Darwin said it best: “Nature is a trip, vato.”


Okay, so I’m the dork who said a PBS program was the best tv show he’d seen recently. But riddle me this, cool kids. Who’s the better dancer: James Brown, Michael Jackson, or the Red-Capped Mannequin? (Even I know it’s not jungle ornithologists. Mad props to her, though, for being such a good sport on the tv.)

    I’m speachless. Who says that God doesn’t have a sense of humor? I honestly don’t know how to follow that except with another quote:

    Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine. — Sir Arthur Eddington (1882-1944), English astronomer …

    It absolutely cracked me up when I saw it on PBS over the weekend. The combination of the bird and the music, on a PBS program — it was too much. The other bird — the first one — was goofy, too. Reminded me of Forrest Gump, dangling upside down from that tree to impress Jenny.

    I can’t figure a way to tie this in to any intelligent words on the birds, and I don’t mean to hijack the thread – again, but I wanted to get in a quick prediction before the polls close this latest Super Tuesday:

    I think both Texas and Ohio will be close, leaving the difference in delegate counts between Hillary and Obama little changed.

    One commentator said that, since there are no winner take all Dem primaries left, it’s very likely that neither candidate will come to the convention with enough delegates to win outright, leaving the decision to the Super Delegates. If it looks that way after tonight, Hillary stays in all the way, regardless of wins or losses, as long as Obama can’t quite make the numbers to win outright. She knows that this is her best – and maybe last – shot, and back room deals with Super Delegates are things the Clintons can do well.

    The bumper sticker they had in Texas didn’t have it quite right. Don’t count her out until the house falls on her and they pry the ruby slippers off her cold, dead feet.
