Apollo 4 on column of fire

Regarding Montel Williams

I’ve grown since the old days when I watched Montel on TV a lot, but he hasn’t kept up with me. (Not surprising, because I have moved past television itself. :) )

Ron Reagan and Jack Rice are much, much better among the more recent Air Americans.

(And, of course, the best of the best Air Americans is SENATOR Alan S. Franken. :) And the election system here worked just fine, by the way; it took so long precisely because the system functioned as designed.)

Where are the media priorities?

How can the media be covering the memorial for Michael Jackson so intensively, yet completely ignore that Flook is getting together for one last concert?!!!

(Too bad it’s in Belfast and not Minneapolis.)

Keith Olbermann gets my gall

I just watched Keith Olbermann make completely baseless accusations against Michael Scheuer, of ‘disloyalty’ and ‘giving aid and comfort to the enemy’.

Look. Michael Scheuer is a complete loon, which, unlike many others of my left-leaning persuasion, I recognized immediately upon his coming out of the shadows. Frankly, Scheuer is Hitler-like in his opinions and his recent statements are completely in character and not at all a disappointment to me; he was like this all along. But I never dreamt of calling him disloyal or of befriending an ‘enemy’. Bush, sure – but never Michael Scheuer.

This may come as a shock to Keith Olbermann, but it is not illegal nor even unethical to count on a bad occurrence to shock people into action. I do it all the time; for instance I hope New York gets flooded by natural causes if that’s what it takes to get us moving seriously on climate change and hurricane preparedness, especially after New Orleans didn’t do it. Am I a freaking traitor, Keith Olbermann?

The whole point of this is that it is other people who are leaving the nation in bad shape, and one hopes their failures become apparent soon enough.
