Disease Transfer Centers

After emerging from the hospital three weeks ago after missing the bullet of a stroke, I've now been broadsided by a cold.....a cold that was facilitated by my daughter bringing it home from the 'Disease Transfer Center' aka school.


On a lighter note, I have located the cable to download photos from this past weekend's Operation Proud Banner; I just have to get my head clear enough to put the after-action report together with the appropriate photos.

With that in mind, I'm going to lay down and take a nap.

Richard 'Butt Monkey' Belzer Bloviates

I've seen this over the last few days and have been debating as to whether I should comment on Richard's superb lack of finesse; this appears to be another 'Butt Monkey Launch':

'Law & Order' actor: I know more about war than troops

According to actor and comedian Richard Belzer, American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan are too uneducated to be expressing support for the U.S. military mission since they're just "19 and 20-year-old kids who couldn't get a job" and "they don't read twenty newspapers a day."

Belzer, who's best known as Detective John Munch on NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street" and "Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit," is a frequent guest on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." On one previous appearance, he threatened to walk off the set when told columnist Ann Coulter was also appearing, calling her a "fascist party doll." On Friday night's live broadcast, Belzer attacked claims by fellow guest Florida Congresswoman Ileanna Ros-Lehtinen's that U.S. soldiers continue to express support for the war.

In the lively exchange, captured by the website NewsBusters, Belzer dismisses Ros-Lehtinen accounts of meeting with troops in Iraq and their credibility as "bull----."

As I mention in my little sidebar on the right-hand side called 'About Me', I point out that getting offended here in the U.S. isn't a right that's guarenteed under the Bill of Rights and this is where my own words come back to haunt me: I can't really get bent out of shape because of putz from Hollywood comes across like he's a genius as compared to us dumb 19 or 20 year olds that couldn't get a job and joined the military instead.

Richard, you're a decent actor and a comic, but you might want to walk a mile or two in ourshoes/boots before you start bloviating. You're just another example of why people get tired of the Hollywood nimrods that seem to think that because you're able to portray a character on the small or big screen that it gives you gravitas to make such broad statements about the caliber of people in the American military. I enlisted 20 years ago not because I didn't have any options in front of me - I wanted to serve my country.

In other words Dick: Step the F*ck Off!

Current Earworm

Currently obsessing over 'That Was Yesterday' and it's bass line....and not because I'm lamenting a lost love - it's just a....moving song IMHO.

One of the things that I've missed doing lately is playing my bass and it's songs like this one that get me motivated to return to one of my former passions of life.

I'm sure there are musicians out there - and I'm proud to say that I'm one - that can understand my perspective on this....

Anyone familiar with the bass in this song?
