News Roundup – Cuba, Katie, New Jersey Water

President Obama is in Cuba. Yep, Cuba. I think that this is a good thing. Not talking with Cuba really has done nothing to destabilize its government in over 50 years. Let’s try to bring them into the 21st century.

Kate Couric bought a $12 million condo in New York. Look, I’m happy for her, but $12 million for 4000 sq ft? Couldn’t she have spent a million dollars and gotten something really nice in Virginia? Maybe fly back and forth? I’m just askin’.

What has happened in Flint, Michigan is a tragedy. This type of travesty should never happen in the United States. Ever. It looks as if other folks have water issues, like New Jersey. 80 carcinogens were found in New Jersey’s water supply. That’s not good.

A terror suspect has been found. Salah Abdeslam was captured in Belgium. He was wanted in the Paris attacks.

Clinton folks are going to paint Trump as unfit for the presidency. I think that this strategy is too weak. Trump needs to be painted as dangerous, undisciplined and crazy.

Another violent outburst at a Trump rally.

NCAA – Sweet 16!!!

Congratulations to Jason Day for winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Days sinks a putt on the 72nd hole for the win. It was a gutsy performance.

Brother, do you have a dime or two?

I have problem with these rich people stoking their campaigns with their own money. It makes me sick. It is an unfair advantage over “regular” folk. Bloomberg did it. Hillary did it. Now, Carly is doing it. This isn’t right.

From TPM:

Carly Fiorina’s $2.5 million loan to her U.S. Senate campaign has given the former Hewlett-Packard CEO a considerable financial edge over her Republican rivals.

In all, Fiorina’s campaign had $2.75 million in the bank to begin the year, according to a federal disclosure report delivered Friday. She is one of three Republicans vying for the right to challenge California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is seeking a fourth term. (more…)

Terrence Trent D'arby: "Wishing Well"

Which Palin Did McCain choose?

How many people have gotten bogged down in trying to figure out who this Palin person is? I know, or at least I think I know, that she isn’t Michael Palin from Monty Python. No matter. I’m not going to focus on that for now. I’m going to revel in the afterglow of the Democratic National Convention.

The convention wasn’t perfect. Everyone wanted some one to say something else or something more. Senator Hilary Clinton didn’t support Senator Barack Obama enough– Horse feathers. Obama didn’t talk about the blight of blacks in the inner city– Give me a break. This is was the most energized and progressive convention that I have ever witnessed. It was coordinated. It was harmonious. It was as good a convention as the Democrats can put on in my opinion. It was marvelous.

So, I’m going to continue basking in this glow for a little longer. The music selection for tonight will be Terrence Trent D’arby. There was so much fanfare surrounding this one huge mega-hit. He was supposed to be the next Prince. NOT. He had this one hit then a minor one then he was gone. Poof.
