Happy Thanksgiving

worst videographer. ever. 

but it got the job done. This is UCLA police 'escorting' a man out of the library. Just to keep things moving, they tazed him about five times, especially when the freshly-tazed bastard wouldn't get off the ground.

Is there something wrong with our generation that people aren't willing to straight out stop such heinous abuses of power?

A new tune? 

Does anyone remember a music award event in which Elton John performed with, or at least embraced, Eminem? Why did he do that? I can't remember whether he was showing his support for the freedom to express any point of view, or whether he believed the guy's music actually supported homosexuals.

If it's the former, is he now changing his mind by supporting a ban on all organized religion?

Stogies? Why not! 

The UN is calling for an end to the US embargo on Cuba.

I don't know much about China, so maybe you sophisticate Economist readers can chime in here, but my sense is that allowing trade can be an economic strategy to ween a country from communism. Given the power hand-off to Fidel's brother, and that he can't last too much longer, it might be a good time to start building stronger economic relationships.

Is this good?

Run Forrest..... 

This dude rocks. After running 50 marathons in 50 days, one in each state, he's bored. So, having finished the tour with the NY marathon, why not run it the next day backwards?

Then, cause, you know, we're even more bored.... run home. I mean NY to San Fran here folks.

I can't tell you how many times I've heard that the problem with Latin culture is the machismo, and the homophobia that goes with it.

Well, I guess Colorado shouldn't talk much, regardless of the republic nestled 'neath the flatirons. Mexico has us beat.

takin' it easy... 

I'm bummed I didn't realize this was available, and am damn glad I found it. With bloglines, you can program your page to monitor all the blogs you like to read. Then, instead of checking each and every one to see if there's anything new, you look at one page.

The bummer is all the quality procrastination time I can no longer justify by rolling through a laundry list of blogs, only to start over immediately in case anything has changed.

Update: after posting this and not seeing it in my new lovely blogline, I realize it's not exactly instant. But the point remains.

No beer and No TV make Miguel something something 

I was supposed to call Lucky this weekend, but like the last 10 weekends, I have found myself with to much work to do.

Probably for the best. Suddenly all I can think of is how I am actually Napoleon.

I think everybody knows or has at least met someone like this. 

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
