over in PA-12 doing short interviews and highlighting more interesting ads. Huntley who was busy attending a pair of First communions thinks that highlighting the ad is a mistake, since if a person goes to Factcheck.org to see what it says it shows a critique both the Critz ad AND this Burns one.

However the $142k from SEIU, now that’s significant, can Stacy/Brinkley find some SEIU for Burns people, that would really heat things up.

Meanwhile since neither Tucker nor Ricochet have made an offer to the new conservative Huntley & Brinkley I guess we will have to fend for ourselves.

You will have to wait till the end of the month for my swag/pitch.

My review of Peter Hitchens newly released volume The Rage Against God via the Amazon vine program is available at Amazon.com here.

Although I agree with his premise I must confess I think his brother writes better.

My latest examiner piece is one of opinion Romance and Reality is up at Examiner.com, a peek:

Yet as the activists cheered the NBA’s Lakers prepare to go to Arizona to play for the NBA west title. The injustice of the law is apparently not sufficent to risk the wrath of LA fans or the NBA’s bottom line. (The Highland park Ill girls team is not so lucky.)

You can find this and my other writing for Examiner.com here. Every time you read and share one of my articles it is as if you are putting a couple of cents in DaTipJar.

Bruins 2010, in NY they must be smiling

In C. S. Forester’s second novel Ship of the Line there is a passage where Hornblower presses 80 men from for East India Company ships in violation of law. When the pressed men are mustered on the deck the crew of the Sutherland, many of the pressed men themselves, grin at someone else meeting what fate had thrown at them.

Last night the Philadelphia Flyers completed a most improbable comeback not only from being down 3 games to none, but the Bruins led 3-0 in the first period and Philly scored 4 unanswered goals to win the game and the day.

In Boston there is scorn:

Only the Bruins could lose a 3-0 lead twice in the same series.

Only the Bruins could lose a Game 7 on a power-play goal after getting called for too many men on the ice.

In Philly there is happiness but caution:

Defenseman Chris Pronger said that the Flyers were proud to overcome a 3-0 series deficit, but that they were still on a mission.

“It’s great to be a part of history, but we’re eight wins away from where we want to be,” he said.

In the comments page of the New York Daily News came this edited for property:

Officially worse than the Yankees in 2004! Hahahahahahahaha!

Lucky for me I don’t really follow hockey. Now if it was the Red Sox…
