Tuesday's video: The State of the Union from Washington to Trump

She’d rather be on TV Tuesday night

To be honest, I did not watch the Grammys. I have not since President Reagan.   
After all, how long can you watch actors give one-sided political statements?  It would be more interesting, sort of like the British Parliament, if both sides got up and called each other something.
But no, the Grammys are “one way” when it comes to politics and that’s why I watched American Graffiti.  At least Wolfman Jack does not get in your face with politics.
As I learned on Monday morning, Mrs. Clinton made a surprise appearance and read from Fire and Fury:     
The segment resulted in wild applause from the star-studded crowd. But not all were pleased. United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the bit. However, the harshest words came from Donald Trump Jr. 
After the show, Grammys Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich said getting Clinton to appear in the skit wasn’t tough. However, he credited Corden with sealing the deal. 
“She kind of took a couple of days to say ‘yes,’ but ultimately she saw the script, she knew what we were doing and she liked it.” 
Clinton recorded the segment near her home on Friday, the Grammys producer added.
He also admitted that he was aware the cameo was receiving some backlash, but said they stand by what they did.
Well, I guess that was the B-side of the “bit….es”.       
In the end, it probably turned people off. After all, am I the only who finds it disgusting to watch U.S. performers talk about repression? They should read The Gulag Archipelago or talk to people who live under serious repression and get the real story.
It seems that the ratings were another disaster, with the lowest viewership since the awards first aired. Furthermore, I’m sure that Mrs. Clinton would have rather be delivering the State of the Union on Tuesday night.
She is silly, this woman named  Hillary Clinton!
P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.

Michael Young and the Hall of Fame

Michael Young will be up for a Hall of Fame vote in a couple of years.   He probably won't make it but will get a lot of votes.

During his time in Texas, Young was a consistent hitter and won a few Gold Gloves:   .300 average, 2,375 hits, 185 HR & 1,030 RBI.

Again, he won't make it but Young was a really good player.

June 2006: A soldier wrote a letter to the NY Times!

T. F. Boggs was a 24-year-old sergeant in the Army Reserves back in Iraq in 2006.  

This is what he wrote to The NY Times:
"Thank you for continually contributing to the deaths of my fellow soldiers. You guys definitely provide a valuable service with your paper. Why without you how would terrorists stay one step ahead of us? 
I would love to hear a response as to why you deemed revealing this program a necessity, but that will probably come as soon as the government decides to finally put you guys behind bars where you belong."

Grammy's too political.............
