IN A FIXX: The wife and I went to a concert this week. Yes, we can still rock with the best of them. Ok, I can't, never could, but I like to pretend every once in a while. We saw The Fixx on stage, an 80's British rock band from our high school era. The Mrs.
tells me they had 4 hit songs in the US, but I only remember two of them. It was a great concert, full of people our age, trying to re-live their school daze. Why is it that all of us men from the 80s are now outta shape and outta style? It seemed like all the men there were pudgy or balding or both. I still have my hair, though now it's rapidly growing out of my nose and probably my ears soon, too. But I sure have packed on the pounds. AARGGH! At least I'm not alone.
RIDE THE THIRD WAVE: Our buddy ThirdWaveDave
is back to regular blogging. Yeah! I check him out daily (at least) and always enjoy when he takes on the big boys like Pepsico and little Dickie Durbin
. Dave, glad to have you back. Keep up the good work.
SKY HIGH HIT: I ventured to the box office this summer Saturday. I saw the new Disney flick Sky High
with my best friend and his family. It is a cheesy but fun family film. Based upon the size of the audience in our theater for the opening weekend, I predict it will be a modest hit. It's good to see Kurt Russell back in some Disney pictures on a regular basis. I remember him from my youth as a Disney star in shows like The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes
. His previous Disney movie, Miracle
, was top-notch entertainment. On a side note, except for my step-daughter, I think my best friends' kids may be the cutest on the planet.
MADAME PRESIDENT?: Mrs. Media Matters
starts an engaging and important discussion on whether Hillary Clinton has a chance at becoming US President. It's a scary thought. But nevertheless a possibility we must face. Through a look at a speech Clinton gave in college, the Mrs. lays out why she feels Clinton
is unworthy of high office. I agree with her and Republican bloggers must start now blogging early and often about this woman and the disaster her leadership would be to the nation. I'd like to rest on my laurels from the hard work of the last election and just assume the Democrats can't win. Yet, with the possibility of another Clinton debasing the oval office, we cannot afford to let that happen. Hellary needs to be stopped and put in her place.
KUDOS TO KATHERINE: Katherine Harris has apparently decided to run for the US Senate in Florida. Currently a Congresswoman, some in the Republican party are trying to dissuade her from seeking higher office. Why? She has been nothing but loyal to the President and the party. Her courage and leadership in the 2000 election fiasco as the Secretary of State who certified Bush's win in Florida has earned her the support of the faithful. I don't understand or appreciate those who would like to antagonize her further advancement.
