Death be not Proud.....

Anyone who has watched CBS 60 Minutes knows what a treasure we have lost when award-winning television journalist Ed Bradley died this Thursday of leukemia. Ed was just one more of those individuals who made you almost unaware of his race, so powerful and unique was his own unique personality. Like Peter Jennings, Ed was the kind of reporter and interviewer whose integrity I never thought to question, and was the kind of person that those who revile the "liberal" press would happily avoid getting the attention of. Go rest, Ed, you did your job, you did it well, and now any and all questions you ever had are now answered, you lucky dog. You'd share those answers with us if you could.


As far as those complaints go concerning having only the lessor of two evils to choose from in political races, I refer you to this news item which demonstrates quite aptly just how powerful the voice of the electorate can be.


And on a lighter note, Representative Bobert Blob (R) was just elected House MINORITY leader, a position he did not seek, and has threatened not to serve in.

He was one hell of a journalist.

I read the article about the election of the deceased woman. Interesting. The voters don't know who will be appointed but an unknown was preferable to the incumbent. This shows the frustration level of voters.
