Back to Blogging

OK. Holidays over. Time to get back to the blog. I needed a bit of a break, I think. Some quick updates:

1. I finished McMurtry's "Lonesome Dove." I'll be writing a more detailed review; but the short of it is that I liked it very much. On the whole, a thumbs up, though I do have some criticisms. I've also watched the movie version and thought it was very good, too.

2. New Year's Resolutions coming soon in a separate follow-up posting.

3. Still proud of Barack Obama. If he gets serious about the debt situation, which I think he will (especially if he finds common ground on this issue with someone like Tom Coburn), he'll be in great shape for 2012.

4. The only disappointment I have with the 2008-2010 Congress is failure to pass the DREAM Act. My greatest joy about the 2008-2010 Congress is passage of the Health Care legislation and repeal of DADT.

5. The Saints are in the Playoffs and have a good, realistic chance of making it to the Superbowl again. Looking forward to the post-season run. I predict that the NFC Championship game will be in New Orleans, with the Saints hosting the Packers.

6. Finally, let's start the New Year with this bit of "Wow!" ...

Glad to see you back, Huck! Look forward to your Lonesome Dove review and your resolutions. In deference to the effectiveness of 'Nudges', I made New Year Ultimatums this year instead of Resolutions... failure to complete them means I have to send $100 to Obama's re-election campaign.

And that video was amazing.
I'm taking my daughter to her first basketball practice this afternoon. Maybe she'll be the first ever member of our family to be any good at it!
