Tonight's lecture

was in Harvard Square at the Coop. Author/poet Susie Davidson discussed and read from her book "I Refused To Die" It has stories of Boston area Holocaust survivors and soldiers who rescued them. Not enough history for me, lol. Too much poetry. But overall I liked it.
Funny part for me was after the lecture I was waiting for the author to sign my books and she noticed an Al Franken book behind where we were standing. She commented that he was good. I was surprised. I am always surprised when Jewish people are anti-war. I know you can't generalize....but if some dictator was hellbent on wiping out Irish people in Ireland.....you better believe as an Irish American (Boston Irish Catholic to be precise), I'd be all for whoever was fighting that dictator!

Political Compass

This is my new favorite thing! It takes just 5 minutes. It's fun and somewhat revealing.


There are a few pages of questions and then it graphs your answers.

Go try it and come back and tell me your numbers.

I went to a lecture tonight. It was presented by the Ford Hall Forum at the Old South Meeting House. Very interesting. Very informative. Very moving.

Good Night and Good Luck

Tonight's movie was Good Night and Good Luck. An enjoyable night except for the people who talk as though they were in their living room. I did not need to shush them.......someone beat me to it. I liked the movie and the actors.

I did not get to see Jarhead. My 17 year old son heard from a friend that there is a scene in the movie showing the main character masturbating. My son felt he would be uncomfortable watching that scene sitting next to me. LOL, I know that I would have been uncomfortable! So instead we went to see...............Chicken Little! A good time was had by all.

Just got in from seeing "Derailed". It was OK, not too, too predictable. Tomorrow night the spalpeen and I go see "Jarhead".

French Rioting

Here's my problem.......who do I root for? LOL. But to be fair, I like Sarkozy......if he were a little older I would suspect he was fathered by a downed American fighter pilot in WWII......but he was born in '55 not '45. Still there is hope he will be the next president of France. I think we could deal with him a little easier than Chirac or de Villepin.

Bill Kristol

I watch this guy on Fox News Sunday and he is just amazing. Since Rove is sidelined, the administration should listen to this guy, I really feel he has his finger on the pulse.
