I would hope there would be larger crimes to write about than a child petting a Chinese Pug.
