Took me a bit of time to work my way back to Phoenix from Massachusetts yesterday thanks to thunderstorms (yes, in May!) that forced our plane to take a detour into Tucson, but I am back. A few thoughts:

Anyone who thought President Obama wasn’t supportive of gay marriage (rather than his views “evolving”) doesn’t understand the real, radical Obama. The only reason why he was finally forced to reveal his true self was that his VP finally outed him on “Meet The Press”.

The biggest story not being reported by the mainstream dino-media is that Eric Holder’s days as Attorney General are numbered. Not only is he the most racist and corrupt AG this country has had (and yes, I’m including Harry Daugherty and John Mitchell in that assessment), he’s playing with the wrong dude if he thinks Sheriff Joe Arpaio is going to kowtow to him.

Time for the Red Sox to call it a season. The team stinks, Josh Beckett needs to be traded somewhere – anywhere – and Jenny Dill needs to be replaced. It took me a while to get over Tina Cervasio when Heidi Watney came aboard (that pic could melt ice!) does, but Jenny Dell is as overmatched in her role as Bobby V. is in his.

Check out The Beach Boys on Jimmy Kimmel performing their new single “That’s Why God Made The Radio”. I think it’s a great song, and not bad for a bunch of guys in their ’70s. Can’t wait for the Vegas concert in two weeks and their new album to come out a week later.

There was a time when Frank Giuffrida’s Hilltop Steakhouse was the place for steaks in the Boston area. The restaurant was a landmark, and the place buzzed with the announcement of numbers (“4-26-14-130 for Sioux City”, “52, 79, 92,143 for Dodge City”) cracking over the loudspeaker. How times have changed! My family has been going there for the better part of forty years and the place is now a shadow of itself. No announcements, just a handful of people in rooms that were once packed with a frenzy of activity. Sure, nothing stays the same, but it’s still sad to see a legendary restaurant reduced to average food served by a bunch of disinterested teens.
