Memori-Al Weekend!

Tomorrow I drive down to Winter Haven, FL to see the King of Parody himself, "Weird Al" Yankovic, live in concert at Cypress Gardens! Scoff if you must, but this guy puts on a terrific show. Besides, ain't nobody more "White N' Nerdy" than me. Unfortunately, I waited too long to get reserved seating, so we're in the last row of a side section. Oh well, if he does "You're Pitiful," it will all be worth it.

Chris Matthews calls Jack Kingston on his misrepresentation

HT to Tondee's Tavern:
It takes a while to get to the good stuff, but our boy Jack really hit a nerve when he compared the occupation of Iraq to the ongoing presence of American troops in Germany and South Korea. Chris was not happy. I love it when the MSM wakes up, even for a moment, and remembers what they ought to be doing.

He's Alive!

So, Mother's Day came and went with no word from my brother. We were disappointed, but not surprised. Tad has not always been the best about sending cards or calling on Hallmark days. Just got a call from Mom. Mother's Day card from Tad came in the mail today! No return address. Postmarked Chicago. No real details, but he's okay! I'll take what blessings I can, thank you very much. I still hold out hope that we'll see him again soon, but it does feel good just to know he's okay. We Love you Tad! Hope you are happy. Our best to everyone there.
