Random Thoughts (Six)
I don't have anything really important concerning politics or world events to write about today. There isn't much on the net today either that offers much in the way of new information on topics I've posted about the past few days. So, today it's just crap no one would really care about.
I'll be busy the next week or so. My son and I are going to see Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and Autumn Defense, also made up of Wilco members, in Tarrytown, NY on Monday. This will be the 13th time I've seen either Tweedy or Wilco live. I never thought I'd ever want to see a musical act so often but every performance is so different. The set-lists are varied from show to show plus they are one of the best bands to see live. Next Sunday we'll be going on a bus trip to the new Meadowland's Stadium to see the NY Jets and the Miami Dolphins play. It will be the first NFL game I've seen since the Jets played in the now demolished Shea Stadium back in the early 80's. Several folks I work with will be going as well. I hope we have a stretch of global warming next weekend because it is pretty damn cold today. After Christmas I'll be seeing a reunion of the alt-rock legends The Jayhawks in NYC. They are expected to play their first album Hollywood Town Hall in its' entirety. It happens to be my favorite album of theirs.
It was neat to see the UCONN football team win the Big East title last night. Getting a BCS Bowl bid is quite an accomplishment for a team that couldn't beat UMASS a few years ago. The NCAA still needs to institute a playoff system for college football.
The Red Sox have finally made a move by obtaining a big bat in the form of Adrian Gonzalez in a trade with the Padres. They gave up some good prospects but they had to do something like this to make up for their reluctance to spend a few extra bucks for Mark Teixeira a couple of years ago. Hopefully they improve that bullpen and find another outfielder. The buzz has sort of left the Red Sox since they dumped Manny Ramirez. This might help get some of it back again.
I'd like to thank Bernice Moore and Jim Fetzer for sending me tons of articles and links to articles for me to consider for posting here. It will take me some time to go through them all but a few have already been posted and many more will be appearing soon. They both are two of the more respected JFK assassination researchers out there. Jim has published several excellent books on the JFK assassination and Bernice has a treasure trove of JFK related articles and photos that she graciously shares with readers and researchers on the several JFK forums that are out there on the net. I told her she should start her own blog. Jim already has. Here's the link: http://jamesfetzer.blogspot.com/
Until the next time I have an original thought, Peace and stay warm.
