This could get interesting-Dennis Kucinich has demanded a recount of the New Hampshire Primary “Mr. Kucinich’s letter cited “unexplained disparities between hand-counted ballots and machine-counted ballots.” Salon’s reporter is skeptical, but thinks the recount should go on. Needless to say, Obama would have the most to gain as the hand count precincts (and the exit polls) had Obama ahead. Only the Diebold Computer counted precincts went in Hillary’s favor. I doubt this is the incident of Diebold’s notorious vulnerability to hacking that many investigators have been looking for, but its critical the hand count go on.
The Packers this afternoon were like the Pack of Lombardi’s era: Pure execution. Run to Daylight.
One question, can some football historian tell me which NFL star was the first to introduce the “Rasta” haircut? Bob Marley would surely be smiling.
What’s up with Country Music? On my way home from the pool this morning, I was flipping through the radio channels and came to what I thought was the country music station, but for the next ten minutes I listened to music that would not have been out of place on any “easy listening station”. Everybody sounded like old Eagles records or sappy piano based ballads. Of course I’m old school and the best moment for me in Country Music was when my friend T Bone Burnett won the Grammy for Oh Brother, Where Art Thou. This huge success (15 million CD’s sold, I think) spawned a genre more to my taste called Alt. Country. But the old Country radio stations would never really play it. It would have been one thing if they had played the old classics like George Jones and Tammy Wynette, but this mellow country stuff is dreck.
BTW-T Bone’s new Record with Robert Plant and Alison Krauss-Raising Sand is amazing. Is it country? Who cares? Its beautiful.
