* Count me as one that thinks Hillary Clinton will make a good Secretary of State. I mean, as good a SoS as a Brack Obama administration can be expected to appoint. She might be good.

* I’m looking out over my tranquil pool and patio tonight with our flowers in bloom and find it hard to believe that somewhere on earth – like in my co-worker Kim’s Ohio backyard – there’s already a foot of snow, with snow showers expected throughout the weekend.

* The vibraphone is one of my all-time favorite instruments. Whenever I hear one, my ability to focus on anything else is, how you say, impaired.

* …and the ukelele is not far behind in that regard.

* John Blakeley of the surf band The Sandals is a very underrated guitarist.

* The Coco Crisp trade today tells me the Red Sox are gonna shop reliever Manny Delcarmen and prospect Michael Bowden to the Texas Rangers for catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

* The Journey Home on EWTN, a show that interviews former Catholics, Protestants, and formerly non-churched people who have returned or converted to Roman Catholicism is a great program. I see something of myself in every person they interview.

* Jerome Pascua, where are you, dude?

* Ditto Septuagenarian Sarah. We miss you, heck, all the Goodboys miss you!

* George Harrison’s “Living In The Material World” is an underrated album.

* As is The Ventures’ “Surfin’ To Baja”

* Mark my words – neither Michelle Wie or John Daly will ever win another professional golf tournament. What a combined colossal waste of talent.

* Didn’t I tell you that an Obama election would drive the Dow down towards 7000? But then again, no one listens to The Great White Shank. “The One” better be “The Savior”, or he’ll be run outta town on the rails.

* Enough of all this Pentecost season green, this guy is ready for some Advent purple!

  1. Didn’t I tell you that an Obama election would drive the Dow down towards 7000? But then again, no one listens to The Great White Shank. “The One” better be “The Savior”, or he’ll be run outta town on the rails.

    Aren’t you giving Obama a lot of power to be able to drive down the stock market? I see this as everything in our economy contributing to the failing financial structure…Auto industry, jobless rate increase, cut backs, bailouts, handouts, down and outs, etc. The auto exec’s blatant slap in the face by using their 2oG private jet round trip costs, the failing real estate situation, bad choices people made to drive themselves into insurmountable debt in order to “keep up with the Jones’s, out of control credit card spending which leads to bankruptcy, etc. We are a nation of “phantom money”, greed and access to excess. This downward spiral has been inching closer to the edge of the cliff for years. It’s just that now we’re at the edge and it’s a long way down. But what do I know…I am just a simple social worker.
