Up again but working on it

It’s earlier than it usually is when I do this. It’s only about midnight so I’m making progress in the fight against insomnia. If only their wasn’t such quality television or video gaming to be had. That also tends to keep me up later than I might wish.

One of the things I used to like to do after a long day in the entertainment trenches was to come home and watch a little Tech TV. I really liked a show called “The Screensavers’“. It’s a show devoted to all things tech and also served to educate while it entertained. All in all a good program with appealing people hosting and doing segments.

One of the people that made the show especially interesting was Morgan Webb. She did Windows tips and various other bits of info and has progressed to become co-host of another show, XPlay. This show is devoted to video games and the like. Her on-air skills have improved. She has come a long way.

But, just so people don’t think she is too much of a geek, she posed in the most recent issue of Maxim Magazine (on newsstands or in your mailbox now). Here’s one of the shots:


My friend ADD will appreciate this as he is a big fan of her (so am I). She has brains and looks. A great combo.

In other news, i caught both interviews with President Clinton recently. One with Dan Rather and one with Oprah (don’t say it). I must say he comes across pretty well and seems to be fairly sincere in his apologies and in his quest for forgiveness and redemption. Good for him. We could all use a little of that now and again.

I have to wonder though, was Monica the only one? If you believe the rumors he really had trouble keeping his dick in his pants for most of his life. I guess it’s easy to believe the rumors so some people will criticize and judge. I don’t know if he ever got busy with any other interns, staffers or sheep for that matter. It really doesn’t matter.

What matters now is what is happening to this country today. For the first time I don’t feel so good about calling myself an American. Some of the things we do and some of the reasons we do them seem very suspect to me. One big example is the abuse of prisoners in Iraq by our Marines.

We have the Geneva convention for a reason. We need to follow it. Always. Without exception. If we don’t how the hell can we expect other countries or terrorist organizations to even think about following it. It’s simple, they won’t. As we are the leader of the free world (self-proclaimed as it is) we must live to a higher standard.

Because make no mistake, the whole world is watching. 24 hours a day. Seven days a week. 365 days a year. Watching and waiting for us to do something incredibly fucking stupid and have video tape show up on tv.

It makes us look like assholes is what it does. And I don’t want to live in a country with a bunch of assholes. I only hope it isn’t too late. I don’t think it is but then again, I’ve been wrong before. The next few months and years should prove quite interesting. if we last that long.

    Too many pictures of good looking babes on your website. What does your wife think of that?
    Still, I like your thoughtful analysis of the administration’s attitude toward the Geneva Convention. Did you see Peter Jennings on 20/20 on Friday night? He highlighted Guantanamo and the black hole it has become.
