Random Thoughts 1/15/13

  • Did you like the most recent Muppet movie?  The next one, with different humans, is due out in a year, on March 21, 2014.  Just a few weeks later, on April 4th, we get another Captain America movie.  Then there is fourth Jurassic Park movie due in June of '14; not sure if that's worthwhile or not.
  • Best cake ever.
  • Rock Chalk, Jayhawk.  Another number-one seed is extremely likely.  Let's just hope for a good tournament.
  • Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is January 27th at our church, where we'll have a special guest speaker. 
  • The Golden Globes came out and apparently I have been living under a rock.  I can hardly find a single title that I've actually seen among the winners.  That said, more than half of these films are on my to-do list.
  • 45 years and $200 billion later, a new study shows that the Head Start program has little or no effect on the disadvantaged preschool children it was designed to help.  I bet our government throws more money at it because that's how socialism works (or doesn't).
  • Boeing's amazing 787 Dreamliner has had a few notable hiccups in recent weeks and is now "under review" by the FAA.  It seems pretty minor but those aircraft are complicated machines with some advanced technology in place and everything must absolutely be right before you want to trust your life to one.  Frankly, I'd jump at the chance but I don't fly much at this stage in my life.
  • Do the Chiefs draft the best player available?  Do they know a QB worth taking will be there later?  Ugh… thinking about the Chiefs makes me ill.
