We’re heading back into a monsoon-y pattern here in the Valley of the Sun. A few thoughts while I try to put together my Goodboys Invitational recap:

Remembering King Curtis, sax player extraordinaire. I remember his performances on John Lennon’s Imagine album on “It’s So Hard” and “I Don’t Wanna Be A Soldier, I Don’t Wanna Die”, the latter also featuring a Phil Spector “Wall of Sound” production and some cool droning slide guitar by George Harrison.

Why are liberals so keen on limiting something as fundamental to American freedom as speech? Because they’re fascists at heart, that’s why. And God forbid if you disagree with them in any way – they’ll crawl right down your throat. But what do I know? After all, I’ve been told that I’m an intellectual guy…

Not sure why they’re coming to the game now – the Obama administration was separating families long before ICE was doing it under President Trump’s administration – but good for United Airlines. I always like to see private companies stepping up to do the right thing. But I can’t help but wonder why United wouldn’t provide the same kind of outreach to bring young families separated by parents serving in the military together?

Reading this, I hope the Trump administration comes down in favor of eliminating electronic machines from federal elections and go back to paper. Sure, there will always be opportunities for shenanigans even with paper ballots, but nothing compared to the level of mischief that can occur with electronic machines.

Well, duh!

Because it’s worked so well historically, right? If it were, why on earth would a country as oil-rich as Venezuela be an economic basket-case, and why would folks from Central America be flooding Mexico’s southern border to get to the U.S.? But that’s OK, the Democrats have economic geniuses to tell us otherwise.

To read the beat writers and opinion writers in the Boston Globe and Boston Herald obsess over the relationship between quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick is to understand why people have come to hate the media so much. The team has been incredibly successful, Belichick is all about winning and has the track record to prove it, and Brady is, arguably, the greatest quarterback of all time. So why not focus on that instead of ginning up off-field controversies that aren’t there? If at some point it all starts to go sour, then perhaps it would be time to explore why that is. But to constantly be looking for ghosts that don’t exist and blow up inconsequential side issues into controversies of epic proportions is to reduce their coverage of the Pats to caricature and sophomoric so-called “journalism”.

Congratulations to President Donald Trump on a great week. When even CNN is admitting Trump has had a great week you know you’re doing something right. Now, back to your regularly-scheduled programming and that meeting with the Russians at Trump Tower….
