    I thought Colberts interview with Cruz was very telling. The audience was hostile but Stephen told them to hold their tongue, Cruz was his guest. Cruz was struggling to deal with Colbert in a srtaight interview and was dodging giving a straight answer but did say he thought the SCOTUS was a bad thing if they didn't have to run for election. The Constitution was specifically worded that way so the Judicial Branch would never have to campaign for office. He's going to have a hard time playing the "Constitutionalist" if he doesn't want to follow the Constitution.

    This is the problem with going on Colbert. He's as smart or smarter than his guests and won't be steam rolled. You think politicians would have learned this by now, but I guess the chance to address an audience his size is too great.

    Big Bang Theory…Too much drama and not that funny to start the season…let down.

    I got the left-hand treatment in school way back when. The nuns encouraged me to change, but it wasn't forced. The biggest problem was trying to write on one of those desks that have no left side. Contortionism can be confused with deviltry.
    Fortunately, I've resisted the devil's siren song to go full-on evil, and there's nothing sinister in the planning stages. Some studies have shown that lefties are more prone to accidents, but this has been attributed to adapting to life in a right-hand world.
    Sounds like another case of religious extremism. Maybe some old-timey biblical justice should be administered on the teacher. Cut off her right hand and see how she fares with only her left. Okay, I'm not advocating that level of punishment, but isn't it equally evil to traumatize a child in that manner?

      My father, born in 1923, would tell me that he had an elementary teacher that would tie his left hand to his desk so he was forced to use his right hand. I guess he got the best of her as he continued to use his left for the rest of his life.

    Didn't make it back to comment yesterday, but Eva Cassidy is marvelous. And you're right – her voice has an ethereal quality that is almost magical. Great stuff, and sad that she died so young.

    As for the "Over the Rainbow" cover by Israel Kaieowioiabioakouaia (sp?) mentioned yesterday, I can never hear that song without thinking about Dr. Mark Green on ER. Just a gut punch of a TV death, but wouldn't that be the way to go? In Hawaii, loved ones nearby, lying in bed with the wind blowing through the room, listening to the ocean until you just drift off to sleep?? We should all be so lucky.

    I've been listening to Eva Cassidy for about ten years. Besides the song you mentioned, give "Woodstock" and "Ain't No Sunshine" a listen. They are both outstanding.
