Blogging will be light for the next several days. I’m at a trauma conference and I’m supposed to be paying attention.
- What was the point of Hillary Clinton opening up the race thing? I heard a discussion on Ed Schultz show yesterday where a Black woman stated that Black women in South Carolina were being forced to chose between being a women (voting for Hillary) and being Black (voting for Obama). This is where this argument has headed. This is craziness? You mean a Black man can’t be sensitive to women’s issues? A White woman can’t be sensitive to the needs of the Black community? Give me a break. Officially, there has been a truce.
- For reasons that are unclear to me Senator Mitchell is testifying on Capital Hill today about Baseball and steroids. First of all, I would hope that Congress has better things to do with their time. Secondly, it is clear that Roger Clemens took steroids, just as Barry Bonds has. You can’t put on 30 – 40 lbs of muscle in your late 30’s to early forties. I don’t care what kind of great training the player is doing. Can you lose fat? Sure. I’m talking about putting on a significant amount of muscle. Steroids.
- I’m typing this post on my Dell Inspiron computer. I bought this computer about 4 or 5 years ago. It has been a good little computer. I really haven’t had any major problems. I have been able to do just about anything that iI wanted with this computer. It is a little heavy but I have the wide screen. Today, Apple has announced a thin computer. I mean a super-thin, light-weight computer (0.76 inches thick). If I only had $1700… okay, $1800 laying around.
- John Conyer (D-Mi) chairman of the House Judiciary committee, has called on the attorney general to name a special prosecutor to look into how and who destroyed the CIA’s torture tapes.
- Republican candidate Mike Huckabee stated last night that he wanted to amend the constitution so that it is consistent with God (banning abortion and gay marriage). Now, I have a problem any time someone believes that they know the will of God. When scholars disagree, then it is clear that none of us have a monopoly on the will of God.
