To you who voted for Prop 8

I know you probably won’t watch this because after you “won” you would have stuck your head in the sand with fingers in your ears not wanting to see or listen to a dissenting opinion but it has to be said.

No picture from me but go visit my wife’s blog and she can tell you how we both feel. Keith Olberman (in the video above) says it incredibly well too. If you voted for Prop 8, or WOULD HAVE voted for Prop 8, you should be ASHAMED of yourself!

All day, every day

While Cathy and I were going through our 48 hour marathon of West Wings (during my recuperation) she mentioned that there were only so many shows you could watch in this way. All day. Here are mine in no particular order.

  • The West Wing
  • LOST
  • Red Dwarf
  • Mr. Bean
  • Young Ones
  • Monty Python’s Flying Circus
  • Blackadder
  • Sports Night
  • Doctor Who
  • Mystery Science Theater 3000
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Suddenly I’m up on top of the world

Overheard during the Nathan’s Famous International July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest.

“You Google ‘Hero’ tomorrow, ‘American hero,’ you’re gonna get Abe Lincoln, possibly Neil Armstrong, Taylor Hicks, and then this man, of course, Joey Chestnut*.

Yeah, those are MY American heroes. Oh, and William Katt

and then a little later this lovely “chestnut” as well (heh)…

“This would be the greatest moment in the history of American sports if Chestnut could bring the belt home to Coney Island, it’s been gone for nine years.”

and I think I’ll sleep a little better tonight knowing our country is a little better off …

“Unbelievable valor from that man Joey Chestnut. He may indeed have changed the course of this nation. Righted the course of our nation. Chestnut is a true American hero”

I still think William Katt could kick his ass. If he could ever figure out how to fly in a straight line.

Oh, and Happy Fourth of July!

* Joey Chestnut is a Civil Engineering major from San Jose State University. So let’s hear it for the local boy. Woo hoo!!

PS – Thanx WIFE for stealing my thunder.  🙂
