What are you thinking about? Reading? Doing? Anything politically making you happy? Angry?
Some observations from this side of the blog:
1. The Republicans continue their assault on the country. Preventing health care reform and spreading the idea that the president is not really an American citizen (“the birthers”) must be more harmful than not.
2. I’m taking the pledge: I swear not to listen to any other conservative describe Sotomayor. This is after hearing McCain who is “on the fence” about voting for her nomination. Always out ahead of popular opinion, McCain??
3. We can be grateful (goodness knows to whom) for the Willie Nelson/John Mellencamp/Bob Dylan concert currently touring around. It lasts for 5.5 hours. That’s a recession special.
4. A video of Willie Nelson: this is from another tour, but still this year; he’s 77. Including this is an example of how we are not men-haters! That said, I have to apologize for the sound quality, which is seldom very good on privately taken tapes.
