…the reason why I enjoyed this episode so much, I mean in addition to the fact that Matt Smith makes a simply wonderful Doctor who unlike the 9th and 10th is not constantly tortured in the way he looks at things.

What made the episode special is the Doctor dealing with young Amelia Pond.

After these scenes with young Amelia the Doctor is getting ready to leave

With glee she runs to her room, packs a bag and waits for his return.

Since 1963 little kids have dreamed of having the doctor land in their yard and visit them. They have imagined that the doctor would take them away in the TARDIS to see all of time and space. Millions upon millions of Britons and people from the Commonwealth have dreamt those dreams.

And in that moment watching that scene they smiled and ever so briefly imagined that they were kids again and it was them sitting waiting to go.

I must admit I imagined it too.

My newest article for the Examiner deals with the Post (Tea) party Summit in Danvers Massachusetts on the May 8th in Danvers Massachusetts. It being VE day I started with a Rommel quote:

It is said that when describing the American Army he faced in North Africa General Erwin Rommel the Desert Fox said: “I never saw an Army that did so poorly in their first battle and learned so much by their second.”

I talked a bit about the training that was given. Considering the success today

Another joins the unstoppable Axis of Fedora!

in Utah how much more successful will the Tea Party people be when they are schooled in the political arts…

…and wearing Fedoras!

If you want to check out my other Examiner articles and add to my pay per click totals they are available here.

We caught up to Anita MonCrief at the Post (Tea) Party Summit just outside of Boston (Danvers). I must admit I’m a sucker for people who went to Catholic School when they were young:

You know Charles Blow says we are all racists at the tea parties so maybe she was an optical illusion.
