All in all, Today was a good day... I think.

Figured I should take a moment to link out a couple of news items that will be good news to those with opinions similar to my own.

1: Elected Officials... Pissed as well, or just doing their job? You Decide.

Either way I'm happy to see it. We'll see if it produces anything. Still as much of a cynic as I am, I can't help but hope.

2: I never Liked 50-cent as an artist... but I find myself liking his counter-Kanye comments.

Kanye, btw, will be in conert here in OKC in the next couple months. Not sure how well his show will sell. After his comments, and knowing the area, only the ignorant or die-hard fans will be in attendance. Myself I may buy a 50-cent ticket next time he comes through. Not sure if I'm stupid enough, being a nerdy white-boy, to attend, as I don't really enjoy his music. Albiet a bit late, I'm happy someone in the rap subculture is countering Kanye's statements. It may only be a small gesture on his part, and on mine. But I don't think it could have been better said: "I think people responded to it the best way they can." ..."What KANYE WEST was saying, I don't know where that came from."

And so maybe today the earth has cooled by a degree or two.
