Halftime at the Super Bowl, so I'll jot down a few things. The wind shifted from blowing westward to blowing eastward, right off the Pacific...which on these shores is one cold, treacherous piece of water. Yesterday: warm and sunny. Today: dark and stormy with light rain from time to time. At least in this part of San Diego. This city has nine separate micro-climates, so it may well be sunny somewhere else within the city limits, rainy here, fogbound there. Which is why our weather people are constantly tearing their hair out when predictions go wrong.
Pizza day here too. From Giovanni's Italian Restaurant. Double cheese. Yum!!!
Speaking of movies, the ones I'd really like to see are "Sideways" and "Hitch". And possibly, "Mr.Mrs". "Hitch" stars Will Smith, and he's always a kick. Think of him and I grin. Can't help it. "Mr.Mrs" has a set of very interesting posters. And "Sideways" has to be outrageous. Anybody see Mel Gibson's religious film? I had no interest in that one. Didn't see Moore's "Farenheit 9/11" either, for the same reason. Both propaganda heavy, seemed to me.
I keep reading that since we're there and since there have been elections in Iraq, that's what we should all be paying attention to and to hell with before...go forward. Ah, and wouldn't BushCo love for us all to forget how we wound up in that country before? You bet. Yes, we have to focus on the future. But that doesn't require forgetting the past. Johnson managed to pull off a very successful election in Vietnam too, but consider what happened afterward. Also did our best to train the south Vietnamese to take care of security for that country...for all the good it did in the end. The only way Vietnam ended up as it is now was for us to get the hell out of their way and let them settle it. Which they did. I suspect the same will have to happen in Iraq. People will just not tolerate invaders telling them what to do forever, easily. Hard to tell how all this will turn out.
We'd best pay some attention to what's happening here at home. Too much is not good at all. Bad as he is, I'd like the Chief Justice of the Supreme's to outlast Bush's term in office, for fear of getting somebody a hell of a lot worse. That is one scary thought.
