so far

all I'm seeing is repetitions of the same details. Wishing him a very fast recovery!

Bob Weir

Any updates on Bobby's condition ? He collapsed during "Unbroken Chain" last night.

The return of Hostess

Americans will once again be able to gorge themselves on the lovely treats. Read the latest article here. The company returns leaner (ironic!) and meaner and sans unionized bakers...

Boston Bombings Strange Facts #3

The "One Fund", created by Boston Mayor Thom Menino, has collected more than $20,000,000 and two town meetings are being planned (very carefully orchestrated) by the fund administrator. The money is being rushed out to the victims asap. Far, far more quickly than in the case of BP or 9/11.

Perhaps this is the way it should be. These are unexpected deaths and injuries and the victims need the money right now. Perhaps officials are learning to streamline the process. Perhaps there are more casualties than we know about. There certainly are more injuries.

Coincidence or "God" trying to get our attention?

As I was driving through the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont on a soft spring day last Friday I was left wondering if the news events of last week were God's way of getting our attention (though it is most probably random chance). First there was a terrorist incident that lasted five full days ending with martial law being declared for 20 hours in Boston. Then, in the middle of the week, there was the mega-blast at the fertilizer plant in the town of West, in Texas. Then there were the ricine-laced letters sent to Obama and the Senator from Mississippi.

I don't think it matters if it was God or not, somebody or thing is trying to get our attention and it is best we watch and listen carefully.

I am burnt-out on the news. It is time for me to find some quiet time.

Boston Bombings Strange Facts #2

There were 4 crosses in a memorial near Boylston St. in the aftermath. Three of them were marked with the names of the three civilians who were killed in the bombings. The fourth was unmarked.

Boston Bombings Strange Facts #1

After one week the number of injuries in the Boston bombings has been revised upward by 100 from 164 to 264. How strange is that? Consider that in such situations the total of wounded goes up for a day or two in drips and drabs. I've never seen it revised by an even hundred seven days after the fact.

Who are these extra wounded? This is not a case of additional hospitals picking up the wounded that day or an additional 100 from the firefight early last Friday morning, though there were a few casualties, I believe.

Jerry Garcia Amphitheater

Who's in charge? I've never been on Facebook so I'm out of the loop. I hope Parks and Rec doesn't go through with it!!

couric/palin interview

The woman is a twit, but she never said 'I can see Russia from my house'. That was Tina Fey in an SNL skit parodying Palin. Palin said some equally dumb things to Couric though in the real interview. Here's the actual interview.

So much to write on the Boston Marathon bombings

There is much to write about from several different angles. I will slowly get to it as the facts unravel. There are some real doosies out there (facts, that is). I am sensing that nobody really wants to hear the truth, or as close to it as possible. Everybody would rather hear Neil Diamond croon "Sweet Caroline" before a Sox game at Fenway. It did happen. They flew him in first class.

We were made to feel good about our City, State and Country. And that is one of the stories...

~ Sweet Caroline! (Whoa, whoa, whoa) Good Times never seemed so good! ~
