Kim Jong-un to Host 87th Annual Oscars And he gets two lifetime achievement awards...
So . . . Rondo going to the Mavericks.... Yay Sue. I usually don't follow the NBA until closer to the playoffs - so I'm just looking at the standings now. Holy cow, the Southwest division... Memphis 21-4 Houston 19-6 Dallas 19-8 San Antonio 17-9 New Orleans 13-12 The division is a combined 89-39 - a .695 winning percentage. For comparison, in 2013 there were 3 teams with a .695 winning percentage or better in all of the NBA. Stupid Pelicans dragging the division down like that.
Hey Gus - I'm getting my boy a guitar for Christmas. Acoustic-electric, was thinking about something in the 300-500 range. He's 13 and has taken lessons for a couple of years. What brands would you be partial to? Any specific models you'd recommend? Thanks.

From the Corner: White House press secretary Josh Earnest refused to rule out a visit by Cuban President Raúl Castro to Washington Flashback....... QUESTION: In the spirit of that type of bold leadership, would you be willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year of your administration, in Washington or anywhere else, with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea, in order to bridge the gap that divides our countries? ... OBAMA: I would. Not quite Obama's "first year" but hey....... Although, if you look back at the beginning of that question (this was the youtube debate where they solicited questions from "regular people")... In 1982, Anwar Sadat traveled to Israel, a trip that resulted in a peace agreement that has lasted ever since. Obama turned the "enemies meet...peace agreement hammered out" premise into "declare peace in our time first...then...let's hang out".

The reason The Interview has been canceled is not Hollywood cowardice. No, the Obama administration has demanded it, and Sony really had no choice but to agree. The "cowardice" angle is . . . to use the name of Beasts' boat . . . subterfuge. You are now hearing about possible plans for Obama to visit Cuba or Castro to visit the White House. Here's the thing: Obama is normalizing relations with Cuba in order to set the stage for such a "diplomatic" visit, the purpose of which is for him to carry out a CIA plot to assassinate Castro through the use of some sort of patch or something or other on his palm that transfers a deadly virus when the two shake hands. There will be a documentary crew following every step of the way, and the movie will be released in late January 2017. Sony had simply gotten too close to the truth. And didn't even think to give Obama the hero's role.

CH: Beasts, was Cutler a whiny vag at Vanderbilt? Our time in Nashville overlapped with Cutler at Vandy (pretty much exactly, now that I look it up). We went to church with the Vandy defensive coordinator at the time. I really didn't know him well at all, but mrs hit and run was in a Bible study with his wife. I am going to be honest with you, I didn't hear much about Cutler while there. Nashville is a Volunteer town through and through and Vandy a red-headed stepchild. [TheVIMH: so there was no real point in saying any of that] Hey, when have I ever passed up a chance to pass on meaningless personal information? [TheVIMH: like I said, no real point] We're in agreement.

Cecil: I can almost sympathize with Cowboys fans, watching Tony Romo torpedo another drive with an ill-conceived pass forced into triple coverage. But . . . naaaah. You're behind the times, man. I've seen something like 127 articles in the wake of last week's victory over the Eagles on how the Cowboys have gone from the Chokiest team in December in the history of every conceivable universe that ever existed to how they now are virtually unflappable, unstoppable, unbeatable. It's amazing what they Cowboys have "accomplished" (in the eyes of a hyperbolistical media). One bad game, of course, and the rush to jump off this new found bandwagon will break the sound barrier.

Ok, this right here is funny: Well, typepad works for me. I knew there was something fishy going on. Posted by: sylvia | December 17, 2014 at 05:29 PM I love you whoever spoofed that sylvia response above. Brilliant! Why? Well... ******************************* Hmmm. Who's to know? Maybe Typepad would have a comment on it. Posted by: sylvia | September 21, 2010 at 11:16 PM ******************************* Okay just to update you, I have written Typepad about my problem with Tom Maguire and asked that they take some action. I asked their help in convincing Tom that he has to remove comments that deal with stalking off his web site. Posted by: sylvia | September 22, 2010 at 11:55 PM ******************************* More updates. I emailed Typepad about Tom Maguire yesterday and a woman wrote back to me and confirmed that any such abusive comments that refer to where a person lives, etc is against Typepad policy. Posted by: sylvia | September 24, 2010 at 12:05 PM ******************************* Aw,sylvia,I'm so happy for you to have gotten a response from Typepad. I'm sure that made you feel special. Get well soon. Love, Me Posted by: hit and run | September 24, 2010 at 12:43 PM ******************************* No what makes me feel better Hit, is that Tom's colleagues are aware of the problem and hopefully, if they are legit, will talk to Tom about it. Posted by: sylvia | September 24, 2010 at 12:48 PM ******************************* This ends with Typepad making it onto your "maybe" list as a cybot troll,doesn't it? Posted by: hit and run | September 24, 2010 at 12:56 PM *******************************

OL: Sorry Hit, I stopped reading at that qualification. I am racist I guess. You are not a bad person because the Obamas think you are a racist. You are not a bad person for failing to read my entire comment. You are a bad person for breaking the JOM style guide by apologizing. A very bad person.

Let's assume Michelle is not making this story up. There's a real person out there who knows she saw Michelle in Target and asked her for help. Since that time she's probably told all her friends about it, posted the story on Facebook, let the whole world know that she met the First Lady and asked her to help get something of the shelf. It's a fun story. Er, it was a fun story. Now all those people have been informed by Michelle that this woman is racist. #AllLivesMatter

NK: There is a massive difference in national elections between loyalty to one's political base and defying LI-persuadables, and demand they either join the base or get off the bus. How would you describe Obama's 2012 win?
Sly devil that TM - ending the post with the word "first".
daddy: #I'llRideWithYou, meaning I'll ride on a train with a woman wearing a Hijab or Bhurka, so that she does not feel uncomfortable riding on a train and being dissed by Anti-Islam racists. Any of them offer to ride with dozens of people this terrorist has sexually assaulted? The ex-wife is now dead, but maybe we need... #IllHelpKeepYouFromBeingSetOnFire
