No Wire Hangers EVER!

Life on Mars: Season Two

Almost finished with Life on Mars, Season Two. BBC America has been airing the show Tuesday nights at 9:00 PM Eastern, with a repeat of the previous week at 8:00 PM Eastern. As good as Season One, with more hints that Sam isn't where he should be. But does that still mean he's from 2006? Episode 8 this week will clear everything up. My squirrel sense tells me that Sam is messed up no matter where he's from and where he winds up. By the way, there's some excellent fan fic over at Live Journal (for example, Fans of LOM). - X

Attack Ads: That Ominous Voice

In case you're in a state where there's an early primary or caucus, here's an attack ad to make you smile.

Election 08 - It's Too Damn Early

Neither of us is convinced we'll see anything good come of the early primaries and caucuses. Mostly the blood-letting will affect interesting candidates who the establishments won't let win (Ron Paul) and those who should have quit long ago (John Edwards). Frank Rich had one of his usual scathing op-ed pieces in the NYT today, bashing Republicans who think Reagan can be resurrected and who think they can win Black votes by claiming "my daddy marched with Dr. King." Of course, some candidates (John McCain) are old enough themselves to have marched with King, though McCain himself was busy at the time overseas trying out different hotels.

One bizarre note: when I was typing this post, I left out the "F" in Frank Rich's name in the labels box. Once I inserted the "F," Blogspot suggested "Freakazoid." As you can see, they look almost identical. - X
