It’s Not About Cookies

The above video is best presented without commentary.

I want to make a short post about how I recently found a VISA card that had been left in an ATM. I approached the machine that was outside on a main street. It was beeping frantically and displaying in a language that I cannot read. I pressed a random button and the card came out. I looked at the name and then looked around for possible card owners. I didn’t see any, but I saw a police officer and I showed the card to her. She pointed way up the hill at an old man walking with a cane and told me to run after him. He responded to the name on the card and I gave it to him with a pat on the shoulder. He thanked me.

Does Bill Clinton have a Girlfriend in Canada?

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

The man who still stands a chance at being the First Man was once rumored to have a thing for Belinda Stronach.

Having a girlfriend in Canada is a cliche. Denying it is untypical, but Bill is a bit of a maverick.

I left this post unfinished earlier and I want to make a small retraction. Bill no longer stands a chance at being the First Man.

Politics Versus People

people.JPGI am not an idiot. I know that when Michelle Obama recently reminisced about her early discouragement of Barack’s political ambitions and used the words these people are mean, she was launching a not so subtle dig at Hillary Clinton. I think that she has a point. Washington seems to have become a ‘win at all costs’ place in recent decades and the people who are best suited to that environment have gravitated there and flourished. Obama does seem to be substantively different than ‘those people’ and ‘those people’ might prevent him from changing the political landscape. Those people only have one vote each.
