So here are some things I am still following.
-- TPaw still thinks we can cut ourselves out of this mess. I guess he is really prepared to hand the state over to the Left who will at least make the painful, yet common sense decisions to do it right.
-- I support the idea of a new Viking's stadium, but it should be contingent on the permanent retirement of 'The Mole' that is Favré. I still think the better funding mechanism would be to take all the tax revenues that we would lose if the Vikes left, spread it over 20 years, and I think you';; find that is a nice chunk of change. Argument is that is general fund money, my retort is it is money we won;t have anyway if they leave.
-- The stellar detective work in the Times Square Bombing attempt showed how inter-agency cooperation, persistence, and the goal of protecting Americans, works. I couldn't help but think of a scene in '24' as the agents stormed the place at the last minute, while still sitting on the Tarmac.
-- Speaking of '24', this season, claimed to be the final on TV, is shaping up to be quite a season. I am also watching the first 5 days as I didn't get into the series until day 6. I was not really impressed with Day 6, and after watching the first 4 1/2 days and I can see why diehard fans were just as discouraged. Each of the first 5 days has gotten better and better, so a Day 6 let down was inevitable.
I have heard mixed reviews on what happens next for '24'. A movie is almost assured, but 'Keifer explained that it was a way to do 24 hours in a 2 hour movie allowing for travel and flexibility that just doesn't exists doing real time.
Sutherland also confirmed what we’ve been hearing for awhile now: the movie version will get rid of the trademark real-time aspect, instead condensing events into one two-hour movie. The movie will likely take place over one 24-hour period, but nothing has been made official yet as far as the time-framing.In another story I read most recently, the Movie will be 2 hours of real time to set up a 22 episode 9th day in 2011/12 I have more confidence in the former, than the latter.
OK, what's on your mind?
