A Step, but in Which Direction?

There are times when it is safe to say an event is of historical importance as it is happening. The attacks of 09.11 certainly count as one such instance. President Obama’s election two Novembers ago counts as well. I’m not so convinced that Obama signing the new health care bill into law counts. If it had created a public option, or a single-payer system, or even cut out the intermediaries and let fat-cat CEOs vote directly for our politicians, then sure, they could have brought…

Speak to me in a language I can hear

I’m still thirty-three for a couple of more hours. Shaddup. The Goddess blessed me today with a warm and sunny day.

Can It, Keith

Longtime readers know that I have almost always been a fan on Keith Olbermann, dating far back to the pre-.org days when Olbermann was on ESPN, when he and Dan Patrick truly revolutionized the art of the sports recap. The two of them could make watching highlights of any sport, no matter what sport or who was playing, an enjoyable experience, and their reunification on Football Night in America made the show must-see viewing for me. I must admit, though, that I have to ask…
