The blogger who had some success with a column about "William Randolph Hearst, Charles Foster Kane, and Rupert Murdoch," was almost inspired enough to write another one with the headline:   "Al Capone, Don Corleone, and Rupert Murdoch."  

 

Folks who think that some of the items that the World's Laziest Journalist uses in his columns are too esoteric, arcane, and inscrutable, might not get the joke about the "inside baseball" humor for movie fans hidden in the fact that the Berkeley Seven Flashback film series followed "Godfather" (Part I) with the rather obscure "From Here to Eternity."  

 

Some folks in the San Francisco Bay Area who prefer the Summer of 1968 to this year's, were given an offer they couldn't refuse:   "One grand prize winner will also receive a tip for two on the Magic Bus."   Ken Kesey fans will want to check out the promo being offered by the San Francisco Bay Guardian and also click on the hippie bus San Francisco web site.

 

Will the summer of 2011 come to be known as "the Summer of Republican Love for the Debt Crisis and all the political opportunities that came with it"?

 

Has union busting spread into the realm of American Sports?

 

Is there a bridge between religion and psychology?   To this columnist it seems more like a "cusp area."   Are we going to have to write a "Got Philosophy?" column after the Debt Crisis is settled and this historic summer comes to a close?   If we do, maybe we could cross post it there?

 

Speaking of Global Warming, why isn't Fox News refuting the concept by using some live feeds from Australia where it is winter and there is sure to be some fair and balanced winter wonderland scenes to cancel out the deleterious effects that the American heat wave is having on skeptics of the so-called scientific theory?   Who doesn't love video of cute reporterettes in ski bunny costumes?   Refute that, Mr. Peabody!

 

Alan Ginsberg has said:   "I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix . . ."   (Where they having a Debt Crisis debate back then, too?)

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
