I don't like to promote an upcoming post, because there's always the chance that it will not live up to the hype. But in this case I will; I have one coming up, right now I am calling it: The European Mystique.
But for now, I feel little inspiration and have even less time to find some, so I will do what I always do. And that is, inject my opinionated rhetoric into some of today's news stories.
Pelosi Nixes Hastings For Committee Chair
Smart move. Hastings would have been a tremendous mistake. I cannot for the life of me figure out why she would even consider a man that was impeached as a judge, for the Intelligence Committee. Question is, will she still bypass Harman?
PYY will take a more wait and see attitude, before singing her praises, just yet.
Pope In Turkey (So Far So Good)
So far, the Pope's trip is uneventful. After the usual tense exchange of superficial pleasantries, the Pope called for the standard "we need to have a better dialogue" response. Then, as if that wasn't enough for one day, he really hit the political issues, confirming his stance that Turkey should be admitted to the EU.

Jackson Calls For Boycott Of Seinfeld DVD
I guess there are people that just do not want this to die.
Look. What Richards did was wrong and I condemn it. He is the one that needs to apologize and he has. Whether the black community wants to forgive him or not, that's up to them, not me. But I fail to see the fairness in calling for a boycott of something that Seinfeld is doing. Jerry is not responsible for Richards' actions, why should people punish him?
Well, that's all we have time for today. Join us next time and we will teach you all how to train a hippopotamus.
