Paula Abdul critiqued the second song from one of the performers and she did not like his performance of that second song. Thing is, he only sang one song. Turns out she read the wrong script or something. I do not understand why people watch that show.
If the Federal Reserve cuts interest rates much more soon we will be paying the banks to hold our money for us.
I delight in people telling us that the marketplace solves the problems. Leave it to the marketplace!!! Gas is now $3.75 a gallon. Guess what the number 1 issue for the election in November will be? Gas is $3.75 a gallon. Hard to fathom...
President Bush wants to fight global warming. He has announced his plans to attack the sun. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have announced that they are in opposition to this invasion. John McCain has not made any public statements but he has been inquiring about asbestos suits... Faux News is supportive of the invasion and their science experts have suggested that all flights to the sun be done during the day so that it can be easily found...
Sports Illustrated has ranked baseball stadiums. Shea Stadium, in New York is near the bottom. Both Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium ranked very low on 'hospitality.' You just have to love the New York Metro area...
Which reminds me. The official state bird for New Jersey, at least when I was growing up, was the eastern goldfinch. I have actually never actually seen an eastern goldfinch. In New Jersey we saw a lot of robins and blue jays, and if you lived near the ocean there were lots of sea gulls, but I've never known anyone from NJ who has actually ever actually seen an eastern goldfinch. The truth is, everyone from New Jersey and who has ever driven there, actually knows what the real state 'bird' actually is.
Tuesday is the big primary election in Indiana. Who'd have thunk it?
You know what I think is not patriotic? When people change their party affiliation during primaries to vote for a candidate of the other party to create chaos ala Rush Limbaugh. It is a denial of the freedom of the people of a party to choose who they want to run for office. It is about as unAmerican as you can get to deny people the right to choose their candidate. We should only vote in the primaries for the person we will choose to be the next President in November. Rush Limbaugh thinks that voting is a big joke and that is pathetic. He'd of course, deny it, but when you treat a primary election like this and chortle about creating chaos, you're making a joke out of a right that was bought and paid for by so many people by their heroism in so many wars. Shame on him and double shame on the people who do this.
The following is an excerpt, out of context, from a satirical essay. It is not really from the Reagan Diaries, but it is funny. I couldn't resist:
A moment I've been dreading. George brought his n'er-do-well son
around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida ; the one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and
has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The NewRepublic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."

The two major Kentucky quarterbacks both had disappointing draft days.
Brian Brohm, who marvelously stayed at U of L for this senior year, and was rewarded with a dismal team performance. Instead of going early in the 1st round, as he would have a year ago, he was drafted in the second round by the Packers who were good enough to make it to the NFC Championship Game that they lost to the World Champion New York Giants. (I really good have ended this sentence with "Game." but I had to add the rest. It was gratuitous on my part.) He comes into camp in second place behind highly regarded Aaron Rodgers. I do hope Brohm gets to play. I'm frightened that he might have have the opportunity to do so. What baffles me is that the Bears really think that Rex Grossman is better than Brian Brohm will be? They passed him twice.
Andre Woodson, of UK lingered until the 6th round where he was picked up by the World Champion New York Giants. (equally gratuitous). Woodson will be a backup to Eli Manning who has only played four seasons. Woodson, I think, may be a real talent. What baffles me is that the Bears really think that Rex Grossman is better than Woodson. Woodson went in the 6th round. Lovie Smith will not last long as a Head Coach in the NFL because he is too loyal to an obviously poor player and does not seem to realize that you need a capable quarterback to win championships.
I was feeling better having ranted away today, but I do need gas and gas is $3.75 a gallon....
