Bloomberg going Beto

A week ago, I thought that Michael Bloomberg might be a formidable foe to President Trump, especially as an independent outflanking the hysterical left running the Democrat Party.  
As an independent, Bloomberg would have been able to talk about his successes fighting crime and his ideas for the economy.  
Well, drop that!  Bloomberg is going “Beto” and pandering to the left big time.  This is the latest example, from the New York Post:   
Former mayor Michael Bloomberg offered a stunning apology on Sunday for his administration’s reliance on stop-and-frisk policing, admitting to a Brooklyn church, “I was wrong, and I am sorry.”
The bombshell reversal ends Bloomberg’s zealous, years-long defense of one of the most contentious parts of his three-term legacy — and comes as the billionaire political moderate positions himself for an expected 2020 Democratic presidential run.
“I was totally focused on saving lives. But as we know, good intentions aren’t good enough,” Bloomberg told congregants at East New York’s Christian Cultural Center, one of the city’s largest black churches.
Too “focused on saving lives”?  What a travesty. Wonder what the police officer walking the streets of New York have to say to that?
We are watching a lot more than politicians pandering to the left.  You can expect that. This is pandering to the wing of the party that sees the police as an enemy.  Furthermore, it is avoiding the reality of inner-city crime.  
So goodbye, Michael Bloomberg.  You are done as a national candidate.

We remember Dan Haggerty (1941-2016)


We remember Dan Haggerty who was born in Wisconsin on this day in 1941.  He died in 2016 at age 74.   In the late 1970s, Haggerty played a mountain man in the TV series "The lfe and times of Grizzly Adams".

It started out as a movie and ended up on TV.   It was a real contrast to the other stuff on TV at the time:

We remember Garrick Utley (1939-2014)

We remember Garrick Utley.  He was one of those TV newsmen that many of us grew up watching:
"Clifton Garrick Utley was born Nov. 19, 1939, in Chicago. His parents, Clifton Utley and Frayn Utley, were pioneering broadcast journalists in Chicago, and he began accompanying them to studios at an early age.He graduated in 1961 from Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., then served in the Army before joining NBC as John Chancellor’s assistant in the Brussels bureau. (Chancellor later became anchor of the “Nightly News.”)By 1964, the 24-year-old Mr. Utley was reporting from war zones in Vietnam, earning $62.50 a week, he later recalled.After covering major international events, Mr. Utley served as a weekend anchor of “Nightly News” in the 1970s, reported on U.S. presidential elections and prepared a series of in-depth programs on civil rights, foreign affairs and other topics.He won two of broadcast journalism’s most prestigious honors: the Overseas Press Club of America’s Edward R. Murrow Award for coverage of the Cold War and the Peabody Award for his contributions to a 1985 NBC special report, “Vietnam: Ten Years Later.”
My memories are of Vietnam but he also reported from Prague 1968.

It was his 3rd MVP award of the decade!
