Deadheads evolution

Another zombie movie. I don't like the whole trend of zombies in video games, AMC's The Walking Dead, the new Rolling Stones tune. Yuk! The dead don't rise again, sorry.

This is not the movie we are expecting

Just found this on the web. Not what I was expecting to find with "Deadhead" in the title. I think a title change is badly in order.

Guess who gets their budget restored first?

Well, the sequester was supposed to cut evenly across the board but right away Congress is moving to restore the FBI, Customs and Border Control and Defense readiness programs. The precedent is not good if it goes through. It is a perfect foil for the Repubs. to get what they always wanted... cuts to social welfare programs and and government restored where they find it useful (or vital).

Good News! Possibke cure for AIDS

An infant born to a mother with AIDS seems to have been cured by a three drug cocktail administered from birth for 18 months. The usual course of treatment calls for continuation of the anti-viral cocktail indefinitely but the mother took the child away after 18 months. Upon return 5 months later an examination found no trace of AIDS. Length of treatment seems to be a key factor here as the drugs being used are pretty standard for this era. Doctors caution the child will have to be followed for quite a long time before an unmitigated success can be declared.

AIDS patients around the world have had their hopes raised by this but the very specific circumstances (birth to a known AIDS patient with immediate treatment) should not get their hopes raised.

But, Hoo-Ray for good news for a change.

Rodman's exterior......

always makes me laugh. A fellow freak; that's all. I did see the interview and it would be a pretty cool chapter in American history if basketball was the common denominator for peace talks with NK. I also understand the feeling of wondering how anything serious could come from such an apparition..........and then I wonder how many countless times throughout the years that exact sentiment has been placed upon us deadheads. Rots and rots, I'm guessin'.

Re: Rodman interview

Maybe it's just me, but after seeing the interview with Dennis Rodman I have to say that the sentiment he expresses is just basic human relations. What if Obama picked up the phone and had a conversation about basketball? The NK leader would have an opening to propose a gesture.

Only a black man has the chutzpah (and right) to answer a reporters question about Kim enslaving 200,000 of his own people in labor camps, saying "We do the same thing in this country." (presumably he speaks of the ghettos where the poor and black people are concentrated or "that side of town" in many cities, especially across the South.

I will say it is hard to take anybody seriously who is tattooed from the neck up and many other parts of his body with many piercings holding large pieces jewelry in their face and wearing a coat that is covered with pictures of currency. I always feel, right or wrong, how could something serious come from such a person?

Dennis Rodman returns from North Korea

I guess you can do anything for money...
Or a moment of sanity and sports diplomacy.
The North Korean hermit nation is beyond Kafkaesque

(Rodman is a buffoonish, washed-up NBA basketball player totally tattooed from the neck up.)
