R Wrong, Payments, The Season

Remember when Dems were being ridiculed because we couldn’t get our act together on Iraq. Well, funny how an election changes the scenery. It looks like the Rs are all over the place on W’s war. It also looks like they have completely blown off a year’s worth of Jimmy Boy’s hard work. Now that’s sad.

The Chron had a blurb this past weekend on where to send your fine payment if you get caught by a red light running camera. According to the Chron, you have to mail your fine payment to Ohio – Ohio? So what? When you pay your Chron subscription, you send your payment to Prescott, Arizona – Arizona?

Commentary isn’t going to say anything about The Vince’s team winning yesterday or Reggie, Reggie, Reggie’s team clinching a playoff spot, or H-Town’s QB throwing 4 INTS.

We went to check out Will Smith’s “Pursuit of Happyness.” Go see it. I won’t be surprised if Smith is nominated for an Oscar for his performance.

Speaking of Christmas, when the fella that saw Santa said he “settled down for a long winter’s nap,” how long was he talking about – the night? Nowadays we just crash. Nobody settles down for a long winter’s nap anymore, except maybe on Christmas Eve.

Speaking of cool Christmas tunes, The Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “Christmas Canon” ranks up there, but wasn’t that the same tune they sang in Robert Redford’s “Ordinary People?” It sure does sound the same.

I got a Christmas card from former Houston City Council candidate George Hittner – he sure does like Miss Mona – his dog.

Props go to the ‘Stros for sending out to us ticket holders a real purdy Christmas tree ornament. I think Pam-In-Charge’s folks did right on this one.
