Trend Or Blip?

I see that the Zogby poll has Obama behind McCain for the first time.

Well, Obama did warn us: "The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations."

That's good. As Clint Eastwood said in some movie, a man has got to know his limitations.

The other good news is, he's young!

So even if this time he somehow encounters rejection,
he'll still have a chance again at a later election.

If McCain blows this game,
you can't say the same.

Usain Bolt, from Jamaica, took gold and set world sprinting records in both the 100 and 200 meter run.

Of course they're calling him Lightning Bolt.

It's one of those "truth is stranger than fiction" things. If you put him in a serious book, people would say his name was too corny.

Reality isn't bound
by the rule that names shouldn't sound
like an overly cute
pun on a stand-out attribute.
