The Friday Review
A Little Politics...
I watched the debate last night. Without going into everyone, I'll just say that Romney looked good to me. Smooth, polished, attractive, in short, Presidential. If America sees this guy, he could be our next President.
John McCain on the other hand wore a terrible tie. It looked like a candy cane around his neck. So, I think I can now refer to him as John McCandycain. Oh yeah, he was tough on Bush and his handling of the Iraq war, which I am sure will really anger the Republican bloggers who see dissent and criticism of President Bush as tantamount to treason.
Speaking of Republican bloggers, my friend over at Chatterbox Chronicles, Little Miss Chatterbox, has been given a chance to be an Internet radio host. You can read all about here. She is pretty connected politically in the Show Me State, that's Missouri for you nickname challenged people. While that may not seem like a big deal for folks in sunny California, Missouri will be a huge battleground state in the 2008 election and I am sure she will have plenty to say. I hope you tune her in occasionally. She is totally on the right side of the ledger, but I don't hold that against her.
Here is what I am listening to today. A little Shakira...
And a little Third Day
Talk about sad. St. Louis Cardinal pitcher, Josh Hancock, was killed the other day in an early morning traffic accident. Now word comes that he was speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, drunk, and marijuana was found in his vehicle. When will people learn that they are not invincible? I too had a problem with drinking so I am aware of the disconnect that happens. But that does not excuse someone. If you are going to drink, get someone else to drive!
Finally something good in the NBA. The Golden State Warriors upset the Dallas Mavericks. We used to see this every so often in the old days of the five game series, but this is the first big upset in an opening round seven game series. Beautiful.
Feliz Cinco de Mayo!In our continuing celebration of Cinco de Mayo, here is a little more history from cartoonist Lalo Alcarez. Enjoy and have a great weekend.
