Stones

Well, Mick Jagger, 62, Keith Richards, 62, Charlie Watts, 64, and Ron Wood, 58, can still outdo any other rock and roll band in a live show. The Rolling Stones provided the first worthwhile half-time Superbowl show I have ever seen. Wholesome, too!

Now I can turn the game off.

Sunday photo safari



Lance and I took a Sunday afternoon photo trip, once again going around behind suburban Rindal. The sky tonight was pastel, and the horizontal lines in the fresh-blown snow makes the hills look a bit like the sky.



One doesn't realize how blue everything is until one looks at the photos on a screen.


A new role for government

As a part of a deficit reduction bill, Congress approved $750 million to improve marriages. What is that all about? Since when is it government's role to improve people's communication? Can you imagine how unbearably stupid a government-sponsored marriage improvement seminar would be? Where are the conservative advocates of smaller, less-intrusive government when we need them?

Oh, that's right, they're in power.
