Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the beautiful, sunny, windy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this brisk Saturday morning, a little late in the day, the 28th day of April, 2012, just returning from a mountain bike ride along the winding roads of Cotuit, ‘where the ocean meets the wood’, being nearly knocked to the ground by the fierce gusts coming out of the northeast, screaming off the cold waters of the Atlantic, creating that natural air conditioning WE here on the Cape and islands take for granted from ‘time to time’… Tonight, in case you didn’t hear, is the White House Correspondents Dinner, televised LIVE at 10 p.m., a must SEA if you are into that whole ‘not taking yourself too seriously kind of thing’, bringing the elites of modern day news, political figures, celebrities and others together for a night of taking pot shots at one another, all in good fun, hopefully, making US all that much more aware that in the end WE all put our pants on one leg at a time. Last year, our fine President, Barack Obama, led the way with hits on ‘the Donald’, Mr. Trump, and his famous ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ show. The President focused on the fact that the “Omaha Steak Company” was not all that impressed with the managerial style of the “Celebrity’ crew, thus, it was up to said ‘Donald’ to fire not “Meatloaf”, rather, Gary Busey, who is, after all, an easy target and was not even aware of his own firing, let alone being upset about something of which he was unaware… As the President stated, “it was these kind of decisions that kept me up at night…”. My prayer is that the nation and indeed the world may ‘ENLIGHTEN UP’ just a tad, even if for only a few hours, perhaps seeing the Love behind all of the resentments, misunderstandings, anger and in some cases, outright hate that just does not have a place any longer in this late year of 2012 America… Who knows, maybe we will see Mitt Romney coming forward and stating what he really feels. Namely, that his blue print for some kind of sane health care in this great land was HIS idea in the first place, a FACT President Obama I’m sure would be happy to concede. All I can say is this– Jimmy Fallon is a genius (can Jimmy Kimmel can keep up?) and has America’s permission to keep on slinging those Capital One Ads as long as he wishes. ‘Cause who doesn’t like more money and who does not just LOVE an adorable baby? Just ask the Romney’s, they’ll tell YA! Have a nice day and evening folks, remembering to tune in to this White House spoof on the whole crazy, madcap, zany routine of covering politics in this early hour of the twenty-first century… God Bless US ALL! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
