Sports, society, politics... you know, the usual random topics.

Whew, nothing like a win for the "home team" to cheer me up. The Pistons played a nearly perfect game and won Game 4 against the Spurs in a rout. By the way, I managed to avoid the irritating-Spurs-fan coworker last Monday, and now that the Pistons are winning, he doesn't seem nearly as interested in coming over to my desk to talk basketball.

Bush today criticized the elections in Iran as being unfair and dishonest. Iran replied, "Oh, I guess we need more butterfly ballots, then."

A poll today indicated that most Americans consider movie stars to be poor role models. You know, that might be true... but then, I'll bet that most movie stars consider Americans to be poor role models, too. I mean, yeah, maybe Hugh Grant got caught with a prostitute, but so did thousands of regular dudes all over the country, too. I wish people would consider, for a moment, that movie stars spend their entire lives under a microscope, and so maybe their occasional failures are just a little bit more salient than those of Mrs. Jones across the street.

The same poll indicated that most people think movies are getting worse, not better. I have mixed feelings about that, too... because while I decry some of the junk that comes out of Hollywood these days, it's not like every movie from the 1970s was exactly cinematic gold, either. I think we selectively choose to forget the bad movies, and we get sentimental about our old favorites. And just maybe, our expectations and standards for movies are going up, too.

Halliburton has received a $30 million contract to build a new gulag prison in Guantanamo Bay. There are just SO many things wrong about that.
