As we speak, Fox news is reporting and trying to confirm that an arrest has been made in the Boston bombing case. Marvelous, marvelous work by police forces, citizen journalists, media outlets, and businesses like Lord & Taylor who made their surveillance available to help (hopefully) nab this bastard. Seriously, excellent work. Proud of my country today.
My friend George was at the race when the bombing went down — he was in Lord & Taylor, in fact, shopping with his family after his brother finished the race. He was interviewed for a podcast about his experiences. You can hear that here. He makes some really interesting statements about citizen journalism. And thank God above that he and his loved ones made it out okay.
So, while we wait, here are few diversions to take your mind off of your absolute need to see this asshole beaten in the street. Or is that just me?
Let me just say that Mark Sanford cracks me up. He marries the heiress from Chicago, who foots the bill for his early campaigns and really exemplifies that whole “marriage is for social mobility” argument made to me so pointedly in the past few years, then embarrasses the mother of his four children publicly with his Argentine hot mama, then breaks into her house. I love guys like this. They know nothing except their pathological certainty that they can do what they want, when they want. Their needs are the highest morality (that’s a direct quote from the same “social mobility” great thinker from above who, oddly, insisted that the gay marriage issue was about “love.” Wrap your gray matter around that inconsistency…). And they are always surprised when the Argentine hot mamas, so eager to surprise them at the podium of a press conference announcing a Congressional run, are not so eager to surprise them in the court room to face charges of trespassing. Cracks me up. Seriously.
The Gosnell thing, if nothing else, is just absolute proof that we need to revisit the abortion debate because the sanitized version of a world with legal abortion turns out not to look like they said it would.
My buddy Dan is hilarious (even if he does say that everything is always — ALWAYS — my fault). Also, I saw Dan Monday at our softball game and I can’t think back on that game without a total face palm. Seriously, I’ve played a lot of softball in my life and that was the worst I’ve ever played. I can laugh about it now. Kind of…Dan said I was why we lost…(I think he’s kidding about that but one can never be sure).
A friend of mine is having lunch here today. It’s on the list for Austin…
Logan Circle is a great part of this city and this looks like my kind of place. France was a romantic and beautiful place and this appears to have captured that vibe…
Positive that this would be a good addition to my wardrobe.
It would appear that Florida stands alone, with maybe a few friends from S. Ga. Which makes sense because S. Ga. is basically N. Florida.
Sorry, that was mean. Here’s C.S. Lewis to remind you that some people are nice.
