What An Incredible Video


1. I was doing a pretty good job keeping my Irish bladder* in check -- until he started talking about how his generation was dying off. He and my dad, z"l, would be the same age.

2. THEN I started thinking about how he was married for 69 years. I won't get 69 years with my beloved Myfanwe. But I'd like to. (I do realize that this would make us 99 and 97 years old.)

My fondest dream is, in our advanced years, to walk, hand-in-hand, to McDonald's once a week where we each have a Filet-O-Fish and split a diet coke and an order of fries. Then, as we prepare to leave, Myfanwe pulls the scarf around my neck and makes sure my coat is buttoned, and we leave to walk back home to listen to the news, have a pot of tea, and turn in early. I especially like the hand-in-hand part. I like holding her hand.

Welche Juden auf Yom Kippur Tun, ist Denken an Nahrung

Zu meinen Lesern auf Deutschland:

Ich möchte um Ihre Hilfe bitten und begnadige mich bitte, wenn mein Antrag unanständig ist.

Ich plane das Menü für ein Gemeinschaftsabendessen, das den 70. Jahrestag der Kristallnacht markiert. Es gibt ein Programmfolgen, das liturgische Musik vom Vorkriegsdeutschen (?) kennzeichnet.

Meine Absicht ist, deutsche Nahrung zu dienen. Ist hier meine Frage: tun Sie German' s essen ein Äquivalent des Goulash? Meine Großmutter bildete ein köstliches Goulash, aber ich kennen nicht, wenn sie ihm hier ausgesetzt wurde, oder wenn es aus Deutschland kam. Es würde ein großer Teller sein, zum mit spaetzle und Rotkohl zu dienen.

Oder gibt es ein anderer Teller, den Sie sich empfehlen würden. Was denken Sie?

Oh -- auch lassen Sie mich sagen, dass ich traurig bin, sind gewesen ranting und raving über amerikanische Politik. Ich verspreche, nach der Wahl interessanter zu sein.

Als immer, verzeihen Sie bitte meinem armen Deutschen. Ich bleibe Ihr ergebener Bediensteter.

Did anyone (besides me) notice Grampy John say to the black man "You probably don't know who Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are..."?

Not too condescending or racist, huh?

Was that because he figured the black man couldn't read, or because he thinks black people don't own houses?

No really. I want to know. I'll wait right here for my answer.

I'm not huge on the music -- it's a little repetitive and doesn't move me much -- but I think the animation is a piece of beautiful art.

I'll admit that I'm a little confused. Am I mistaken, or are two of the lovely people depicted Divine and Quentin Crisp? If it IS Quentin, they created a good enough likeness of him, but I knew him for years and he never, ever seemed mean or cross to me. He was gentle and benign and witty -- sortof like the Queen Mum, only more feminine.

Anyway, I hope you like it.

Heute bin ich ein Terrorist.

I am sick and tired of Palin's lies. Sick of them. And for all her blithering about the "liberal medial elite", they sure aren't saying, "Whoa, Nellie! Hate to put a hitch in your giddyup, ma'am, but that's a lie!"

Barak Obama loves this country. Anyone who says differently isn't a very good American. Because in America we can disagree with one another without calling into question each other's patriotism. That was sort of the point of the whole experiment with Democracy.

Barak Obama does not hang out with terrorists. Period. And anyone who says he does is a liar. I've been to parties with the "terrorist*" in question, and I've read the books written by the "terrorist". I can assure you a) that he isn't a terrorist, but rather a 64 year old professor, a devoted expert in the education of urban, high-risk children; b) he's a nice guy; and c) I happen to love American. (Yes, the do-gooder, hippie, tree-hugging lefty liberal commies love America.) I guess now that I have admitted to going to parties where he was in attendance, I can never be considered for vice-president. (Something which, a month ago, I didn't have to worry about, but now. Well. Who knows. Never say never.)

If I had a kabillion dollars I would put adds out there with great big words -- "John McCain hangs with Child Molesters" and "John McCain -- cuddles up with graft and bribery!" and "Did John McCain's friends cause the latest failures, like they did the last ones?"

*I am intentionally not print the guy's name. It's been in the press enough, and, while I get an minuscule number of hits, I think the guy deserves whatever break I can give him, since he's being persecuted by the Stepford Wife & Mother. Imagine the irony -- The Weather Underground being dissed by weather girl.)
