Cartoons, week of 09.27.09

This week, the United Nations took center stage. I was remind that there was a boogey man, and not only is he very scary and real, he can sometimes make me laugh. I don't know if Chavez, Ahmadinejad and Quadifi are funny looking and sounding because they are from different cultures and the voice-overs are amusing... but perhaps because the things they say and the things they stand for are so frightening, that short of soiling myself, I laugh.

Polanski was arrested Sunday when he entered Switzerland to accept a lifetime achievement award. This whole situation confuses me. Being a huge movie fan as well as a huge Polanski fan (he directed more of my top 20 favorite movies than any other director) it troubles me that this charge is still out there and more importantly, it has yet to be resolved. What he did was wrong and he should pay for his crimes, but really, Switzerland? Of all countries, a country that has tried to stay out all wars and not take a stand on anything?? Interesting.

Georgia has enjoyed over 10" of rain over the past 3 weeks. Needless to say the ground ain't thirsty anymore...

Cartoons, week of 09.20.09

It was Racism week at Mark Morgan. It was too important not to comment on. One thing I have learned form all of this, Racism is not Dead. Even though we have elected an African American as our president, we still have miles to go. I hope we are making strides, but with comments like Jimmy Carter's and outburst by "celebrities" like Kanye West, I think not.

I do want to give props to Beyonce, who gave her spotlight to Taylor Swift who was rudely upstaged by Kanye. She gets a big "A" for being a class act... shame on the rest of you fanning the flames for personal gains and marketing ploys. You disgust me...
