Democrats to Hillary...quit now. Wink.Wink.
Everybody but Rush Limbaugh seems to want Hillary Clinton to quit the
race for the Democratic nomination for President. Limbaugh has been
running what he calls “Operation Chaos”. The thinking behind his insurgent campaign is the longer Hillary stays in the race, the more time and money Barack Obama has to spend running against her and the less he has to strengthen his position against John McCain.
The man most qualified to be America's first Black President.and why
it will never happen.
Am I saying Barack Obama won't be President? Not at all, the man I'm
talking about had his chance at the Presidency eliminated by his link
to the invasion of Iraq. I'm talking about Colin Powell, soldier,
statesman and reluctant warrior.
I know both sides think they're right in this ongoing debate.but I'm taking a stand.
I'm a Mac guy. I have many friends, (most of them in fact) who are PC people, and I love them, they're like misguided children. They like what they're used too, and like youngsters.sometimes they don't know enough to know what they don't know. As a result, when it's time to get a new computer, they usually get another PC.but not all of them. Slowly, sometimes stealthily, even the diehard PC owners drop by the Apple store, or take a turn behind the keyboard of a friend's iMac or MacBook, and then.life is never quite the same.
LA's national treasure.for fifty great years
He’s a guy most of us take for granted, because he goes about his business in such a professional and unobtrusive manner, deliberately not drawing attention to himself. But he does this very special job in a way no one else ever has…because no one else can. He’s a poet, a historian, and a storyteller…making it all sound as easy as chatting with your neighbor over the fence.
Ten other things to do at Ten P.M.
OK it's after Ten again and you've just realized I'm no longer on the News, and if you got this far you know why. So what else can you do at this hour? Well I have a few options.
So, how do you like that SUV now...sucker?
It's time to say what a lot of people have been thinking for years. I hate SUV's, always have. They're too damn big, too damn dirty and too damn dangerous. The only good thing about gas prices moving towards $4 a gallon is that more and more SUV's are being traded for cleaner, safer vehicles...and fewer new buyers name the big gas-guzzlers as their first choice.
The McCain "Affair".
With the publication of the NY Times article on John MCCain’s dubious relationship with an attractive Washington lobbyist, it’s time to examine the man and his candidacy.
With the failure of talk radio’s efforts to hand the GOP nomination to Rudy Guliani and Mitt Romney, both of whom would have been shredded like a White House memo in November…
The problem with Religion.
Americans are very religious people, but there’s a big difference in
religion here and in the rest of the world. Generally, the most
religious countries are the poorest countries with the US being a
dramatic exception. Americans are religious and rich at the same time…
and that’s a rare coincidence. Read
An unpleasant environment for the EPA
What most Americans didn't see today (and won't see tonight on their
local news) was a struggling attempt by Stephen Johnson, the
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator to explain why he ruled
again California's request of a waiver of the Clean Air Act (in order
for the state to implement tougher greenhouse regulations than the
federal standard). Read
I'm not a conservative (and neither are you).
We're not liberals either. My point is
this, major media and talk-radio in particular try to oversimplify our
political views. But people (and especially Americans), don't fit neatly
into those boxes. My contention is there there are very few
card-carrying liberals or conservatives out there, the vast majority of
us don't live lives that are that simple.

Useful TV News Terms
Here's an explanation of terms frequently used in TV News...
Live shot...actually there are two kinds of live shots.
1. The real...where reporters are on the scene of a developing story
gathering important information (brushfires, crime scenes etc.)
2. The bogus...where reporters stand in the dark near the building or
other location where something might have happened hours earlier. These
are usually ordered by management (see consultant)...reporters know
they're a waste of time and money, and make them look silly.
How to save Baseball
The saddest thing about former Senator George Mitchell's report on the
use of performance enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball is this...no
real surprises. Every owner, player and fan pretty much knew who was on
the juice (steroids and Human Growth Hormone or GBH). It was obvious by
the changes in their appearance and performance. If there was anything
at all surprising about the report it was that it was able to name 88
players at all, given the fact that almost nobody in the sport wants to
clean it up.

Too Much Freedom
A few years ago, I was traveling and started talking to my cab driver
who was from Cuba.
I said, "What would you say is the biggest difference between Cuba and
He picked up a newspaper and said, "You have this! In my country, you
can't believe what you read or hear on television; here, you can."
I've never forgotten that moment. Here was a man who realized the value
of something most Americans take for granted: that what we read or watch
is the truth. Is it biased or slanted with a political point of view?
Maybe sometimes. but it's not a lie and it's not controlled or edited by
the government; that a free, unfettered media is the single most
important element in keeping government honest and keeping people
informed is a given.

My New Job
Well, after several weeks of being out of work and trying to decide what
to do next.I think I have it.
I was watching one of the candidate's debates the other night and it
came to me. It was so clear and obvious I can't believe I didn't see it
before. I need to run for President of the United States!
Now I will never be President, but I realized the other night, neither
will most of the other men (and woman) now raising million of dollars
from special interests. And there's no interest more special to me right
now than figuring out where the next paycheck(s) will come from!
