I'm going to start calling this daily blog post: Hot Breakfast.‚ I usually have it ready by early morning now, so maybe you can read it while you are eating your canned peaches. Let's begin:
Our story on Mayor Daley calling out the lack of anti-war protests
has a bit of momentum. I thought this comment from Cheryl Noel was intriguing:
As absurd as his comments were/are to anyone who has been paying attention to his position on the war and the anti-war movement, I too stood and applauded for them. As the author of this article also acknowledges, his comments were seemingly genuine -- and personally I don't care what motivated them, selfish or not. The real issue for me, is that this was the first time I have heard anyone publically denounce Obama's war policies...
She goes on to attack Obama's campaign promises and misspell publicly a few more times, but she has a valid point: Is this Daley siding with progressives displeased with Obama's presidency, namely his war policies? Is Daley breaking ranks and taking on the President? With the Obama staff gunning for his job
) and now his son going back into war, is a fight a brewin'?
I'm confused. So CTA buses can actually go slower
Gotta love Feder
. Today's post is all about what to do if Pam Zekman calls you. That would be a weird scene to pick up your phone and have it be Pam Zekman. If it happened to me, I would think she would be calling about how I once shook the vending machine and two bags of chips came out. It has been haunting me.
Also, Robert, can you please do a post telling me what to do when Mark Saxenmeyer
Entertainment: Awesome photos from the Mos Def and Doom show
. Interesting theories abound about whether or not Doom sent an impostor to perform for him. I can't tell if this is a hilarious joke (because he performs in a mask) or if this is really an issue. I think I just got old.
I thought this weekend was nice enough for the weather. Even though it was cold, when the wind wasn't blowing it was actually bearable. I think this is a suitable winter temperature.
Vancouver 2010 is in high gear. Which means I watched 45 minutes of pair skating last night. HD is ruining figure skating. Yeah, I said it. You can see the flesh colored body-suits sticking out of arm sockets‚ and the weird leggings/pantyhose go over the skate. It's too close. Also, you really do see the close-up on the makeup disasters these skaters have been subjected to.‚ And they are all 16. I'd rather watch Nascar.
Andrew got this from someone
. It's a new viral video (that you probably saw over the weekend). It's the latest sensation - a really young Spanish rapper. I mean, like elementary school. It's gross how good he is playing this character...
