I am really busy today and need to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time. But, how could I possibly just leave my Owen Wilson cheesecake post up for so long? Rook already thinks I'm shameless. And I can't have that.
To impress you, I provide you more important thoughts below to far more serious issues that I've been pondering since my last post.
It was so accurate and informative that I'm not quite sure how we would all live without it. The reporters who don't know better than to come in from the rain should all get huge raises and possibly promotions.
Our media truly is indispensable. They should be praised.
Ooops. I am wrong. I just read in the NYTs yesterday that "In the prepared text of his radio address for Saturday, Mr. Bush said federal, state and local officials "are doing everything possible" to prevent another attack. As to the criticism (mine and others who say now and have always said his tagline is B.S.) Mr. Bush is not backing down (shocker!) "We will stay on the offense fighting the terrorists abroad so we do not have to face them at home."
He did change "Iraq" to "abroad." Wonder what Blair thought of that?
I also just heard Bush make a speech this morning where he made no mention at all to his worn out tagline (I think). BUT! He did say, that the war in Iraq is important because they "are going to be our most important ally in the War On Terra."
Hmmm. Wonder if this is the new tagline? Only time will tell.
WHY DO WRITERS, WHEN TRYING TO DEFEND AMERICANS, MAKE US LOOK REALLY STUPID?
In yesterday's NYTs "Week In Review," Benedict Carey wrote about terrorism and anxiety. And to prove how resilient we Americans were after September 11, wrote that, "In Lower Manhattan, real estate prices have only spiraled upward since the Sept. 11 attacks; the average sale in TriBeCa last year was almost $1.7 million, 16 percent higher than in 2003."
Not that I wouldn't love to have enough money to spend more than $1 million on an 800 square foot "loft-like" space, but c'mon. C'mon!!
IS MARK MCMGUIRE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF?
We watched the movie, "61" yesterday, about Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. I'm not saying it was the best baseball movie every made, but I really liked it. And the fact that Billy Crystal made it led me to believe that it was pretty accurate. I felt so bad for Roger Maris. Getting death threats. Losing his hair. So much pressure! Then at the end of the movie, it shows Mark Mcguire beating Maris's record.
(I would insert a photo *here* but, I keep getting an error - so click here to see.)
Wonder if Mcguire can even watch that movie? What a disappointment he is. What a cheater.
So anyway, that's it for today. Journalism, politics, terrorism, real estate & baseball! See! I'm not so shameless, not so shallow!
Oh! Did I mention that the guy who played Mickey Mantle in "61" was really cute? (Elsie! You've got to watch this movie!)
