Happy Independence Day

There's more to this post - click here!

fireworks.jpg I found myself in Las Vegas this Independence Day.

As dark fell tonight, I noticed that the roof of the parking structure adjoining my hotel might offer wonderful views of the various fireworks displays put on by the hotels on the strip. As it turns out, a couple hundred other folks noticed the same thing. But just as the celebrations started to get underway, we were beset by a disorganized posse of Hilton security guards, who were on a mission to clear the structure "for security."

We discovered Cannon Beach Oregon this week. Stayed at "The Inn at Cannon Beach." Awesome.

"Everything Is Illuminated"

Posted by spblat on May 26, 2006 10:58 PM

I'll take this over some random comedy any day.

Funny, touching, awkward, poignant, devastating. Amazing cinematography, unbelievably great music, and a dead-serious storyline.

And this really cool deranged dog.

Heather says the book was even more lighthearted and funny in the beginning, and even more disturbing nearer the end. So I may have to check that out too.

Dear Senator McCain

Posted by spblat on May 24, 2006 10:36 PM

Dear Senator McCain:

I count myself among many liberals: indignant and upset over the state of our country, focusing our collective displeasure on President Bush and the republican congressional majority.

But I write to express my profound support for you as a man of integrity, respect and intellect. Each time I see you speak (most recently on Larry King’s show tonight) my respect for you is upheld.

I wish we had more leaders like you.

I wish all our public servants were willing to participate in honest debate with the respect you show your opponents.

And most of all, I wish you had prevailed against George W. Bush in 2000.

I look forward to reading your latest book, and I wish you continued success and happiness.

Respectfully yours,

Will Irace
