The truth is, I have trouble sitting at the computer for more than a few minutes at a time. My knee gets stiff and sore really fast. But it's not like I don't have anything I'd like to talk about. There is so much going on! Like, will Patrick Fitzgerald use Tom DeLay's wife's legal problems to leverage a deal out of him. Does anyone think DeLay is the kind of guy to sacrifice himself for his wife's sake?
How about, "will Harry Reid grow a proper set of Irish balls and filibuster the Alito nomination?" Seems to me a good question! With a good Irish name like that, you'd think he'd have gotten his Irish up long ago. C'mon Harry, grow some!
More personal news: my tickets to see George Thorogood arrived in the mail yesterday! He is playing at the old, historic Elco Theatre in Elkhart. This building has acoustics rivaled only by The Auditorium in Chicago! This is gonna be a dynamite concert! I am pumped!
I'm so sorry to hear about your knee. Though you don't believe necessarily that God exists, I do so I'm saying a prayer for you anyway that your knee gets healed up real quick. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Hello to your sweet daughter from my Emily!
I have been totally out of the loop current events-wise, so I have no idea bout DeLay's wife's legal problems. Huh. I must check that out.
Have fun at your concert! When is it?
I have exciting news for myself. Bill Wirtz never lets Blackhawks home games be shown on TV, but because they are playing Pittsburgh tonight and eveyrone wants to see Sidney Crosby they're showing it!!! Yay!
I have been saying every since 9/11 that Iraq wasn't the threat.... that Iran was. Now we have a military so spent, with manpower and equipment so worn out we are incapable of dealing with the real threat!
This is what happens when you allow ideologues rather than pragmatists to run your country.
gp - Beware, the world may be coming to an end! Actually, I'd watch the game, but my grandaughter and I are going to Notre Dame to watch the hockey team get trounced by the #2 ranked Miami of Ohio Redhawks.
The concert is Sunday, March 26!
sl - that sounds like an excellent prescription for my knee! Actually, my favorite is "Move It On Over" ("move over little dog, the big ol' dog is movin in!"). I somehow identify with this song a lot!
Hopefully the dems will still show some balls and not go quietly into that [not so] good night.
I must agree - the Auditorium Theatre is acoustically perfect. THey've actually tested the acoustics to determine that, it's not just my opinion.
The single proof of God to me is the fact that truth eventually festers to the top, even though it does not come when we expect it.
Persistance always pays off...so persist Bear persist!
I have no idea what's going on down there any more, but I am angry about that air strike in Pakistan that the CIA supposedly did in order to kill 1 Al Qaeda (sorry for the misspelling - you see it so often yet when it comes time to use it you cannot for the life of you remember how it's spelled) operative, yet killed 17 villagers instead. I thought the CIA were experts at assassinating individuals? WTF?
Take it easy!
I've always said the same thing about Iran. NOW we're in no position to do anything about it. DUMB shits!!
On Iran, when I heard that they didn't want to let the UN inspectors in, I thought the same thing. Here we are, for no good reason, in Iraq, and the real threat it next door. It's true that we can't just immediately pull out of Iraq and that leaves us woefully unready to take on any more rogue countries. I, too, thought we were going after Iraq when Iran was much more dangerous.
Sending you best wishes and good thoughts.
However, I am jealous of the Thorogood tickets.
My wife and I were headed for a camping weekend, near Quebec city, last year. We were taking my 10 year old niece and as the trip was over 4 hours I decided to put on some driving music, so I stuck a George Thorogood disc in the CD player, and My niece goes "Wow George Thorogood"
Okay now I don't feel so old for listening to him.
However, I am driving along with my 60 + father-in-law and again I put in George (great driving music), and My Father-in-law goes "oh Georgie Porgie, I used to listen to him all the time"
I suspect that George has a broad apeal, or my family is just plain Bad to the Bone.
Hey, I have an Ask Nic post up today so if you want to drop on my and ask me a ? you are most welcome to!
