• I know I haven’t talked about it. It’s really because I’m extremely nervous that the Dallas Mavericks are going to fumble this opportunity away. During the last 20 years, the Mavericks have had several extremely strong and talented teams. They’ve gone to the playoffs and, for the most part, have played extremely well. Then, they would come up against the Los Angeles Lakers or the San Antonio Spurs and wilt at crunch time. Now, in this NBA playoff run, the Dallas Mavericks have made critical play after critical play during crunch time. They have created turnovers instead of making turnovers. They are one game away from winning the NBA finals. Go Mavericks!
  • I don’t understand why politicians just can’t admit when they’re wrong. Sarah Palin was 100% wrong about Paul Revere’s ride and the purpose for it. You can spin it. You can examine it. She was simply wrong. For some reason, there are boxes and boxes of Sarah Palin’s e-mails. Boxes? This is 2011, why won’t they be put on disks? Why is anybody concerned about Sarah Palin’s e-mails?
  • Congressman Dana Rohrabacher wants our money back. He believes that Iraq should repay us for invading them. I think he should hold his breath until that happens. Craziness.
  • Strenuous exercise may protect the brain against strokes. There are hundreds of benefits of strenuous exercise, which I need to get to, and this is just one of them.
  • There’s lots of turmoil and disarray in Yemen.
  • Two common substances appear to be linked to cancer. I’m not sure that it’s a surprise to anyone that formaldehyde has been linked to cancer.
  • 10 years after the Bush tax cuts (happy anniversary) there’s no evidence that the Bush tax cuts did any of the positive things that the Bush administration claimed. Tax cuts do not pay for themselves.
  • The Anthony Wiener saga continues. It appears that he exchanged a series of Twitter messages with a 17-year-old girl. None of the messages appeared to be inappropriate. The problem is, once you open that ugly can of worms the members of the press are all over you.

25 years ago Ferris Bueller’s Day Off debuted. One of the most enjoyable movies that I’ve ever seen. Where are the actors now? If you haven’t seen it, rent it this weekend. If you have, see it again. Pure fun. BTW, I just saw Kung Fu Panda 2. Now that was a ton of fun also. I highly recommend. I took my 7-year-old grandson, but it is fun without the grandson.
