WifeGeeding and I are finally caught up with all Mad Men episodes, now I can look up things on the web and not worry about accidentally reading a spoiler.
I’m still having trouble getting use to the fourth season and I think that’s because of all the change in the series. Don isn’t married and is depressed, the office is new and not as nice and classy, and not seeing some of the old characters is a big adjustment.
I think Don Draper is the immoral Superman. Superman has Clark Kent, Don Draper has Dick Whitman. Superman has the Fortress of Solitude, Don Draper has his trips to Los Angeles. Superman’s weakness is Kryptonite, Draper’s is women. Both were adopted and have a past few knew about. Dude, I could go on and on.
I’ve been on antibiotics for ten days and I’m still not better, it’s time to see the doc again.
Dick Armey was on The Daily Show and I found the interview to be quite interesting. It’s always fun to watch the full unedited videos on their website. There was one point during the interview that Armey just sat cross-armed which I thought was strange.
I can still remember sitting in an economics class when my professor made a graph comparing guns verses butter and thinking . . . what the heck?
My friend Barry has an interesting commentary about the last of the U.S. combat troops leaving Iraq that just really made me think, actually I think I wholeheartedly agree with him:
We, for all practical purposes, left Iraq tonight. That idiotic escapade cost 4,415 American soldier’s lives and left another 32,000 wounded. And the number of men and women suffering psychological damage cannot be known.Unforgivable.And it you want to tell me it was to bring democracy to those who were oppressed by Saddam Hussein, hold your breath. Freedom for them? They are all Muslims. You don’t even want them to have the freedom to build a church in this country. Right?And in a few years, Iraq will be in more chaos than ever.
A comment left on this blog that caught my attention – I also read a tweet the other day that reminded us that we’ve been building ground zero’s near mosques since 2003…
Nightline had an interesting segment on the area around ground zero, also known by many as hallowed ground. I wasn’t aware of the strip clubs immediately next to the area.
