This article/interview with CNN made me a little bit more sympathetic towards W.Â In it he’s a bit reflective about his time in office and admits he regrets some of the things he said as well as that Misssion Accomplished banner.Â I was never offended at the “wanted dead or alive” quote.Â I also thought it was a bit interesting that he called President Clinton before the Obama visit to get some advice on how to welcome the next incoming president.
I think Clinton was the first president I really kept tabs on regarding the news and stuff, I guess that’s because I was just becoming a young adult and that’s the phase you start to pay attention to things of this nature.Â I use to get upset when the news referred to him as Mr. Clinton, and thought it was a swipe at him by not using the President salutation.Â Then the other night on the local news, there’s this segment called Viewers Voice, and one viewer thought the news was doing the same thing towards President Bush by calling him Mr. Bush.Â The news dude then stated that proper or standard protocol is that the first mention of the president is when the presidential title is used, and evertime there after is when Mr is used.Â And now I know.
Be careful what you wish for.Â I was upset that Palin never talked to the press during the campaign, now she’s everywhere.

I’m sure this happens with both campaigns, but here’s a story of office equipment from the Obama campaign being donated in Pittsburgh.Â The article states that 200 campaign offices in ten states are involved in this program.

When I use to have to hand customers cash in jobs I held way back when, I always made sure to hand the bills back all facing the same way and all right side up.Â That’s something my father taught me, when putting cash in my wallet have all the bills face the same direction.Â I don’t think I’ve been handed money back in which the bills face all the same direction and right side up in quite a while.

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a big fan of our NBC affiliate’s newscast, and that Mike Snyder isn’t my cup of tea.Â A couple of months ago he started to blog about his weight, so I decided to check out his blog to see if he made any progress.Â I didn’t find anything about his weight loss, but the first two posts describe the heart attack and double by-pass surgery his 37-year-old wife had.Â Wow, best of luck to him, his wife, and their two young girls.Â Link
