What’s on the web?
- Last night’s McCain / Obama debate. I’m not sure I like the phrase “Who won the debate,” because it’s not an event that should have clear winners or losers. Should be more like “Who presented themselves better” and “Who’s responses were you more in agreement with.” But…
Anyway, speaking of McCain, it seems CBS is embarrassed about an un-aired video clip David Letterman used when McCain declined to do an interview with him, citing “heading back to Washington amid the financial crisis.” McCain was then seen getting ready to film a segment with Katie Couric instead. Burn.
- Is the trouble just beginning for America? Washington Mutual implodes, Wachovia Bank is on the brink, while other countries in the world are mocking us, like Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez who said: “The Americans harass us and attack us… (they) want to buy the world with paper that does not have any value. Washington expected to remedy the current crisis “by running the money printer, and I strongly doubt we’ll be able to resolve the crisis that way.”
- Baseball season is down to the wire. Seems as if the NY Mets are once again on the brink of disaster. Philly has all but cliched the NL East, and the surging Milwaukee Brewers have now taken the lead in the NL Wildcard race. The Mets truly need a miracle to have a chance. Also, the AL Central is a virtual dead heat…
- What happened to all this rain? All these weather warnings and flood watches are still being issued – but it didn’t seem to rain much here. I guess we got lucky again.
- Sad news. American legend Paul Newman passed away. He was 83.
