Over the past couple weeks, I've found myself nodding in agreement with Al Sharpton (on Bill Maher, not in any substantive debate). Now, I find myself reading Pat Buchanon and agreeing.
I know nothing about Australian papers. In Britain (and New York) there's some where you just ignore them out of hand and others where you pick and choose what to believe. That said, I'm curious what the status is of the The Age. It looks respectable, but I want serious context on this article. The only excuse for these kinds of statements are being drastically misquoted, being insane, or simply being the kind of crank that tests my love for the freedom of all speech.
I watched David Lynch's "Mulholland Dr." today. Actually, I finished watching it, having stopped and started over a couple sittings. I don't understand a minute of it. I loved Blue Velvet, but that was coherent. David Lynch is an amazing visual director and among the best at sustaining a mood, but even if one of you could explain this to me, I'm not sure I want to know.
The Astros are actively trying to move Richard Hidalgo. Only Drayton McLane's reluctance to eat any of the contract is holding up a deal at this point and Hidalgo may not open the season in Houston.
