Stop the Jesus Halo pictures!

I saw the bottom image in an Associated Press article today on Yahoo! News. As an Obama supporter, even I am getting tired of the way some media folks are treating the President. There's a lot of criticism that some have "annointed" Obama as a "Messiah" to rescue us from the George W. Bush mess. That's one thing...but can the media stop framing pictures to depict Obama as Jesus? It's too obvious.

On Entertainment Tonight, there was a long feature the blonde anchor from the weekend show hanging out with Octomom. Octomom was coming home with two of her babies from a doctor's appointment and the paparazzi were all over her large vehicle. They actually followed her into her garage and she had to call the police to clear them away. A helicopter was also following above. While the photogs were banging on the windows, she kept saying things like, "Geez, I'm just a mom. Leave me alone."

After the photogs were off her lawn, Octomom went inside where she let the Entertainment Tonight anchor cradle her child.

Uh, hello, if you want to be known as just a mom, don't let E-T in your home.

No reason for this


Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth hit and killed a man with his car over the weekend. I'm not going to use the word "allegedly" because it happened. What hasn't been determined or released yet is whether or not he was drunk or whatever.

The Miami newspaper as well as the Plain Dealer website has posted video from after the accident that shows paramedics treating the pedestrian that was hit. This is so wrong. It's tabloid journalism.

Media Fascination

Can someone please tell me why with the serious issues facing this country...why the warrant out for Lindsey Lohan is still newsworthy?

Do we really care?

Will Octomom please go away? And please, Access Hollywood and TMZ, stop giving this woman the attention she doesn't deserve.

When George W. Bush was in office and Democrats criticized him, Dems were called unpatriotic.

When George W. Bush was in office, Democrats criticized his spending and were met with deaf ears.

Now that Barack Obama is in office, why are Republicans so loudly objecting to having their criticism being called "unpatriotic"?

Now that Barack Obama is in office, why are Republicans laying into Barack's budge????!!!!

Close call

So, we on Earth were apparently almost hit by an asteroid. Check the line I boldfaced in the article below. Is there really a communications satellite that is 24,400 miles long/tall???? Is this true?

Phew! Asteroid's passing was a cosmic near-miss

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - An asteroid about the size of one that blasted Siberia a century ago just buzzed by Earth.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory reported that the asteroid zoomed past Monday morning.

The asteroid named 2009 DD45 was about 48,800 miles from Earth. That is just twice the height of some telecommunications satellites and about a fifth of the distance to the Moon.

The space ball measured between 69 ft. and 154 ft. in diameter. The Planetary Society said that made it the same size as an asteroid that exploded over Siberia in 1908 and leveled more than 800 sq. miles of forest.

Most people probably didn't notice the cosmic close call. The asteroid was only spotted two days ago and at its closest point passed over the Pacific Ocean near Tahiti.

The Face of the GOP

Hey, at first, Sarah Palin couldn't be the face of the GOP. Then Bobby Jindal fumbled away his shot at it in his best Mr. Rogers impression. Now, the GOP wants this guy, the Marlon Brando look-a-like, to be the face of the Republican party? That's good news for Democrats. Thank you, GOP!

A legend is gone

I wish I could have bottled up the charm and many spellbound minutes Paul Harvey gave me listening in the car on long rides as he would tell great stories like these.
