A deep freeze has gripped Junebug Holler. This means that Junior and most of the other nuts have confined their activities to the indoors. The rest of us have enjoyed the quiet. The Junebug Cafe and Internet Lounge is another matter.
The locals still gather every morning at Prudy's to discuss the news of the day. Of course, there has been much gnashing of teeth over the collapse of the mortgage, finance, and job markets. Now, I'm pretty sure that most of the loudest complainers have no mortgage, no investments, and no job. That won't stop the bitching, though.
I've been holding my own thoughts on the economy in reserve. My predictions are rather dire, and they might just push the gang right over the edge. I'll compose them for posting on this here blog, and you folks can read them in a day or two. A few of the local residents can read and will eventually find out, but they are the ones less likely to cause a panic.
I'm off to church shortly so I have to go. More Holler news coming soon!
So, who the heck is Stevie Joe? Well, for starters, I’m a damn genius, but I was not always so. I was born poor and stupid in Junebug Holler, a place so small that nobody has ever heard of it before (and we like it that way). Seeking to correct this stupidity, I embarked on a rigorous course of education.
I’ve read the Great Books and studied the world’s cultures and religions. I immersed myself in the sciences and followed history’s greatest thinkers. I took employment with a large Multi-National Corporation (MNC) so they would pay for me to travel the world and see how others lived first-hand.
I have objective proof of my mental prowess. I scored a perfect 20 out of 20 questions on the Reader’s Digest IQ test. Technically, their scoring guide said that I got one question wrong. You decide. It asked what Aristotle, Shakespeare, Locke, Voltaire, Poe, and Nietzsche all had in common. I answered that they all had an “e” in their names.
So, anyway, I’m willing to share my gift with humanity, and I offer this here blog as a vessel to carry my wisdom to the world.
