A New Dawn

Now America can finally heal. And I think it started an hour ago.

Thank you Ohio, Florida and Virginia for keeping it real.

To the future and to change.

Simple Math

So we’re spending about $341 million a day on this horrid unnecessary lost war.

If we stopped funding it for about 146 days. Every American could have health care for a year based on Obama’s health care plan. He decided to just tax the rich. Now that’s something I can get behind.

And to think this is sort of how our school system and libraries got their start. Ooooh scary! Socialism. It’s bad. BAD! But kinda good.

$700 Bailout?

Bailout? Are you kidding me? Emily said the media should be calling this a “scandal.” No shit. This ain’t no bailout. This ain’t no disco. She’s right. It’s a scandal. It makes me sick.

The long weekend was awesome. Apple picking with the extended fam didn’t happen because of the rain, but instead the reunion happened in the Aunt and Uncle’s “room we never use”. Lily went to her first Rosh Hashanah service at a Temple that resembled a church. At least in the musicality. Seeing another Temple’s service was familiar but it was more foreign than anything. Luckily the row behind us entertained Lily a lot of the way through – that and Lily slept through most of it. Two notes there: 1) There are many o’ nannies in West Chester – many with whom I met walking with Lily in the stroller outside. 2) There are sadly way too many formula fed babies in West Chester. Meeting Opus (he says we’ve met before, but I don’t believe him) was mega cool. He’s such a stud. And getting to see a Colbert Report taping was mad cool. James Taylor was the guest. He played great and did this awesome duet (Carolina On My Mind) with Stephen Colbert. It was cool seeing Stephen out of character for 5 minutes. What I didn’t get was how bad James Taylor was on camera. 40+ years in the biz and he can’t do a good interview?! This past trip I decided to limit my visit to Manhattan to once. I like it that way. Emily got a day to do and see her things. And I got a day to walk around with Lily next to the trees.

And Al, thanks for the Lucky Fortune recommendation. My beef with veggies was awesome. But Em’s eggplant and garlic was mad deep fried.

Tomorrow will be a good day. Em has some things to finish up. I have two mastering projects and a client meeting. Then a Kadman show. A good day filled with fillings.

Glad to be back home to normalcy. Well, you get the idea.
