Geraldo Brings Bloggers Together

I was just watching him on FOXnews, gushing about how great today is, with this huge grin. He could barely contain himself. He showed pictures of all these Mosulians (Mosulians?) walking to the polling places, which was really nice to see, and kept comparing it to the Berlin Wall falling and the Civil Rights movement […]

7.55 AM

Trolling the news sites for info about the elections. It’s not quite 8 am there, yet there are very few substantive articles. I can only take that to mean “so far, so good.” I’m sure if half Baghdad were under rubble and broken glass, it would be everywhere.

Election Photo

PowerLine has an incredible picture of a man voting in Michigan, in tears because his son, who died in the 1990-91 Shiite uprising, couldn’t vote with him. There was a remarkable woman on the news today, voting in, I think, LA, hobbling along the polling place on a cane, with a middle aged relative, a […]

Good Movie

We just watched Pirates of the Caribbean. It’s very 1950s swashbuckling. Or at least in the same spirit. Carrying the mantle, if you will.
