“YOU KNOW, I CAME BACK FROM NAM, MAN, HAD A COUPLE SHAKY YEARS… I NEVER HIT THE STREET… LET ME TELL YA, THERE BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD”

.

The summary below is copied and pasted here exactly as it appears on the CBS.com/BlueBloods website. If you choose, and it is your choice, to read the summary below then I want you to understand that I am simply presenting it here as a service with no assumption that anyone really gives a good God damn enough to waste one moment of their precious and fleeting time on this planet to reading some garbage typed up by a drunk, and or stoned, corporate lackey who most likely doesn’t even watch the show they are describing.

“­After leaving a club late night, three privileged guys senselessly beat up and ultimately murder a homeless man in the alley behind the club. Danny and Jackie find out the victim is a former Marine and war hero and Danny finds himself determined to find the killer having been a marine himself. We learn from Kimberly, the victim’s former girlfriend, that a friend’s death during combat tormented Michael, causing drug and alcohol addiction which were responsible for his homelessness. Security cameras reveal one of the three suspects who comes clean and confesses that his boss Cassidy actually committed the murder with a baseball bat. Cassidy, a high profile real estate developer, is very cocky and has paid off the other suspect so no one can corroborate the story. In the end, Danny finds another homeless girl who was a witness and crucial evidence allowing him to convict Cassidy. Michael has a proper military funeral and is buried with his Silver Star which Cassidy had stolen. Meanwhile there is continued conflict between the Mayor and Frank; the Mayor leaking erroneous information that Frank is planning to run against him in order to get attention from the press. ­”

Upon entering the alley, where they eventually mercilessly beat to death a homeless Marine, one of the “three privileged guys” says to his pals, “I’d jump into the Hudson river to get away from those cows. How’d we lose all the hot chicks?” Then, once discovering the homeless Marine inside his makeshift shelter, another of the “privileged guys” asks the troubled veteran, in a faux posh accent, “Yo, are you pimping your crib?”. Sensing trouble the Marine stands up nervously as one of the “privileged guys” asks, “Hey, what’s the best part about dating the homeless?…hey, I’m asking you..you can drop them off wherever you want” to which the once proud Marine responds, “I don’t want any problems”. Unfortunately, his request was denied.

PREPARATION OF SALAD FOR ‘THE NIGHT SHIFT’

.

“The Night Shift?” you ask curious to know what kind of hi-jinx The President and Founder is up to now while also silently appreciative of the fact that he is taking care of himself by ‘eating healthy’. “Yes, The Night Shift”, I (The President and Founder) reply touching you gently on your shoulder while staring for too long into your eyes.

You do know ‘The Night Shift’, don’t you? No? What the fuck is wrong with you? Don’t answer that, I’m not interested. Here instead is a brief summation of the show as found on (the) Google:

A night-shift doctor at San Antonio Memorial, T.C. Callahan struggles to find the balance between saving lives and the hard reality of running a hospital. Joining him as he faces the sometimes dangerous task of running the emergency room are his best friend — who often shoulders the unenviable job of keeping T.C. out of trouble — Topher; former Army medic, Drew; lead physician — and T.C.’s ex-girlfriend — Jordan; and surgical resident, Paul. The rigors of the job may expose some personal weaknesses, but their shared drive to save their patients bonds them together in a tight-knit group.
