Various & Sundry XIX

  1. I am going to buy this. The man lived an amazing life; I’m interested in what his take on it will be. I’m also partial to bios. Right now, I’m reading Don’t Mind if I Do, by George Hamilton. Great stuff — entertaining and light, very much unlike Lennon: The Life, which took me all summer to get through.
  2. Don’t hassle the Hoff. I’m glad he’s all right.
  3. You could waste an awful lot of time playing with Google’s Easter eggs. Not that I’d know.
  4. I’ve gotten some feedback: Beatles Rockband is fantastic. I simply must have it.
  5. I watched the premiere of Heroes last night. Man, I gotta catch up on stuff. I’m completely lost.
  6. I have asked this question many times.

I wonder about many more things this day, but alas, I’m out of time. Feel free to add to my list from your own brain.

RE: #6 – I think the guys who get wrapped up in their little sex scandals behind the scenes while publicly espousing “family values” or fighting against things like gay marriage in order to “protect the sanctity of marriage” deserve no forgiveness in the political arena. Mark Sanford is a Grade AAAA example of this…

I agree with you on the “…knows no party boundaries” as of late. I think the whole world has just gone whacko (except for you & I and the RtB tribe). And I catch myself way too often having that thought of being “high & mighty” & need to dial myself down a few notches, lest I get a karmic jolt of reality of my own…

What’s for lunch, doll? Tuna salad sammiches?? :-)

#6. It’s basically because Bill Clinton is awesome.

Yeah, but Hillary didn’t have cancer when Bill had the affair.

Hey I want to read Kennedy too so don’t sell it on Half.com – then can we talk politics?

Lunch sounds good – we are just eating supper after a GLORIOUS hike on the top of the world

I think that the Judeo-Christian spirit of forgiveness tends to dominate our collective culture, to the point that marital transgressions are forgiven provided the ‘sinner’ pay penance in a public forum. For some reason this gesture is validating, no matter how ugly the sin. If Edwards really was telling his mistress how he was waiting for his wife to die so they could be together, how heartless can you get? Plus I think it may have something to do with cognitive dissonance- how much do we have invested in these figures? Edwards, very little. He’s a one-term senator and a… Read more »

“Gentlemen’s agreement” … as sexist as that good ol boy network seems, there’s something to be said for it. When Teddy died, I was reading this blistering piece about him from 1990 in I think GQ and it mentioned, offhandedly, as though we all knew it, how JFK would have sex with prostitutes in the Lincoln bedroom. I knew he was playing around, but can you imagine that happening today? As for those rock and roll singers and their lascivious behavior, I suppose it’s all relative. That said, I recently saw a pic of Mick Jagger from the 60s, I… Read more »
