This & That

The name for this blog was inspired by “One-eyed Jack” Williams who had a radio program in Phoenix, Arizona about 35 years ago.... His “Quarter Hour of This and That”. Everyday he started out the program with the statement. “It is a beautiful day in Arizona and I suggest, leave us all enjoy it.” It did not mater if it was raining or sunny, in the middle of a sand storm or cold and miserable. It was always a beautiful day. It is still my favorite way to start the day.

The Day After...

After a beautiful Sunday, where in Iraq, the people celebrated the first milestone on their road to democracy. The world watched and prayed that the process would be successful, and although their were obstacles, even some of the detractors swallowed their words and admitted it was so.. Others however, did their best to impart a negative spin....notably the two K´s from Mass. It is sad indeed when you allow, what appears to be a personal hatred of one man, to effect your ability to give credit to the Iraqi people, who at great risk exercised their right to control their own destiny.

The following was posted on The Middle Ground on Monday morning. It is just the first two paragraphs...you will find the rest of the story fascinating and inspiring.

Your Monday Assignment
Being Right on Iraq and Hollywood Endings

Officially, it's Monday morning and I hope I'm not too late getting this idea out to people. The world of the right or should I say "the sane, freedom loving people of America", have come up with an idea to show our solidarity with the Iraqi people. Of course, I already suggested it on Sunday, but some folks have decided we should make it a national idea. I'm for it.

On Monday, find a blue ink pad or blue marker or blue pen (or purple: Indian ink turns purple and then black eventually, take your pick) and color your right index finger (not the whole thing, just up to the first knuckle). This has two parts actually: solidarity with the Iraqi people and giving terrorist the finger. Of course, if you feel the need to paint a different finger blue, I'll understand.
