First off, this header for a story on MSNBC caught my eye … “Clinton Veers to Dark Side” … it says. “Uh oh,” I thought, “something nefarious here!” Turns out it’s a story about how, in her stump speeches, she uses real-life stories to illustrate her points. Real life, I guess, is “The Dark Side.” I have to say, the header struck me as just a tad misleading … just a tad biased. Had I not read the story, I’d have thought this was about Hillary being nasty to Obama (or someone) again! Come on, folks! The dark side … isn’t that Dick Cheney’s territory?
I read on Politico that Oliver Stone has a Dubya biopic in the works. Don’t know if I could stand to watch. Sounds like it’s the tale of an Oedipal misadventure that, unfortunately, didn’t take place in Shakespeare’s brain … but rather cost trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives … not to mention Yale’s reputation!
The Phillies won!
The first day of CONCACAF saw:
- Group B=Canada over Trinidad & Tobago, 6-0
- Group A=Mexico over Jamaica, 8-1
If Mexico beat Jamaica 8-1, it’s a little scary to think about today’s finals score. (Kick-off is at 7:30 PM PT, I believe.) Apparently TVC Deportes is carrying the game … but I haven’t heard of anyone who’s actually found the station. I’ll keep you posted! Meanwhile, while you wait, here’s a Q&A with Heather O’Reilly from US Soccer.
PS: It’s SNOWING this morning in Canterbury, NH!!!! Snowing HARD!
