  • I keep seeing the commercial on ABC for Life on Mars, the new series where the detective is somehow transported 30 years to the past.  There’s a brief scene where there is talk that he doesn’t even have a computer on his desk.  That makes me wonder what kind of technology we will have in our everyday lives in the next 30 years.

    I got the Josiah Bartlett reference! I LOVED that show. Couldn’t get enough of it except when Donna whined to Josh about her love life. I just wanted to scream, “For pete’s sake, kiss her already!!!”

    1) The Electoral College map was neat. As you said, if you live in a solid Red or Blue state it seems as if your vote isn’t worth much. Only voters living in the swing states have votes that will matter. I think, if I had time, I could devise an extreme example where a candidate could lose by a popular landslide, but, if they carried enough big electoral states by a single vote, still win the election. Seems wrong. Also the Electoral College map shows the likelihood that Obama will win at 99%. McCain needs to win every single swing state or he loses the election. This election could be Bush-Gore in reverse. If that were to occur the Republicans will scream about the inadequacies of the Electoral College. I’ve also seen maps with the country divided up Red/Blue by counties. The whole country is Red, with just small, densely populated metropolitan areas colored in blue; geographically the country appears to be 95% Red. Its just that most of the Red is sparsely populated.
    2) The aerial photography map made me want to travel; there are so many truly unique and rarely visited places on this planet.
    3) There are some really strange people with lots of time on their hands. To see proof of this view the Martha Stewart video of infants dressed up in Halloween costumes as food. An awful lot of work for a single event during which the infants have absolutely no idea or appreciation of what’s happening.
    4) If the American flag lapel pin situation was reversed; you would be hearing about it all day long on Hate-Talk radio today
    5) I have been getting the post turtle joke for years with all sorts of politicians inserted in the joke. There’s no shelf-life on that old rancher and his rantings about post turtles.
    6) I guess if you don’t have the time or discipline to lose weight it’s just easier to support Fat Acceptance
    7) The WSJ had a story within the last week about Dubai having the same financial problems the rest of the world is having with their financial institutions and real estate development. They are not going bankrupt, but they are having a hard time finding buyers, renters and tourists for all of the expensive projects they have under construction.
