He was on SNL last night. And made this reference to questions about his age:
"Controlling government spending isn't just about Republicans or Democrats. It's about being able to look your children in the eye. Or in my case, my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and great-great-great-grandchildren, the youngest of whom are nearing retirement."
Now thats funny. I wonder if one of his staffers wrote the joke or someone from SNL? If it was the later, then he needs to hire that person full-time.

I am sure you have already heard about Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy (D-MA), the second longest serving Senator currently seated, had a seizure yesterday. As a representative of his State and a national leader, he has served his country very well. As a man, he has been a proverbial "trainwreck in slow motion." I think he never could figure out how to emerge from behind his older brothers' shadows. Wonder what his future personal and political plans are? He wields so much power "inside the beltway" that I can't imagine him actually retiring.

Called "The sport of kings", horseracing might just get its first "Triple-Crown" winner since 1978 in 3 weeks at the running of the Belmont Stakes. Big Brown has the first two jewels of the crown in hand hoof with his win yesterday at The Preakness and the earlier win at The Kentucky Derby. Of course, many others have come this far to walk away empty at the end.

Rescue efforts continue in China. Now more bodies are being recovered than victims rescued. And conditions continue to deteriorate.

And rescue and aid efforts still are being thwarted in Burma/Myanmar. Chose any story you want. You might note that some world leaders have started calling for the use of military force to provide humanitarian aid.

Think the child sex-slave industry is just located in poor small third-world nations? This story might just open your eyes to its global nature. Including right here in the good ol' USofA.

Thanks much for your visit. It warms my heart.

I'll be back later with more.

Enjoy your Sunday.
