What do you say, Michigan, is it time to trade Mitch Albom?

    It’s now been about 30 hours since I’ve eaten, and 20 since I’ve left the small area of my home where I’ve been quarantined, and the flu is finally beginning to pay dividends. I’m starting to have brilliant visions. The most recent one involves Mitch Albom. It occurred to me that, if I could somehow raise a million dollars, I could afford to put billboards in cities across America asking, “What will you give us for Mitch Albom?” I’m not sure what his trade value is on the open market at this point, but I’ve got to think that some state in the south with a rapidly aging population might see him as a commodity. The question is, what could a sate like Arizona possibly give us in return?

        I’d be good with trading him for an asshole to be named later.

        Death really wasn’t so bad. To be honest, I kind of welcomed it after all of those Tuesdays with Mitch.

        “Oh so sensitive and caring” Mitch crossed the picket line during the Detroit Free Press strike, stabbing his co-workers in the back. He is, and will be to the day he dies, a low-life SCAB.

        If you didn’t hate him already, check out this quote on gay marriage from his last column in the Free Press: “In the end, folks just don’t want to feel threatened or bullied. Many gays have long felt bullied by society; many heterosexuals now feel bullied by a new ideology.”

        I’d accept a carton of smokes and a bag of glass beads.

        The capacity of his head is enormous. I think I could fit two of mine into one of his.

        A better billboard: “How many marbles could you fit in Mitch Albom’s head?”

        Funny you should mention him. It was just announced today that he got another movie deal.

        “Warner Bros. has acquired Mitch Albom’s ‘The First Phone Call from Heaven’ for the big screen. Set in Michigan, the novel tells the story of a small town whose citizens start receiving calls from the afterlife….”

        I’d be happy with a pile of smallpox blankets for Mitch.

        Mitch Albom’s advice to a black girl rejected from college: “…if she really wants to change things, she can create a two-parent, high-standards home for her own children…”

        He was on CBS Sunday Morning this weekend with Jane Pauley.

        Pauley: “You write books, you lecture, and in your spare time, you are a saint (laughs). You notice people who need help and you find ways to help them.”

        Mitch: “That’s accurate, what you just said. I notice people who need help, and I try to find the time to help them.”
