Odds & Sods

So what’s new in the world? The country elected the first black president; pirates surprise some, but not all; the economy is predicted to get worse, not better; the Jets/Giants roll along; and more...

Barack Obama ran a very good campaign and continued to build on the use of technology to get his message out. I hope he does well for the sake of the country.

Somali pirates have become more brazen by now taking over oil tankers and the like. Funny how some people claim they didn’t see this coming, but the story of Somali pirates has been out there for the last couple of years, however, only recently have they become more ambitious. Some say they are al-Qaeda-backed while others think that they built their own cache of high-tech weaponry on their own. I’m going to bet that they are indeed backed by Qaeda, who claimed among other things in this article at the beginning of the month that they now control a major part of the lawless country of Somalia.

I have heard some experts on the news shows saying that the economy will continue to get worse before it starts to rebound. Glad to see that Citigroup will, thus, take the taxpayers money and pay for naming rights at the Mets' new stadium. Click here for more.

Alan Colmes and Sean Hannity will be going solo on the Fox News Channel. I will most definitely miss the Colmes-Hannity tag team. I always found them to have great chemistry.

The Giants have been rolling all season, but after the Jets beat the previously undefeated Tennessee Titans, New York media types are now talking Super Bowl. We’ll see…it’s a long way before the “big game.”

Anne Rice has announced on her Website that she is going to be penning a new series of books. Click me for the story. You can bet I am eagerly awaiting Rice's new works as they never, ever disappoint.

Oh yeah, and Ann Coulter is back with a new book. Here's the story courtesy of the Drudge Report. I’m sure she’s laughing all the way to the bank...

Life is certainly an "Amazing Journey" with some "Sparks" thrown in!
