Farewell to Andy Williams.

Andy WIlliams singing "Moon River". Thank you Andy, for sharing your beautiful voice with us. You will be sorely missed x (1927-2012)

It is a great song. Love it.


Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

(moon river, wider than a mile)
(I'm crossin' you in style some day)
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after that same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

The Football Commissioner needs to be fired.

...To that end, (click here) Goodell has risked lawsuits over his tough punishments for a bounty scandal; he has suspended or otherwise disciplined some of the N.F.L.’s most popular players; and he brokered the deal that ended the long, bitter lockout of the league’s players last year....

Seriously, this is ridiculous. There is so much hype about instant replays and all kinds of electronic enhancements, to allow this call to stand is a gross injustice to everyone. If the commissioners authority and judgement has to be called into question, then it has to be.

There does not have to be retribution against part time referees, either. The strike should have been settled. This is a failure of the administration of these teams and the league. The owners and the commission allowed referees on the field who were not ready to assume this responsibility. It is not their fault they rose to the occasion to carry on the game. They actually crossed picket lines to do it. So, it isn't their problem, it is the commissioner's problem. I think the entire circumstance needs to be investigated, conclusions reached and appropriate action taken. It isn't the refs that were the problem. It is the commissioner standing behind an obvious bad call that is the problem and the fact he and the owners allowed less qualified officiating in the first place rather than settling the strike.

The electorate issues are not about winning. The media has it "W"rong.

The attack on minorities in this election ACROSS the country by Republican Governors is the issue. This is about Americans, legitimate minority voters, being removed from the ability to vote in 2012.

This is not the first time the Republican Party has STACKED THE DECK in recent history against minority votes. In 2000, an entire election was decided in Florida because of CORRUPTION targeting minority voters.

Americans vote. End of discussion. They vote WITHOUT barriers to their balloting. The day there are profound issues in impersonation and voter fraud THEN the entire country can take action against it. And I might add, the country doesn't sincerely know what EFFECTIVE action to take because it hasn't happened yet and we don't know the source of such fraud. 

There is NO research or PROOF anywhere to pin point the problem. The Republicans are stacking the deck based on Identity Theft Rhetoric. The fact of the matter is there is no way of knowing if Voter ID will even stop ALL forms of fraud. What the Republicans ARE doing is DEFRAUDING elections, not debunking identity theft.

The number of Americans that simply vote is a minority of the adults eligible. 

The Republicans are stacking the deck, just that simple. In the year 2012 we are seeing some of the worst non-violent bigotry this nation has ever witnessed.

The Republican Governors across the country are corrupt in their directives. They are corrupt in most of their dealings when it comes to civil rights, the rights of collective bargaining and education.

The TILT in all these areas and more is palpable. The Republican Party is a corrupt party and now they are blatant bigots.

Americans are being deprived of their rights and in no way can it be tolerated. 

The Republicans USE the electorate to achieve wins in the USA, that is not what this is about. This is about hard fought for rights stated in laws that have stood as the remedy to racism. This is about nullifying laws that have stood for decades of time and trampling the sacrifices of past generations. 

This isn't about winning, it is about justice.
