Unfinished Business

I didn't watch Oprah's Lance Armstrong interview, but I saw the clips and read the stories.  The man has zero remorse, and I'm ashamed that I've wasted bandwidth writing about him here.

The same goes for Manti Teo.  Stupidity is not a crime, so too many have wasted too much time on this-- unless the sanctimonious Golden Domers knew what was going on.  Didn't the problems of the "football above all else" schools teach Notre Dame anything?

Once again, when elected officials can't provide real answers, they resort to the old "these were not random acts" line.  Three people were shot within twelve hours in Wilkes-Barre Thursday.  Two died.  Nice try, but knowing these were not random acts doesn't make me feel any better.  There are creeps out there with no regard for human life.  Innocent people can get killed.  Residents deserve some peace of mind.  "Not random acts" doesn't cut it.

Regardless of how you feel about President Obama, watching any presidential inauguration helps you feel good about your country.  We do democracy right.
