Would You Pay $2 Billion for This?

By , March 28, 2012 9:57 am

So the Dodgers sold for $2 billion today. That great price was certainly related to this (from MLB).

Here Gibson talks about that night.

And here’s one way around MLB, which maintains a pretty tight grip on TV rights.

Who’s making that awful noise?

A. Sean Hannity?
B. Sarah Palin?
C. Bill O’Reilly?
D. All three?

And I’m a conservative Republican. Go figure.

Rod Stewart and Jeff Beck and “People Get Ready”

People get ready
There’s a train a-coming
You don’t need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesels humming
Don’t need no ticket
You just thank the Lord

People get ready
For the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers
From coast to coast
Faith is the key
Open the doors and board them
There’s room for all
Among the loved the most

There ain’t no room
For the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind just
To save his own
Have pity on those
Whose chances are thinner
Cause there’s no hiding place
From the Kingdom’s throne

So people get ready
For the train a-comin
You don’t need no baggage
You just get on board !
All you need is faith
To hear the diesels humming
Don’t need no ticket
You just thank, you just thank the Lord



Im getting ready
Im getting ready
This time I’m ready
This time I’m ready

Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis

Can’t wait to see this:

And I’m soon going to get to. Wherever I go, I take time to visit important religious buildings. For example, no visit to Washington D.C. is complete without a visit to the National Cathedral.

Sunday Music on a Monday

By , March 19, 2012 9:54 am

I drove from Cody to Orem on Sunday and didn’t have time to post, so this is a make-up.

Nothing says peaceful better than a chant. This one by the Benedictine Monks will do just fine:

If you’re ever in Utah, take some time to visit the Abbey of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity, home to some very kind monks who make some great honey.

You Can Live Without Facebook and Twitter

I’ve been largely offline the last few days because of family obligations in Cody. Thus, I’ve spent less, much less, time on the Internet generally and on Facebook and Twitter specifically. Not all bad, that.

God’s Country — Safe Again

By , March 15, 2012 11:53 pm

Just arrived in Cody, Wyoming for a long weekend of work on my brother’s estate. Always a bit amazed at how many times I’ve traveled the 460 miles from Orem, often in the dark, with no accidents. Someone is watching over me. Maybe the one after whom this part of the world is named?

Now We Know Who’s Hiding Under that Black Helmet

For the longest time, the person dressed as the Dark Knight has been a mystery:

Wonder no more:

Fighting Until Florida
Speaking to supporters in Birmingham, Alabama, Gingrich vowed to remain in the campaign, saying he would fight all the way to the party’s national convention in Tampa, Florida.

Still, with victories in only South Carolina (PCSTSC) and Georgia, the former Georgia congressman and U.S. House speaker now faces a struggle for his political survival.
