Because Everybody Is Entitled To My Opinion

Quick Thoughts

Writer Strike

The writer's strike is over. My feelings... Was there a writer's strike? I didn't miss them. I think the Discovery Channel probably made some great gains in viewership over the last 100 days. I watched a lot of Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs. Everybody is glad that it is resolved in time to save the Oscars. Methinks the writers were waiting for that. Hollywood is not about to forego patting itself on the back. They have to show the world how important they really are and after all they can't do it unscripted.

Berkeley Brouhaha

Personaly I think anyone who sides with Code Pink is a few red bricks short of a complete Lego set. But the city council attacks the Marines and calls them unwanted and intruders. THEN when people threaten to have federal funds witheld they change their tune. Oh they don't apologize but they claim now that they were merely stating their displeasure with the war and not the Marines. "We support the troops but not the war!" Yeah right. So now they have voted not to send their original dispicable letter and to send one with calmer anti-war not anti-Marine language. What gets me is that they had to go through a marathon overnight council meeting to reach that point. How liberal does your leadership have to be that it takes all night to decide that attacking the Marines was a bad thing?

Amy Winehouse

5 out of 6 grammys. That is quite an accomplishment. I can't help but wonder about the wisdom in promoting a woman who's biggest hit has to do with rehab where she is currently (and reluctantly) going through treament. Her drug issues are what kept her from even coming to the U.S. to get her awards. Also if the titles of some of her songs are any indication, she has quite a foul mouth. I'd rather the kids listen to Hanna Montanna.
