Obama has a new book coming out tomorrow

and Fox Nation has no problem with trying to turn it into shit right off the bat.

Sigh.

Michael Berry claims he will interview GWB tomorrow morning.  I wonder if Michael Berry will do anything more that throw softballs.  Or perhaps he will flub it and ask the same question twice and then get mad when GWB points out that he’s already asked it.  Or perhaps Michael Berry will ask GWB what was on his hat when he announced “Mission Accomplished”.

Enough of the inside baseball on Michael Berry.

I hope President Obama’s little book does well.

 

The Lovely Bones

I met up with an old friend today.  We had brunch at a French place in the Village — authentic French Onion Soup (delicious) and a sandwich on a baguette — and then saw The Lovely Bones.  I read the book not long after it came out.  I need to read the book again and see the film again.

At one point I was certain that Saoirse Ronan was someone who she turns out not to be and I can’t seem to find if one particular song is what I think it is.

I like the film.  I want to see it again.  The part about Lidnsey was better than I expected.  The visuals were beautiful.  I particularly liked the smashed bottles on the beach.
