DO WATCH THE STATE OF THE UNION

A wise person once told us "life has more imagination than we do". With that bit of wisdom, we view Tuesday's State of Union Address by a president facing removal in the Senate as a unique moment in history. 
A different leader would ignore the upcoming vote which is the politically correct move. Rise above the controversy we say. 

BTW Monday is the 61st  anniversary of the day the music died. 

Florida Supreme Court: Any additional thoughts on the politicization of Florida's highest court? The Court has not been this criticized since an ex-justice was arrested in 1982 and charged with conspiring to traffic in over 10,000 pounds of marijuana. For double blog bonus points...Name that Justice! 


US SUPREME COURT  ARGUMENT DOCKET FOR MARCH:
Notice a trend? 

 Trump v. Vance, arising from efforts by the Manhattan district attorney to obtain several years’ worth of Trump’s tax returns as part of a state grand-jury investigation, and the consolidated cases of Trump v. Mazars and Trump v. Deutsche Bank, in which congressional committees are seeking financial records from Trump’s accounting firm and lenders. 

If you took our advice and didn't watch the super bowl, what did you do? We went for a long bike ride and then returned to a cold home and had some home made soup and watched "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" with Spencer Tracey, Katherine Hepburn and Sidney Poitier.  I was on TV the day before and we recorded it. 

It wasn't that long ago that people of color were politely referred to as "negroes". Spencer Tracey says at least once in referring to Poitier's character as "that colored fella". This was also a  very common form of speech in the 1960s.

It was SRO at Ye Olde Cigar Shoppe in far west kendall for the Super Bowl, but the dude knows how to throw a party. Everyone outside got a heaping plate of paella and a stogie on the house and chairs and tables were set up. Round about 2am a limo pulled up, guy came out went in and bought 5K of Arturo Fuentes and Macanudo Prince Phillips and took off. Rumor was it was the 49ers O line.

Ok Rump de la Rumpole we are one day out. Please stop the nonsense and tell us how you always pick the coin toss in the super bowl correctly?
It's driving me nuts. My GF says the comment yesterday is correct that the coin toss is taped and you get an early peak but I don't think that is correct because the stadium is live in the background of the toss.
Fess up fester.
