How Are You Not Watching the State of the Union?

When Bush speaks, I don't listen. Tonight is his 6th State of the Union address. I will be not watching it while hosting our monthly poker game. It would have been better for me if they had scheduled the address for Thursday--then I could have not watched while taking the Jeopardy online contestant qualification. There would have been great satisfaction in participating in a ritual of knowledge while the Emperor of Ignorance was spouting his mantra of meaningless poo.

Some Americans will not see him speak because they are busy serving their fellow citizens--doctors and nurses, police officers and firefighters, volunteers in community centers. Others will be unable because of personal hardship--financial, medical or other.

If you are planning to miss the address, through choice or necessity, tell us about it in a comment to this blog post. I'm looking forward to seeing the cross-section of people who don't care or can't care.
